Issue 29
August 2019

We have made updates dealing with substantive contract law, notices of making good defects and the new BS EN ISO 19650 series, which introduces the concept of 'Building information modelling (BIM) according to the ISO 19650 series'. There is no legal definition of what this is, but according to the transition guidance to the 19650 series (PD 19650-0:2019), BIM according to the ISO 19650 series covers what has been referred to in in the UK as BIM level 2, plus some aspects of what has been referred to as BIM Level 1 and BIM Level 3. We will continue to monitor this important area and issue updates accordingly.
