Standards

This page comprises standards, protocols, templates and best practice for Building Information Modelling (BIM) that have been primarily developed for the UK market. The page also includes some international standards that are applicable to projects in the UK.

The core standards identified here are also available from: http://bim-level2.org. This page however sets out the detailed standards identified within each of these core standards.

Green text are links to the relevant documents.
