2 Government Construction Strategy (for England)
In May 2011, the UK Government published the Construction Strategy aimed at reducing the cost of public sector assets by up to 20% by The strategy calls “for a profound change in the relationship between public authorities and the construction industry to ensure the Government consistently gets a good deal and the country gets the social and economic infrastructure it needs for the long-term”.

3 BIM strategy Basic problems exist with procuring public assets, which
have been known for over 100 years, but little as yet has been achieved in resolving them. The Construction Strategy defines a number of strategic objectives, which collectively will overcome these problems. In particular, a strategic objective has been set to achieve maturity Level 2 building information modelling (BIM) on all public sector asset procurement, with equal applicability to private sector building, infrastructure, refurbishment and new-build projects. This will address the problem of information that is inaccurate, incomplete and ambiguous and results in unnecessary additional capital delivery costs amounting to 20-25% –

4 CIC’s Role


6 Task Group’s work to date
BIM protocol Work stages PAS 1192:2 BIM Task Group website BIM Hubs

7 BIM Protocol The key principles :
All parties should have the Protocol incorporated into their contract The same version of the Protocol and Appendices should be incorporated into each contract. The wording of the CIC BIM Protocol should not be amended The Protocol should detail all Building Information Models that are going to be produced by all parties The Appendices have to be completed with project specific information for all projects. This should be available from pre-appointment documentation such as the Employer’s Information Requirements. Changes to the Protocol and its Appendices should be treated as variations to the Contract

8 PAS 1192:2 The PAS includes: Taxonomy of terms
References to other relevant BSI standards, CPI guidance and other documents Definitions for Process and Data needs Roles and Responsibilities Sources for Key Templates for documents referenced in the PAS
