Quality Management is key to Benchmark's success. Benchmark takes a holistic view of quality management, and our Quality Management System is applicable to all aspects of our work.
In our Quality Plans, we set the standards that we need to achieve to be successful. Our comprehensive quality plans include team composition and qualifications, required training and certifications, a communication plan for all quality related communication, a submittal matrix, project specific standards and codes, inspection and testing information, and a plan on how we work with our clients, subcontractors and vendors.
Benchmark uses an Internal Auditing process to measure compliance with our Quality Management System, our business processes and our Safety Management system to ensure that we keep our commitments. This Internal Auditing process examines all aspects of our work, and allows us to determine any areas for improvement in our QMS and our business processes.
Our Quality Control processes utilize our Quality Plan and our Quality Management System to ensure that we deliver projects that meet our client's rigorous standards.
