The Dublin and Cork RPS offices have been awarded BIM Level 2 Business Systems Certification by BRE Global today, following a successful audit process. We are now certified across all regions, recognising our ability to deliver projects in a BIM Level 2 environment for our clients.

BRE Global is a UKAS accredited certification body that assesses a business, its BIM policy and capability as defined within PAS 1192-2:2013 and PAS 91. It also assesses its ability to meet the requirements of an employer and carry out a BIM capability assessment. The scheme has been designed to enable BIM certified businesses demonstrate their compliance with the PAS91-2013 section 4.2 and avoid having to provide evidence of competence each time they tender.
The certification process involved an online application, followed by a desktop assessment and onsite audits over two days in April to confirm compliance.
This certification was awarded to our Galway office back in November 2015, and the latest certifications recognise huge progress for RPS in achieving the standard nationally.
“It is a great achievement for RPS to have extended this accreditation across all Irish offices. Staff in Dublin and Cork completed our RPS / GMIT multi-award winning Higher Diploma in Engineering in BIM last autumn and have now demonstrated to BRE Global that we have the systems and expertise across our Irish offices to design major building and infrastructure projects in Level 2 BIM for our wide range of clients.” said Mark Costello, RPS Director of BIM.
