Stanley Security is the first security company to achieve BIM Level 2 accreditation in the UK.

Building Information Modelling (BIM) is a shared knowledge resource, providing all of the information about every component of a building, in one easy to access place. It enables construction professionals to digitally model a building and use the BIM data to reduce the risk of mistakes or discrepancies at an early stage, making for more cost-effective, safe construction, improved carbon performance and predictable planning.

As one of the UK’s leading security companies, Stanley Security’s customer base extends from small businesses with a single intruder alarm system through to large integrated security systems operating across multiple sites in the commercial and public sectors.  Achieving BIM Level 2 accreditation has become increasingly important not only for full participation in public sector projects – construction suppliers tendering for centrally procured government projects must be working at BIM Level 2 – but for organisations in the commercial sector looking to reap the benefits of this advanced approach to construction.

Jason Wescombe, Design Manager – GB at Stanley Security, explains: “From early in 2017 we noticed increasing customer enquiries relating to BIM services, ranging from design and construction, including COBie, to the provision of BIM Object Libraries. There was also increased Pre-Qualification Questionnaires relating to BIM Level 2, which was very much a new turn of events.  “We went out to the market to actively engage customers on the subject of BIM and it quickly became clear that BIM Level 2 capabilities had to be developed to meet future client requirements, and not just in the public sector.”
