Second helpings: the second edition of the CIC BIM protocol

25 Apr 2018
The second edition of the CIC BIM protocol was published on 10 April 2018. It is intended to reflect current practices and standards and to be a more flexible document to use alongside different contractual arrangements. It will fit more easily with the other documents in the contractual matrix and shows a greater understanding of the need to integrate the legal and technical aspects of BIM, an issue which needs to be addressed to ensure that BIM projects have a clear and well defined delivery mechanism. As such it marks a significant development on the first edition and will certainly contribute towards the growing standardisation of BIM legal and contractual documentation, which is to be welcomed.
