RPS has been awarded BIM Level 2 Business Systems Certification by BRE Global, recognising its ability to deliver projects in a BIM Level 2 environment for its clients.
BRE Global is a UKAS accredited certification body that assesses a business, its BIM policy and capability as defined within PAS 1192-2:2013 and PAS 91. It also assesses its ability to meet the requirements of an employer and carry out a BIM capability assessment. The scheme has been designed to enable BIM certified businesses demonstrate their compliance with the PAS91-2013 section 4.2 and avoid having to provide evidence of competence each time they tender.
The certification process involved an online application, followed by a desktop assessment and an onsite audit to confirm compliance.
BRE Global undertook an audit at the RPS Galway office in November 2015 and successful certification was confirmed earlier this month. Mark Costello, Director of BIM at RPS was presented with the certificate at BRE head office in Watford last week. “This is a significant achievement and recognition of progress made by RPS in delivering projects in a Level 2 BIM environment, as required by many of our clients and ahead of the UK Government mandate of April 2016” said Mark.
Mark was also presented with his individual certification for BIM Level 2 Certificated Practitioner. This certification scheme provides ongoing, independent, third party assessment of BIM practitioners and assures clients that they will receive a high quality service. Mark has successfully completed the Project Information Manager and Task Information Manager examinations and follow-up audit to show compliance.
