How Important Is Quality Assurance to My Construction Project?

May 9, 2019 2:56:00 PM / by Mike Deihl



When selecting the construction manager (CM) to lead your project, keep in mind that quality assurance – a program for the systematic monitoring and evaluation of the various aspects of a project to ensure the standards of quality are being met– is essential.

Quality assurance is not a one-time meeting or scheduled inspection, it is an on-going process that lasts throughout the design and construction process. Quality assurance should include:

  • Pre-construction review of project documents.
  • Management of pre-installation meetings to review the scope of work, identify participants and plan activities to ensure the parameters of quality are being met for each phase of work.
  • Collaboration with manufacturer’s installation instructions and their representatives to understand and review proper installation procedures.
  • Regular quality assurance inspections and documentation through quality observation reports.
  • Continual monitoring of work in progress to ensure that it meets the design intent, specifications, manufacturer requirements and other established quality requirements of the project.

Holland sees through the lens of quality from day 1

Be sure that the construction company you’re considering is focused on quality assurance. Your construction company needs to see your project through the “lens of quality” from pre-construction planning through the completion of your project and beyond. They should concentrate intently on every detail contained in your project documents, searching for potential quality-related issues and providing solutions long before they may materialize on the jobsite.
