Come along to Healthcare Estates and hear about our developments and investments we've made over…
We are delighted to announce that we have now achieved the status of Constructionline Certified Gold Member.
Constructionline is the UK’s largest register of contractors, consultants and material suppliers for the construction industry. 24,000 suppliers are already registered with Constructionline and It is used by over 10,000 key decision makers from over 3,800 buying organisations to select quality suppliers. Using Constructionline as a central source, contractors can streamline their procurement processes and reduce risk.
One of the key advantages of using Constructionline is that it provides a rigorous checking process, which ensures that the companies employed are competent and qualified, so that standards are uncompromised. This is because Constructionline checks the important information such as insurance documentation, accreditations, financial and health and safety data on behalf of buyers, thus saving time and money. The Constructionline service, which is aligned to PAS 91, the standardised pre-qualification questionnaire developed by BSI, gathers, assesses and validates supplier information. It will give contractors daily updates on their supply chain, providing their businesses with a view on their subcontractor partners’ information without the need for this to be managed by their firms’ procurement teams.
Constructionline Gold Membership (Level 3)
The new Gold (level 3) membership increases the level of scrutiny and risk management by extending the mandatory PQQ and including a mandatory Health and Safety Accreditation. The enhanced PQQ question set now includes verification of Environmental Management, Quality Management, Equalities and Diversity, and extended Health and Safety. It ensures buyers keep up with legislation in areas such as Modern Slavery, Anti-Bribery and Corruption, and Equal Opportunities, giving peace of mind across all these areas of governance.
For Gold members of Constructionline, the extended verified PQQ question set goes beyond the data collected by PAS 91, to include environmental management, quality management, equalities and diversity. This means that architects, specifiers and contractors can see that we already meet the stringent guidelines for health and safety, management procedures and quality, laid down by the prequalification process. It also means the buyers can see that our organisation has been subjected to increased scrutiny around quality, governance and risk management.
Constructionline in the hospital/healthcare sector
The Constructionline service is widely recognised and respected throughout the industry by contractors and a wide range of clients from the public sector. In our specialist health and hospital sector for example, NHS London Procurement Partnership has adopted Constructionline for construction-related contractors, consultants and materials suppliers. They believe this will save the industry millions of pounds by cutting the amount of duplication in the pre-qualification process.
