UK BIM Framework
The UK BIM Framework sets out the overarching approach to implementing BIM in the UK. It was developed jointly by the UK BIM Alliance, BSI and the Centre for Digital Built Britain to implement international BIM standards within a UK context.
The UK BIM Framework includes:
- The published standards called upon to implement BIM in the UK.
- The UK BIM Guidance Framework.
- Useful links to other resources.
Formally launched in October 2019, it specifically addresses integration of the BS EN ISO 19650 series into UK working practices. However, it has also incorporated existing British standards, publicly available specifications (PASs), transition guidance, and ancillary information such as Government Soft Landings.
As new standards are published, and the corresponding PASs are superseded, the UK BIM Framework is updated, often with the addition of regularly updated UK-specific guidance notes on implementing the latest standards. For example, PAS 1192-2 was withdrawn following the publication of ISO 19650 Part 2 in January 2019; UK-specific guidance on Part 2: Processes for Project Delivery has since been updated quarterly to expand and improve its content.
