Symetri’s partner, LRQA, is granted UKAS accreditation for BIM standard - ISO 19650-2

LRQA has provided clients with BIM services for over 10 years, having launched the first BIM level 2 certification scheme on the market in 2012. Symetri has worked in partnership with LRQA in the delivery of the ISO 19650-2 Accreditation process since 2016, together supporting our clients mitigate risk, increase efficiency and give clients and stakeholders confidence that their organisation is following best practice throughout the lifecycle of a built asset from concept to construction, operation and finally decommissioning.

Inspection Services Area Operations Manager at LRQA, Paul Karim, said:
“We are delighted to be granted UKAS accreditation for ISO 19650-2 as it gives our clients and their stakeholders greater confidence in the rigour of their certification. Information modelling is very important within the construction sector to ensure better collaboration and efficiency, so this is a big development for the industry and our clients.”

LRQA is proud of its role in developing and enhancing BIM services for the industry, having been chosen to take part in the pilot assessment programme for ISO 19650-2:2018 certification in 2020. The main aim of the programme was for UKAS to confirm how applicable the relevant standards were to various organisations and identify any areas which needed further guidance and transparency.

Principal Consultant & BIM Sector Lead at Symetri, Daryn Fitz, said:
“This is significant news for the industry because many have been requesting UKAS accredited schemes since 2016. It has a pleasure to support this outcome working with LRQA.”
