Following items need to be emphasized and discussed in more detail;

It is important to discuss the details and the methodology to keep the Model updated constantly and routinely during construction and Deliver the Model Electronically at the same time as the Keys are turned over. Final Payment shall not be made to the contractor without delivering the BIM file to the owner.

This article is right on the money. As corroborated by nearly everyone who has a pulse on the industry, such as Patrick McLearney, the Director of the AIA, BIM and sustainability will be the primary drivers of change and transformation of the AECO industry in 2008. In 2007, we made tremendous strides towards strategic BIM standards that will help the operational and tactical level BIM implementation and software creation. Addtionally, visionary software firms are meeting the demand for interoperability and high quality information management. As the NBIMS Testing Team Leader and speaking for the team collectively, we hope all these trends continue into 2008 and beyond.
