NG Bailey is the first Tier 2 specialist contractor to achieve the BSI Kitemark for BIM Design and Construction

1st December 2017

We are pleased to be the first Tier 2 specialist building services design and engineering contractor to achieve the BSI Kitemark for BIM Design and Construction.

This BSI Kitemark is achieved by companies who not only demonstrate they have BIM compliant systems and processes in place and employ trained and skilled engineers, but those who have actual experience of delivering each of the required assessment criteria on their projects.

A significant amount of work was undertaken by our central BIM development team, our Business process team and BIM managers from across the business in preparation for the three day audit. Their hard work was a success and we are pleased to say that no non-conformities were raised during this assessment.

Achieving this BSI Kitemark should significantly reduce the number of BIM competency assessments and pre-qualification questionnaires we are required to complete for many of our projects.

NG Bailey plays an active role in the development of industry standards and guidance and will continue to drive forward and improve the industry’s growth in the specialisms of BIM and digital construction.

On behalf of the company, Steve Campbell, Technical Director, collected the BSI Kitemark certificate at an awards ceremony held at the BSI headquarters in Milton Keynes.

Steve Campbell said: “The Kitemark is the most difficult route to certification, requiring us to demonstrate and evidence how we actually deliver against each of the BSI’s assessment criteria on current and past projects. The BSI Kitemark is a fantastic achievement confirming NG Bailey as an industry leader in BIM and is the icing on the cake for us, following the three BIM industry awards won this year. It is testimony to all the hard work undertaken by the BIM managers and their teams across the business.”

Gary Pattison, BSI Certification Technical Expert, stated: “NG Bailey has a very pragmatic approach in implementing BIM processes, ensuring that this enhances the delivery that they provide. They are also very innovative and creative in the way in which they carry out digital design and construction, using the process defined in PAS 1192-2 as a framework, which is built to create further improvements in efficiency and delivery on a project.”
