Managing construction projects can be a challenging task, as meeting quality standards is crucial for success. Failing to meet these standards can not only upset stakeholders but also lead to legal action. To ensure quality, construction companies should implement a construction quality control system that specifies acceptable quality levels, monitors progress, and makes necessary adjustments to reach benchmarks.

Quality assurance is an essential aspect of a construction company's growth, reputation management, and revenue generation. However, not everyone has control over the quality of their projects. Research shows that 54% of construction errors are linked to human factors such as untrained labor or insufficient supervision.

What is quality control
in construction?

Construction quality control is a management technique that ensures the final product meets the client's established norms and regulations. It involves completing the project within agreed-upon parameters and preventing conflicts throughout the project's course. Quality is determined by clients, regulatory bodies, environmental standards, and policy directives. A construction quality management plan outlines all these methods and requirements for quality assurance.

Quality control and quality assurance are two components of construction quality. Quality control is the strategy to achieve it, while quality assurance establishes quality management expectations and how quality will be achieved. The construction quality control manager drives this quality management plan throughout all project phases.
