Interserve has been named as the first main contractor to be certified as Building Information Modelling (BIM) Level 2 compliant.
Research body BRE awarded the accolade under its Global Business Systems Certification Scheme, which measures BIM management systems and processes. Interserve is now permitted to use the BRE Global Badge of Compliance.
The government has mandated that all construction companies tendering for public work should achieve level 2 BIM by 2016.
“Despite a vigorous two-day site audit process, the BRE Global assessment team were both practical and helpful, and I would recommend their services to anyone wishing to test their compliance,” said Interserve national BIM manager Alex Jones.
“We have definitely earned this certification and we are very proud, having implemented UK BIM standards across demanding public and private sector projects. This is another milestone for Interserve as we transition from analogue to digital in preparation for the 2025 construction strategy target.”
BRE Global BIM scheme manager Ben Curtis added: “We hope [Interserve] inspires other contractors to take their lead and get their businesses ready for BIM, as the government compliance target is now less than a year away.”
