CIC publishes second edition BIM Protocol 

Latest News Mon, Apr 16, 2018 8:02 AM

CIC has 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.

The Second Edition of the Protocol is closely aligned with PAS 1192-2 and therefore applies to information, not just models. It is also a more flexible document, which can be used alongside a range of different contractual arrangements. The Protocol now includes additional provisions in relation to security, an increasingly important issue, which reflects PAS 1192-5.

Andrew Croft, Associate at Beale & Company lead consultant responsible for drafting the second edition of the Protocol said: “We are very pleased to have been involved in what has been an extremely interesting project and hope that the second edition of the Protocol will help provide additional clarity as to how contractual obligations in relation to BIM are addressed.”

Graham Watts OBE, Chief Executive of CIC, said: “CIC has had a seven-year involvement with being at the leading edge of promoting best practice in BIM, which continues with the work of our BIM Forum. The Second Edition of the BIM Protocol demonstrated our ongoing commitment to the multi-professional, collaboration potential of BIM.”

Dale Sinclair, Director of Technical Practice, AECOM and Chair of the CIC BIM Forum: “The CIC BIM Protocol is a crucial component of the UK’s BIM level 2 suite of documents. We are delighted that this latest version updates the protocol in line with comments made since its inception. This is an important step forward as we move towards a collaborative digital future.”

“Professor David Mosey of King’s College London says: “We are very glad to see the important changes made in the second edition of the CIC BIM Protocol. These include clarification as to the duty of care and timing of Project Team Member contributions, reflecting findings from our research report Enabling BIM Through Procurement and Contracts."
