If it can be measured, it can be improved upon; this is how our quality program is communicated to our Project Teams. Barnard takes a proactive approach in quality from the corporate level through the field personnel. Our individual project leaders, the Vice Presidents/Operations Managers, ensure that from the outset quality is addressed in the company’s training programs, and that continual monitoring and maintenance of the quality program are performed at each project location.
Barnard has an all-encompassing quality manual that addresses both quality assurance and quality control. Our quality manual is compliant with ISO 9001:2008.
At each project, we develop a thorough, site-specific quality plan that strives to achieve a uniform and high quality level of workmanship throughout the phases of procurement, fabrication, construction, and final facility testing and delivery. Discussion about quality assurance and quality control is on the agenda at our daily, weekly and monthly meetings onsite and off.
In working with clients and quality control inspectors, we know that our focus on partnering and teamwork is essential. Our good relationships at the field activity level have been noted by all types of construction personnel. This practice of open communication lends itself to keeping quality in the forefront of every individual’s work goals.
