ISO 14001

The problem

Prior to appointing Statius, the company had undertaken an ISO 14001 environment management system (EMS) assessment resulting in a significant number of major non-conformance's.

The client 

tp bennett is a major architectural and design practice with a reputation for delivering successful projects. They are recognized for innovative work that meets their clients' aspirations. From their studios in Bankside, Central London's new cultural heart, the partnership (incorporating the specialist divisions tp bennett architects, bennett interior design (BiD), bennett urban planning, bennett sef, bennett consulting and bennett sustainable architecture), provides a comprehensive range of services both within its individual elements and as a collective whole.

The sustainable architecture division is indicative of the Company’s forward thinking and its commitment to not only its own environmental performance but also to how it can influence the decisions of its clients.

The solution

Statius were selected from a number of consultants to review tp bennett’s existing EMS and QMS and propose a workable plan to assist the practice achieve formal registration to the ISO14001 standard.

Statius were chosen because of their previous work with architects and their track record of implementing successfully accredited EMS in a range of professional construction-based organisations.

Following a comprehensive review of existing documentation and discussions with key tp bennett staff, Statius developed a comprehensive proposal involving an integrated environmental system to complement the existing office management system already in place. tp bennett were so satisfied with the work carried out that they have appointed Statius Management Services for the implementation phase of the project.

The outcome 

“Statius presented us with a workable, common sense proposal to achieve our environmental objectives whilst utilising systems we already have in place” - J Sharpe, tp bennett.

  • An integrated management system approach which fits the company style and ethos.
  • Formal recognition for tp bennett’s environmental commitment, giving them a competitive edge in sustainable architecture.
  • Development of a partnership between tp bennett and Statius to produce an effective, practical management system.
  • The Company has at its disposal a very simple to understand and unambiguous environmental system that reflects what the Company sees as its ‘best practice’.

Our Clients Love Us


The Easy Choice

“From the initial interview stage, through to a final selection process, it became an easy choice with Statius management being appointed as consultants for SERAPID ISO certification. Clint was integral to us achieving certification and made the whole process relaxed with a very professional approach!”

Simply ISO9001

“Statius took time to understand us, then they made ISO9001 very simple whereas other consultants had made it impossibly complicated”

Mindset management

“This (assignment) has confirmed some things I knew, and that was useful; some things I didn’t and that too was useful. However, most importantly, I guess we all felt a bit uncomfortable at times but now we have a real and robust improvement plan to go forward with.”

Mindset management

“The (performance improvement) work you have undertaken has providing a real opportunity for us to break out of our mindset… I’m just afraid it will stop!”

Streamline and simplify

“I have to say from a personal viewpoint, since you came on board you have helped streamline and simplify our systems brilliantly, and continue to do so, which makes my job much more straight forward, and I thank you very much for all your efforts...”

Securing new business

“Without the help of Statius and the systems and processes developed we would not have secured £27m of framework agreements and term contracts.”

Changing thinking

“Statius challenged and changed our thinking, without them we would never have changed the business model and we’d be far less prepared for sale.”

Integrated management

“Statius’s hands on approach and genuine interest in the development of the Integrated Management System meant that we successfully achieved ISO 14001 certification (at the first attempt) and we shall rely on their future support as we develop our systems.”
