Chawton Hill has once again achieved certification to the internationally recognised ISO 9001:2015 standard, establishing us as one of the leading businesses in the Chartered Surveying field.
This independent assessment was conducted by the British Assessment Bureau, a leading Certification Body, and demonstrates our commitment to ISO 9001: customer service and quality in delivery.
We have now earned the right to display the coveted British Assessment Bureau quality shield and ISO 9001:2015 logo to demonstrate our conformance to the standard.
ISO 9001 was first introduced in 1987 and requires organisations to demonstrate that they do what they say they do, and that they have a Quality Management System in place to ensure consistency and improvement; leading to high levels of performance and customer satisfaction. Certified organisations are committed to continuous improvement and are assessed to ensure progress is being maintained.
MD, David Edwards said “We’re particularly pleased to have achieved the latest ISO 9001:2015 certification as it underlines our commitment to our customers and our focus on quality. Not many customers get to see their suppliers’ ‘back office’ activities. This recognition demonstrates we can provide a quality solution from quotation through to delivery.”
The benefits of certification to ISO 9001 include:
- Streamlining an organisation’s procedures;
- Bringing consistency to an organisation’s service delivery;
- Reducing cost and rework;
- Improving an organisation’s management practices;
- Enhanced status;
- Competitive advantage;
- Lower insurance premiums.
Chawton Hill has over 16 years’ experience within the building survey & building project management industry and has grown steadily from its formation in 2002. It’s now one of the larger Chartered Surveying companies in the South East of England, delivering over 40, high quality residential building surveys to customers each month and multi million pound building projects to clients such as South East Coast Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust.
THE BRITISH ASSESSMENT BUREAU
The British Assessment Bureau’s reputation was established in 1969 as a specialist in certification scheme management. In 1997, the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry approved the use of the word ‘British’ in their title, in recognition of their pre-eminent status.
Today, they certify organisations to recognised standards, including ISO 9001 (quality management), ISO 14001 (environmental management), ISO 27001 (information security management) and OHSAS 18001 (occupational health and safety management). They also design and manage bespoke assessment schemes. Such schemes are based on the establishment of standards, which can be developed to be recognised company-wide, industry-wide, nationally, or internationally.
