David Clarke, Aidan O’Connell, Leo Tinnelly (BSI), Nick Heffernan and Tim Murnane

PUNCH Consulting Engineers have achieved verification certification from British Standards Institution (BSI) for Building Information Modelling (BIM) Level 2 Tier 1. This is one of the highest construction industry levels of BIM certification that can be achieved. PUNCH BSI BIM Level 2 Tier 1 certification is another example of PUNCH continuing to be a leading International multidisciplinary consulting engineering practice.

This certification was achieved through an external review by BSI of PUNCH BIM management process capabilities and documentation. Achieving certification as a Tier 1 consultant indicates PUNCH project management, design management, construction processes and documentation procedures comply with PAS 1192-2:2016, BS 1192:2007 and BS 1192-4:2014 standards. These standards are designed to drive cost savings and efficiencies through waste reduction and program by improving collaboration. Achieving this certification now means PUNCH can act as a common single and coordinated source of BIM project information throughout the project lifecycle. As a Tier 1 consultant PUNCH Post and Pre-Building Execution Plans (BEP) and Employer Information requirements (EIR) documents will guide clients in maximising the benefits of BIM and ensure the client expectations for the project are realised.

PUNCH Consulting BIM journey began in 2007 on the €450 million Beacon South Quarter development in Sandyford, County Dublin. While BIM in Ireland at that time was at its infancy, it was clear to PUNCH it would impact on the way projects were delivered in the future. Since 2007 PUNCH has continued to use BIM on projects and implement BIM industry advancements to BIM level 1 and BIM Level 2.  Initially PUNCH was utilising BIM solely on projects. However, over the years the number of companies using BIM and the level of expertise has significantly increased. Also, more and more clients are becoming acutely aware of the benefits of BIM and are requesting it to be used on their project.

PUNCH company ethos from its inception is to embrace industry advancements such as BIM. Achieving BIM Level 2 Tier 1 certification consolidates PUNCH expertise in working in a BIM environment. This has been achieved through the competency of our staff and our documented compliant procedures for all processes in PAS 1192-2. It further demonstrates PUNCH commitment to invest in industry advancements to provide the highest quality and cost-effective solutions to our clients.
