Since our incorporation in 1987, we realised that we would have to be different if we are to maintain our position - and we are pleased to have achieved this. Our ethos has been to invest significant and continuous training in our staff as this adds value to not just our company but more importantly to our clients as well. Our ongoing improvement has enabled us to bid for and secure contracts from the likes of Norfolk County Council, Suffolk County Council, Norwich City Council and Anglian Water Services Limited. In addition we also work with other developers such as Twigden Homes Limited, Lafarge Aggregates Limited, Balsam (UK) Limited and Biwater Europe Limited, all major players in the market place.
Investors in People
Even before gaining certification in February 2000 we were described as a natural IIP company, which was further born out by us attaining the Eastern Daily Press Staff Care Award in October 1996. This award was particularly pleasing in that a member of staff nominated the company for the award. We have a number of supervisors and trainee supervisors all of whom have considerable experience. Training is an important part of the company's ethos and employees at all levels are encouraged to attend college courses or otherwise engage in continuous development to realise their goals. The ethos begins on site where regular ‘tool box’ talks take place. It is hoped these fuel our employees desire for learning.
Commitment to Quality
We have continued to lead the field in attaining British Standards and are now one of only a handful of national companies to have achieved this milestone. The company has gained certification via the Zurich Certification Board of BS EN ISO 9001:1994, and by Independent European Certification of both the BS EN ISO 14001:1996 and OHSAS 18001: 1999. We are delighted to have now achieved BS EN ISO 9001:2000 on 6th January 2004. The quality symbols on the left of the screen are clickable so that you can see our original certificates.
