On 12 November 2020 the AIJA Real Estate Commission is having its first virtual Commission Day. With this new format, we will combine both scientific content and social parts.
The overall title for the scientific interventions is Real Estate and Digitalisation.
Johannes Meyer-Myklestad (our Vice-President, Board Director of buildingSMART Norway and partner at the law firm Selmer AS, Oslo) is in charge of the first presentation titled "Efficient and Digital Project Development Methodology and Construction“. Digitalization is changing the way we develop and build our construction projects. Through the use of BIM and new project development methodology (i.e. Virtual Design Construction), all parties in construction projects are collaborating earlier (early involvement) and more efficiently. Johannes will present how these concepts fit together and how they may be managed in tomorrow's construction contracts.
The second scientific intervention will host a panel discussing “Digitalization in real estate law: 100% digital and paper-less real estate transactions”. Thomas Seeber (partner at law firm Kunz Wallentin; AIJA Executive Committee member; founder and CEO of Realest8 Technologies) will lead the panel. Austria has just recently experienced the first 100% digital real estate transaction: no notary acts, no physical presence, only computers needed. Listen to how COVID-19 legislation has helped quicken the process to an entirely digital act, instead of lots of paperwork and meetings at the notary’s. The panel will also discuss similar developments in other countries.
Between the presentations, we will have our Commission meeting. Even though COVID-19 is still holding its grip on the world, we are confident that 2021 will allow AIJA to host at least some physical events, especially including the Annual Congress in Zurich and our Commission’s seminar on “Construction Litigation” (joint-seminar with the Litigation commission). We will discuss our contribution to these events.
Our commission day will conclude with a virtual social gathering. Depending on the number of participants, it will be either a speed dating or a gathering in a virtual conference room.
