Quality is the most elusive word in the construction industry. Buyers say they want it. Contractors say they deliver it. Yet the general perception is that quality (whatever it is) is declining in the field of construction. Skill and workmanship are frequent causes for the quality problems. Material selection is the next most common cause. Finally, inadequate or superficial design and/or preparation are responsible for a significant portion of the quality compromises.

Today it is true that many accredited certified Contractors are professional in their approach, and owing to strict internal and external audits, maintain a high standard of operations compliant with their QA System. However, it has now become evident that although a QA Registered Contractor can boast of a well-managed paperwork system, the same is not always true when it comes to supervising works out on site. Defects and failures still occur even though a Contractor is QA Registered. Many Clients have also become concerned that the influx of foreign labor if used on their sites could affect the standard of construction, not because they are bad trades men, but because of their lack of management and language skills and interpretation of Specification and Quality and Health & Safety requirements.

Independent Site Inspectors provide reassurance and peace of mind that the works being carried out are in line with the contract documents and recognized workmanship standards. They monitor the conditions that works are carried out in to ensure that it is done as designed. They witness tests to verify that the works meet specified requirements. They monitor progress against the program so that an independent view of where the contract is at any given stage is balanced against the contractorís own assessments. By providing weekly reports they are able to advice on all aspects of the works in progress and highlight any concerns to deal with it before it is too late.

This training program is designed to cover the concepts, policies, and techniques of managing the QA and QC activities in construction business establishments.
