Excellence in our core business

Kwaka LQ is commited to upskilling employees across its full range of disciplines, beyond their core trades. Further, subcontracting is reduced to minimum within our core disciplines.

Doing so offers various advantages:
  • General increase of skills within the company, by encouraging companionship,
  • Good awareness of the working environment, taking care of fellow workers,
  • Good interest in the work and as a consequence, pro-activity and stability
  • A stable, well motivated workforce that believes in its ability to deliver quality products on time.

Interfacing with other disciplines

Kwaka LQ believes that living quarters are highly integrated facilities, where various disciplines are involved and require a high level of interface management and integration. In order to deal with requirements outside our core disciplines, Kwaka LQ has developed strong relationships with specialist subcontractors.



Requirements

Kwaka LQ believes that meeting the Customers’ demands within the regulatory requirements is achieved by a careful choice of technical solutions and a strong selection of products & materials. Clients are involved in suppliers and material selection and advice is provided by Kwaka LQ in order to ensure regulations are adhered to.
Kwaka LQ considers that marine installations and vessels are complex facilities. This requires a high level of integration with a good knowledge of maritime restraints and regulatory requirements.
Kwaka LQ ensures full traceability within the supply chain; material certificates are issued upon completion of works. Kwaka LQ also ensures that subcontractors use classified materials.
Since some materials require specific installation procedures, Kwaka LQ ensures that these are well established, written into procedures/method statements and understood by the workers. Training is organised through accredited agents.
