QUALITY MANAGEMENT PROCESS
Control of critical materials components from NZ ensures quality of product durability and fit for the project. We retain the ability to offer full warranties on materials used in the project.
Electronic tracking of all goods ensures a real time auditable trail of materials from source to site and mitigates many of the shortage issues associated with construction projects.
Provision of experienced management who have many years experience with TCS products and systems, ensures responsible, timely and well managed project delivery.
Capacity Building Policy
TCS have a policy to employ the maximum local labour resources and provide quality on site training to ensure the local community retains a well trained local workforce at the conclusion of a project.
Our policy to employ a minimum of 20% female workers on site has proven over the years to be a significant advantage to site conduct, productivity and social gain in regard to gender equality and respect, with female workers gaining skills they otherwise may not has access to.
Development of a professional trained local workforce during a project, ensures that “after project” maintenance can be managed at a local level to the standard of the original build. This also offers the client the option of using this trained local component as permanent maintenance personnel.
TCS recognises the international desire to build capacity in many of the nations that we seek to assist.
One of our core values is to undertake projects with the maximum local input and provide dedicated training to these local workers. A focused TCS target is to have a minimum 20% of our local workforce made up of female workers. This provides an important gender equality platform which is a hugely valuable social development issue for many of the pacific communities we are working in.
This training extends beyond technical construction skills to safety, organisational and social skill development.
We are committed to not only leaving all our off shore projects with infrastructure that exceeds our clients expectations but also a local skill base that can be used for further construction, maintenance of completed works and a set of work values that they can use positively going forward in their local communities.
