Corporate Social Responsibility
At Corniche we are committed to operating with integrity, in line with industry legislation and in accordance with our company values, all of which are underpinned by Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR). Here’s an outline of our key policies.
Our Vision is to develop and maintain a relationship with our clients based on a culture of mutual trust, transparency, understanding and integrity. We will strive to deliver a consistently high level of service, irrespective of value or size of client or contract.
Our Purpose is to meet and exceed our clients’ expectations in terms of value, quality, and standards, and to achieve growth through client retention, repeat business and client acquisition. The key to achieving this goal is our quest for continuous improvement and our ability to maintain a competent, qualified workforce and supply chain.
Quality Management Statement
Corniche Construction Ltd is committed to the continual improvement of processes, systems, and production. We are also committed to the development of our staff by creating an environment in which each employee is motivated towards the goals of meeting or exceeding our clients' expectations.
We have developed and implemented our own management system which benchmarks our performance, that of employees and of the supply chain, to ensure that we match and better the current Best Practice Standards in the industry. In addition, we have developed a system based on competencies for our employees to maintain and develop their knowledge and skills.
By continually improving our administration and construction management processes, we aim to meet or improve, where appropriate, the requirements of the project specification and adhere to construction programmes and budgets. Our objective will be achieved by employee and supply chain involvement, communication at all levels and our ability to adapt and generate trust and credibility.
Our quest for complete customer satisfaction informs all our decisions and actions.
Corniche Construction Limited is committed to building an organisation that makes full use of the talents, skills, experience, and different cultural perspectives available in a multi-ethnic and diverse society. We aim to operate a business where people feel they are respected and valued and can achieve their potential regardless of race, colour, nationality, national or ethnic origins, sexual orientation, disability or age.
Corniche Construction Limited will follow recommendations made in both the Statutory Codes of Practice of the Commission for Racial Equality and Equal Opportunities Commission and adhere to the Disability Rights Commission Code of Practices in Employment and Occupation in all their employment policies, procedures, and practices. We have signed up to and endorse the CIOB EDI Charter.
Health and Safety
Corniche Construction Limited is committed to performing its duties under section 2(3) of the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 and fulfilling our obligations to both employees and the public. It is our aim to achieve a working environment which is free of work-related accidents and ill-health and to this end we pursue continuing improvements from year to year.
Anna Bataille, our in-house Health and Safety Manager, provides competent advice as required under Management of Health and Safety Regulations, reviewing our policy, and implementing frequent updates in line with legislation changes.
We are a CHAS accredited contractor. CHAS is a non-commercial scheme for health and safety pre-qualification in the UK to a nationally recognised and accepted threshold standard. The scheme fully reflects the stage one requirements of assessing competence under CDM 2015.
We are also members of CHSG and undergo an annual review of our policy arrangements.
We recognise that our operations can affect the local, regional, and global environment and to help mitigate this, ensure that all employees are trained in our Environmental Management System and given guidance on its implementation.
We strive to deliver continuous improvements in environmental performance and the prevention of pollution.
Health and Safety is of paramount importance to us, and rigorous steps are taken to ensure the welfare of all, which is overseen by our dedicated Health and Safety Manager, Anna Bataille.
Our operatives all possess enhanced DBS checks and any work that is required in the vicinity of children, young people, the elderly and vulnerable is carefully managed.
Corniche Construction Ltd recognises and welcomes the Modern Slavery Act 2015. Whilst it requires large organisations to disclose publicly the steps they are taking to prevent modern slavery within their business and supply chains, we recognise that we too, must embrace the Act and take a zero-tolerance approach to exploitation.
We are committed to improving our practices by acting ethically and with integrity to ensure that modern slavery and human trafficking do not exist anywhere within our organisation or is associated with the business in any way.
Corniche Construction Ltd have signed up to the RICS Conflict Avoidance Pledge which states that:
‘We believe in collaborative working and the use of early intervention techniques throughout the supply chain, to try to resolve differences of opinion before they escalate into disputes.
We recognise the importance of embedding conflict avoidance mechanisms into projects with the aim of identifying, controlling, and managing potential conflict, whilst preventing the need for formal, adversarial dispute resolution procedures.
We commit our resources to embedding these into our projects.
We commit to working proactively to avoid conflict and to facilitate early resolution of potential disputes.
We commit to developing our capability in the early identification of potential disputes and in the use of conflict avoidance measures.
We will promote the value of collaborative working to prevent issues developing into disputes.
We commit to work with our industry partners to identify, promote and utilise conflict avoidance mechanisms.’
