Building Information Modelling (BIM) is crucial for the delivery of our projects. Thanks to the combined efforts of our National Product Team and a real one-team approach from our regional digital leads, we have achieved ISO 19650 standard for BIM.
Our research shows that working under ISO BIM standards has typically saved up to 22% on construction costs for customers to date. It’s therefore brilliant to hear that we have achieved the ISO 19650 standard at Willmott Dixon, which is a new, international standard for managing building information.
National Quality Assurance Manager, Christine Murray, worked with the digital team across Willmott Dixon’s construction and interior businesses through 3 days of audit scrutiny, after which we were wholeheartedly recommended for award of the standard and associated Kite Mark. This marks another great milestone in our journey towards a digitally-enabled, futureproof business that is leading the way for our customers, partners and industry.
ISO 19650 takes our predecessor, PAS 1192-2:2013 with BRE, and builds on it by adding detail and focus on holistic delivery and building information security. It applies to the whole life cycle of a building including strategic planning, initial design, engineering, development, documentation and construction as well as day-to-day operation, maintenance, refurbishment, repair and end of life. This life cycle focused approach will actively enhance collaborative working, providing greater opportunities to add value, and better outcomes for our customers.
Achieving this standard is an important quality mark for our work winning capabilities, and will help our positioning as we bid for future projects.
