Bradley Environmental Consultants, which has over 140 staff and provides UKAS Accredited Asbestos Inspections and Testing services across the UK, will now be able to share, via an online platform, its performance in key business areas, such as health and safety, environment, quality and compliance.

In total, 19 national and international construction companies have selected Achilles BuildingConfidence as their preferred standard for supplier pre-qualification. They use a standardised pre-qualification questionnaire to streamline the procurement process and manage risk consistently among 2,000 suppliers. Achilles then carries out desktop and physical audits of the information.

Lee Brunsden, Manager of Achilles BuildingConfidence, said: “By demonstrating a clear commitment to health and safety, environment, quality and compliance, Bradley Environmental Consultants has shown itself to be a role model for other construction companies, and put itself in the best possible position to secure a pipeline of work opportunities from major construction buyers.”

Steve Flynn on behalf of Bradley Environmental Consultants said: “We believe that the Achilles accreditation can help accelerate our business growth by connecting Bradley Environmental Consultants with buyers who are looking for qualified Asbestos Inspection and Testing specialists who can be measured against industry standards and policies. We understand the importance of being visible to new Clients which creates the opportunity for us to enter new Markets.”

Bradley Environmental attained their new industry qualification following Audits in April 2017.

Achilles BuildingConfidence is run by a Steering Group of construction buyers. In the last three years, members have seen a 52% reduction in non compliances in issues linked to ethics, a 42% fall in non-compliance on health and safety, a 50% drop in non-compliance around risk assessment and a three-fold increase in demand for audits.
