Quality is defined as “fitness to purpose” ie. Providing a product (a building) which provides an appropriate quality for the purpose for which it is intended. The price to be paid for a building is a reflection of the expectations of quality; a cheaper building probably uses inferior materials and is likely to be less attractive and less durable. The quality is also related to the timing of when it is delivered.

Quality control in the construction industry can be looked at as having three elements:

  • To produce a building which satisfies the client
  • To produce a building where the quality is related to the price
  • To produce a building in which sufficient time is allowed to obtain the desired quality

Like most other aspects of construction management, quality control has to be planned. Planning seeks “order”, and a quality system for a construction project reflects this sense of order. It may be described in five basic stages:

  • Setting the quality standard or quality of design required by the client
  • Planning how to achieve the required quality and construction methods, equipment, materials and personnel to be employed
  • Construct the building right the first time
  • Correct any quality deficiencies
