Challenge

Varming Consulting Engineers Ltd. identified that achieving ISO 19650-2:2018 certification was an opportunity to further demonstrate the quality of their outputs and verify that they work against the latest international standards. Varming were previously certificated to PAS 1192 BIM Standards and made the strategic decision to transition to ISO 19650-2:2018 Information Management Certification to ensure continuous best practice across all their offices within their organisation.

What was done

Varming Consulting Engineers Ltd. made the decision to pursue ISO 19650-2:2018 Certification with BRE, to confirm that their processes, procedures, documentation and quality assurance checks were aligned with the international standard.

Varming wanted to transition from PAS BIM standards, to which it was previously certificated, to the international ISO 19650-2:2018 standard, and align all processes, procedures and documentation with new nomenclature and revised workflows.

Varming chose to partner with BRE as a recognised world-leading independent organisation with one of the most highly regarded certification schemes in the construction sector. BRE’s desktop review quickly helped identify development areas ahead of the main audit.

The rigorous approach and in-depth inspection performed by BRE during the audit assessed that Varming’s processes, procedures and documentation were in accordance with ISO 19650-2:2018. The ISO 19650-2:2018 certification reinforces operational effectiveness and reduces risks to VCE’s clients by providing assurance through regular audits that they continue to work to the highest international standards, enhancing the processes and procedures that underpin Varming’s BIM delivery on projects.

Project outcome

Varming is proud of always working towards the best international practice and is committed to delivering a quality service.

EN ISO 9001:2015, I.S. EN ISO 14001:2015 and ISO 45001:2018 respectively.

BRE’s UKAS Accredited ISO 19650-2:2018 certification adds to the wealth of independent certification which Varming hold, supporting the operational effectiveness across all it’s offices and reduces risks to its clients. This adds value by demonstrating its capability and capacity when applying for tenders both in the public and private sectors. It also validates that Varming’s processes, procedures and documentation adhere to the requirements of ISO 19650-2:2018 across all their offices. Certification helps Varming as part of the supply chain demonstrate conformance to ISO 19650-2:2018, accelerating innovation and collaboration of clients and project teams.

Commenting on behalf of Varming, Trina Turner, Group BIM Manager/Information Manager said, ‘ISO 19650-2:2018 Information Management Certification assures our clients that Varming Consulting Engineers Ltd. works to the highest international standards. The fact that VCE is the first specialist building services consultancy to achieve this certification in Ireland sets us apart from our competitors’.
