Although it work towards the delivery of a final product that meets the project specifications and customer’s expectations, it arrive’s at the outcome in two very different ways.
- Quality Control (QC) simply refers to the process of inspecting the product to identify and correct defects. In construction, we have QC down.
- Building inspectors, third-party inspectors, testing labs, job site to identify any required corrective action. which may take the form of a dreaded punch list that is often generated in the final stages of a project.
- The pace becomes frenzied and we all work to finish, fix, and ultimately, hand over to operations and maintenance. I think we are good at QC in construction.
- We tend to find our problems early and get them fixed so the client is happy and satisfied with the project. The real problem in construction is not that we hand over defective projects. That before handoff we find so much that needs to be fixed.
- This is the rework problem that we see cited so often in the media and in the numerous studies out there that identify rework as a big issue in construction, and a major contributor to our industry’s productivity problem.
