Resolving construction disputes with technological evidence

BIM, or building information modeling, can be an important part of the construction process for builders in Texas. It can also be an important part of dispute resolution after a project has been completed. Contract disputes in the construction industry concern an average value of $21 million each, and these disputes take an average of 14 months to resolve. For active businesses, these costly and lengthy disputes can be important but also divert attention from central concerns, so minimizing the cost and duration of a construction dispute can be a key goal.
