The organisation now has UKAS ‘Flexible Scope’ accreditation for geotechnical and materials testing throughout the UK. This permits BAM Ritchies to establish and run UKAS accredited laboratories anywhere in the UK carrying out tests within the bounds of the “Flexible Scope” using their comprehensive and robust management processes and principles, which are audited and approved.
These facilities are currently being provided at three sites in Cumbria (external), Reading and Scotland (internal) alongside our permanent laboratory at Kilsyth, near. Glasgow.
Quality and Laboratory Manager, Margo Marsh commented ‘It is clear that there is a demand both internally and externally for materials and geotechnical laboratories under our new flexible scope UKAS accreditation’ adding ‘BAM Ritchies is pleased to meet this demand from main contractors so assisting them in complying with client’s testing requirements on their projects’.
