CM 05 – Building Quality in Construction Projects

About Instructor


The 2-day course starts by introducing quality and quality management. The course takes a proactive approach to quality by building it in rather than doing inspection later. For example, it is better to engage the best engineering firm available rather than choosing the lowest bidder and then monitor their work closely. The course addresses quality as it applies to construction and project management. It concludes with an introduction to quality auditing. Quality auditing is very essential to ensure construction projects are carried out to meet the quality standard and Organization policies.
