New BIM Information Protocol launched
BSI, the Centre for Digital Built Britain, the UK BIM Alliance and the Construction Industry Council yesterday released an Information Protocol to support BS EN ISO 19650-1 and 2.
The new Protocol has updated the CIC Protocol Second Edition and is a flexible and user friendly document which provides a template for reflecting ISO 19650-1 and 2 in any contract.
Beale & Co Senior Associate, Andrew Croft, is a co-author of the new protocol, alongside May Winfield from Buro Happold and Simon Lewis of Womble Bond Dickinson.
Andrew commented of the protocol: “The Information Protocol will support the implementation of BS EN ISO 19650, a key standard for the adoption of BIM, alongside other important guidance published by the UK BIM Framework. We would encourage the legal and construction industry to familiarise themselves with the Information Protocol and make appropriate use of the Information Protocol in all contracts to which BS EN ISO 19650 applies.”
Andrew has taken an influential role in BIM in the construction industry for the last 10 years, having contributed to the 2011 Government BIM strategy paper and being involved in drafting the first and second editions of the CIC BIM Protocol.
PBC Today has published an article based on the press release, which you can read here.
