Government Construction Strategy (for
In May 2011, the UK Government published the
Construction Strategy aimed at reducing the cost of
public sector assets by up to 20% by 2016. 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
• infrastructure it needs for the long-term”.
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% –

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
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 preappointment documentation such as the
Employer’s Information Requirements.
Changes to the Protocol and its Appendices
should be treated as variations to the
PAS 1192:2
The PAS includes:
• Taxonomy of terms
• References to other
relevant BSI standards, CPI
guidance and other
• Definitions for Process and
Data needs
• Roles and Responsibilities
• Sources for Key Templates
