The regulations for planning and construction supervision services, together with the basic
services, represent a reflection of the constantly changing professional practice. Since the last
edition of the LM.VM in 2014, some areas of work have developed particularly intensively, such as
Building Information Modelling, ESG, the Taxonomy Directive and sustainability documentation, as
well as specialist fire protection planning. In order to compile the different points of view of clients,
planners, construction supervisors and contractors into an “operational programme”, more than
100 participants contributed their individual suggestions for further development in more than 50
video conferences between the end of 2022 and the summer of 2023, which were coordinated by
the author and incorporated into the second edition.
These proposals become effective exclusively through the contracts that the contractual partners
conclude in writing on the basis of this LM.VM 2023, if necessary.
