BIM standard raises the bar at WPL

First slide

WPL (UK) is proud to be one of the first Architectural Facade companies to be accredited with the prestigious accolade for Building Information Modelling (BIM) to PAS 1192:2013 Level 2.

Independently verified by Ocean, our BIM Co-ordinator Michael Lovell went through several days of intense scrutiny about WPL’s processes and procedures. This was the final stage in the build-up to being fully assessed over several months. Mike commented that “Despite the assessor recognising the amount of effort that had gone into the preparation work and being presented with some of the best evidence ever seen, it was still a tense moment before being told we had passed.”

The requirements of BIM Level 2 were clearly proved to be full integrated into WPL’s business management systems and embedded across the company’s operations which work to ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001.

Through this independent certification to BIM Level 2 this will allow the company to provide faster responses to tender questions and manage digital information much more efficiently. It will also keep WPL one step ahead of the current requirements expected of everyone following the Government’s BIM mandate.

The management team at WPL (UK) have always been were keen to become accredited as the company works alongside more and more high profile contractors, architects and clients. Geoff Andrews, Design Manager said “As we strive to differentiate ourselves from competitors BIM Level 2 certification gives specifiers much more confidence in using our design, manufacturing and installation services.”

In striving to continually improve members of the WPL team regular attend Supply Chain events like those organised by the North West BIM Region Group and BIM4SMEs where they can share experiences of best practice and keep up to speed with BIM.
