Jacobs receives BRE Level 2 BIM certification


BRE Global has awarded Jacobs its Building Information Modelling (BIM) Level 2 Business Systems Certification for BIM projects delivered from Jacobs’ Leeds and Manchester offices.

The certification recognises that these offices now have the capability of delivering BIM projects at the Level 2 standard, primarily in infrastructure and transportation.

The certification formally validates Jacobs’ ability to meet even the most demanding public sector project requirements.

“As a multi-faceted organisation with a significant local and global reach, having recognised BIM capability will not only enable Jacobs to ensure forward-looking benefits for their clients, but will also help drive all-important international uptake,” said BRE Group’s director for BIM Paul Oakley.

“Jacobs is committed to widening BRE Level 2 BIM certification across our transportation capability both in the UK and globally,” said Jacobs vice president, transportation, Vip Gandhi. “We look forward to further incorporating BIM into the way we work and this certification sets the benchmark for our future BIM schemes.”

Jacobs is one of the world’s largest and most diverse providers of full-spectrum technical, professional and construction services for industrial, commercial and government organisations globally.

It delivers major transportation and infrastructure projects around the world, including UK projects such as Highways England’s Regional Investment Programme.
