Khatib & Alami (K&A), a multidisciplinary design consultancy, said it has secured recognition for international BIM standards after achieving certification from the British Standards Institution (BSI).

After a company-wide assessment of the firms 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, said: "Having a consistent set of internationally recognised standards adds enormous value for design teams, especially with large-scale projects which frequently involve multinational teams working from different office locations."

"We began our BIM certification journey in 2019, when we gained BSI BIM Level 2, and were delighted to have attained this next level across all of our design centers," noted Faekk.

"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," he added.-TradeArabia News Service
