Roughan & O’Donovan (ROD) is pleased to announce that, following a recent audit by BSI (British Standards Institution), our BIM (Building Information Modelling) systems and capabilities have been certified to the ISO 19650 standard.
ISO 19650 (parts 1 and 2) are an internationally agreed set of standards that define the business processes for the effective management and collaborative production of information when using BIM. It enables teams from around the world to increase predictability around cost and time, through a common approach to the management of information.
ISO 19650 supersedes BS 1192 (principles) and PAS 1192-2 (capital/delivery phase).
Andy Butterfield, managing director, Global Built Environment at BSI, said:
‘Huge congratulations to Roughan & O’Donovan for being one of the first organisations globally to achieve BSI BIM verification to reflect ISO 19650 parts 1 and 2. This demonstrates their commitment to best practice when using BIM and will provide numerous benefits, including giving clients confidence that they are working with partners at the highest possible standard.’
Aonghus O’Keeffe, associate at ROD, said:
‘As a company that plans, designs and manages projects, both nationally and internationally, achieving certification to ISO 19650 is important. Not only is it key to improving project value during the design, construction and operation processes, but it also provides reassurance to our international clients and project partners that we can manage information effectively throughout the full life-cycle of a project.’
