We have all seen the extreme consequences of getting quality wrong in our trade. A quality installation does not just mean that the façade installation looks great. It must also perform well in the long term. Quality is also the customer experience.

To ensure quality is delivered, we have in place:

  • ISO 9001 quality management system
  • LPS 1531 certification for passive fire protection
  • A2O Design Quality Plan & Project Quality Plan
  •  A2O Operations Manual
  • SHEQ Manager auditing quality throughout the project

A project quality plan to assess each component

The Quality Plan comprises the project directory; checklist of project information; training requisites and record, programme requirements, material deliveries and handling, risk assessment, site communication and more.

tablet-based QA SYSTEM Inspection & Test Plans

A2O have created an in-house library of Inspection & Test Plans (ITPs), which cover a wide range of cladding components and systems.
