Black & White Engineering are design consultants who focus on Mechanical, Electrical and Public Health Engineering and operate in the UK and UAE. They were recently granted certification for both both BIM Level 2 and ISO 9001.
Below is an an extract from the company’s news announcement by B&W QSE Manager, Phil Grant:
B&W are proud to announce this achievement which reaffirms our continued commitment to a long-term and structured BIM implementation strategy across the business, embracing industry recognised benchmarks.
As one of only a handful of other MEP Consultants in the UK to achieve certification through a recognised accreditation body, Level 2 certification strengthens the credibility of our BIM data management competencies which puts us in a strong position to successfully enhance bid submissions in support of our design team partners.
The UK government’s much publicised BIM Level 2 mandate took effect on the 4 April 2016. Achieving certification also acknowledges our ability to respond to the mandated requirement by demonstrating our internal management systems (QSE) are fully aligned to deliver the requirements within the standards of PAS1192-2:2013 and PAS 91:2013 section 4.2.
We are particularly proud of the effort that has gone into this achievement which has been accomplished in conjunction with a comprehensive overhaul of our legacy QSE system. The fundamental principles and objectives of BIM processes are synonymous with B&W’s ethos and our QSE system now fully integrates BIM into our core processes.
The independent certification scheme by UKAS accredited certification body Ocean Certification was perfectly aligned to our business needs, allowing our new QSE system to achieve UKAS accredited certification to ISO 9001 as part of the same process.
B&W are now looking to develop their integrated management system further to become certified to both ISO 14001 & OHSAS 18001 standards.
