Quality Assurance Policy
Demolition 1 Ltd believes in the importance of client satisfaction, quality-based management and a culture of progressive development within the company for a sustainable success in the industry.
We base our quality assurance policy on the following values:
Providing the most appropriate solutions and services to clients through assessment of their needs and project demands.
Conforming to valid standards within the context of the project at the maximum level: contract agreement conditions; all legal arrangements and laws; other compulsory standards and ethical rules.
Being committed to using modern and valid techniques, material and management systems.
Managing the company’s human resources efficiently and effectively to help the completion of projects by deadline and conforming to every quality standard prescribed.
Communicating effectively with clients.
Creating satisfying and ongoing relations with subcontractors, suppliers and project partners based on good intentions and trust.
Waste Minimisation & Management
Demolition 1 Ltd prides itself on playing its part in ensuring waste on each project is reduced as much as possible, and what cannot be re-used or recycled is managed in a safe and environmentally sound way.
We comply with the Resource Management Act and local council specifications for waste management.
In a typical house demolition the following material is recycled: roof tiles, roofing iron, bricks, concrete (crushed into aggregate and steel removed for recycling), fibreglass batts, gib board, window glass, native and non-native framing timber and flooring, weather boards, internal and external doors, timber beams, steel beams, copper and steel pipes, electrical wiring (apart from plastic coating), stainless steel sinks, taps etc, hot water cylinders.
We take a similarly comprehensive approach on our larger scale commercial projects.
The keys to successful waste minimisation are how well your staff have been trained and good supervision of staff. Understanding and communication of company methodology in this regard is essential and something the company takes seriously.
Effective demolition and recycling more often than not depends on the ability to be innovative and to think outside the square. Our waste methodology can be summed up effectively as: WE DEMOLISH. WE RECYCLE. WE RE-USE.
