The second edition of the Building Information Modelling (BIM) Protocol (the Protocol) has been released by the Construction Industry Council (CIC). The new edition of the Protocol reflects the current standards and practices for using BIM. It was prepared by Beale & Co for the CIC with the support of he CIC BIM Forum, the CIC Liability Panel, King's College Centre of Construction Law and other organisations such as the JCT, the NEC, .be, BSI, the ACE and other consultees. The Protocol, which was drafted for use with all common construction contracts and supports BIM working at Level 2, remains the only standard UK BIM protocol. It provides guidance in four sections at the start of the Protocol including an explanation of the changes made in the second editions, how to use it and what items appear in the appendices.
