Ensuring your construction workers create quality work is important. Monitoring quality control throughout each project leads to improved work delivery.
Delivering quality construction work results in minimal rework and increased revenue. This improves your bottom line.
Implement these five tips to ensure your construction workers are delivering quality work.
1. Create Quality Standards
Set quality standards for each project based on the contractual stipulations and type of construction. This helps your construction workers measure and assess the quality of work performed.
You may want to use the following sources to develop the quality standards for a project:
- Local, national, and international building codes
- Third-party testing and auditing standards such as ISO:9000
- Manufacturer requirements and recommendations for the products and equipment used
Ensure the quality standards are reasonable and easily understood. This helps your construction workers deliver quality work.
2. Make Regular Quality Control Checks
Conduct quality control checks throughout each construction phase. This helps uncover issues as they arise.
For instance, make quality control checks during and right after electrical and wiring system installation. Having subcontractors available for any rework helps prevent the need for design changes or demolition to repair the problems.
Quality control planning software helps identify any vulnerable areas that should be tested. This helps ensure your construction workers produce quality work.
3. Conduct Independent Audits
Hire a qualified third party to audit your quality standards. The individual or team has the advanced tools to identify any issues a project manager or builder might overlook. This confirms whether your construction workers complete quality work.
4. Implement Construction Technology
Use construction productivity software to determine the common causes of low-quality work. This helps your construction workers and other relevant parties communicate throughout the project. Regular communication reduces the odds of construction workers misunderstanding the information and lowering the work quality.
Using construction software provides additional benefits:
- Maintains the project documents, drawings, and reports in one platform
- Helps keep the documents updated
- Allows viewing the project documents when needed
- Promotes collaboration
- Reduces disagreements
- Helps keep the project on schedule
- Allows planning of quality control audits
5. Use Skilled Labor
Your construction workers’ skill levels impact the quality of the work. As a result, hiring workers with onsite experience is essential.
Consider investing in comprehensive training programs for your construction workers to develop the skills required to produce quality work. Better yet, work with a local staffing agency that specializes in the construction industry. The agency can provide skilled workers when and where you need them.
