Primrose have achieved ISO9001:2015 certification following a rigorous assessment of their quality management systems.
The International Organization for Standardization sets out the criteria for a quality management system called ISO9001. This global standard is based on several quality management principles including a strong customer focus, the motivation and performance of management, organisational processes and continual improvement.
Fraser Wright, Buyer, who led the assessment and certification process said “We are delighted achieve certification which recognises Primrose’s commitment to ensuring that customers get a consistent, good quality service. I believe application of the standard will help us meet the needs of customers and project stakeholders while also ensuring we meet statutory and regulatory requirements”
In light of the recent announcement regarding the collapse of Carillion, the industry has come together to help the 1400 displaced apprentices.
Primrose were one of the first to contact the Construction Industry Training Board (CITB) to offer assistance. Founder and MD, Sean, has been active as a Construction Ambassador for the CITB for several years, so understood the predicament former Carillion apprentices would face:
“Developing skills and offering opportunities for experiential learning is one of the ways Primrose help people starting out in construction. Not only does this help to the organization meet its contractual obligations in the present, but also nurtures the construction leaders of tomorrow.”
Clients and colleagues may already know Danny Flint as one of Primrose’s dedicated site managers…but no more!
Danny has been promoted to the role of Contracts Manager as part of Primrose’s wider programme for modest expansion planned in the next few months. Having chalked-up eight years of loyal and valued service at the company, Danny has certainly earned his stripes!
“We are very pleased to announce Danny’s promotion and proud to be supporting his continued professional development” Sean Carter – founder and Director.
Co-founder Sean, in his capacity as Construction Ambassador for the Construction Industry Training Board, volunteered his time today to support local apprentices.
The main aim of a Construction Ambassador is to help build a positive image of the construction industry through visiting schools, colleges and higher education institutions to promote the construction industry as an attractive career option. Today’s task was to conduct mock-interviews with second and third year apprentices at Harrow College.
“It’s rewarding to be able to help young people avoid the common pitfalls in interview situations. It was also rewarding to get out of this office for the day!”
Primrose founder, Sean, has been recognised as a Construction Ambassador by CITB-Construction Skills.
After being approached by the CITB earlier this year, Sean was delighted to take on the role which seeks to encourage young people into the industry.
The main aim of a Construction Ambassador is to help build a positive image of the construction industry through visiting schools, colleges and higher education institutions to promote the construction industry as an attractive career option.
“I want to inspire young people and help them see the wide range of opportunities that the construction industry offers. Our industry represents 8% of GDP and employes 2.6 million people. In my view, the opportunities within the sector are boundless!” – Sean Carter.
In May 2004 Sean and Steve took a leap of faith that at the time seemed so risky. Today is ten years to the day since Primrose Building Contracts was incorporated as a limited company.
Over the past ten years the company has sought to provide a high quality, well organised and excellent value service. This was very much the intention of the founders, having been involved with other companies who’s offering was just not up to scratch.
“I am proud today of the dedication and passion of the people who have contributed to, and who continue to buttress Primrose’s success” – Sean Carter, Co-founder
