Legal Considerations in Digital Practice and Building Information Modeling
This course explores digital trends in design and construction- such as building information modeling (BIM) – and investigates the ramifications digital developments have on project participants, project success and the public in general. Key topics will include the use and exchange of digital data, the impact of digital data and BIM use on project communication and efficiency, and other issues related to the use and transmission of digital data.
1. Explore new issues and trends in digital practice and building information modeling; discover business and practice implications to be considered by owners, architects and contractors; and assess the effects of these trends on practitioners and the public in general.
2. Understand roles and responsibilities in projects that utilize digital practice and building information modeling; and recognize their effects on traditional roles and how digital practice and BIM will minimize confusion and project delays and contribute to a more efficient process.
3. Analyze the potential liability associated with the transmission and use of digital data; including key issues associated with the appropriate transmission, maintenance, management and archiving of digital data and with post project uses of digital data for facilities management and other Owner related interests.
4. Discover the new AIA Contract Documents addressing digital practice and understand how they facilitate the responsible use and exchange of digital data, including BIM, on a project.

As agency president and CEO, he is responsible for creating, communicating, and implementing the organization’s vision, mission, and overall direction to benefit the company, clients and community.

Those very attributes are the foundation of WhiteSpace’s creative solutions and are continually reflected in the agency’s daily efforts.
Keeven openly shares his expertise and experience with the community through a variety of speaking engagements. He has presented to both students and professionals alike, from participating in round-table discussions to being a guest speaker at various conferences and chamber events. He has served on the executive advisory board of The University of Akron marketing department and as an advisory board member of the Ohio Film Office, based in Columbus, Ohio. Keeven currently serves on several area boards, including the Area Agency on Aging board of directors as the marketing chair and a nominations committee member.

Guest Speakers Roberto de Leon & Ross Primmer
De Leon & Primmer Architecture Workshop (DPAW) is a design studio with a focus on non-profit cultural & civic projects. DPAW’s working methodology draws inspiration from regional traditions of craft and fabrication, placing an emphasis on the potential of conventional materials and construction methods. Through an immersive process of research & investigation, the studio cultivates an understanding of contextual specificity as a nuanced relationship between place, time and local culture.
In implementing this approach, the Workshop purposefully embraces a rigor of ‘reduction’ aimed at a clarity and economy of design. The Workshop was chosen for the 2010 Design Vanguard by Architectural Record, the 2011 Emerging Voices by the Architectural League of New York, and the 2012 American Architecture Award by the Chicago Athenaeum and the European Centre For Architecture Art & Urban Studies. Most recently, DPAW received the 2013 American Institute of Architects National Honor Award for the Mason Lane Farm Operations Facility, a project which has garnered attention for its innovative use of passive sustainable strategies.
DPAW has been published widely and their work has been exhibited at various venues internationally, including the 2012 Istanbul Biennial, the 2011 Beijing International Design Triennial, and WOOD 2010 in Smaland, Sweden.
