ISO accreditation reinforces modular building firm’s strength in construction industry

A firm specialising in designing and manufacturing modular buildings has reinforced its place in the construction industry and is poised for further growth after achieving accreditation for two ISO standards.

Integra Buildings has successfully achieved ISO 14001 and ISO 45001 certifications with the support of Absolute Quality Consultancy & Training, who specialise in helping businesses drive continual improvement.

The milestone affirms Integra’s commitment to environmental responsibility (ISO 14001), and occupational health and safety (ISO 45001).

The company already had been following and achieving quality management (ISO 9001) and BSEN1090 requirements. The additional certifications further strengthen and develop their integrated management system to support their ambitious growth and development plans.

Safety, Health, Environment, and Quality (SHEQ) director and co-owner of the Company, Paul Tansey, said: “As a forward-thinking company, these measures will ensure we continue to out-perform the market with our outstanding team, exceptional track record of project delivery, and successful tendering for major contracts with public sector clients across the UK.”

Paul worked closely with Jack Nunnerley, Consultant and Trainer at Absolute Quality, to achieve the accreditations.

He continued: “We had processes in place that covered environmental responsibility and occupational health and safety, and Jack helped us not only formalise them and gain accreditation but also ensured every member of staff throughout the business engaged in the entire journey.

“He understands standards are applied differently in all organisations and provided us with a bespoke service which is second to none. This has resulted in enhancing our efficiency and performance to achieve our business objectives.”

Based at Paull, east of Hull, Integra employs 175 people and provides a range of modular and anti-vandal products for sectors including construction, education, defence, healthcare, leisure, and sport.

The company was also recently appointed onto a £10billion Government framework, delivered by the Crown Commercial Service (CCS), to drive investment in the modular and offsite construction sector.

Jack said: “Integra had all the systems in place and needed support to integrate and coordinate them across the business. Helping them to achieve these accreditations reaffirms their position as a lead player in the construction industry.”

“It’s a pleasure to work with a company that is so engaged and passionate about following best practice principles and I look forward to seeing them enjoy future success.”

Paul concluded: “We strive to provide the highest standards for our customers, while minimising our environmental impact, and safeguarding the health and safety of our employees and achieving these incredibly valued standards is testament to this.”
