Watts & Hughes Construction Company Policies
By adopting and implementing robust company policies in the areas of Project Methodology, Quality Assurance, Health and Safety and Environmental Control, Watts & Hughes Construction is able to offer clients the confidence that their design-build construction project will be professionally managed from start to finish.
Our clients demand excellence and why shouldn’t they? With our vast experience in all aspects of building design and construction, Watts & Hughes has set in place careful procedures and processes to ensure excellence at every step from the initial design phase to a fully completed construction project.
Construction project management
Vast experience with developing project management methodologies.
We appoint a Contracts Manager to each development who then implements the Project Plan which includes the Construction Programme; Trade Budgets as well as the Site Establishment, Health and Safety and Quality Control Plans. Our primary aim is to ensure quality construction is delivered on time and we keep our clients informed at every stage along the way.
Ensuring successful projects
Quality construction is the key ingredient
We employ a range of quality initiation, assessment, monitoring, and completion processes, all to ISO standard, which are overseen by the construction project manager for that site. Each construction site has a Quality Control Manual that has been uniquely adapted for the particular requirements of that site. Our team ensures that all quality control procedures are followed.
Health and Safety Policies
Site safety is of paramount importance
All employees are given safety training as well as information booklets and ongoing training, including site by site assessments. Because of our thoroughness with H&S, we’ve had no serious injuries over the past five years, no lost days from accidents or mechanical failure and also no environmental damage or pollution incidents. Our aim, as a top construction management company in New Zealand, is to ensure our construction sites remain safe and productive workplaces. We currently have two staff members who are completing the Green Star Accreditation training and we have one staff member who is an Accredited Green Star Professional.
Sustainable design and construction
Green design strategies and sustainable construction methods.
We offer our clients the very latest in sustainable building planning and building construction techniques. This allows us to incorporate a variety of environmentally friendly design features. Participating in the Green Star Accreditation training, developed by the New Zealand Green Building Council (NZGBC), gives us full assess to the environmental impact of a building by looking at its site selection, design, construction and maintenance. We also implement a number of environmentally friendly policies around reducing waste, reuse of materials and recycling.
