To all our clients, fellow project participants, suppliers and other stakeholders.
I wanted to provide you a further brief update to our operations given the recent announcement of increased restrictions to workplace operations due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Since early 2021 the METIER3 office has been operating with full on-site employee attendance. Following the announcement of the lockdown restrictions acrosss Victoria, and now focussed on Greater Melbourne, the workplace is now closed with each employee working remotely with full functionality for all client / project needs.
Where a site inspection is required, we will discuss arrangements but will only participate on site if we are satisfied that the approach proposed is appropriate in the circumstances and safe for all involved, and complies with the current restrictions for on-site attendance.
We look forward to assisting all our clients as they consider how their projects can progress in a "COVID-normal" environment.
Embarking on the implementation of (or adherence to) a Quality Management System (QMS) is a significant investment for any organisation. By its very nature, a QMS that complies with the requirements of an International Standard (ISO9001:2015) requires all employees of that organisation to adhere to certain policies, processes and structures.
METIER3 has long held an ISO certification for our QMS. We believe it adds value to our work product by requiring a set of outcomes to be adhered to and/or achieved which should reduce errors, promote consistency of quality, and enable continual improvement. All attributes that our clients should look for in their architectural consultant!
Congratulations to Quality Manager Jeff C who successfully navigated our recent tri-annual re-certification audit, which for the first time encompassed the introduction of ClickUp process management software as an integral part of our QMS.
