The Construction Industry Council (CIC) publishes Second Edition Building Information Modelling (BIM) Protocol
CIC has today published the highly anticipated BIM Protocol Second Edition; the original BIM Protocol was first commissioned by CIC in 2013 as a response to the UK Government BIM Strategy. Now that the UK Government’s BIM mandate is in force and BIM is widely used, the Second Edition of the Protocol has been produced to reflect current practices and standards regarding the use of BIM.
The Protocol, drafted by international construction law specialists Beale & Company, remains the only standard contractual BIM protocol published in the UK. The second edition has been updated to reflect significant progress with standards and practices in relation to BIM, since 2013, and is being published following significant consultation with the construction industry, legal practitioners and standard contract publishing bodies.
