Quality

What's our take on quality? Why is it a big deal for us?
We believe that quality is an essential constituent of Sustainable Development. It helps counteract the overuse of resources; because if we combine buying less with buying better, we sure do take a step towards Sustainable Development.

In what form can quality translate to?
The quality of a product (or a project) can present itself in different forms :

  • the quality of the physical objects that make up the product
  • the quality of the installation (labour)
  • documentation explaining the installation (as-built documents)
  • user training for better use of the product
  • maintainability (can it be maintained easily?)
  • expandability (can additions be made without removing what has been done?)
  • adaptability (can its function be changed easily?)
  • simplicity (is it easy to understand and operate?)
  • replaceability (are the parts easily available?)
  • accessibility (can it be reached easily, for maintenance for example?)

Before we put forward a solution, we consider all these points.
