Engineering Contracting gets BIM ISO certification

DUBAI, October 15, 2019

Engineering Contracting Company (ECC) said it has become the first contractor in the UAE to receive ISO certification for building information modelling (BIM), an international accolade from BSI.

An intelligent 3D model-based platform, BIM provides users with insights with insights and tools to plan, design, construct and manage buildings. It generates greater collaborative potential between the architects, designers and contractors by collating all aspects of the development into one consolidated workstream.

In 2018, ECC became one of the first locally-grown companies in the UAE to receive the BIM Kitemark Certification from BSI.

Continuing in the path of innovation, the company developed an organic BIM department internally, setting precedence in the market and have become a pioneer in the adoption, implementation and certification of BIM ISO standards in the UAE.

Ahmed Elhadidy, the technical and BIM manager, said: "ECC's ethos is to deliver sustainable, efficient cutting-edge solutions to our clients by staying abreast of international industry standards."

"Since our inception in 1975, we have set a benchmark in the market for high quality, value-engineered projects and are continuing in the same path of excellence," noted Elhadidy.

"Sustainable growth in a competitive market requires the earliest possible adoption of new technologies and systems to remain cost-effective and efficient – a principle ECC has adopted across all facets of our operation to become a lean company," he added.

BIM ensures that all processes are adaptable, flexible and carried out in the most efficient manner possible.

Project clashes or inconsistencies in design, materials and their quantities are realized in earlier stages of the project, making BIM invaluable in coordinating information across departments.

ECC boasts a track record of innovative and challenging projects. With its 9,000-strong workforce, it
can deliver dynamic solutions to its very broad range of clients at all stages of construction.-TradeArabia News Service
