Seen as a game-changer for the construction industry, BIM is a collaborative way of working that uses digital technologies to enable more efficient methods of design and construction, ultimately driving out waste and inefficiency.
Andy Butterfield, Product Certification Director of Built Environment at BSI, 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 helps companies to demonstrate their commitment to best practice. Organisations holding the Kitemark will be routinely assessed, with a view to providing clients with complete confidence in their delivery to industry standards.
The BIM Kitemark builds on the verification scheme (PAS 1192-2) and involves sampling of completed projects, assessment of customer satisfaction through ISO 10004 Customer Satisfaction Guidelines for monitoring and measuring and uses additional assessment parameters through BS 11000 Collaborative Business Relationships. Like the verification scheme, the BSI Kitemark for PAS 1192-2 is an important component of BIM Level 2 and sets out the requirements for the design and construction phase.
The BSI Kitemark is one of the most recognisable trust marks and demonstrates that each Kitemark approved product or service has gone above and beyond the normal requirements to achieve the highest standards.
