TR Architectural Services Limited is an architectural design and project management company.  Whether it’s a planning application or a full building renovation, the company’s aim is to simplify the process.  From inception through to completion, the aim is to manage the complexities involved.  The company offers a practical and broad approach with residential and commercial services in architecture, interior design and project management.

The business employs 3 staff and is growing steadily.  Accreditation to ISO 9001:2015 would assist in further efficient growth of the business.  The creation of a revised ISO accredited quality management system would also support efficiencies in the day to day running of the business including:-

Implementing efficient strategies
Quality assurance
Health and safety
Customer satisfaction

Obtaining and maintaining ISO9001:2015 accreditation will also enable the business to secure larger contracts and generate further opportunities for expansion and growth.

The company understands the work required to obtain and maintain accreditation, having worked with older standards for ISO9001 and has standard operating procedures in place to cover the day to day processes within the business.


This RFQ is for management consultancy services to aid TR Architectural Services Limited with preparing and setting up its systems to gain ISO accreditation for 9001:2015.  As TR Architectural Services Limited grows it expects to efficiently demonstrate UKAS accreditation to ISO standards (ISO9001:2015).  Equally it will need recognised procedures in place to manage company expansion.
