How ISO certification can help your construction company

ISO standards can provide your construction business with robust management systems covering a range of processes. Gaining ISO certification in these standards can help you complete pre-qualification questionnaires, qualify for government contracts and win tenders.

Our professional consultants have been helping construction businesses around the world implement these standards for over 20 years. We offer a fast and cost effective route to ISO certification. We can also advise you on the most appropriate standard for your business.

Which ISO standards are best for my construction business?

You can choose from various ISO Management Systems. However, the ones best suited to the construction industry are ISO 9001 for Quality Management, ISO 14001 for Environmental Management and OHSAS 18001 for Health and Safety. They all follow the ‘plan-do-check-act’ principle. This helps reduce errors, improve processes and ensure you deliver projects on time.

Many construction companies rely on subcontractors working for them as part of the team. The ISO 9001 standard can help you continually manage the quality of your subcontractors’ work. It will ensure you have appropriate controls and processes in place to deliver projects efficiently. The standard also puts in place procedures for regularly monitoring approved supplier lists.

What are the benefits of ISO certification?

ISO certification for your construction business could deliver the following benefits:

  • Improved employee training, development and communication
  • More efficient delivery of products and services
  • Compliance with legislation and regulations
  • Reduced costs
  • Reduced errors
  • Greater ability to deliver projects on time
