Interserve, the international support services and construction group, is the first main contractor to be certified as BIM Level 2 compliant under BRE Global Business Systems Certification Scheme.
To receive BIM Level 2 certification, an assessment-based procedure is undertaken to measure BIM management systems and processes. Interserve is now permitted to use the BRE Global Badge of Compliance.
Commenting on the certification, Ian Renhard, Managing Director of Interserve Construction, says: “We are incredibly proud to be the first contractor to have achieved this certification. It is concrete evidence of Interserve’s commitment to BIM as a key vehicle for delivering the best value to our customers.”
Through on-going commitment to policies and procedures, Interserve is the first contractor to meet the Government’s 2016 mandate, which states that all projects are BIM Level 2 compliant.
Alex Jones, Interserve’s National BIM Manager, comments: “Despite a vigorous two-day site audit process, the BRE Global assessment team were both practical and helpful, and I would recommend their services to anyone wishing to test their compliance.
“We have definitely earned this certification and we are very proud, having implemented UK BIM standards across demanding public and private sector projects. This is another milestone for Interserve as we transition from analogue to digital in preparation for the 2025 construction strategy target.”
Ben Curtis, BRE Global BIM Scheme Manager, concludes: “Congratulations to Interserve on their certification – they have shown full commitment to BIM and offer a mature set of policies and procedures to their clients, performing confidently in a BIM Level 2 environment. We hope they inspire other contractors to take their lead and get their businesses ready for BIM, as the Government compliance target is now less than a year away.”

About BIM Level 2 Certification
The BRE BIM Level 2 Business Systems Certification scheme assesses a business, based at a single location relating to the BIM policy and capability as defined within PAS 1192-2:2013 and PAS 91, as well as assessing the ability of the business to meet the requirements of an employer to carry out a BIM capability assessment.
