The Building People has announced that its quality management system and environmental management system have achieved the latest benchmarks of the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), an independent organization that sets criteria to ensure products and services are safe, reliable, and of good quality.
The Building People is an SBA 8(a) and HUBZone certified firm that delivers total lifecycle solutions for clients by integrating technology, buildings, and people to solve complex challenges for building owners, occupants and stakeholders. An independent and objective registration and certification company audited The Building People to ensure the company conforms with the ISO standards.
The Building People received its certificate of registration for ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 14001:2015 for demonstrating its ability to provide quality, environmental, proposal, contracts, and accounting management on its government contracts for real estate and asset management services. The scope of the certification ensures that The Building People’s program management office follows the highest quality processes and procedures in support of the services provided to the portfolio of clients.
ISO 9001:2015 delineates standards for a quality management system. The standard is based on quality management principles, such as strong customer focus, motivation, and involvement of top management, use of a process approach and continual improvement. The standards help ensure customers get consistent and good quality products and services.
ISO 14001:2015 sets standards for an effective environmental management system. Using this standard can provide assurance that environmental impact is measured and improved.
“This recognition is an important milestone for The Building People,” said Jorie Fields, operations manager at the firm. “Achieving these certifications was a rigorous process, and our success shows that we are truly dedicated to best practices, high quality and continuous improvement.”
