SBD Certificate achieved!
After graduating from previous business certificates we may add “SBD Third Party Certification” to our list! The certificate, specifically for the British market, was developed by the Assocation of Chief Police Office; they take care of everything concerning the initiatives concerning crime prevention. The risks of crime decreases when the development of a building has reached the minimum norm of a physical security; think of the doors, locks, windows, lights, alarms etc.
SBD (Secured by Design) shows through issuing certificates that a building meets the security level of the insurance companies. Before we received the “Third Party SBD Certificate”, an audit carried out by TGM’s headquarters in Asten and in our production company AGT, Neeroeten in Belgium. At that time TGM and AGT were working on various elements of the project Elephant & Castle MP1. The project is part of the overall masterplan Elephant & Castle South Garden, which has six construction phases in total. Masterplan 1 consists of 11 blocks, which 10 are fitted with aluminium windows, doors and sliding doors, whether or not in accordance with the SBD demands.
By assessing the performance and control of the quality we have been able to show that our products meets the high demands, which is also listed in the ISO9001 certification.
