DTB Architects has implemented an Integrated Management System which incorporates Quality, Environmental Sustainability and Health & Safety.
The Quality Policy has been Certified to ISO 9001:2015. DTB have recently successfully been re certified for Quality to 2021 by the external auditor BSI.
The Environmental Policy and the Health and Safety Policy align with ISO 14001:2015 and AS/NZS 4801:2001 respectively.
DTB Architects regards an Integrated Management System as fundamental to providing customer based service and a successful business.
The policies apply to our complete scope of work in the practice of Architecture and Interior Design and to all those involved in the work, including owners and end users.
A summary of our policies are included here.
DTB’s in-house education policy is put into effect in part, by allowing every staff member who has been involved in the documentation of the project to attend the formal Site Meetings on a rotating basis.
Robert as DTB’s senior CAD technician, being profoundly deaf, has had limited opportunity to date in his career to gain first-hand experience on construction sites and is really enjoying the experience.
Thanks to the availability of interpreters through government assistance programs, Robert is not only able to partake in the site inspections but also attend the formal site meetings, to gain first-hand experience of the dynamics in a construction program.
Apparently, the interpreters are also enjoying the opportunity to explore a new field to expand their own expertise.
