Achievement of Gold membership with Constructionline

We are pleased to announce our achievement of Gold membership with Constructionline, giving clients enhanced assurance about our quality, environmental management and safety standards.

To achieve Gold Membership, we provided evidence of our robust systems and procedures for environmental and quality management, Equal Opportunities and Diversity and Building Information Modelling (BIM). Our health and safety standards met the criteria of Constructionline’s Safety Systems in Procurement (SSIP) scheme. Additionally, we demonstrated our legal compliance in key areas such as modern slavery, anti-bribery and corruption, and equal opportunities.

Partner Keith Everitt said “We have held Silver Constructionline membership since 2009.  This achievement of Gold Member status reflects the standards we have implemented and maintained via our Integrated Management System (accredited to ISO 9001 Quality Management, ISO 14001 Environmental Management as well as our other SSIP accreditations (CHAS and APS, click here to view our certificates).”

TFP achieves Cyber Essentials certification

IT Manager David Wollaston proudly displays TFP’s Cyber Essentials certificate

The Tooley & Foster Partnership has achieved IASME-accredited Cyber Essentials certification. Cyber Essentials is a government-backed, industry-supported scheme to help organisations protect themselves against common cyber attacks and to put essential security controls in place.

IT Manager David Wollaston said: “Cyber Essentials is increasingly becoming a must-have standard for professionals across the construction sector. It is particularly welcome that our accreditation coincides with Cyber Resilience Week 2017. This is a signal to our clients, partners and the wider community that we take data security very seriously.”

Partner Khosro Bashi said: “As an RIBA Chartered Practice, the Architects’ Code of Conduct already requires us to ensure that adequate security is in place to safeguard paper and electronic records for clients. We have taken the next step in implementing a proportionate level of cyber protection.

“Whilst the UK construction industry has not yet suffered any known high profile cyber attacks, at Tooley & Foster we can now be sure that we have strong systems in place for protecting our data.”

TFP Granted Corporate Membership of APS

The Tooley & Foster Partnership is one of only a dozen or so architectural practices in the South of England to become a Corporate Member of the Association for Project Safety (APS), having demonstrated our competence in terms of the Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2015 as a Designer and Principal Designer Practice.

APS is a leading professional institution in the field of construction health and safety risk management. Members are required to maintain their skills, knowledge and experience undertaking CPD programmes each year, which mean APS members are some of the UK’s most trusted, leading experts.

TFP Senior Associate Keith Varnes has recently been granted Incorporated Membership of the APS (IMaPS) following a rigorous process, which together with our existing accreditation as a Safety Schemes in Procurement business allowed us to be admitted as a Corporate Member.
