William Hare claims BIM first

William Hare Group is laying claim to being the first structural steelwork contractor to be certified to BIM level 2.

William Hare completed the external audit to confirm that it meets the requirements of BIM level 2 and PAS 1192-2:2013 on 15th December 2015.

Chief executive David Hodgkiss said: "As a business we have been utilising BIM [building information modelling] for a number of years, so we are pleased to have been officially certified to Level 2. We are committed to being a world leader in the use of BIM and using this approach to the maximum possible extent to ensure optimum project delivery for our clients.”

Auditor David Robinson from Ocean Certification said: “The staff interviewed showed an understanding of BIM in practice – it was clear that there was strong commitment to the principles of digital design and compliance with client information requirements”.

William Hare is big on certification. It says it was the first UK steelwork contractor to achieve CE marking for both factory and site operations, the first to achieve CEMARS certification, ESOS certification and the only steelwork contractor to hold BES6001 certification to the level of ‘very good’.
