During the first operational year of Rijkskantoor De Knoop, consortium R Creators, consisting of Strukton Worksphere, Facilicom and Ballast Nedam, have been awarded three NEN-ISO certificates! A unique result, which we are very proud of!

Rijkskantoor De Knoop in Utrecht is a public-private partnership (PPP) in which Strukton Worksphere is responsible for the operation during 20 years. The operational phase started in February 2018 after a design and implementation phase of 3 years. A controlled operational organisation is important in which the processes and services are in order. The three certificates show the client, consisting of the Central Government Real Estate Agency and the main user of the building, the Dutch Tax and Customs Administration, and the banks and supervisory bodies that R Creators is in control.

Processes safeguarded with NEN-ISO 9001
The contract stipulated the obligation to get the NEN-ISO 9001, the international standard for quality management systems. ISO 9001 is used to prove that the organisation has safeguarded its processes, can satisfy customer requirements and applicable laws and regulations pertaining to the product and the requirements of the organisation itself.

Environmental management according to ISO 14001
R Creators also added the NEN-ISO 14001. ISO 14001 is the standard that describes the requirements that an environmental management system must fulfil. It is intended to systematically identify and prioritise environmental aspects and then manage and improve them. For example, emissions to soil, water and air as well as noise, radiation and energy consumption. This enables R Creators to focus attention on the environmental aspects they can influence, such as energy consumption during the operational phase.

NEN-ISO 27001 for information security
Finally, R Creators has chosen to obtain NEN-ISO 27001 certification. With this standard, it is possible to structure the security of our information. This is the most popular standard for information security worldwide. R Creators has described its processes for securing information, aimed at ensuring its confidentiality, availability and integrity of information within the organisation. This includes protecting private and/or corporate data, protection against hackers and break-ins.

The team of R Creators is supported in this by Eline van Osch and Robin de Boer. They set up the structure and manuals used to obtain certification and supervised the many internal and external audits by Dekra.
