“An Englishman's home is his castle,” This is a very old saying, which initially proclaimed the right for someone to prevent entry to their home. Over time it has progressively been used to imply that people have an exclusive right to act entirely as they please within their own home. The truth is that they do not. This becomes crystal clear to any home owner who decides to undertake significant construction work on, or in proximity to, the boundary between his/her property and that of his/her neighbour.

Adept is the UK's first civil & structural engineering firm to achieve BRE Global BIM Level 2 Business Systems Certification. The certificate is awarded to Adept three months in advance of Government’s mandatory requirement for BIM to be applied to all publically procured buildings.

’Well done to Adept - we know that our BIM business certification process is challenging and rigorous but ultimately it will enhance the competitiveness of Adept in national and international markets and enable them to deliver better value to customers throughout the lifecycle of a project’ said BRE Group’s Director for BIM, Guy Hammersley.

Since 2013 Adept have applied BIM on all their projects including the new Next Distribution Centre in Doncaster, a Staycity Hotel in Manchester, the refurbishment of Leeds Kirkgate Market, the new Humber University Technical College and on residential projects for UK’s McCarthy & Stone and social housing organisations across the UK.

Adept’s Managing Director Erol Erturan says: 'BIM is a great way of demonstrating to clients that we have the right procedures in place at every level to deliver what are very rigorous Government requirements. It also simplifies the tendering process, as once a business is BIM certified its competence levels are guaranteed.’
