The Centregreat Group operates an integrated Quality Management System (QMS) that is compliant and accredited to the requirements of BS EN ISO 9001 and 14001 and OHSAS 18001.
The integrated QMS works on the PLAN-DO- CHECK-ACT (PDCA) principle:
Quality Plans are our main tool for implementing our Quality Assurance procedures and provide a framework for the execution and delivery of works activities with zero ‘defects’.
Quality Plans cover the process from inception through to the end of the defects period and include:
- Our organisation and management
- Our method statements and procedures
- Our process for quality control in construction/ installation
- The quality plans for our supply chain partners
