Derek Nelson said: “From manual calculation of CPM programmes to 3D scanning of entire projects overlaid onto 7D BIM models with augmented reality in one [not nearly finished yet] working life, things have changed and are changing at pace. The role and responsibility of the expert remains constant with courts [and tribunals] becoming more vocal in their condemnation of experts that fail to perform that role and obligation. The session addressed some of those challenges. I am grateful to both Vivek Kapoor and Ashilee Schreiber for their thoughts and insights.”
