Maybe I'm just borrowing trouble but I can't help wondering whether the data portions of BIM deliverables will present yet another opportunity for contradictions to sneak into contract documents. That is, will it be possible for data in the model or links to contradict information in specifications or drawings?
It's already a significant challenge to coordinate drawings and specifications.
When AE deliverables include things like COBie data, will there be new opportunities to inadvertently introduce contradictions?
I recognize that BIM, and BIM/spec integration, are inevitable. I'm even convinced it's a good thing.
It's just been my experience that every solution carries with it the seed of a new problem.
