BUSINESS IN THE COMMUNITY
LSI has won several regional BITC Awards, recognising leadership and innovation in responsible business.
The practice was re-accredited with a Big Tick in 2015, and was shortlisted in the top 6 nationally for the Responsible Small Business of the Year Award.
Now retired, Practice Partner David Thompson was also the recipient of The Prince’s Ambassador Award.
In 2010, LSI Architects was the first business in the East of England to be given the Business in the Community CommunityMark, and was re-accredited with the accolade in 2014.
The award is the highest standard that recognises community investment leadership and excellence and is endorsed by HRH The Prince of Wales.
INVESTORS IN PEOPLE
LSI Architects recognises that the active involvement and development of all staff is an essential component of a successful business. After our 2015 review, the Practice was accredited with the Gold Standard by Investors In People, who stated “The organisation’s strengths are within its open and transparent culture, clearly understood aims and objectives, its commitment to social responsibility and strong values.”
LSI Architects operates an integrated management system based upon ISO 9001:2008 and ISO 14001:2004 which has been assessed and registered by BSI (The British Standards Institution).
The BSI logo is therefore displayed on our correspondence and promotional literature as a sign that we are a ‘quality assured’ business, indicating that all our architectural and masterplanning projects are delivered in ways that reflect our determination to fulfil, if not exceed, all our customers’ expectations in terms of the quality of our service, whilst minimising environmental impact.
