Strategic team building, creating long-term relationships

Quality PanGIS adheres to all policies and best practices pertinent to utility and public works projects and performs all services in conformance with client requirements and expectations. Quality control policies are documented so that the understanding of the project can be shared with everyone involved. PanGIS has a quality control plan that identifies the individuals responsible for the specific procedures used to ensure delivery of a quality product.

Quality is obtained by establishing standards at the beginning of every type of work and then reviewing the work frequently to ensure the quality level is maintained. Ultimately, implementation of quality relies upon the commitment and motivation of the staff running the project.

We conduct preconstruction planning with all project staff outlining expectations and responsibilities and constantly monitor work quality, making adjustments as needed. Our primary objective is to produce a quality product that adheres to all regulatory standards.
