BRE to partner with DCT for BIM training and certification rollout across the Republic of Ireland

Note: This press release is over six months old and the details may have been superseded.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

BRE Group is a leading authority on Building Information Modelling (BIM), having been one of the pioneering organisations behind the development of BIM since the 1990s.

From its recently-opened Dublin office, BRE is extending its BIM training and certification services to the Irish Republic, working in partnership with DCT, an established BIM consultancy.

Through BRE Group’s training arm, the BRE Academy, BRE offers comprehensive training in the BIM process, leading to BRE Academy qualifications for BIM practitioners and a pathway to BIM certification for individuals. In addition, BRE delivers full BIM certification to PAS 1192-2:2013 standards, allowing companies who are certified under the scheme to demonstrate their BIM credentials and to reduce the level of form-filling at the PQQ stage of projects.

International BIM expert, BRE’s Paul Oakley said: “as Ireland moves to implement BIM across all major construction projects, following the strategy set out in the national BIM roadmap, we are looking forward to our well-respected BIM training and certification services being used in Ireland and extending our existing uptake across the rest of the UK and beyond.”
