Consulting engineers BSD gain BRE BIM level 2 certification

This press release is over six months old and the details may have been superseded. Please contact the Press Office for the latest information.

M&E engineering firm BSD has become the first SME business to be assessed and certificated under BRE Global’s BIM level 2 Business Systems Certification Scheme.

With BIM level 2 becoming a requirement of all government building procurement programmes in 2016, being able to demonstrate that policies and procedures are in place to comply with PAS1192-2:2013 can deliver competitive advantage. It can also speed up the prequalification questionnaire process. BRE’s BIM level 2 certification scheme is the ideal route to confirm this compliance.

David White, Managing Director at BSD said  “We are incredibly proud to be the first SME to have achieved this certification. It is concrete evidence of BSD’s commitment to BIM as a key vehicle for delivering the best value to our clients.”

Speaking for BRE Global, Dan Rossiter said “BSD has seen BIM, and the process of getting certification, as an opportunity to demonstrate its skills and showcase its long-term engagement with BIM.  The steps they took to improve their processes as a result of the audit not only strengthened their compliance but showed their commitment to the certification process and BIM as a whole”

As well as speeding up the tendering process, certification can save businesses the time and costs involved in responding to ever-varying tender questions. For those issuing tenders, having a BRE BIM-certified business in the running removes the need to check replies or employ someone to do it for them.
