Intellectual Property Rights (Data Exchange)
In any field, the professionals who stay ahead of trends in terms of problem avoidance or solving are those who are likely to be the most successful. The Intellectual Property Rights (Data Exchange) course is designed to provide that competitive career advantage for professionals in the rapidly developing fields of Building Information Modelling (BIM), Lean Construction (Lean) and Integrated Project Delivery (IPD).
Major projects of the future will be delivered using openBIM and IPD, and smart contractors of the future will deliver projects using Lean Construction. Such projects will introduce benefits for competent professionals, providing they demonstrate a solid understanding of the complexities of the integration of these delivery systems.
This subject provides useful knowledge regarding a range of intellectual property rights that may be encountered in a construction environment involving openBIM and IPD. It also covers the impacts of BIM / Lean / IPD on contract administration, including an understanding of clauses professionals should have in contracts to avoid pitfalls.
