At Red Dot, we believe that communication, trust and transparency are key to any effective partnership. It’s important to us that our customers enter their partnership with Red Dot knowing that their building will be created to exacting standards, and that they have an effective way to measure our professionalism.
Red Dot Buildings is proud to maintain an IAS AC472 accreditation. As an IAS-accredited manufacturer, Red Dot must pass comprehensive, continuous evaluation by third-party inspection agencies to maintain accreditation. This is just one of the many marks of quality that Red Dot customers can rely on when entrusting us with their projects.
Why IAS Accreditation Matters
Developed specifically for metal building providers, IAS AC472 is determined by the International Accreditation Service and based on Chapter 17 of the International Building Code. This code allows IAS officials and third-party inspectors alike to objectively evaluate structural welding, cold form steel fabrication, and engineering practices.
In order to maintain IAS accreditation, manufacturers are also required to maintain their own comprehensive quality assurance programs and pass periodic inspections against the following factors:
- Welding machine condition and calibration
- Welding practices and procedures
- Engineering practices
- Materials safety and storage
- Internal auditing
- Record keeping
- Vendor quality
- Ability to manufacture buildings according to approved plans and standards
