Al Shirawi Infrastructure Construction wins ISO certification

ABU DHABI, July 15, 2017

UAE-based Al Shirawi Infrastructure Construction said it has achieved ISO 9001:2015 certification thus becoming the first infrastructure construction company certified by British Standards Institution (BSI) in the region against the 2015 edition of the quality management standard.

A specialist in utility infrastructure development and accompanying underground works, Al Shirawi said it caters to power distribution, water conveyance and mechanical and telecommunication network.

The ISO certification was completed over a period of five months and involved over 24 sessions to define critical processes, four days of internal audit and four sessions of management review meeting.

In addition to this, checks were conducted by three internal auditors and BSI performed a two-stage stage audit to ensure compliance.    

To mark this milestone, a special ceremony was held at Al Shirawi Infrastructure Construction offices in Dubai Silicon Oasis in the presence of CEO Navin Valrani and general manager Walid Aaraj and senior BSI officials including Ahmad Al Khatib, the general manager for assurance (Middle East & Africa), Mathew John, the business development manager (MEA).

The event was also attended by other eminent members of the Al Shirawi fraternity, including Krishna Kumar, the general manager for quality and business excellence, who led the charge for the certification.

Lauding the Al Shirawi team for their hard work in getting the ISO, Al Khatib said: "At BSI, we are committed to helping an organisation adopt excellent businesses practices. This certificate is proof that Al Shirawi Infrastructure Construction is a customer-oriented company and has in place well-defined processes to protect their interests."

Valrani said across Al Shirawi group’s businesses, customer satisfaction is an important management goal.

"We subscribe to ISO having learned from experience that a high-level internal structure and system to check compliance with customer requirements is critical to ensuring client satisfaction. The group will continue to provide the technical and financial resources to support Al Shirawi Infrastructure to reach new heights," he added.

Al Shirawi Infrastructure Construction has been approved by Road Transport Authority of Dubai (RTA), Dubai Electricity & Water Authority (Dewa-ED), and Emirates Integrated Telecommunications Co. (Du).

Addressing the gathering, Aaraj said: "It has been an exciting learning period for all of us. We have come together and created a company that will now serve the best interest of contractors and clients. The certification is truly a team achievement."

In a relatively short period of time, Al Shirawi Infrastructure has executed a number of projects for the UAE’s telecom sector and water sector, including those for DEWA, Dubai Municipality and Du to name a few, he added.-TradeArabia News Service
