Quality is everyone’s business

Quality issues are one of the most important causes of construction waste.  As a consequence project team members are dealing with production inefficiency, overproduction, miscommunication and repeated work. 

Why do disruptions in the quality chain on a construction site happen?  

  • Lack of stakeholder involvement, commit and collaboration
  • No established method for a quality management process or procedure
  • Lack of communication from the field or office
  • No access to real-time information  
  • Paper-based processes  

Improving quality at the site serves everyone in construction supply chain. A highly efficient approach to achieving and proactively managing quality is through the digitization of paper-based processes, making them available at every stage of a project to improve collaboration and involvement within project stakeholders. 

The top five benefits of improving quality by digitizing in the construction industry

  1. Improved productivity and reduced cost
  2. Decreased construction waste, contributing to a more sustainable working environment
  3. Project stakeholder involvement and commitment 
  4. Improved collaboration and co-operation 
  5. Reduced rework by doing things right the first time 

No matter how complex the construction project is or what type of building is built – residential, commercial, or industrial – quality is everyone’s business.
