The UK Government described BIM as the “first truly global digital construction technology
. The industry is moving towards the adoption of BIM, and in turn NEC Contracts are supporting an increased integration of BIM into all projects.
NEC3 has always allowed for the technical requirements of BIM to be included in the contract documentation and NEC4 has introduced a new secondary option on Information Modelling, X10. This deals with issues around information modelling, information ownership, and liability of the parties. The Information Modelling option allows the Client to decide how it wants information to be created and specify that as part of the scope.
Following the launch of the new BIM protocol by CIC on 10 March, NEC launched a new practice note “How to use the CIC BIM Protocol with NEC4
”. This webinar will guide attendees through the practical steps of using BIM with NEC Contracts.
Ian Heaphy and Richard Patterson will discuss:
- What is Information Modelling
- NEC approach to Information Modelling in NEC3 and use of version 1 of the CIC Protocol
- NEC4 X10 Information Modelling
- NEC4 X10 and version 2 of the CIC Protocol
- Tips on the use of the X12 with the CIC Protocol
- Tips on the use of X10 without the CIC Protocol
