Longworth is one of the UK’s leading envelope contractors, offering a complete turnkey service of design, installation and project management. Over the years, we’ve become renowned for being an industry innovator. Building on our established reputation for being master craftsmen in the use of traditional metal products such as zinc, copper and stainless steel, since 1999 we have extended our skills and expertise to cover the whole of the external building envelope and all to the highest of specifications.
Longworth Building Services Ltd has continually expanded their facilities in Haydock, St Helens to serve a growing customer base. Currently employing 50 people, the company is experiencing a period of substantial expansion and requires quality systems and procedures to be put in place both to open up new markets and as a platform for growth.
This RFQ is to carry out the accreditation procedure to gain ISO certification for 9001 and 14001. Longworth operates within the highly competitive construction industry. As Longworth grows we will be expected to operate to UKAS accredited ISO standards (ISO9001:2015 and ISO14001:2016 initially with ISO45001 to be added on when it becomes available). Equally, as we grow, we will need recognised procedures in place to cope with the company expansion. Quotations are invited from appropriately qualified accreditation bodies for audit and certification.
We are looking to commence the project immediately and complete within 3-6 months.
This work will be part funded though the European Regional Development Fund. The project falls within the £2,500 – £24,999 bracket and therefore, under current Public Procurement Regulations, there is no formal tender procedure but a detailed written quotation is required.
Quotations will be assessed and scored on the following criteria:
Industry recognition of Accreditation Body (20%)
Delivery Timescale (10%)
Ease of Communication (10%)
