Newcastle Upon Tyne, U.K. (PRWEB) June 23, 2014
Viewpoint Construction Software® announces the United Kingdom’s Ministry of Justice (MOJ) has selected 4Projects’ 4BIM model server to achieve Level 2 BIM across all their future development projects. The Ministry of Justice was tasked to be an early adopter of achieving Level 2 BIM by the U.K. government, and set out to select the right vendor to help them achieve this status. Viewpoint’s 4BIM was successful in a U.K. Government ‘GCloud’ tender and was selected as the vendor of choice to enable the MOJ to provide a common data environment for their entire supply chain of more than 3,000 individuals, to produce quality COBie data to collaborate more effectively and fulfill the Level 2 BIM mandate as specified in PAS 1192 parts 2 & 3.
“We selected 4Projects through competitive tender. We were happy that 4Projects won that competition having worked with the product before on previous projects. The functionality 4Projects provides us means we can work together with our supply chain in a fully collaborative environment to achieve and realise the objective of delivering projects on time and on budget with much greater efficiency – one of the primary drivers of Level 2 BIM” stated Terry Stocks, Head of Programme & Project Delivery, Estate Directorate, Ministry of Justice. “Although collaboration tools such as 4Projects are not new, BIM has accelerated the need to understand why it is so important and we are pleased to have selected the system that will play a key role in our project delivery and asset management going forward.”
“MOJ’s selection of 4Projects’ 4BIM will most certainly clear a path for other U.K. agencies and capital project managers in their evaluation and selection of an extremely well vetted and tested BIM collaboration system,” stated Alun Baker, Managing Director of Viewpoint EMEA. “It is a critical time for all those managing government sponsored projects with the mandate of achieving Level 2 BIM quickly approaching in 2016. We are happy to be a part of this exciting time in the U.K.’s construction history, and are proud our products are helping to deliver the functionality necessary to make a valuable impact on how key stakeholders are working collaboratively on projects, while also meeting the requirements of the regulation.”
