Show your commitment to Quality, Environment and Safety

Building and construction is the fastest growing industry in Australia. Population growth has caused the industry and demand for houses to grow faster than ever. With this level of increase in the building and construction industry, stakeholders including the customers demand better service and are more cautious about what impact their decisions have on them and other people.

These days all local, state and federal government tenders require the suppliers to be compliant with the International Standards or ISO. Other non-government parties such as Insurance builders, etc are also expecting these standards as a requirement before considering any builder or sub-contractor.

There are three ISO standards for builders to make them achieve:

  • Respond to government tenders

  • Access specialised markets

  • Improve their image (branding) and be part of an international system

  • Be recognised worldwide

  • Generate trust and customer satisfaction

Adding to the above items, ISO standards provide the guideline, systems and pathways that take your building and construction business to next level. Here are some of what involves in each standard (specifically for builders):

What's the process of getting ISO certified?

Thankfully building industry is pretty regulated in Australia and as a builder (domestic or commercial) you might have many of the required documents for these standards already.

However, the standards require a very specific set of documents to be prepared, developed and audited. Many of your existing documents can be modified and improved to be ISO compliant. There is a list of mandatory documents for each standard which are the bare minimum to get your ISO 9001, 14001 or 45001 certifications.

We, at PrimaPerfect, can help you design and develop these documents. First, we run a Gap analysis to find out what you have and what you need. After developing the documents (more than 50 different docs & procedures), we provide full training to your staff to ensure everyone understood what these standards are and what they mean. By any means, it is not useful, if your staff are not on the same page as you.

We perform an Internal Audit to make sure everything is perfect and then you are ready for your certifications.

Here, we can refer you to the Certification bodies we are partnered with and arrange those ISO certificates at a very competitive price.

 

Since we have done this process for builders and construction companies in the past, the process is quite smooth and straightforward.
