Where the client’s requirements include the provision of a building information model (BIM), the technical requirements will need to be set out in the contract documentation. This should clearly establish who is to provide what information, in what timescale and to what format and detail.
This guide sets out some practical steps on using BIM with NEC3 Contracts, dealing with the contractual and technical matters that arise.
