The first firms worldwide to achieve the Kitemark for PAS 1192-2 are Balfour Beatty, BAM Ireland, BAM Construct UK, Gammon Construction, Skanska UK and voestapline Metsec.
Mark Taylor, digital construction manager at BAM Construct UK, said: “BIM is a major driver for the digitisation of the construction industry, influencing its direction both in the UK and abroad.
“We were pleased to work with BSI and our peers to develop the certification, providing a clear assessment pathway to achieve the Kitemark.
“This will reassure clients and partners that we are working efficiently to the highest possible standards and that BIM processes are embedded within our systems.’’
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.
The BIM Kitemark is robust recognition of a firm’s delivery of BIM projects, certifying businesses for their diligence in design and construction, supply chain management and delivery of customer service excellence.
As with other Kitemarks, organisations holding the Kitemark will be routinely assessed, providing clients with complete confidence in their delivery to industry standards.
Tom Loader, head of digital transformation at Balfour Beatty, said: “Digital Integrity is an important part of delivering social and economic infrastructure as it reassures our customers that we are delivering the highest quality of information.
“This Kitemark demonstrates our on-going commitment to digital transformation and our ability to lead in the industrialisation of information management in infrastructure.”
