KEO – making BIM central to future success

Driving innovation, collaboration and efficiency in construction while smartly managing cost and risk.

KEO is a firm of international consultants offering end-to-end services in the built and natural environment sector. They have contributed to many iconic constructions in the Middle East.

The Challenge

Using standards as the foundation for promoting excellence

KEO aims for continuous excellence and implementation of the latest standards to deliver the best outcome for its clients. KEO wanted BIM standards to become part of this.

KEO seeks to continually collaborate more efficiently with any client, partner or sub-consultant worldwide. An early adopter of BIM, KEO used UK BIM standards as reference before the publication of international BIM standards.

KEO saw Kitemark™ certification to BIM (ISO 19650) as a competitive advantage. One that would demonstrate leadership through transparent and industry-wide collaboration using international standards.

The Solution

Delivering enhanced collaboration to deliver success

The BSI Kitemark™ demonstrates KEO’s capabilities and shows clients and collaborators it uses BIM to manage information systematically and securely over the whole lifecycle of a built asset.

Following a gap analysis and initial review of systems and procedures, BSI auditors worked thoroughly with KEO team members, and successfully reviewed the compliance of processes and standards, as well as the implementation of them in KEO projects in the Middle East.

Armed with ISO 19650, KEO now demonstrates resilient and digitally secure processes across the asset lifecycle and is well positioned for accelerated future growth.

The benefits of embracing the BIM-driven future

As a result of certification, KEO is seeing several benefits including the following:
