Plowman Craven first UK survey company to gain new BIM Kitemark

4 August 2019

Plowman Craven, the survey company and BIM consultancy, has achieved the new BSI kitemark for BIM to reflect BS EN ISO 19650, which includes both Part 1 (Concept and principles) and Part 2 (Delivery phase of assets).

The international standards cover the organisation and digitisation of information about buildings and civil engineering works, including building information modelling. The kitemark also includes BS 1192-4, which ensures the fulfilment of the employer’s information exchange requirements using COBie as part of the collaborative production of information standard.

As well as delivering survey information models, Plowman Craven is now certified as a Lead Appointed Party to perform the role of the employer’s BIM representative, information manager and BIM coordinator.

Commenting on the Kitemark certification, Plowman Craven director, David Norris, said: “Achieving certification against BS EN ISO 19650 represents a significant milestone on Plowman Craven’s BIM journey. This certification underlines our continued commitment to better outcomes for our clients and projects.”

Andy Butterfield, managing director, global built environment at BSI, said: “Huge congratulations to Plowman Craven for being among the first group of organisations – and the first dedicated survey company and BIM consultancy in the UK – to achieve BSI kitemark certification to reflect ISO 19650 parts 1 and 2.”
