Innovative, sustainable and profitable solutions are some of the reasons why many customers choose Balslev – time and time again. But there are many other good reasons for working with us.

According to our customers and employees, these are some of the special characteristics of Balslev:

  • Substantial specialist knowledge, broad competencies and long, solid experience within many areas
  • Besides fulfilling our specific, agreed assignments, we also share our experience and offer advice when we come across other topics, where we can contribute with ideas or solutions
  • We listen carefully to our customers and their requirements
  • As the client’s extended arm, we provide supplier independent advice and solutions
  • Strong, long-term customer relations and deep insight into the customers’ own systems
  • User-driven solutions, thanks to a close dialogue with users right from the very beginning
  • Excellent co-operation and coordination with other consultants, architects, contractors and suppliers
  • We propose and design sustainable, holistic and future-proof solutions – and are not afraid to engage in discussions with the client to reach the optimum solution
  • Fully capable of developing solutions as well as managing processes
  • It is not about size  – it’s about commitment
  • We work equally committed on both small and large projects.

Balslev’s quality management system has been constantly developed over a number of years and is incorporated in our daily consulting, project engineering and supervisory work.

Our quality management system covers all phases of project engineering and supervisory work, from the start of the project to the end of the contractor’s warranty period.

The objectives of the system

The quality management system’s overall purpose is to ensure that our customers get:

  • The agreed project at the agreed price through continuous and documented quality control throughout the entire project
  • Systematic and uniform project planning and execution
  • A systematic method to manage interfaces with other consultants and parties involved in the project
  • Any eventual changes or deviations in the project are identified at an early stage in order to minimize influence on the time schedule as well as financial consequences.

Balslev’s quality control system comprises a quality management manual, a project management manual – specific to each project – plus internal quality control ­procedures and specifications.

Besides the technical aspects, our focus on safety is paramount. A key indication of a project’s success is when no work related accidents or incidents have occured.

In order to construct and hand over a building, a system or a plant to the client without any work related safety incidents, accidents or near misses, we cannot just rely on luck.  A safe working environment requires both precise planning of the different processes, a generally high safety awareness and constant follow-up at building sites, industrial plants, railways plus other sites and work locations.

It is not enough to possess solid experience in managing safety at building sites. As new procedures and building materials emerge on the market, it is necessary to continually update the individual project manager’s and construction manager’s skills. Balslev ensure this through internal and external courses plus knowledge sharing.

When we manage projects for customers in areas with special safety requirements like e.g. railways, airports and in the oil/gas industry, our employees participate in relevant safety courses. And many employees attend regular, legally required safety courses, e.g. in areas related to power supply.

Several Balslev employees are trained safety co-ordinators, and more will continuously be trained.

Environmental management and quality control

Sustainability and environmental concern are also key elements in Balslev’s quality control system, which describes how we continually document quality control and environmental management throughout the entire project.

Risk management in hazardous areas

We also assist companies working with flammable materials in risk assessment, area classification, documentation and training of employees in order to comply with the requirements of the EU’s ATEX-directive.
