The first organisations worldwide to achieve the kitemark for PAS 1192-2 are Balfour Beatty, BAM Ireland, BAM Construct UK, Gammon Construction, Skanska UK and Voestapline Metsec.
The idea is that BSI certification demonstrates the BIM capabilities of the holder in delivering projects at the design and construction phase.
Andy Butterfield, BSI product certification director of built environment, said: “In a competitive marketplace, companies delivering BIM projects need to find a way to differentiate themselves, regardless of whether they are tendering for public or private sector projects. The BSI kitemark does just that, helping companies to demonstrate their commitment to best practice. BIM helps companies drive out waste and inefficiencies in their projects, reducing costs and environmental impact. Having the kitemark for BIM will mean that companies are able to build their business in the new era of digital technology and access global markets, giving clients reassurance that they are working with partners at the highest possible standard.”
The BSI kitemark for PAS 1192-2 Information management for the capital/delivery phase of construction projects is available to all companies that have already achieved verification stage and are certified to ISO 9001 Quality Management Systems.
