    Surbana Jurong, first in Singapore to attain new international Building standard.

    Surbana Jurong, leading infrastructure and urban design consultancies based in Asia, has become the first company in Singapore to be awarded the new ISO 19650 accreditation for the digitisation of design and engineering data for buildings and civil engineering works, including building information modelling (BIM). The firm is also the first consultancy in Asia to attain the new certification.

    The accreditation, approved by the International Standards Organisation (ISO), demonstrates the group’s compliance with the highest BIM modelling standards in projects. Building authorities around the world, including Singapore’s Building and Construction Authority (BCA), have identified BIM as a key technology for improving productivity and integration across disciplines in the built environment value chain.
