At a recent gala event held at the Rydges Hotel in Brisbane, SAI Global announced Heggies as the joint winner of the 2009 National Quality Assurance Excellence Award for companies with 50 to 500 staff. Managing Director, Richard Heggie said that the company was delighted to receive such high recognition, which demonstrates the robustness and maturity of its Quality Assurance system, processes and procedures.
Heggies consultants provide specialist engineering and scientific solutions for improving and sustaining the environment. The company has been operating since 1978 and its paper-less ISO9001 QA System was first accredited by SAI Global in 1990. The system is closely integrated with all facets of the business. With 130 staff members and nine offices across Australia and Southeast Asia, Heggies chose to develop a fast, reliable and accessible system, using its own Intranet as the document/records management and process delivery vehicle.
Over the last 30 years, Heggies specialist environmental services have expanded to embrace acoustics, vibration, air quality, noise and vibration control, blast design and monitoring, modal analysis, structural dynamics, wind engineering, solar and energy/ESD studies. Heggies undertakes projects in all states of Australia, as well as in New Zealand, South East Asia and the Middle East. In recent times, general environmental assessments, land contamination, water quality, hazardous materials and OHS/Occupational Hygiene have been added to its service range.
