A façade which looks good, performs in
the long-term, delivered with service.

quality at our core

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 the following systems in place:
  • ISO 9001 Quality Management System (QMS)
  • A2O Project Quality Plan & Design Quality Plan
  • A2O series of detailed Schedules and Operations Manual
  • A2O tablet-based Inspection & Test Plans (ITPs)
  • LPS 1531 certification for Passive Fire Protection with Bolster


The Design Quality Plan includes the pre-start checklist, scope of works and specification; design programme and phasing; design deliverables, design risks; completion checklist and more.

The Design and Procurement teams use a series of detailed Schedules, listing all potential requirements for fixings, finishes, flashings, fire barriers and more.

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

REVIT & large-scale models

On large or complex projects, bespoke materials are specified and complicated details or interfaces are called for. As appropriate, A2O may create: A REVIT model to coordinate the design with the client’s architect and engineers. Large-Scale Mock-Ups, built with the supplier and used to obtain detailed feedback from the client and their architect.


A2Operations Manual covers good practice at every stage of construction. A2O have created an in-house library of tablet-based Inspection & Test Plans (ITPs), which cover a wide range of cladding components and systems to check every component following installation. A2O can provide certification of Passive Fire Protection to LPS 1531, using the Bolster system to record the location of each fire barrier – read more.
