Caledonian, one of the UK’s leading offsite and modular building specialists, has successfully achieved company-wide Level 2 BIM Capability verification from BSI.
The assessment was carried out by BSI in December, confirming that Caledonian has achieved verification to PAS 1192-2: 2013. This standard is now a requirement on all new public sector contracts.
Achieving a successful assessment from BSI further demonstrates Caledonian’s commitment to embracing technology by securing a BIM level 2 accreditation for its collaborative, dynamic delivery of projects as a tier 1 designer, manufacturer and contractor using digital construction techniques.
BSI’s recommendation of Caledonian to PAS 1192-2:2013 confirms that the company is adopting a consistent and best practice approach to BIM. It forms part of Caledonian’s commitment to BIM standards, with the aim of getting the business certified to BIM level 2.
PAS 1192-2 – Information management for the capital/delivery phase of construction projects provides clear guidance about best practice implementation of BIM to organisations and individuals responsible for the procurement, design, construction, delivery, operation and maintenance of buildings.
Paul Lang, Chief Executive Officer of Caledonian Modular, said: “We are actively embracing technology where it improves the way that we work and the service we provide to our customers. We are delighted to achieve company-wide Level 2 BIM Capability verification.”
He added: “We see BIM as a strategic vehicle that will help us deliver best value to our customers. The assessment by BSI means that our operations, training and procedures all comply with recognised BIM standards and that we are on track to deliver comfortably in a BIM Level 2 environment.”
Brian Goldsmith at BSI said: “Gaining this assessment will further enhance Caledonian’s reputation for continuous improvement in their operational processes. The fact that Caledonian has gained verification will be a huge benefit to all its customers especially those in the public sector.”
