The latest version of the AEC (UK) BIM Protocols is now available for download from the Documents page on the AEC (UK) CAD & BIM Standards Site.
Version 2.0 of the AEC (UK) BIM Protocol is a unification of the guidance provided by the previous documents, bringing workflows together in a single generic document which can be applied to any BIM-enabled project.
The set of documents builds on the guidelines and frameworks defined by the UK standards documents, including BS1192:2007 and the forthcoming PAS1192-2:2012 alongside proven best practice procedures, providing a clear, concise path to implementation for BIM authoring software, such as Autodesk Revit and Bentley’s AECOsim Building Designer.
The AEC (UK) BIM Protocol v2.0 forms the “hub” of a complete software-based solution. Supplementary documents provide additional detail and enhancements required to implement these protocols using specific BIM authoring software:
