How certification was achieved
To achieve verification certification, Jones Engineering completed the BIM Level 2 audit process working closely with BSI. The audit examined in detail the company’s BIM processes, procedures and management systems to verify compliance with PAS 1192-2:2013, BS 1192:2007 and BS 1192-4:2014. The award of the certification coincides with the recent publication of Roadmap to Digital Transition for Ireland’s Construction Industry developed by the National BIM Council of Ireland, which defines a four-year adoption of digital technologies across the Public Sector.
Having been early adopters of BIM, Jones Engineering has sought to remain at the forefront of the construction industry, developing BIM practices from what was initially considered an optional “construction aid” to become the framework of their business model incorporated across all project departments within the group.
A significant step forward for Jones Engineering
John O’Brien, BIM Manager, Jones Engineering Group said, “It’s a significant step forward for Jones Engineering and demonstrates our commitment and investment in both BIM and digital engineering. We are delighted to have our BIM capability formally recognised by the BSI, and we are looking forward to sharing this knowledge with our clients and across our supply chain.”
Gary Fenton, Global Product Certification Director, BSI said “We’re delighted to have supported Jones Engineering with achieving this verification certification which demonstrates their commitment to being compliant with the requirements of PAS 1192-2 covering Design and Construction for Level 2 BIM. There are huge benefits to be made from integrating BIM into the supply chain, and BSI is dedicated to supporting organizations with this, regardless of where they are on their BIM journey.”
Belinda Dillon, BIM Information Manager, Jones Engineering Group said: “The certification is testament to the knowledge of staff and their capability of working within a 3D BIM level 2 environment. Jones Engineering clients and our supply partners can be confident that our day to day BIM workflows have been independently assessed and verified.”
