J. Murphy & Sons Limited takes the high road to BIM quality

Infrastructure specialist Murphy validates its commitment to BIM through recent BRE Global BIM Level 2 Business Systems Certificate.

Operating in the UK, Ireland and Canada, Murphy provides a range of construction services to infrastructure sectors including rail, water, power and natural resources. Some of its most high-profile projects include Crossrail, the rebuild of Deepham – London’s largest sewage works, as well as working with National Grid on the electrification of the Great Western mainline railway between London and Wales and the west.

Alex Jones, Group Head of BIM & Digital Construction, Murphy, said ‘BIM is a key vehicle for delivering best value to our customers, and underpins our broader digital construction strategy.  Certification means that our policy, tools, training and procedures comply with recognized BIM standards and that we can deliver comfortably in a BIM Level2 environment. This will strengthen our bids and reassure our customers of both our ability and intent to deliver digital excellence.’

Steve Hollingshead, CEO, Murphy, said ‘I’m delighted that we’ve achieved this certification, as it clearly demonstrates we are maturing in line with our ten year plan. As we continue to deliver world-class infrastructure, this shows we have the right skills to meet the growing digital demands of our customers.’

Paul Oakley, BRE Group Director for BIM said ‘Congratulations to Murphy. BIM certification will further enhance their reputation for continuous improvement in their operational processes with their philosophy of improving life by delivering world class infrastructure.’

BRE Global’s BIM Level 2 Business Systems Certification scheme assesses a business in relation to its BIM capability and policy as outlined in the PAS 1192-2:2013 and PAS 91 standards. It also considers the ability of the business to meet the requirements of an employer to implement BIM on a project.
