ISO 19650 Accreditation (Formally BIM Level 2 Accreditation and Certification)

Is your organisation looking to become BIM ready, BIM compliant or BIM Accredited?

Efficiently plan, design, construct and manage buildings and infrastructure

The UK Government now requires all public construction projects to be performed by ‘BIM Capable’ organisations. The 2012 mandate has brought about an increased awareness and an appreciation of the benefits associated with its adoption. With many organisations already on their road to ISO 19650 (formally BIM Level 2) compliancy, certification provides a way of underlining that investment and driving business improvement via third party assessments.

Symetri are working in partnership with LRQA (previously Lloyd's Register) in the delivery of the ISO 19650-2 Accreditation process (BIM Level 2 Certification).
