At Teknoplant, we commit to carry out our mandate in a socially responsible manner consistent with our corporate values. We recognize that we must integrate our business values and operations to meet the expectations of our stakeholders. Our statement of commitment incorporates the following four pillars that define how we execute our commitment to CSR:
We provide and strive to maintain a clean, healthy, and safe working environment.
We conduct our business with honesty, integrity and fairness expecting the same from our customers and clients.
We are committed to providing a climate that stimulates and supports employee performance and development.
We invest in our employees and encourage them to be active in their communities. We work with them to promote their personal and professional development allowing individuals and communities to thrive. We build not just a healthy work force but a motivated work force that is engaged.
Teknoplant is committed to help people become good corporate citizens. We focus on understanding, addressing, and reducing potential risks while improving work systems, processes, and frameworks that drive employee safety.
Over the last several years, Construction Owners Association of Alberta (COAA), Construction Industry Institute (CII), Construction Users Round Table (CURT), Project Management Institute (PMI), and Lean Construction Institute (LCI) have introduced various best practices for construction execution. Teknoplant has incorporated a select few recommended methods in their Project and Construction Execution (PACE) system coupled with their innovative methods and years of diverse experience gained in the industry.
Teknoplant shares the know-how on improving productivity in executing capital facilities projects. These include systems to manage indirect costs as well as direct costs in construction execution. The process also involves In Process Verification (IPV) techniques to keep a pulse of the job and take corrective actions on continued basis.
Advanced Work Packaging and Workface Planning methods are the latest techniques being advocated in North America for project execution to improve productivity, quality, and safety for the projects. Teknoplant’s implementation of its flagship product PACE also trains and educates the local craft labor, supervisors, and managers with the overall system of AWP and WFP. Industry specific information and knowledge is available to engineers, project managers, construction superintendents, foreman, and craft labor in implementing the system efficiently.
Besides Teknoplant’s own systems that get deployed, our approach is based on training the trainers and providing exposure to related systems that integrate into our program. We believe in proliferation of knowledge across organizational levels and enterprises all the way in to the front lines where the actual work is being performed, as innovation happens at the front line as well. A well-informed, knowledge-based worker in an organization can add significant value to the end product. We provide built in tools and methods that allow the workers to get involved in the process. When people at the front line can be heard and seen, the lessons learned can be captured and utilized more effectively.
