Quality has direct impact on the project costs
When it comes to construction projects, quality is not something that should be overlooked. Neglecting quality can have serious consequences, from project delays to large extra costs.
In this blog post, we will discuss the importance of quality-focused processes in the construction industry and how neglecting quality can derail your construction project.
Commissioning, quality focused process
One of the most important aspects of quality in the construction industry is commissioning. Commissioning is a quality-focused process that involves the verification and documentation of systems and equipment to ensure they are designed, installed, tested, and maintained to meet the owner's project requirements.
This process is particularly important for mechanical, electrical, plumbing, and fire protection systems as these systems are essential for the proper functioning of a building.
At CxPlanner we have integrated the commissioning framework into all our processes, so wether it's testing or punchlist, you always get the benefit of the commissioning process.
General quality assurance (QA)
Another important aspect of quality management in the construction industry is the use of quality assurance and quality control techniques. Quality assurance (QA) is a process that ensures that a product or service meets the specified requirements and standards.
Quality control (QC) is a process that involves inspecting and testing products or services to ensure they meet the required quality standards. These processes can be implemented throughout the entire construction process, from design to completion, to ensure that the final product meets the required standards.
Solve the quality problems with the right tools
One tool that can be used to ensure quality management in the construction industry is CxPlanner. CxPlanner is a software that helps to manage commissioning processes and quality control activities by providing a central location for all project-related information, including documents, plans, and test results.
This tool can help to streamline the commissioning process, improve communication, and reduce errors, which ultimately helps to improve the quality of the final product.
When quality is not prioritized:
- It can lead to project delays
- Significant extra costs
- Missing deadlines
- Costly repairs
For example, if a building is not properly commissioned, it can result in systems not functioning properly, which can lead to costly repairs and downtime.
Additionally, if quality control measures are not put in place, it can result in defects in the final product, which can lead to costly repairs and even legal issues.
Be the winner - be the master of quality
