Corner Star Aluminium Achieves Constructionline Gold
Today Corner Star Aluminium were certified by Constructionline and Achieved their Gold status. The benfits of this certification are outlined in 4 key areas.
- A standardised pre-qualification questionnaire developed by the British Standards Institute, PAS 91 is a common minimum requirement for construction procurement. However, with a Constructionline Gold membership, Corner Star now goes above and beyond PAS 91. With enhanced validation checks by Constructionline that included environmental management, quality management, equal opportunities and diversity, Modern Slavery Act adherance, and anti-bribery and anti-corruption policies, these extra verifications provide security and peace of mind to public and private sector buyers.
- Developed in partnership with Build UK, the Common Assessment Standard goes one step further than PAS 91. A standardised set of questions crafted from existing systems, such as PAS 91, as well as input from clients, suppliers and trade associations, the Common Assessment Standard helps businesses save time and money during the prequalification process.Covering areas such as equal opportunity and diversity, environmental management, Building Information Modelling (BIM), and corporate and social responsibility, the Common Assessment Standard lets buyers know with confidence that Corner Star can satisfy all their requirements.
- Gold membership has become the industry standard. Adopted by some of the largest buyers in the UK, brands such as VINCI, the Wates Group, BAM Construction, Kier and Balfour Beatty demand that suppliers meet this membership level. In fact, for searches that select a specific membership level, over 81% included Gold in the search criteria. This is 64% more than those that selected Silver.
- Constructionline Gold also includes Acclaim’s SSIP accreditation. An umbrella body for assessment schemes, SSIP plays an important role in reducing duplication and cost across the supply chain.Instead of having to hold multiple health and safety schemes, SSIP provides a single platform for managing compliance and health and safety information, cutting what you would normally spend on a range of different health and safety schemes by as much as 40%.
