Wienerberger, the leading supplier of wall, roof and paving products, has been awarded a Kitemark from the British Standards Institution (BSI) for its BIM (Building Information Modelling) objects as part of the company’s ongoing digital transformation. The BIM Objects Kitemark is the benchmark in best practice for the creation of digital products used in BIM models.
To achieve this certification, a complete audit of Wienerberger’s BIM Objects by BSI took place to ensure that they are a true likeness of its physical products. Having received the kitemark, Wienerberger’s customers can have complete confidence during the design, construction and asset management phases of a project that what they see onscreen will translate seamlessly into a physical product.
Speaking on the award, Manuela Fazzan, Technical & Design Manager at Wienerberger, said: “We’re delighted to receive the Kitemark accreditation for our BIM Objects. BIM is an integral part of our business so to receive this recognition shows our hard work and dedication is paying off. This is also great news for our customers too as it means they can have even more confidence in our processes and approach to information sharing and collaboration throughout the project.”
The Kitemark accreditation comes as part of Wienerberger’s efforts to transition many of its tools and processes online as part of a broader ‘customer first’ digital transformation. The project aims to create operational efficiencies and ultimately provide a better experience for customers using their products and services.
