Quality

Our Motto Is Think Quality

ATL’s Management is committed to providing quality services and has invested substantial time and capital in empowering an active Quality Team. Through this team, corporate-wide quality systems are implemented in a consistent manner, and internal and external issues are addressed in a proactive and timely fashion. ATL’s comprehensive approach includes development, integration, quality control, audit activities (i.e., quality assurance), and execution of required corrective action.

As part of our business philosophy, ATL’s managers and technical staff interact with the Corporate Quality staff members on a regular basis and have been extensively trained in our quality systems management (QSM). We maintain internal tracking systems to measure on-time performance in respect to reports and similar deliverables, and commit resources to minimize deviations in project reporting requirements. Additionally, client confidence in the technical competency of our deliverables is achieved through oversight and peer review by our experienced engineers, scientists, and other technical staff, as applicable.

Additionally, a primary goal within QSM is to consistently examine project performance, which involves the analysis and review of the efficiency, management, performance, and client satisfaction of services provided on a project. This important practice encompasses all stages of the project cycle that ATL staff use as a means of improving services, project management, and project performance.

ATL also utilizes external mechanisms to add to our quality systems management process. This includes membership in professional associations and societies, such as the ASCE, NYSSPE, NICET, AWS, NETTCP, ACIL, ASNT, and licensing, certification, and advanced training by other professional organizations.
