Our Quality, Health and Safety, and Environmental Culture

Our quality philosophy is derived from a simple goal: ‘To recognise the needs of our customers and to fulfil them’. We adopt global best practice standards in the delivery of our services and maintain an environment of self-evaluation and continuous improvement.

We consider it our duty to design lasting architectural solutions that mitigate their lifecycle impact on environmental resources, as well as protect and enhance the wellbeing of the communities they serve. We actively encourage key project stakeholders to continually improve their own quality, health, safety and environmental performance standards and to share best practice as a means of improving and driving our industry forward, thereby helping them to protect lives, property and reputation. Every employee at SSH forms part of the organisation’s safety team, creating a total safety culture.

Our attention remains on quality execution to deliver the absolute best to our clients and each other by constantly reviewing our metrics.
