The William Hare Group has been certified to BIM level 2, ahead of the UK Government’s 2016 deadline for BIM implementation.
David Hodgkiss OBE; WHG’s C.E.O. said; “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 certification comes in a long line of industry firsts for WHG, who were the first Steelwork Contractor to achieve CE Marking for both factory and site operations in the UK, the first to achieve CEMARS certification, ESOS certification and the only Steelwork Contractor to currently hold the BES6001 certification to the level of ‘Very Good’. The Group’s UAE fabrication facility is also believed to be the first to achieve CE Marking in the region.
David Lowery, Business Development Manager at Ocean Certification, commented: “William Hare is the first manufacturing organisation that has gained certification with us, so from our point of view they are definitely ahead of the game.”
The auditor, David Robinson from Ocean Certification Limited, has commented that “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”.
Using BIM, WHG are able to economically deliver schemes using lean fabrication and erection processes to achieve shorter lead times and the highest quality standards. As a Group we are committed to the use of BIM throughout all aspects of business operations and the supply chain.
