Construction Quality Control: Essential Tips for Managing Quality

Construction quality control is a management system aimed at ensuring the final deliverable meets the standards and guidelines set by the client. It is a quality management system that allows you to define what quality is, track it and make necessary changes to ensure those benchmarks are met. There are two aspects of quality in construction: quality assurance (QA) and quality control (QC). Quality assurance sets the quality management expectations and how quality will be achieved, while quality control is the plan to achieve it. Construction quality control is important because it improves client satisfaction, reduces costs and keeps you on schedule, and leads to a successful project. Quality control procedures in the construction industry include five steps to bring clarity to the work.
The most important details in this text are the importance of defining what done means, creating an inspection plan, creating a quality control checklist, correcting work, reviewing and revising, and sharing the conclusion with the whole construction crew. Defining what done means involves completing the project with no defects, satisfying code requirements, and conforming to client's specifications. Creating an inspection plan involves deciding what is inspected and letting the team know when it's inspected. Creating a quality control checklist ensures quality control is met and also communicates to the crew what's essential in their tasks. Correct work involves marking the work that needs fixing, correcting the problem and documenting the correction. Review and revise the conclusion to ensure it doesn't show up elsewhere.
