UNDERSTANDS ISO FROM A CONSTRUCTION PERSPECTIVE
“I run a drylining company in Yorkshire (Brebur) and Andrew helped us to achieve 9001, 14001 & 18001 ISO certification at the start of 2018. Andrew came recommended from the trade body FIS, as someone who understood ISO from a construction perspective having worked within the industry.
Prior to engaging Andrew, the ISO certification had appeared a daunting venture, and we found the language of the standards difficult to understand in relation to our business practices. Andrew stripped all the jargon back and helped to tailor an integrated Management System that was suited to our needs; we were encouraged to make the IMS work for us instead of it becoming a box ticking exercise. Once up and running the IMS took care of all the required ISO standards, while helping our existing processes to become much more robust and efficient, which was an unexpected benefit.
Gaining ISO certification is a huge but worthwhile undertaking for any business. Throughout the process Andrew remained on hand to answer any questions and offer advice in clear concise language, which made the ISO standards relevant to us, and our understanding of them much more meaningful. I cannot imagine that the experience could have gone any better, and I would definitely recommend using Andrew’s expertise to help guide any business through the ISO process, particularly companies operating within the construction sector”.JAMIE BRENTONDIRECTOR – BREBUR
EVERY GOOD CONTRACTOR DESERVES RECOGNITION“Andrew recently guided Bespoke Drywall Limited through the Triple ISO certification process and, with his assistance, we were certificated in June to 9001, 14001 & 18001. Andrew supplied assistance and support throughout the process either by email, phone or visits to our Office. He also chaired our inaugural management review and steered us through that. Andrew has also made other positive contributions to our business which has seen us register on the Growth Accelerator coaching programme. We also intend to engage Andrew to carry out our annual internal audits. Andrew is the consummate professional and we would not hesitate to recommend his services.”MARK GROCOCKMANAGING DIRECTOR, BESPOKE DRYWALL LIMITED

PASSED THE UKAS AUDIT FIRST TIME“I was told by a large customer that I needed to have ISO 17025 to continue working with them. Andrew Foy was recommended to me by a Contractor who had just achieved 9001/14001/18001 with Andrew’s help. Andrew devised a very lean response to ISO 17025 which was vital for me as a small business. We passed the UKAS audit first time and were complemented by them on our very practical management system.”COLIN JONESOWNER AQUA PLUS LTD
ADVICE IS EXCELLENT“Andrew has just steered my company through the process of gaining accreditation to ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001. His experience is drawn from working within the Specialist Contracting sector and having been through the same processes himself. His advice is excellent, easy to understand and impliment but very relevant and I would thoroughly endorse Foy Certification Ltd. Without his gentle cajoling and expert help we would not have achieved the triple certification.”RIK LENNEYMD, ASTEC PROJECTS LTD

WE’D RECOMMEND ANDREW UNRESERVEDLY“Andrew helped us develop an Integrated Management System and obtain certification for the system under ISO9001, 14001 & 18001. Thanks to his input we acheieved this in less than 12 weeks. He was able to de-mystify the process and showed us how to apply the ISO standards to develop our own existing systems. We’d recommend Andrew unreservedly to anyone considering seeking certification for these ISO standards.”PATRICK DEVLINMD, VOSSELER UK
WE ARE DELIGHTED“We initially wanted to add ISO 14001(Environmental Management) to our existing 9001 (Quality Management) Certification. Andrew encouraged us to develop an Integrated Management System (IMS) incorporating 9001, 14001 and OHSAS 18001 (H&S Management) and we set to work. We are delighted to have just received Triple Certification for our IMS; the first in our sector to do so and we have asked Andrew to stay on with us for a while in order to maximise the benefits.”MANNY PATELMD, STRUCTURA UK
SUCCESSFULLY ACHIEVED ALL THREE“When I first took on the task of attempting to gain 9001, 14001 and 18001 all at once, I did not imagine the amount of work I was letting myself in for. And then along came Andrew Foy who steered me professionally with a calming influence to successfully achieve all three within 4 months. Many thanks Andrew.”ALAN R J WILLIAMSMANAGING DIRECTOR, FARR ENGINEERING SERVICES LTD

MIKE LIDBURYCOMMERCIAL MANAGER, PACE CONTRACTS
LOGICAL AND UNDERSTANDABLE“We are a young Company who had the chance of sub-contracting to some major contractors because of previous strong relationships. But we had to achieve ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001 to be part of the supply chain. Andrew convinced us that we could get there and we did! To be honest he made it logical and understandable and even enjoyable. Not only has this assured our customers but it has given us a solid foundation for future growth.”DAVE BOURKEOWNER PERAMETER DEVELOPMENTS
