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:
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.
Where bespoke materials are specified or complicated interfaces are called for, A2O may, on occasion, create mock-ups with the supplier for feedback from the client and their architect.
A2O have created an in-house library of Inspection & Test Plans (ITPs), which cover a wide range of cladding components and systems.
The company has very detailed schedules listing all potential requirements for fixings, finishes, flashings, fire barriers and more.
