We are delighted to announce that we have achieved Building Information Modelling (BIM) Verification covering Design and Construction for BIM Level 2 from BSI (British Standards Institution).
Building Information Modelling (BIM) is a collaborative way of working underpinned by digital technologies. These technologies allow for more efficient methods of designing, delivering and maintaining physically built assets throughout their entire lifestyle.
To achieve verification certification, we completed the audit process, which examined in detail our BIM processes, procedures and management systems, to verify compliance with BIM Level 2 in accordance with PAS 1192-2:2013, BS 1192:2007 and BS 1192-4:2014.
Andy Butterfield, Product Certification Director of Built Environment at BSI, said: “We’re delighted to have supported Dowds with achieving this verification certification which demonstrates their commitment to being compliant with the requirements of PAS 1192-2 covering Design and Construction for Level 2 BIM. There are huge benefits to be made from integrating BIM into the supply chain, and BSI is dedicated to supporting organisations with this, regardless of where they are on their BIM journey.”
Martin Magee, Dowds Group BIM Manager said: “Having been at the forefront of BIM in the M&E sector for a number of years, delivering a number of BIM Level 2 projects, achieving BSI BIM Level 2 for Design and Construction Verification, now demonstrates that our procedures and workflows are aligned to industry standards.
Martin Magee expands “The Verification is a significant step forward for Dowds Group, and is testament to the hard work, knowledge and skill set of our BIM team, and proves that we have the capability and expertise to deliver projects to the highest possible standards.”
