MTX Joins Achilles Building Confidence

AchillesMTX Contracts Ltd are pleased to say that we have joined with some of the biggest companies in the construction sector by joining Achilles Building Confidence – the UK construction industry accreditation and risk management scheme.

We will now be able to share, via an online platform, its performance in key business areas, such as health and safety, environment, quality and compliance.

In total, 17 national and international construction companies have selected Achilles BuildingConfidence as their preferred standard for supplier pre-qualification, registration and accreditation. They use a standardised pre-qualification questionnaire to streamline the procurement process and manage risk consistently among 1,500 suppliers. Achilles then carries out desktop and physical audits of the information.

We will now be demonstrating a clear commitment to health and safety, environment, quality and compliance and will put ourselves in the best possible position to secure a pipeline of work opportunities from major construction buyers.

Achilles BuildingConfidence is run by a steering group of construction buyers. In the last three years, members have seen a 52% reduction in non compliances in issues linked to ethics, a 42% fall in non-compliance on health and safety, a 50% drop in non-compliance around risk assessment and a three-fold increase in demand for audits.
