ISG has further demonstrated its commitment to maximising technology to drive operational efficiencies by securing a BIM Level 2 accreditation for its collaborative, dynamic delivery of projects using digital construction techniques.

The global construction services company was awarded the BSI Kitemark for its BIM Level 2 certification to PAS1192:2-2013 and BS1192:4. The accreditation refers specifically to project delivery, where graphical data, non-graphical data and documents, known collectively as the project information model (PIM), are accumulated from design and construction activities.

Mark Norton, ISG’s head of BIM, said: “In the last few years, we have seen a seismic shift in our clients’ understanding of BIM and the processes involved with using digital construction techniques.

“This BSI Kitemark shows our commitment to implementing the technology in all our design, build and fit-out contracts and recognises that we have the robust processes and protocols to manage and utilise data in the correct way.

“BIM is flexible enough to be used across multiple applications and enhances our construction and fit-out expertise to deliver better, smarter and more innovative buildings. Gaining the BIM Level 2 certification also means we can provide assurances to our supply chain that we are fully equipped to deliver a comprehensive range and value of public sector and private sector contracts with maximum efficiency.”

The use of BIM has grown exponentially in the UK construction sector and Level 2 accreditation became a recommended requirement for companies wishing to tender for centrally-procured UK government contracts, in April 2016. Since then, the industry has adopted the technology to provide better collaboration on projects and meet the demands of technology-driven buildings.

BIM Level 2 accreditation was issued to ISG by BSI following an assessment of process and project delivery which includes client satisfaction, collaborative engagement with the supply chain and a progressive training regime.
