Exchange Information Requirements (EIR) Template
The Construction Industry Council (CIC) of Hong Kong was set up with the main function of forging consensus on long-term strategic issues, conveying the industrys needs and aspirations to Government, as well as providing a communication channel for Government to solicit advice on all construction-related matters. The CIC developed itself as a Centre of Excellence for BIM, formulating strategies for market transformation and promoting cross-discipline collaboration and wider adoption of BIM. The CIC provides support to the industry in five aspects, promotion on BIM adoption, training, standards, guidelines and specifications, BIM personnel certification and BIM courses accreditation, and BIM-related researches using the CIC Research Fund.
The objective of this CIC BIM EIR Template is to provide BIM requirements for contractual deliverables to facilitate prompt adoption of BIM by the construction industry in Hong Kong. The target users are primarily small and medium enterprises (SME) Appointing Parties / Employers / Clients / Owners (hereafter referred to as Appointing Parties) or their agents in the private sector who plan to use BIM for their projects. The document will help them to prepare the project specific EIR.
The purpose of this document is to provide users with a standard Exchange Information Requirements (EIR) Template based on ISO 19650-1, which is required for service agreements or contracts following CIC BIM Standards and methodology depending on the type, scope and other Appointing Parties requirements for those projects. Users are advised to go through the Exchange Information Requirements Template and customise them for their specific project application. This Exchange Information Requirements Template should be used in conjunction with the CIC BIM Standards General which is available on CIC BIM portal website and also contained separately in this information collection.
