Pursuit of Quality
The pursuit of quality has been the driving force central to SPA’s work. Our missionis to achieve, for each project, the best possible solution, safe, durable, economical and aesthetic, with minimal subsequent maintenance through the application of our experience, skills and ingenuity and based on a complete understanding of the Client’s requirements, both explicit and silent. This applies starting with overall concepts through every stage of work to the thoroughness of final drawings. The aim is that the Client should feel satisfied with every aspect of SPA’s service, but in particular appreciate the quality of the finished product both immediately and throughout its subsequent life.
The company has four design associates and each project is assigned to one of the associates and reviewed by another. The company works on a profit-sharing basis, at all levels, from peon to senior associate. Senior Associates hold shares in the company which are bought back on retirement. Apart from this relatively small shareholding the company is a wholly owned subsidiary of SPA Education Foundation, a non-profit company that distributes the dividends it earns to various NGOs working on primary education and health in difficult areas around the country.
