This legal guidance document produced by the BCA committee aims to address some of the legal challenges around BIM and its procurement on projects. The guide runs through the main challenges providing advice and clarity which can be adopted onto live projects. This document is for use in construction projects where BIM is used and shall be called the BIM Particular Conditions. All parties in such projects may incorporate the BIM Particular Conditions into their respective agreements or contracts for services, supply and/or construction for the project. The BIM Particular Conditions can be used for all methods of procurement. However, this document does not cover all issues in the use of BIM; especially those that may be specific to any particular user. The BIM steering committee therefore encourages users to review and adapt the BIM Particular Conditions for specific use. Users should obtain appropriate professional/legal advice before making any changes to the BIM Particular Conditions.
