Our Business Management System provides consistent procedures and supporting documentation that are applied to each project.  Measurable objectives and targets are set and implemented at every stage of a project.  Through training IBC ensure that all staff and contractors understand our policy and their responsibility to maintain the highest level of quality, safety and environmental performance.  This enables IBC to manage projects effectively and respond to client concerns and project issues in an effective and efficient manner.

Staff input and involvement is essential in identifying and mitigating workplace hazards and risks in order to achieve a safe work environment and a sustainable environment.  All staff and contractors are inducted in the BMS and are familiar with the safe work methods and risk management techniques and implement them on Ireland Brown Constructions projects.

We continuously monitor the BMS to ensure its ongoing improvement and update our operations to achieve excellent time, safety, environmental, quality assurance and cost standards.  This ensures our operating model remains relevant and provides the most effective and appropriate methods of procedure to support the building process.
