Quality Built® is the only construction risk inspection firm in the United States that has been awarded a certification from The International Standards Organization (ISO). In 2007, Quality Built received its first certification, ISO 9001:2000, and in March 2010, ISO recertified Quality Built under ISO 9001:2008.
ISO is a world-wide standards organization that is widely supported by the largest companies and governments in 161 countries with the responsibility for setting international industry standards. ISO has developed over 18,000 International Standards on a variety of subjects. Companies receiving certification undergo intense multi-day audits by a third-party auditor to verify compliance in virtually every business category. Auditors review written policies, processes, procedures, and employees throughout companies to verify that the company has a profound knowledge of its procedures and a commitment to processes and procedures that produce standardized and consistent work product. Not only were Quality Built’s internal quality standards and processes verified, its external field data collection processes were scrutinized to ensure that the company’s means and methods produced consistent results.
Quality Built’s ISO Certification ensures that Quality Built has the standardized data collection processes and procedures necessary to collect reliable data for properly modeling and assessing risk and potential economic losses.
