Asite has announced that the Asite Common Data Environment (CDE) is one of the first organisations globally to achieve the BSI Kitemark for BIM software by BSI (British Standard Institution), the business improvement company.
Asite has positioned itself as a key player in the industry and the benchmark in best practice, notably providing extensive experience consulting on the implementation of construction projects supporting compliance with the ISO 19650 suite of standards and boasting a fully-compliant CDE.
Rob Clifton, Asite Chief of Staff said: “We are delighted with this achievement and the work that our team has put into building such a resilient and innovative platform. We have always been proud of the services and products that we provide to clients, so to have this independently verified and certified by BSI as being best practice in the industry is a great achievement.
Developing our software to enable compliant delivery of BIM processes against the ISO 19650 framework is just one milestone; Asite will continue to lead the way in engineering and construction technology and help the world build better.”
Andy Butterfield, Managing Director of Built Environment at BSI said: “As the demand for digital transformation in architecture, construction and asset management continues to grow, and the number of potential software support tools escalates, it is becoming increasingly difficult for organizations to identify appropriate software to support their needs.
Asite has become one of the first organizations globally to achieve this mark of trust and I would like to congratulate them all for their commitment to encouraging a collaborative approach across the life cycle of a built asset.”
The Asite CDE was subject to a comprehensive assessment and audit of its functionality, development, security, resilience, support, and customer satisfaction.
The certification gives assurance that the user-functionality of the Asite CDE enables information management in accordance with the relevant process requirements of the ISO 19650 framework.
The Asite Digital Engineering team is also one of only a few organizations worldwide with a British Standards Institution’s Associate Consultant Programme (BSI ACP) certificate of membership. It consults on the BS EN ISO 19650 standards and supports clients in their journey to achieve BSI BIM Kitemarks.
