Against a backdrop of controlling spiralling costs, what are the steps required to deliver assurance, essentially to get the right specialists doing the right job at the right time?

At Roperhurst we deliver customer assurance through four pillars, which we call “4Ssurance®”:

Specialism               Standards                Stability                  Safety

Our pillars support delivery of a quality, compliant, on-time, best value project.  We recognise that weakness in one or more pillars will cause problems, some of which may be fatal either to the project, those working on it or the end user.

4Ssurance – Specialism

We wouldn’t use an unqualified generalist to replace our gas boiler and similarly we must choose the right specialist for safety-critical tasks.

The Competence and Compliance Challenge means adopting 4Ssurance® as the four pillars which support that thing called “a quality project”.  Every project is different, and what makes a strong pillar may vary accordingly, but omissions in one or more of these pillars has the potential to destabilise your project.  A BESA specialist established for 30 years with factory capacity, an excellent reputation and a strong balance sheet – perhaps the lack of ISO9001 doesn’t make the pillar too weak; but a non-BESA specialist established for a few years with little in the way of external certification and a weak balance sheet – then the pillars are very flimsy.  No surprise if the job is offered cheaper, but at greatly increased risks.
