LOCAL construction and engineering firm DORIC was recognised for its innovative management system at the annual Western Australian engineering excellence awards last week. The DORIC Management System provides employees with a user-friendly suite of policies, procedures, and instructions, which the company says has helped it to deliver projects on time, and on budget. DORIC business development manager Keith Somers said the award for ‘management of engineering’ was an independent endorsement of the company’s ability to meet industry benchmarks. The system is currently being used on the $11 million upgrade of the Kelmscott Train Station and Interchange and was used extensively on five other railway interchange stations on the Southern Suburbs Railway. “Our world-class systems allow us to attract and retain quality staff, which provides DORIC with a competitive service delivery edge in our industry. Ongoing training ensures we continue to improve the business,” Mr Somers said. The system is based on the Australian Business Excellence Framework, developed with the objective of describing the principles and practices that create high-performing organisations.
