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?

Many construction companies rely on subcontractors, needing them to work as part of the team. ISO 9001 helps you manage your subcontractors on a continual basis, ensuring that appropriate processes and procedures are in place and that control is effectively managed. The standard also ensures that Suppliers are regularly monitored through an approved supplier list.
Gaining the ISO 45001 certification allows you to demonstrate that your business operates a best-practice Occupational Health and Safety Management System – reducing the likelihood of on-site accidents and breaches of legislation, as well as improving your organisation’s overall performance.
This Standard will help you quantify, monitor and control the ongoing environmental impact of your construction operations. By managing the use of natural resources, energy and waste you can improve your corporate image and credibility, helping you to win new customers as well as identify opportunities for cost savings.
