Our Quality Policy
Barr Gazetas is an architectural practice registered under the Chartered Practice scheme of the Royal Institute of British Architecture (RIBA) and has chosen to adopt a formal system for managing the quality of work. The model employed for this is the international Standard NS EN ISO 9001:2015 – Quality Management Systems and we have used guidance prepared by RIBA (The RIBA Quality Toolkit) and supplementary guidance from other authoritative sources.
It is our conviction that in being an RIBA Chartered Practice and adopting systems such as those herein will help us deliver our objective of providing a reliable and competent architectural service to our clients and the users of the buildings we design or other services we provide as architects. We also believe that the systems will assist us in collaborations and other working relationships with other professional and/ or contractors and suppliers.
There is 100% commitment within the practice to the operation and upkeep of our systems, which are regularly reviewed and updated against our own methods and against changes in external influences. There include quality standards, legislation, industry standards, custom or practice.
All new staff are instructed in the requirements and use of the systems as part of their introduction to the wider objectives of the practice.
The triple principles of Checking, Tracking and Reviewing are constant throughout. The programme is designed to meet the requirement of ISO 9001:2015.
The Quality Policy is communicated and maintained within the office by the commitment of the Directors and Associates to maintain a hands-on approach to every project in the office and to debate current projects and Quality issues.
