Boosting Efficiency: ISO 19650 Certification Empowers Hill's Knowledge Integration & Consolidation

BIM Case Study

BIM: The Game Changer

The ISO 19650 standard is an international standard for managing information over the whole life cycle of a built asset using Building Information Modelling (BIM).

The use of BIM and related technologies are increasingly becoming standard practice in Hill International’s major markets and throughout its regional project operations. Hill’s teams have already been involved in delivering BIM management related services on several major projects. The ISO 19650 certification would enable Hill to consolidate, document, and integrate the acquired knowledge and expertise into their management system processes and standard practices. Hill’s support functions are centrally operated from the regional offices and cover worldwide project operations in 5 continents. When Hill decided to implement the multisite BIM ISO certification for their Middle East and APAC operations, it was very important for them to select a certification company that operates globally to ensure smooth coordination during the initial and follow-up auditing activities.

LRQA's ability to efficiently mobilize resources and subject- matter experts presented better opportunities for developing further areas of collaboration.

How LRQA and Hill International worked together

LRQA was among three tier-1 global consultants that Hill consulted with during the selection of the certification company for their BIM certification. What differentiated LRQA was the ability to efficiently mobilize resources (subject matter experts) from different geographical locations (UAE, Singapore, UK) to explain the process and the possibilities that they have as PMC to achieve the BIM certification. This, combined with timely responses to Hill’s queries, gave them confidence that LRQA would be able to support their global operations during the initial certification process and throughout the follow-up certification activities.

Impact of ISO 19650 Certification

The formal recognition of BIM capabilities that the ISO certification provides to Hill International:

  • It allows them to better showcase Hill’s expertise and promote their services to clients.

  • It ensures better consolidation and accumulation of knowledge across Hill’s global operations.

  • ISO 19650’s structured framework for continual improvement secures a leading position among the competition as a top-tier BIM management consultancy firm.


"Amine Tayeg, Regional Quality and Management Systems Director at Hill International says, the implementation of the ISO 19650 certification provides additional assurance that potential inconsistencies in the services delivered by our teams across our global operations will be systematically addressed through our standardized processes, thus ensuring improved performance and effective delivery of our services.
