A&B Engineering (Mechanical Services Division) Ltd has become the latest construction industry organisation to choose BIM Certification, provided by leading body Stroma Certification. The certification for BIM is provided in line with the PAS 1192-2:2013 standard (i.e. the current mandated construction standard for centrally procured public sector contracts).
A&B Engineering will now be able to offer their services to their employers, providing confidence to different parties (including construction clients) that they comply with the requirements of BIM Level 2.
A&B Engineering, based in Liverpool, provides their clients with design and installation services for mechanical, electrical and plumbing.
Based in the North West, they have a near 70-year track record of service provision to their clients. By achieving BIM Certification they are demonstrating a commitment to deliver their services in compliance with the BIM Level 2 related standards.
Stroma Certification has been developing certification schemes for the construction industry for more than a decade. Following the Government introduced mandate for centrally procured projects to be delivered in compliance with BIM Level 2, Stroma developed their PAS 1192-2 (Specification for information management for the cap/delivery phase of construction projects using building information modelling (BIM)) scheme. The scheme is suitable for designers, contractors and the wider supply chain and helps organisations to identify their role in the construction lifecycle in the context of BIM.
Stephen Burns, A&B Engineering (BIM Manager), said: "Building Information Modelling has now become the industry standard way of designing & running construction projects and A&B have been actively supporting this process since 2012. We are pleased to achieve BIM level 2 certification as it now allows us to further demonstrate our understanding and commitment to the process."
Mike Hart, A&B Engineering (Director), added: "The Certification we have achieved from Stroma is a reflection of the tremendous work being undertaken in our Design and BIM Departments. It is a reflection of the expertise and skills we have as a business and what we have developed and delivered on many projects in recent years. Having this Certification is a celebration for us all and well done to Steve and all the team for the commitment and enthusiasm that has been behind us achieving this accreditation."
Niraj Mistry, Senior BIM Assessor, Stroma Certification commented: "A&B Engineering (Mechanical Division) has demonstrated good capability to meet the BIM Level 2 requirements. As a Tier 2 site-based contractor, they are leading this segment of the market by demonstrating their commitment to delivering quality BIM."
