Published in 2008, the Building Information Modeling Protocol Exhibit by the American Institute of Architects was developed in order to establish guidelines on the use of BIM throughout a project. This is important in that it has addressed several outstanding questions such as, the responsibilities for each element of the model, the authorized uses for the model, the extent to which users can rely on the model, the management of the model, and who takes ownership of the model. After developing a model for a dormitory building that belongs to the Polytechnic Institute of New York University, several examples can be shown that help support the compliance of the Building Information Protocol Exhibit.

The responsibility of each individual element of a Building Information Model has been addressed in General Provision 1.1 of the Protocol Exhibit, which states that specific responsibilities are assigned according to the development of each model element “at each project phase.” The model element, defined as an aspect of the BIM model which “represents a system or component within the building,” is created by an individual author who assumed the responsibility of that element. Within a project, there are various different phases that range from initial conceptual phase to a start up and turn over phase. These different phases within construction have been defined within the Protocol Exhibit as “Levels of Development.” For example, Level of Development 1 is equivalent to a
