Accreditations Update

BriggsAmasco is accredited to a number of schemes under the Safety Schemes in Procurement (SSIP) umbrella.

These include:

  • Safecontractor
  • CHAS (The Contractors Health and Safety Assessment Scheme)
  • SMAS (Safety Management Advisory Services)
  • Constructionline (health & safety element only)

These accreditations began for BriggsAmasco in 1999, with Constructionline. This was followed with Safecontractor, in 2001 (when it was called “Supplyline”) and CHAS in 2004. SMAS is a relatively new accreditation for the company.

Initially, these were all accreditations made independently of each other, requiring duplication of information and, frequently, information to be provided in a different way.

To address this duplication of time, effort and cost, the Government commissioned a report called “Accelerating the SME Economic Engine: Through Transparent, Simple and Strategic Procurement (2008), in a bid to simplify the process of assessment. On the back of this, SSIP was founded in May 2009, which brought together certain elements of individual assessments, but allowed clients to retain their independence in selecting which assessment scheme they preferred.

BriggsAmasco now uses Safecontractor as its principal assessment, which then “deems to satisfy” the criteria of CHAS, SMAS and the health & safety element of Constructionline, although each accreditation still requires some additional or confirmation information.

Janice Tyler, BriggsAmasco’s Environment and Supply Chain Manager, facilitates these assessments. “These accreditations give our clients confidence in our commitment to health & safety and in our compliance with both legal requirements and our own good practices.”

Quality in Flat Roofing: Sharing What We Know

David Maginnis and Tony Lawther were invited to present a case study on behalf of BriggsAmasco at the RIBAJ Morning Seminar: Quality in Flat Roofing – Sharing What We Know, a joint enterprise between the RIBA Journal and SIG Design & Technology.

The seminar took place on 23rd November 2016 at the Building Centre in London, WC1 and was attended by around 60 delegates, mainly architects.

The BriggsAmasco presentation centred on our experiences during one of the largest and most challenging projects to take place during the recession – the refurbishment of the 1960s Birmingham New Street Station.

Between April 2012 and September 2015, we installed 7 different roofing systems over an area of 18,005m², with 97% of materials sourced from the UK. Alongside our existing employees, we recruited specifically for this project and at its peak had 50 staff and trades people working on site. We provided training, with 720 hours being achieved overall in conjunction with BGP.

Apart from the challenges of design and logistics, the station had to remain fully operational whilst the integration of new and old structures took place, which was a huge challenge for all concerned.

The seminar closed with a Q&A panel where Dave, Tony and the other presenters responded to a variety of questions from the delegates
