Posted on by in News

William Hare Group has announced that it is one of the first steelwork contractors to be certified to BIM Level 2, with Ocean Certification, ahead of the UK Government’s 2016 deadline for BIM implementation.

The company has successfully completed the external audit to confirm that it has satisfied the requirements of BIM Level 2 and PAS 1192-2:2013.

Commenting on the certification, William Hare Group’s CEO, David Hodgkiss OBE said: “As a business we have been utilising BIM for a number of years, so we are pleased to have been officially certified to Level 2.

“We are committed to being a world leader in the use of BIM and using this approach to the maximum possible extent to ensure optimum project delivery for our clients.”

The auditor, David Robinson from Ocean Certification commented: “The staff interviewed showed an understanding of BIM in practice – it was clear that there was strong commitment to the principles of digital design and compliance with client information requirements.”

William Hare says it is now able to use BIM to economically deliver schemes using lean fabrication and erection processes to achieve lead times and high quality standards.
