Dubai's Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) has been awarded the British Standards Institute's (BSI) certification for its implementation of building information modelling (BIM). 

With this development, RTA reportedly becomes the world's first government entity to receive the BIM Kite-Mark PAS 1192-2:2013, BS 1192-4:2014 and BS 1192:2007 credentials.

An assessment team carried out a comprehensive study of RTA's procedures.

Following the study, BSI's chairman reported that the transport authority's BIM implementation "was of high standard, and the assessment team hadn’t detected any lack of conformity in RTA’s system", Dubai Media Office reported.

At the conclusion of the assessment, RTA obtained BSI certification for its work with BIM at the design and implementation stages.

Remarking on the BSI credentials, HE Mattar Al Tayer, director-general and chairman of the board of executive directors of RTA, said the certification "paves the way for taking [unconventional] decisions and assists us in realising our interests in a short time". 

Saeed Al Ramsi, director of asset at RTA, added: "This certificate is a true reflection of the advanced level achieved by RTA in [BIM] over the past three years in terms of carrying out the analyses required, developing viable strategic plans and manuals, and the starting of the practical implementation of the BIM in several strategic projects."
