Success stories

Knight Asphalte

Knight Asphalte are specialist flat roof and waterproofing contractors operating in London and the South East of England.

We started working with Knight Asphalte in January 2019, developing a management system to help them achieve certification to three ISO standards simultaneously. The brief also included preparation for pre-qualification to the Railway Industry Supplier Qualification Scheme, RISQS.

Implementation

The brief was to build an integrated business management system covering quality (ISO 9001), health and safety (ISO 45001) and the environment (ISO 14001). Our consultant was able to hit the ground running, immediately giving the client the benefit of 30+ years in construction QHSE management and consultancy. From designing the business management system, through implementation, audit and management review, we were with our client every step of the way.

With the high degree of overlap between ISO standards it can make sense to tackle them in parallel rather than one after the other. On paper it looks like a lot of work, but the synergies and savings from an integrated project can keep a lid on the consulting costs, reduce the project duration and produce a more integrated and business-friendly result.

The Outcome

The client was pleased to collaborate on the development of a fully integrated BMS Manual with supporting tools and templates to cover quality, health, safety and environmental aspects. They were even more pleased with the external audit result, a triple crown of UKAS accredited ISO certifications.

Q! Feedback

The client’s comment on the success of the project recognised the strategic and practical contribution made by their QFactorial consultant: “Graham’s support was invaluable in achieving our ISO standards.”
