The NedZink Qualified Installer Scheme
The principal objective of the NedZink Qualified Installer Scheme (NQI) is delivering excellence for zinc roofing and cladding workmanship. Architects, their clients, main contractors and other stakeholders are reassured that installers having the NQI award are competent and capable to effectively deliver the highest levels of craftsmanship expected from the design.
Companies with a strong and proven track record in installing titanium zinc facades and roofs are eligible to be admitted to the NQI Scheme.
Invitees must demonstrate having a minimum of five years’ experience in installing zinc for roofing & facades, should have at least five employees with at least three full time employees with specific experience in zinc roofing.
In addition, companies are invited to provide evidence of previously completed NedZink projects that represented levels of competency, installed to industry expected standards and available for evaluation. Outside of the above a company may be considered to join the NQI scheme in exemplary circumstances based on their project submissions.
The Award of NedZink NQI Membership is a statement of quality that Architects, and Clients can find comfort in. It is a recognition of quality and is given without commercial incentives. Installers do not pay a fee for a stamp of honour; they are simply recognised for performing at the highest levels and with collaboration through communication and ongoing training and evaluation.
