Fusion Building Systems has successfully passed its annual surveillance assessments of ISO9001 and ISO14001 and its transfer to registrar Approachable Certification, marking five years of management and environmental excellence since the business was first assessed in 2014.
The ISO standards specifically for quality management and environmental systems are key to Fusion’s work in the offsite construction industry, where developers can be severely penalised for not demonstrating due diligence.
The audits, which were undertaken earlier this month, looked at Fusion’s management, environmental control and improvement activity in significant depth. The following areas in particular were commended:
- The knowledge level of Fusion’s ‘ISO Guides’ working across the business, both on and off site
- Fusion’s forward-looking approach with the adoption of state of the art, integrated software technology for design and construction
- The Company’s process management in terms of quality control, subcontractor management, training and environmental commitments
- Its almost waste-free construction process
- Fusion’s management controls, reviews and auditing programmes both internally and for external partners.
Laurence McCormack, Fusion Building Systems’ quality systems manager, said: “We challenge ourselves on a daily basis to improve the way we work, to innovate our products and to find ways of developing new solutions which can help drive the offsite construction industry forward.
“Having not had a single non-conformance raised since we were first assessed in 2014 demonstrates how we’re hard we’re working to maintain high standards across all areas of the business. This recent assessment not only approved our certification for another year, but has confirmed so many areas of our business are delivering best practice, meaning peace of mind for us and for our clients.”
