The CIMIC Group of companies, which includes  CPB Contractors, Leighton Asia and Pacific Partnerships, are the first Australian companies to achieve Kitemark certification for excellence in Building Information Modelling (BIM) from the international standards body, the British Standards Institution (BSI).

Internationally, BSI is the governing body that creates digital engineering and BIM standards in design.

BSI’s assessment and certification has recognised and endorsed all CIMIC Group companies for digital engineering compliance, to the specific standards PAS 1192-2, BS 1192-2 and BS 1192-4 with BSI Kitemark certification, being the highest certification of excellence applicable to those standards.

According to CIMIC Group CEO Michael Wright, “The BSI certification is an exciting recognition of our companies’ leading digital engineering capability that takes a fully integrated approach to Information Management, BIM, Quality Assurance and Asset Management across the lifecycle of a project.”

“Digital engineering, such as BIM, is a critical capability that improves value for clients and end users. It creates greater certainty during project delivery and greater efficiency during the operation and maintenance of the ultimate assets.”

“This approach is already advancing the development of smart, sustainable cities and industries, improving environmental, social, cultural and economic outcomes,” says Wright.
