For all our project work, Bohannan Huston follows a systematic quality management and assurance process where the goal is to eliminate the cause of failures before a step in the process is undertaken. This is a hallmark of the ISO 9001:2008 quality process, for which BHI pursues compliance on a corporate basis.
Examples of Our Quality Focus and Processes:
Providing independent technical review and constructability reviews of all structural designs and plans.
Implementation of a long-term plan using the TenStep Project Management Methodology.
Development of leading-edge applications using GIS to improve value and quality.
For its classified work, operating and complying with the National Industrial Security Program (NISP, which is administered by the Defense Security Service (DSS), a DoD agency.
For its nuclear gauge program (Construction Group), complying with Radiation Control Bureau regulations administered by the State of New Mexico Environment Department.
