Quality control and safety represent increasingly important concerns for our team. We always try to ensure that the job is done right the first time and that no major accidents occur on the project. Quality control during construction consists largely of insuring conformance to these original design and planning decisions. With the attention to conformance as the measure of quality during the construction process, the specification of quality requirements in the design and contract documentation becomes extremely important. Quality requirements are clear and verifiable, so that all parties in the project can understand the requirements for conformance. Much of the discussion in this chapter relates to the development and the implications of different quality requirements for construction as well as the issues associated with insuring conformance.
