The certification to ISO 19650 would constitute a formal recognition of their BIM capabilities and would provide them with a competitive edge, allowing to improve the bid-hit rates, enhance capabilities to meet client expectations and expand business in the region and beyond. Hill International is the first PMC Company to achieve ISO Certification Part 3 (Asset Operation) in the Middle East. 

The two companies plan to continue working together to ensure consistency and quality across Hill International’s management systems, re-enforced by certification through LRQA.

Amine Tayeg, Regional QMS Director at Hill International, said: "LRQA was among three tier-1 global consultants that we consulted with during the selection of the certification company for our 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 we have as PMC to achieve the BIM certification. This combined with timely responses to our queries gave us confidence that LRQA will be able to support our global operations during the initial certification process and throughout the follow-up certification activities."

LRQA's ability to efficiently mobilize resources, and explain the process, gave us confidence in their BIM certification process and follow-up activities.
