How Can ISO 9001:2008 Certification Benefit Your Company?

When you see that a company is certified as conforming to the ISO 9001:2008 Standards, you can count on this: The company’s production processes meet established international standards for quality. That may help you, as a customer, satisfy your legal or contractual requirements and ensures you’re working with an organization that places a high priority on quality.

To achieve certification of conformity to the ISO 9001:2008 Standards companies must demonstrate that they can meet regulatory requirements and apply a Quality Management System effectively. At TP Mechanical, we believe in reducing costs, increasing customer satisfaction – all of which are part of our Quality Management System.

TP Mechanical: ISO 9001:2008

TP Mechanical has a registered ISO 9001:2008 certification of conformity for our Quality Management System. We earned our registration for “prefabrication of components for the purpose of fast-track construction in the piping and mechanical plumbing fields.”

As a mechanical contractor specializing in large commercial construction projects, TP Mechanical utilizes prefabrication to reduce construction costs and shorten schedules while decreasing waste and scrap. By doing more work in the shop – in a controlled, dedicated facility – we also enhance safety d achieve higher quality for the projects we complete on the job site.

Benefits of ISO 9001:2008

TP Mechanical’s conformity to the ISO 9001:2008 Standards allows us to support your organization by delivering the results you want and expect. Our Quality Management System benefits your company by:

  • Improving quality and service
  • Reducing the amount of on-site work
  • Providing on-time delivery
  • Fostering a get it right the first time attitude
  • Reducing mistakes, change orders and defects

TP MECHANICAL REDUCES JOB SITE WASTE WITH PREFABRICATION

The TP Mechanical Fabrication team is helping our customers gain significant benefits for their construction projects through prefabrication. With the aid of our innovative shop fabrication processes, we are able to substantially reduce job site waste.

It’s common to see the amount of unused material and scrap increase throughout a project during traditional construction and on-site fabrication. By moving as much of the construction process indoors into our 45,000 square-foot, ISO-certified fabrication facility, we remove a lot of that waste from the actual job site.

CADWith the aid of highly trained employees at each assembly station and our investment in automated equipment, we can ensure consistency and quality in every cut and weld. Additionally, with state-of-the-art BIM and CAD technologies, 2D and 3D highly customized designs are used to optimize waste reduction.

With these congruent factors, along with our fabrication process occurring in a controlled manufacturing environment, TP Mechanical produces higher quality units with fewer rejected assemblies while ensuring productivity is maximized and material waste is kept at a minimum.

At TP Mechanical, our recycling programs are designed to keep as much of the packaging and scrap raw material out of the landfill as possible – reusing what we can and properly recycling what we can’t.

According to a recent SmartMarket report released by McGraw-Hill Construction, more than 800 architecture, engineering and contracting professionals were surveyed and 77% said that construction site waste is decreased by utilizing new prefabrication construction techniques. More than 60% of the same professionals reported that prefabrication shortened project schedules and reduced budgets.

“These reported productivity benefits of prefabrication and modularization are particularly exciting in today’s economy, given the benefits of creating superior buildings while saving cost, time and waste,” said Harvey Bernstein, Vice President of Industry Insights and Alliances at McGraw-Hill Construction.

For project leaders looking to save cost, improve their schedule and reduce the impact to the environment, fabrication is a critical component to consider in any construction process, and TP Mechanical has invested in the resources and expertise to provide superior fabrication services for our customers.

Why is this important?

At TP Mechanical, we’ve always strive to do things the right way. Now, a third-party organization has reviewed our processes and put their stamp of approval on them. They agree that we have what it takes to make quality fabricated products for mechanical piping, plumbing and fire protection.

The fabrication shop, a 45,000-square-foot facility, is staffed by skilled tradesmen relying on state-of-the-art modeling technologies to produce custom fabricated mechanical parts. The shop fabricates a variety of materials used in HVAC, plumbing and fire protection construction. The products include steel, cast iron, CPVC, PVC and copper pipe assemblies, pipe hangers and supports, equipment and pump skids and carrier groups.

What is ISO?

The ISO 9001 system integrates a company’s internal processes to facilitate a coordinated approach for managing the business. Certified companies have implemented a system to identify, measure, control and improve the core business processes, ultimately leading to improved business performance.

Why fabrication?

Fabrication allows us to serve our customers more effectively:

  • Shorten construction schedules
  • Enhance quality
  • Reduce materials cost
  • Decrease waste and scrap

TP Mechanical’s unique fabrication capabilities streamline the construction process by accelerating production and installation time while shortening construction timelines. It can also eliminate delays due to inclement weather, prevent scheduling conflicts, reduce material waste and improve safety of workers at the job site. Fabrication can also ensure pricing accuracy, enhance quality and consistency and allow for truly custom solutions for every project challenge.

Congratulations to everyone at TP Mechanical who has contributed to this achievement, especially Dan Holland, Rick Absher and Jef Schachleiter for their efforts in pursuing the certification. We’re excited to be able to deliver ISO-registered quality to our customers.
