What is construction quality control?

In construction, quality control is ensuring a project meets the client’s standards and guidelines. This includes completing a project within the scope of work—and avoiding any disputes in the process.

This construction quality control checklist will help you track (and improve) your project’s quality through its life cycle.

Why is quality control in construction important?

Delivering high-quality projects can help your company in many ways, like:

  • Improving client satisfaction
  • Reducing costs for potential reworks
  • Building company morale for doing good work
  • Increasing opportunities to win future bids
  • Word travels fast in the construction industry. That’s why it’s important to maintain a good reputation for your company’s quality of work. Higher quality work opens up new opportunities to keep your clients happy—and gain new ones.

    What are some best practices to deliver higher quality projects?

    According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), effectively managing jobsite safety and health leads to a higher quality product. In other words, safety and quality go hand in hand.

    Educating your workers on company safety protocols and resources is key. Ongoing safety training like toolbox talks keeps crews aware of any risks or hazards. Safety talks also give them a chance to ask safety questions, or raise concerns, they have any. Be sure to continually inspect your equipment and builds, too.

    What other resources can help improve my quality control?

    In addition to safety and quality checklists and inspections, you can improve your quality control by increasing your overall project visibility. Better documentation is a good place to start.

    Raken’s Production Tracking feature lets your crews track equipment, materials, and time cards—right from the mobile app. Crews can quickly record quantities of materials installed throughout the day, and assign them cost codes. They can also add photos, notes, or other attachments to give you even more insights.

    With real-time productivity data in hand, you can make better decisions to help your projects stay on time and within budget.
