Specialist Subcontractor Management

We maintain our own database of competent subcontractors, all of which have satisfied a rigorous audit process. This includes in-depth checks of health and safety, quality and environmental arrangements, as well as how subcontractors deal with CDM specific requirements (e.g. design input or communication, coordination and cooperation).

This is backed up with an interview process held by a director or senior manager within JCA, so that the company’s approach can be understood and the JCA methodology explained to contractors. Once a contractor is approved on to JCA’s database their performance is continually assessed by our contract managers, technical services supervisors and HSQE managers, as part of their site audits. Subcontractors are expected to maintain the standard of information they provide to JCA and any changes, deficiencies or expired information is followed up with the company in question. Through this process, we believe that the standard of specialist subcontract work is maintained at the highest possible level.
