BRE and Graitec partnership set to drive BIM uptake
A partnership between BRE and innovation-focused software solution provider Graitec is now providing companies with a smooth, end-to-end process for adopting BIM Level 2 Business Systems Certification. By the two organisations joining forces, companies can benefit from a unified, all-inclusive service that supports them on their BIM journey from gap analysis with a pre assessment service through to advisory, consultancy, software training and support, right through to BIM certification.
"This focused, joined-up approach will make it far more efficient for companies to prepare for BIM Level 2 certification", explained Paul Oakley, BIM Director at BRE. "It will also mean that Graitec clients can benefit from the BIM Level 2 process knowledge and training services provided by the BRE, but also have the software, consultancy and support services that we cannot offer. This will ensure that the advantages and opportunities that BIM certification delivers can be taken up faster and by a larger audience."
Steve Houlder, Graitec COO, added: “Our partnership with BRE will allow us to give companies a complete solution to BIM adoption. We are dedicated to help our customers excel and get ahead of their competition and this partnership gives us an additional approach to doing so.”

BRE Global BIM Level 2 Business Systems Certification scheme assesses a business, based at a single or multiple locations, in relation to the BIM policy and capability defined in PAS 1192-2:2013 and PAS 91. It also assesses the ability of the business to meet the requirements of an employer to carry out a BIM capability assessment. The scheme has been designed to enable certificated businesses to demonstrate compliance with PAS91-2013 section 4.2, so that they will not have to provide evidence of competence each time they undertake a tender. http://www.bregroup.com
