Badge of honour

PACIFIC have successfully transitioned from the Chartered Institute of Building’s Chartered Building Company scheme to its new updated format.

This badge of honour verifies that the business is professionally managed and operates to the highest standards.

Chartered Building Company status – which Pacific has been proud to demonstrate from the company’s beginnings – informs clients and the wider industry that the organisation is committed to competence and professionalism and operates to high business and ethical codes.

The CIOB relaunched its Chartered Building Company and Chartered Building Consultancy schemes towards the end of 2015, making the assessment criteria more robust.

Just under 600 businesses, from SMEs to international concerns, have joined the scheme since its inception, and the CIOB hope that the relaunch will boost membership by at least 10 per cent.

Under the revised criteria, new applicants and existing members need to have been trading for a minimum of two years and commit to becoming a CIOB training partner.

Health and safety, quality management, environmental, equal opportunities and corporate social responsibility policies must all be in place, and references from clients and supply chain partners must also be available.

The company must also be able to demonstrate that they:

  • Are committed to developing a fully qualified workforce
  • Have a significant number of directors that are already Chartered, either with CIOB or other built environment organisations

Organisations chartered with the CIOB are independently assessed and regularly audited.

The CBC logo has also been revamped to make the CIOB’s own logo more prominent, and members will be given guidance on branding and merchandising displaying the new look, which boosts the legend: “Professionalism and Integrity in Construction.”
