This page is part of our BIM and the CWMF section.
From January 2024 consultants engaged to design and oversee the construction of public works contracts with a value in excess of €100m will have Building Information Modelling (BIM) requirements included in their scope of service.
Over a period of 4 years these requirements will be extended to include the engagement of consultants and contractors down to projects with a value less than €1m. At that point all public works projects will have BIM requirements incorporated.
The BIM adoption strategy utilises the buying power of the public sector which represents at least 25% of construction activity to incorporate digital delivery requirements as part of the overall Government strategy to digitalise the construction sector by 2030.

From January 2024 the OGP, in conjunction with the Government Contracts Committee for Construction, will monitor the uptake of BIM across those public bodies who are required to use the CWMF. The timeline set out below is subject to review any changes will be based on feedback from this monitoring process.
