Systematic quality management
With 130 years' experience in the property and construction industry, and offices throughout the world, our global expertise is matched by unrivalled local knowledge. We follow tried and tested procedures at all stages of construction.
We develop a detailed understanding of the brief, and identify relevant statutory requirements. We participate in the handover of the site to the contractor and review relevant documentation.
In the design and tender stage we:
- Ensure that a recognised quality management system is provided by each contractor
- Ensure that the quality standards are defined, agreed and communicated within the contract documents
- Review the contractor's experience
Gleeds’ on-site procedures are achieved using suitably qualified building surveyors and engineers to monitor materials and workmanship. They oversee that the works are implemented in accordance with the approved design, adopting a robust procedure for sign off. Our two-tier management approach often involves project managers monitoring inspectors.
We review the development, make sure that any defects are addressed, and confirm that all documentation is provided.
We actively participate in Soft Landing Reviews.
