Atkins to Provide BIM Services to HS2 Project
Posted on: 16/03/2015

World renowned consultancy Atkins has secured a four-year deal providing building information modelling (BIM) services on the HS2 £43bn project.

The company will be responsible for providing technical support to HS2 Ltd, working together to achieve a super-speed rail link between London and the North of England.

The government have revealed that BIM Level 2 will be mandated on all of their projects moving forwards from 2016, meaning that partnerships such as this that encourage the common data environment of BIM will become more common.

HS2 Director of BIM Jon Kerbey said: “I am very pleased that Atkins are on board to help us achieve our vision of delivering a world-class implementation of BIM.

“HS2 is one of the largest infrastructure projects in Europe and a fantastic opportunity to embed BIM right from day one, delivering real value to the project- and to the industry as a whole.”

Mark Roberts, Director at Atkins said: “Adoption of BIM will revolutionise programmes like High Speed 2, materially improving delivery efficiency and success, and embedding an approach that looks beyond design and construction into the requirements and benefits for the whole operational life of the railway.

“We are delighted to have been chosen to work alongside our HS2 and supply chain colleagues to implement a BIM approach that we believe will be ground breaking, deliver great success and ultimately help support the UK’s economic prosperity.”
