The purpose of this article is to address the new challenges concerning liabilities arising from errors or defects in construction projects that employ new design methods and techniques such as BIM and new collaborative project delivery systems. Following an examination of some relevant legal issues, with particular emphasis on the Peruvian Civil Code, the authors propose that parties should clearly establish in their agreements the scope of work or services and the liability each of them should bear.
