Quality Assurance (QA) and Quality Control (QC)

In the construction industry, quality is a measure of excellence in how well a finished building meets the owner and end user’s needs and requirements. Whether you’re a building owner, architect, contractor, or construction manager, quality is the primary goal of any construction project you undertake.

Quality Assurance (QA) and Quality Control (QC) are two complementary components of a greater concept: Quality Management. To achieve success in a construction project and prevent additional expenses and potential problems, both QA and QC must be effectively planned and implemented.

Building Commissioning

Building commissioning (Cx) is a systematic process to ensure that a building’s systems perform as designed and that the owner’s efficiency strategies and lifecycle costs are met. VERTEX supplies Cx services for both new construction and existing buildings. Our team will work with your project designers, contractors, and stakeholders throughout the pre-construction phases, as well as during occupancy.

During the pre-construction stage of your project, we will perform a professional documentation review and help in the development of the Owner’s Project Requirements (OPR) and Basis of Design (BOD). During construction, our Cx experts will verify that the building’s systems are implemented properly, as well as prepare manuals and documentation for maintenance and operations personnel. After occupancy, our Cx specialists can provide additional testing to develop specific reports, such as attaining sustainability certifications.

Quality assurance ensures the delivery of quality products and prevents defects by implementing planned and systematic activities over the course of the project. A QA program consists of rigorous measures that aim not only to ensure construction code compliance and safety, but also to save money and time related to substandard quality on site. It also establishes benchmarks and provides means of continuous improvement. Its steps are carried out ‘before the fact’, not after it. To learn the difference between QA and quality control, read here.

When applied effectively, a QA program provides confidence and assurance that the quality of workmanship and materials incorporated into the project comply with requirements and specifications of the plan.

Crucial benefits of QA include:

Fulfilling quality requirements, codes and regulations

When designing a building, it’s important to identify the requirements of the design and adhere to local and state codes and standards. To achieve quality construction, every builder should realize the significance of investing in a comprehensive QA plan. QA consultants are familiar with construction and building laws, codes, and regulations. They will make certain that the highest industry standards are applied every step of the way.

Ensuring that quality materials are used on site and solid workmanship is achieved

An effective independent quality assurance program encompasses all construction activities and materials so that they requirements and achieve the structure’s performance goals. An experienced QA team can not only perform a third-party review of the plan, but also conduct a site inspection and provide a constructability analysis.
