ABSTRACT

Building information modelling (BIM) is the management of information through the whole life cycle of a built asset through three-dimensional visual expression, 4D time, 5D effect and multi-dimensional performance, in-kind control and precise control of the project to increase the contract manager’s control of the project. At present, China(mainland) has not been specifically BIM contract management regulations. (Mainland of China has different management regulations with Hongkong, in this paper the author only analysis situation of mainland.) With the rapid development of China’s market economy, the construction industry has become increasingly prominent in the national economy. In order to give full play to the role of market economy system reform in the allocation of market resources, China need to establish an effective legal system of contract management system.

Keywords: BIM, contract management system, construction project, contract standard regulations, technical operations, contract relationship


INTRODUCTION

Building information modelling (BIM) is the management of information through the whole life cycle of a built asset through three-dimensional visual expression, 4D time, 5D effect and multi-dimensional performance, in-kind control and precise control of the project to increase the contract manager’s control of the project. Construction activities including the initial bidding and maintenance are the series performance combination of construction contracts, its consistency requires a high degree of legal awareness, contract of entire construction project plays an important role in the project management. All rights relationships between the management of each party based on contract, especially the contract management of large-scale construction projects which directly determine the progress of the project.

  1. Problem definition

In order to solve problems of BIM contract management, the American Institute of Architects (AIA) and Consensus Docs. put forward their own BIM contract standard form respectively AIA Document E202TM-2008 Building Information Modeling Protocol Exhibit and Consensus DOCS301 BIM. The construction contract in China is based on the standard form by the Ministry of Housing and Urban-Rural Development and the State Administration for Industry and Commerce. At present, China(mainland) has not been specifically BIM contract management regulations. (Mainland of China has different management regulations with Hongkong, in this paper the author only analysis situation of mainland.)

With the rapid development of China’s market economy, the construction industry has become increasingly prominent in the national economy. In order to give full play to the role of market economy system reform in the allocation of market resources, China need to establish an effective legal system.

To summarize, this paper will research and analyze the following questions:

  • The advantages of BIM contract management system compared to the traditional contract management system
  • Comparing between published BIM contract standard firm with Chinese situation.
  • Try to choose a sample system model that is suitable for China’s contract management.
