The Building Information Council (Bouw Informatie Raad, or BIR) promotes widespread application of BIM in the Dutch construction and infrastructure industry. BIR is a unique partnership between various stakeholders in the construction industry, where the members represent both their construction industry segment and their own company. They make practical agreements that are in the interests of the entire industry and ensure these are implemented within their own segment. The partnership focuses on implementing BIM to strengthen the quality, continuity and competitive position of the Dutch construction and infrastructure industry. The resources cotained on the website help to accelerate the development and adoption of BIM within the Netherlands.
This second part leaflet looking at the legal aspect of BIM forms a checklist for projects. This checklist (how to work together with/in a BIM) shows topics about which agreements can be made in the context of BIM. The topics in this checklist are derived from BIM protocols used in the market, combined with topics that have emerged from practice (in particular Pioneering’s BIM protocol 2.0). For a project where BIM (at least from BIM level 2) will be used in whatever project phase it is advisable to go through the checklist below in a start-up meeting about the BIM deliverables to be made to date.
