The principal aim of the "Hawkins Blueprint "is to provide a consistent high quality product.
This means the product must meet or exceed the client’s specification and be delivered or produced on time. It must comply with all the regulatory authorities, particularly the Resource Management Act and Building Act, and be constructed using the Building Act’s specified standards of workmanship. Projects must also comply with the Health and Safety in Employment Act.
The company blueprint comprises a set of standards covering administration; health safety & environment; project management; project quality control and tendering to ensure that the company’s objectives are met. Hawkins has developed procedures in each of these standards, which will assist all personnel throughout Hawkins to understand what is required of them and how their contribution and commitment results in an efficient and profitable organisation capable of delivering the desired product to the client.
The company has adopted key project goals in each area of quality, safety, time and cost that are required to be achieved to ensure a successful project, and also five guiding principles to reflect the manner in which the company desires to do business. The project goals are also used as the targets for continual improvement of staff performance. The "Hawkins Blueprint "is for the benefit of all people associated with Hawkins Construction Limited. To achieve this efficiency the commitment and support of all employees is required.
The "Hawkins Blueprint "has been certified by Telarc New Zealand as conforming to the International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO) model for Quality Systems AS/NZS ISO 9001:2008.
We understand the importance of the built environment to New Zealanders and its role in fostering a positive society. We place great importance on ensuring our projects leave a legacy of craftsmanship and endurance that not only enhances our local communities and cities but also provides long-term quality assets for our clients.
Our goal at Hawkins is to help our clients realise the sustainability objectives of their building projects through continual investment, improving skills and knowledge related to improved construction techniques, stakeholder management and building products. As such, we are particularly proud of our recent track record in the delivery of green buildings employing the New Zealand Green Building Council GreenStar rating system.
A large number of our buildings have been given significant recognition not only for the quality of their design but also for the construction methods employed in minimising waste from our sites and the sourcing of the best materials. Our commitment to developing even better green processes on our projects is unwavering and we stand by our record in this area with pride.
