BSI Kitemark Accreditation For BIM Level 2

VINCI PLC have achieved the BSI Kitemark Accreditation for BIM Level 2 PAS 1192 PART 2. The BSI Kitemark is the most prestigious accreditation in the industry and is currently only held by a small number of contractors in the industry.

VINCI PLC have gained this accreditation through a rigorous two-week audit process, with evidence given from our internal procedures and site based evidence. However, a tremendous amount of effort has gone into reaching the accreditation process.

Over the last three years, company procedures have been changing and we have been successful in implementing new digital processes into a number of projects. Change has been led by the digital engineering department beginning in Taylor Woodrow, the civil engineering division of VINCI Construction UK, then expanding into the Building and Facilities divisions. This culture change and shift in attitude towards digital engineering and BIM processes and technologies has been achieved through training and promotion of BIM tools. Introducing resource on every new Taylor Woodrow project and within Building division regions, has demonstrated an ongoing commitment to achieving the accreditation.

We are at the forefront of digital transformation in construction in the UK. VINCI Construction UK is one of the key digital engineering players in the industry. We are working hand in hand with the I3P board, Innovate UK, CITB, and key consultants and construction partners to move the UK industry forward to effectively achieve a BIM level 3.

The work doesnt end there, our ambition is to consolidate BIM level 2 into all aspects of the way we work and consistently utilise our BIM level 2 through VINCI PLC. We are also working towards BIM level 3, which is currently being defined by the government working groups.

Achieving the BSI Accreditation is the best acknowledgement of the hard work of the team over the last three years. When you compare our BIM capability from then to now it is clear to see just how far we have come thanks to the investment of the company the dedication of all our digital engineers Millan Martin, Taylor Woodrow Engineering Director.
