BIM Standards

The BIM Maturity Wedge shows what is expected of your project team depending on what level of BIM you’re working at. By moving through the higher levels of BIM, adopting common standards, you and your team can work together more effectively and efficiently. Unless a project is still using BS 1192 series standards, it is no longer used and has been superseded by ISO 19650.
These are the suite of documents for Level 2.

Overview of the Standards

Provides information for those familiar with BS 1192:2007+A2:2016 and PAS 1192-2:2013 during the transition to BS EN ISO 19650-1 and BS EN ISO 19650-2. Covers useful terms and definitions, the role, structure and status, BIM level 2 and information management maturity, mapping, language used in ISO 19650 and how it relates in the UK.
In essence, both an Information Protocol and its processor, a BIM Protocol, is a schedule to the contract which sets out the parties’ rights, roles and duties in compliance with the standards.

The Information Protocol is intended for use at all levels of the supply chain and refers to two main parties: the appointee and the appointor. The appointee is the party appointed by the appointor under the appointment and the appointor is the party appointing the appointee. These flexible terms enable the protocol to work alongside any contract or subcontract at any level. The extent to which the processes in the Information Protocol are applicable at the relevant tier of the supply should be considered before it is incorporated into an appointment.
