K&A is now able to use the BSI Kitemark for achieving BIM for design, construction and commissioning
Khatib & Alami (K&A) has been recognised for its international BIM standards after achieving globally recognized certification from the British Standards Institution (BSI).
After a company-wide assessment of the firm’s projects by the BSI, including client satisfaction and collaborative engagement with the delivery team, K&A is able to use the BSI Kitemark for achieving BIM for design, construction and commissioning in accordance with ISO 19650-1 and ISO 19650-2.
The ISO 19650 standards provide a structured process to support BIM implementation on projects. This creates a common approach which improves collaboration and understanding among design teams, while improving cost and time efficiency.
Sam Faekk, BIM manager at K&A, says: “Having a consistent set of internationally recognized standards adds enormous value for design teams, especially with large-scale projects which frequently involve multinational teams working from different office locations.
“K&A started its BIM certification journey in 2019, when we gained BSI BIM Level 2, and we’re delighted to have attained this next level across all of our design centers.
“It represents an important step within our wider digitalization strategy, which is ultimately aimed at driving continuous improvement in all aspects of our work for clients and end-users.”
