Southern Green

Southern Green was founded by Simon Green and Ros Southern in 1998. A firm of Chartered Landscape Architects employing 12 people, they specialise in urban design, historic landscapes, environmental assessment and landscape management.

In line with commercial pressures and legal requirements the firm decided there was a need to manage and control Health and Safety, Quality and Environmental issues in a coherent and transparent way.

SEQM designed and implemented an Integrated Management system (ISO 9001, 14001 and OHSAS 18001) aimed at keeping pollution down, preventing accidents and providing high quality products and services to the firm's clients.

#  Not only was SEQM capable of convincing us of their competence, they also supported us in gaining some 60% matched funding for the project. SEQM was always professional and friendly in their approach, explaining the management and legal aspects in laymen's terms so that we were able to understand the terminologies and requirements.

They helped us greatly in identifying occupational health and safety risks, environmental aspects and quality issues. We are now in a much better position not only to control such issues but also to provide evidence to our clients that we manage them effectively.

Towards the end of the project SEQM presented a tailored workshop to all our members of staff which explained the Management System. We were all pleased to see how entertaining and interesting management systems can actually be!

The whole company is now behind the management system and we have already benefited greatly from the work that SEQM has done for us. We now feel in a stronger position to compete for larger scale projects.I cannot think of a more friendly, helpful and professional Management Consultant to work with - in fact we rather miss working with them!  #
