Using BIM in FIDIC contracts

Aspects of implementing BIM in construction projects using FIDIC Conditions of Contract for Construction, Second Edition 2017

Nowadays, FIDIC Conditions Contract has remained the most popular form of contract worldwide in the construction industry and the top first choice when it comes to use a standard form of contract. It has been used in any jurisdiction, mostly within underdeveloped countries and emerging economies, being preferred by the banks and international financial institutions as a standard form for carrying out the construction projects financed in these countries, due to the predictability that it gives.

During the last years, Building Information Modelling (BIM), has had a fast-growing trend of adoption in the construction industry. Governments in developed countries mandated BIM and financed the development of industry-wide standards, BIM becoming a catalyst for digital transformation of the construction sector and the related industries.

However, there is not too much information about BIM in the FIDIC related publications, and vice-versa, and BIM is neither being mentioned in the new versions of FIDIC books, except by the “Advisory Notes for Users of FIDIC Contracts is to Include Building Information Modelling Systems” included in the FIDIC 2017 Second Edition. The aim of this paper is to bring out some answers about the practical possibilities of using BIM in accordance with some of the sub-clauses of the FIDIC Contract Conditions for Construction from the Contractor’s perspective. Furthermore, it intends to present some similarities between these two powerful concepts that provide guidance for construction professionals and govern many construction projects.
