Quality Control/Quality Assurance
Construction Quality Control
The primary function of construction quality control (CQC) is to assure that the completed project meets all quality requirements of the contract. To guide the contractor in this task, a CQC plan must be prepared to ensure that the required standards of quality construction are met. In the CQC plan, the contractor defines the procedures by which he will manage and control his own, all subcontractor’s and supplier’s activities so that the completed project complies with contract requirements.
Characteristics of the Contraction Industry
The construction industry has become highly specialized because of the changing market. Increased technology and regulation have resulted in increasing numbers of specialty contractors (such as general building heavy construction, and special trade contractors that make coordination and management more difficult for the general contractor and complicates both CQC and QA.
Whether large or small, specialized or general, success for all contractors is based on their ability to:
- Manage personnel
- Control Costs
- Estimate jobs
- Schedule work
- Manage cash flow
- Manage an effective safety program, and
- Maintain an effective quality control system
