BIM Level 2 Certification
Building Information Modelling, or BIM, has already made a huge impact in the way we build. Not only does it ensure a better building quality, efficiency and sustainability, but the adoption of BIM brings firms additional benefits such as lower costs, better resource management and delivering projects on time. Couple your commitment to adopt this methodology with the attainment of a company or personal BIM level 2 Certification and you'll gain recognition for meeting the highest UK construction standards.
It is not a surprise then that the UK government mandates for all centrally procured public projects to be 3D BIM compliant and include all digital documentation and asset information. The NBS National BIM Report 2017, shows that 62% of the Construction Industry is already leveraging BIM workflows, but there is also a large percentage that have yet to adopt or are unsure how.
Does this mean that all SMEs and private projects do not need to implement BIM? Not at all, though not currently enforced in the private sector, the benefits of adopting BIM outweigh the costs and can give your firm a competitive edge over other suppliers and be the difference between winning a bid or not.
Receiving a 3rd party BIM certification from an independent and universally recognised authority in the construction sector will demonstrate to your potential customers that your work continues to meet the national standards and that they can trust you to deliver an excellent build.
Why choose a BRE BIM Level 2 accreditation?
BRE has been at the centre of the research which has demonstrated the need for a standardised construction methodology and guided the development of the UK construction standards and BIM itself. Additionally, we’ve chosen to recommend a BRE accreditation due to the following reasons:
- A BRE Accreditation is a Certification, not a Verification.
- It is the only Certification house to have assessors who are the original authors of the government documentation.
- All assessors have a wealth of experience on their respective industries.
- Completely impartial assessment.
- Simple process with full feedback through all the different stages.
