CIC BIM Protocol - First Edition


The Protocol is an important document that provides the legal framework which will facilitate and promote the use of BIM, a technology which will radically change construction practices, while at the same time producing substantial savings. It has been prepared following extensive consultation with Construction Industry Council members and with end-users in the wider construction industry.

The Protocol is a contractual document which takes precedence over existing agreements. It places an obligation on parties to provide defined elements of their services within a model or models at defined stages in a project. There is also the requirement to appoint a party to the role of information management. The Protocol encourages collaborative working methods within project teams and it operates within the adoption of common standards.
