T ECHNOLOGY F OR IPD—B UILDING I NFORMATION M ODELING (BIM) IPD can be used with traditional computer-aided design (CAD) technologies for design, preparation of construction documents, and actual construction and its management, but it is best suited for use with the emerging technology known as building information modeling (BIM). Simply explained, BIM technology produces a virtual, three-dimensional model of the proposed building so that a complete digital version of the building is completed before its actual construction begins.

It can render the owner vulnerable to omissions and errors in the work, and it places an additional legal burden on the contractor. Therefore, the owner usually retains the services of the project architect to provide a third-party level of scrutiny to administer the construction contract. If not, the owner will retain another independent architect, engineer, or inspector to provide construction contract administration services. The contracting community favors this third-party oversight of its work.

The architect (as the owner’s representative) may be involved in the prescreening process. 13 PRACTICE QUIZ Each question has only one correct answer.
