    Hoover Building

    Tesco and EIC bring life to the stunning Hoover Building

    The Hoover Building is one of the UK’s finest examples of Art Deco architecture. It has been a landmark on the outskirts of London since its construction in 1932. Not only is the site Grade II listed, it is also ‘of special historic interest’.

    Through this project, Tesco and EIC injected life back into a decaying building, working to deliver a new Tesco food store, a petrol filling station, two new customer car parks (above and below ground), a nursery and two office blocks. This project was delivered under the watchful eye of English Heritage. This meant that any refurbishment work carried out by Tesco and EIC was subject to scrutiny from many government agencies.

    EIC completes two new office block developments in Weybridge

    The project centred on the creation of two new office blocks on the prestigious race track at Brooklands estate in Surrey. Once the buildings were completed, new businesses would bring more jobs to the local area.

    In accordance with government legislation, the estate had to meet the energy saving requirements set by BREEAM. As a design-build project, EIC worked with the client, architects and builders to deliver two first-class office buildings.

    Alexander Stadium

    EIC helps create a brand new sports stadium in Birmingham

    A new 5,000 seat stadium was pre-designed and built at Alexander Stadium, Birmingham.  The new arena contained a concessions area, offices and gymnasium.  To ensure a sustainable development, an environmental strategy was created which incorporated the conservation of fuel and power and the monitoring of energy performance.  This, together with low carbon choices and offsets, generated a low carbon footprint for the building with no reduction in the high quality services for the client.

    The EIC team worked closely with Thomas Vale's Engineering Consultants Van Zyl & de Villiers (VZDV) to maximise the potential for energy efficiency and sustainability.

EIC Quality Policy Statement

Date: 15/03/2011

The ultimate aim of the EIC Quality Management System is to ensure that our customers’ expectations for quality and service are achieved and, wherever possible, exceeded, resulting in improved levels of customer satisfaction and an enhanced reputation for the company.

To support this aim EIC Top Management is committed to the implementation of a comprehensive Quality Management System which incorporates the control of all relevant company processes from the receipt of an enquiry through to project completion and beyond.

The System has been developed to comply with the requirements of the BS EN ISO 9001:2000 Quality Management System Standard and to be as practical as possible so as to facilitate its implementation. All EIC offices employ the same procedures and supporting documentation and standard forms.

Overall administration of the Quality Management System is undertaken from our Head Office which also provides centralised control of human resources, supplier / sub contractor evaluation, asset management, company vehicles and the company’s intranet based management systems. Control of operational matters and operational documentation is the responsibility of nominated Project Managers who are supported in the field by trained and competent Site Supervisors and Service Engineers.

The Quality manual and procedural documentation defining the requirements of the Quality Management System is made available to all personnel responsible for its implementation either by electronic means or as physical media and is subject to constant review to ensure its continued practicality and compliance with the Standard.

The Top Management of EIC ensures that objectives for improvement are set and progress towards their achievement measured. Also, an annual review of the information generated by the Quality Management System appertaining to the performance of EIC is undertaken to ensure that the System is sufficiently resourced and supported to enable the company’s aim of a continuous improvement in the System and in company performance standards to be achieved.
