Introduction

Quality is never an accident. Quality is the result of intelligent effort

Construction contractors understand that general liability losses are increasing due to the costs to settle construction
defect claims.

By adopting a Quality Management System (QMS), construction contractors can significantly reduce these losses.
Accordingly, this sample Corporate Quality Management Manual (QMM) can be used by Zurich's GC customers to
develop their own Corporate Quality Management Program.

This sample QMM has been prepared for a "generic" general contractor, ABC Construction Company, Inc. In using
this sample manual as a starting point to draft your own Corporate QMM, inapplicable sections or text should be
deleted, as appropriate to the requirements of your construction market and project types.

ABC's Quality Mission Statement: At ABC, quality is building it right and doing it right.
Consistent quality is the result of commitment and participation by every project participant --- this includes the owner,
general contractor, subcontractors, sub-subcontractors and designers.

This Corporate Quality Management Manual (QMM) outlines ABC's corporate Quality Assurance (QA) and Quality
Control (QC) policies, standards and procedures that comprise ABC's Quality Management Program, hereinafter, the
"Program." The purpose of this QMM is 3-fold:

1. To ensure completion of projects meeting the highest quality standards for our customers
2. To ensure that we deliver best-in-class services to our customers while creating a competitive advantage
3. To provide guidelines to our employees about our quality policies, standards and procedures

Due to the ever-changing nature of construction, the information herein cannot provide details for managing every
quality issue; however, this QMM provides guidelines that will improve the quality of ABC's work and the work of its
subcontractors.

This QMM is meant to not only be read, but also to be implemented on every ABC project.

This manual is a living document and, as such, ABC's Operations Manager (OM) will control distribution and revisions.
To ensure quality management best practices are met, ABC's Quality Steering Committee will review this program, at
least, semi-annually and revise, as necessary. Each corporate QMM revision is effective as of the issue date.

All ABC field and home office personnel must understand this QMM. ABC's Project Teams (PT's) shall follow this
Corporate QMM in preparing their project-specific Quality Management Plans (QMP's.) PT members include, but are
not limited to: Project Manager (PM), project superintendent, area superintendents, project engineer, field engineers, Site
Quality Control Supervisor (SQCS) and administration personnel.

All employees are expected to act responsibly and in accordance with these quality guidelines to promote the
professional integrity of ABC and to improve our customer service.

At the completion of a project, ABC will solicit feedback from our client and design team about our performance.
Likewise, ABC will request comments from subcontractors and suppliers on ways to improve our performance.

1. ABC's Corporate Quality Management Program and Communication Plan
1.1. Goals
To prevent construction defects from occurring
To ensure work conforms to the contract documents and functional performance requirements
To select qualified, quality-oriented subcontractors
To ensure that workmanship required by the contract documents is performed by knowledgeable
ABC and subcontractor craftsmen
To perform timely inspections and tests by ABC, subcontractors and third party inspection personnel
as defined in the Inspection and Testing Plan (See Section 3.3 below)
To achieve a zero punchlist at substantial completion
To minimize punchlists and rework during the course of construction
To ensure warranties are preserved
1.2. General Content project-specific Quality Management Plans (QMP's)
A project-specific QMP shall be prepared by ABC's Project Manager (PM) with input from the owner,
architect and consultants no later than at mobilization to the field and, if required, approved by the owner
prior to implementation. ABC's project superintendent shall be responsible to review and comply with the
owner's specific QA/QC criteria, if any, as described in the ABC/Owner agreement. Changes
recommended by the owner, architect or consultants, if acceptable to ABC's Operations Manager (OM)
see Section 1.3 below, shall be incorporated into a revised project-specific QMP.
Project-specific QMP's will include quality activities for the following construction phases:
Pre-construction
Construction
Post-construction
The table of contents for a project-specific QMP shall be as follows:
An Inspection and Testing Plan
Inspection Checklists customized to project-specific requirements
Inspection Report Forms ABCs and Subcontractors Daily Quality Control Inspection Forms
A Non-conformance Tracking Procedure and Log
Digital Photography Requirements
A Zero Defects Program (ZDP)
Quality Control (QC) documentation based on the US Army Corps of Engineers' 3 phases of Quality
Control:
Preparatory Phase documentation (called Pre-installation phase in this QMM)
Initial Phase documentation (called First Work-in-Place phase in this QMM)
Follow-up phase documentation (daily inspections)
100% Material Verification
Pre-cover-up and Pre-closure Inspections and Photographs
Special processes or requirements, if applicable
Water Intrusion Prevention
Project-specific QMP's will incorporate key procedures and language from this corporate QMM, but it
shall be customized to project-specific requirements. A template for preparation of a project-specific
QMP is available from your Zurich Risk Engineer.
Each of the above topics is described in detail in the following sections. Sample agendas, forms, logs,
meeting minute templates and a water intrusion checklist are provided in the Attachments.
1.3. Roles and Responsibilities
ABC's executive committee is responsible to develop and implement a communication plan to instruct
field and office personnel of the importance and need for this Program. ABC's executive committee is
responsible to define and monitor compliance with this Corporate Quality Management Program at home
office and field locations. The executive committee is committed to providing adequate training and other
resources to ensure the Programs success.
The executive committee has created a Quality Steering Committee (QSC) to manage the Program. The
QSC is responsible to review the effectiveness of the Program and to make revisions, as appropriate. The
QSC will meet monthly (initially) to review quality issues and the effectiveness of project-specific QMP's.

-5-
Membership on the QSC is the responsibility of the executive committee and will include PM's,
superintendents and a new position, a Quality Director (QD.)
The QSC is responsible to:
Evaluate the effectiveness of the Program, at least, semi-annually
Identify opportunities for improvement and recommend appropriate corrective measures
Monitor construction industry quality issues and trends
Coordinate all company functions in support of quality management best practices
Establish quality-related metrics to measure ABC's performance
After close-out of a project, customers will be asked to evaluate ABC's performance on their project
so that the QSC can identify opportunities for growth and improvement.
At the above-mentioned QSC meeting, the QSC will discuss and review quality-related issues and
lessons learned from selected projects. Project personnel will be requested to attend these meetings.
The OM will direct the Program until the Quality Director position in filled. The QD (ultimately) is
responsible for the following activities:
Chairs the QSC
Reports on the performance of the Program
Assists ABC's PT's with development, updating and implementation of project-specific QMP's
Assists ABC's PT's in managing and resolving quality issues

Provides updates and revisions to this QMM, at least, semi-annually
Conducts periodic quality audits of ABC's projects
Oversees the collection and storage of quality documentation including document retention
requirements
Develops and tracks key performance metrics about the Program
Pre-qualifies and maintains a list of approved third party peer review consultants and testing
laboratories/consultants
ABC's project superintendent is responsible for implementing the Program on their projects. Preparation
of a project-specific QMP is mandatory on all projects. The QD will assist ABC's PM in interpreting
the requirements of the Program and will have final approval of the contents of each project-specific
QMP.
At a minimum, ABC's PT's are responsible for the following quality-related activities:
Accept responsibility on the part of every ABC employee for implementing a project-specific QMP
on their project
Report all quality-related weaknesses or problems to ABC's QD immediately, such as, inadequate
design details, other serious design deficiencies, etc.
Designate an ABC employee as ABC's Site Quality Control Supervisor (SQCS) this individual will
generally be the project superintendent for larger projects or the site foreman for smaller projects,
unless the project requires a full-time SQCS, as many US Government projects do.
Identify project-specific quality requirements and appropriate resources
Prepare and submit to the owner a project-specific QMP, if required by the owners contract with
ABC
Review and approve subcontractor's Site Specific QC Plans (SSQCP's) (See Section 3.1 below)
Implement ABCs project-specific QMP
Customize ABC's and subcontractors' Inspection Checklists for your specific project requirements
Serve in a Quality Assurance (QA) role by requiring that QC inspections, testing and documentation
including other quality-related activities are performed by subcontractors for their work
Communicate with third party inspectors, building code officials, owner and design consultants and
subcontractors' Site Quality Representative (SQR) this individual will generally be the on-site lead
person from the subcontractor
Prepare Non-conformance Reports for ABC's self-performed work and for the work of
subcontractors

-6-
Continuously maintain a status log of Non-conformance Reports (NCR's) including applicable
photographs --- and assure timely resolution of same
Maintain current submittals, submittal logs, drawings, specifications and record drawings in the field
office
Manage ABC's Zero Defects Program (ZDP) see Section 3.8 below
Collect, organize and maintain ABC's project quality documentation including inspection and testing
logs and other metrics that comprise quality management key performance indicators
ABC project superintendents are responsible for directing and conveying QMP requirements to ABC's
construction foremen and to subcontractor foremen. All foremen are responsible for directing and
conveying project quality requirements to craft personnel they supervise. Craft personnel are responsible
to meet or exceed minimum quality requirements at all times. This requirement will be discussed as part of
each new employee's hiring orientation --- ABC and subcontractor personnel.
Subcontractors are responsible to:
Adhere to the requirements of ABC's project-specific QMP as it applies to their scope of work
Submit a Site Specific QC Plan (See Section 3.1 below)
Designate a Site Quality Representative (SQR) that shall be present at all times the subcontractor is
working on-site. The SQR will typically be the subcontractor's foreman or lead person
Participate in ABC's Zero Defect Program (ZDP)
Perform daily quality inspections and tests
Submit Subcontractor's Daily Quality Control Report
Upon request, submit daily jobsite photo's
2. Pre-construction Quality Activities
Pre-construction activities include those taking place prior to commencing physical construction at the jobsite.
These pre-construction activities frequently involve decisions that impact constructability and quality performance.
ABC will coordinate its pre-construction services with the owner, architect, subcontractors and other consultants.
The following paragraphs describe the most common pre-construction activities. Some may not apply to your
project's requirements.
2.1. Design Peer Reviews (as applicable)
For all residential projects or complex, high-risk or unusual projects, ABC or the owner may elect to hire
independent designers (other than the designer of record) to perform a peer review of the design
documents. The purpose is to assess the adequacy, integration and completeness of the design documents,
code compliance and conformance with manufacturer, supplier and vendor requirements including
warranties. Possible peer review consultants include: structural, acoustic, vibration,
waterproofing/roofing, lighting, ADA or code compliance.
2.2. Constructability Reviews (as applicable)
It is ABC's policy that a constructability review be performed by ABC's PM and project superintendent
and key subcontractors on all projects in conjunction with the owner and project consultants. Early and
continuous involvement by the entire project team --- ABC's QD, subcontractors, the owner and project
consultants --- during these reviews will reduce the likelihood of including products/designs prone to
installation or functional difficulties based upon the collective experience with those products/designs. It
is particularly important to perform a comprehensive constructability review for high-risk, one-of-a-kind
or unusual design elements.
2.3. Review of Plans and Specifications (mandatory)
Before beginning construction and as early as development of plans and specifications allow, ABC's PM
and project superintendent will perform an in-depth review of the contract documents. This review will
seek to identify conflicts, unclear or incomplete items. Examples include:
Dimensional conflicts between civil, architectural, and structural drawings, etc.
Dimensional conflicts between plans and details
Incomplete details
Conflicting fixture and equipment locations, designations or quantities, as applicable
Location or routing conflicts among architectural and MEP items, as applicable
Resolution of the above discrepancies shall be the responsibility of the owner and design consultants,
not ABC.

-7-
2.4. Documenting Existing Conditions (as applicable)
Depending on the particular scope of work, someone designated from ABC's PT will inspect and create a
photographic and/or video record that documents existing conditions paying particular attention to pre-
existing physical defects. Items to be photographed include:
Existing structures within or directly adjacent to the construction limits which are to remain
Adjacent buildings and structures outside the construction limits which may affected by construction
activities
Sidewalks, curbs, paving and drainage structures
Trees and existing vegetation
Above-ground utilities
Operable devices, such as, doors and windows
2.5. Samples, Submittals and Procurement (mandatory)
As early as practical, but prior to the First Work-in-Place, ABC's PM will develop a
comprehensive submittal register. The register will identify all items requiring submittal by ABC,
its subcontractors and suppliers. The submittal register should identify the "due date" taking into
account the submittal review and approval process including possible revisions and re-submittals
plus the time for fabrication, transportation and delivery to the jobsite.
Submittal samples shall demonstrate the level of quality that is acceptable to the owner and the
responsible design professional. In some cases, this may require a mock-up outside of the actual
area of construction. In other cases, it may be the first acceptable unit of production or first
Definable Feature of Work (DFW) by ABC or its subcontractors (See Section 3.6.1 below.) These
samples mock-ups will constitute the minimum level of workmanship. In all cases, these samples
or mock-ups will be preserved as a baseline for quality.
ABC shall strictly comply with contract submittal requirements. No materials, equipment or supplies,
requiring submittal review, shall be procured until submittals have been approved by the owner, architect
and/or design consultants. Copies of approved submittals including manufacturer's installation
instructions shall be maintained in both ABC's home and field offices. ABC's PM shall be responsible to
manage the submittal process and coordinate procurement activities. Variations or substitutions will not be
allowed without a letter from ABC to the owner as to the benefit to the owner of the proposed change.
All variations or substitutions must be approved by the owner in accordance with contract requirements.
ABC's PM will ensure that all purchased building materials, equipment, and supplies conform to project
requirements. Vendors will be selected --- in part --- on their ability to provide the items specified on-time
and packaged to ensure that they are appropriately protected during loading, unloading and storage at the
jobsite.
2.6. Material Receiving at the Jobsite (mandatory)
ABC's SQCS or designee will verify that 100% of the items delivered to the jobsite are those specified and
in strict conformance with approved submittals prior to installation (See 100% Material Verification
Section 3.7 below.)
2.7. Subcontractor Selection (mandatory)
Subcontractor selection shall follow ABC's subcontractor pre-qualification and selection policies and
procedures, which include safety, quality, capability and capacity evaluations as well as pricing, with the
goal of avoiding a low bid focus. Selection shall be based on quality, experience and ability to complete
successfully the scope of work as intended, as well as cost. It is ABC's policy to conduct a subcontractor
Pre-construction Meeting at the jobsite for each subcontractor prior to the start of their work. A sample
Pre-construction Meeting Agenda is provided as Attachment 7.1.
2.8. Mock-ups (as applicable)
As part of the pre-construction planning process, ABC's PM will confirm the owner's contractual
requirements for in-situ or freestanding mock-ups. In addition to these contractually defined mock-ups,
ABC's PM will identify other high-risk construction assemblies as candidates for additional in-situ or
freestanding mock-ups, such as:
Exterior skin --- particular attention shall be devoted to transitions between dissimilar materials,
windows to skin, skin to parapets, brick to EIFS, etc.) and construction details that do not conform to
the manufacturer's standard details, and concerns expressed by the building skin subcontractors over
the approved construction documents and submittals
Roofing
Window and door penetrations

-8-
Pre-cast or GFRC panels
Drywall finish/texture
Wall/ceiling finishes
Floor finishes
Cabinets and millwork
Countertops and fixtures
Hardscape
Mock-up units, such as, bathrooms, kitchens on multi-unit projects
ABC's PM will determine the exact number and type of mock-ups to be constructed on their specific
project. Mock-ups will be utilized to establish appropriate minimum levels of quality wherever needed.
First Work-in-Place installations will generally serve the purpose of a mock-up.
2.9. Water Testing (as applicable)
As part of the pre-construction planning process, ABC's PM will confirm the owner's contractual
requirements for water testing. In addition to these contractually defined water tests, ABC's PM will
identify other high-risk construction assemblies as candidates for additional water tests that may be
performed by ABC, a subcontractor, or third party consultant, such as:
Exterior skin
Curtainwall systems
Windows
Skylights
Exterior doors, thresholds and store fronts
Balcony and deck transitions to the building wall
Planters above occupied spaces
Flat roofs
Shower pans
Fountains
2.10. Factory/Shop Inspections (as applicable)
As part of the pre-construction planning process, ABC's PM will identify high-risk construction
assemblies, equipment or materials that a designed PT member will witness a critical destructive or non-
destructive test. In addition to critical electrical and mechanical equipment, possible candidates for these
factory/shop inspections are the items listed in Section 2.9 above. ABC's PM will provide its draft list of
construction assemblies, equipment or materials for factory/shop inspections to the owner, architect and
other consultants for their review and comment, as applicable. The owner, architect and other consultants
may choose to accompany ABC's representative to the applicable factory/shop location to co-witness
these critical destructive or non-destructive tests. ABC's PM will seek written approval of each assembly
that will require factory/shop inspections from owner/architect/consultant, as applicable.
3. Construction Quality Activities
3.1. Roles and Responsibilities for Quality Control (QC)
ABC's Site Quality Control Supervisor (SQCS) Duties:
Coordinate and conduct quality meetings and inspections
Coordinate visits by manufacturer or distributor representatives to provide training and/or site
inspections/observations
Coordinate the QC efforts of ABC, subcontractors and third party inspectors in complying with
project-specific QMP
Provide direct feedback and advise to ABC's PM and project superintendent on the effectiveness of
QC activities
The SQCS will have authority to stop work if workmanship or materials do not to conform with
project requirements
Review work-in-place for conformance with submittals, manufacturer's installation instructions and
project specifications
Confirm all inspections and tests are performed in conformance with project requirements
Inspect ABC's and subcontractor's work, issue Non-conformance Reports, monitor correction and
completion of non-conforming work items on a Non-conformance Report Log (See Section 3.5
below.)

-9-
Subcontractors
Each subcontractor shall be required to submit a Site Specific Quality Control Plan (SSQCP) to ABC for
review and approval by ABC's SQCS before work can commence. This SSQCP will describe
measurements, inspections, and tests including inspection and testing forms to be completed to ensure
conformance with project quality requirements. This SSQCP will include Inspection Checklists,
photographs, samples, water tests, pressure tests, and other tests, as applicable, including the frequency of
testing.
Each subcontractor shall designate a Site Quality Representative (SQR) to manage its SSQCP. A sample
template for a Site Specific subcontractor Quality Control Plan is provided as Attachment 7.2. These
SSQCP's shall be incorporated into ABC's project-specific QMP. ABC's SQCS shall approve each
SSQCP.
3.2. Quality Control Administration
ABC's PM, project superintendent and SQCS will participate in the project-specific Quality Management
Program (QMP.) Sufficient inspections and tests of all items of ABC's self-performed work and work
performed by subcontractors will be performed on a continuous basis to insure conformance with the
quality of materials, workmanship, fit, finish, function and performance as defined by the contract
documents.
Implementation
ABC's PM will receive all testing data from testing firms/laboratories and will route the test results to:
ABC's project superintendent
ABC's project superintendent will forward copies to the SQCS and other parties, as appropriate
Workmanship Inspections
ABC's SQCS will inspect items that will be covered-up by a following operation. ABC's SQCS will verify
that all items are installed in accordance with the contract documents before covering-up. Photographs or
videos of all work to be covered-up is a mandatory requirement (See Section 3.10 below.)
Documentation
ABC's SQCS will prepare and maintain timely records of all QC activities, inspections and tests.
Subcontractor's QCR will do the same for its QC activities, inspections and tests.
Inspection and Testing Log (See sample provided as Attachment 7.3)
As inspections and tests are performed, ABC's SQCS or designee will record them on the Inspection and
Testing Log:
Specification section
Description of the test performed
Location of the test
Who performed the test
Date the test was conducted
Date test results were received and forwarded to the appropriate parties
Any remarks to appropriate parties
Punchlist / Final Inspection (See sample Punchlist provided as Attachment 7.4)
Near the completion of all work or any increment thereof, ABC's SQCS or project superintendent will
conduct an inspection of the work and develop a punchlist of items, which do not conform to the contract
documents. The punchlist will include the estimated correction date to correct deficiencies. The SQCS or
project superintendent will make follow-up inspections to validate correction of all punchlist items.

The following is a typical sequence of punchlist / final inspection activities:


Pre-punch by ABC
Deficiency correction and verification - pre-final inspection
Final inspection to include the owner's punchlist
Deficiency correction and verification sign-off by the owner or the owner's representative
Final Acceptance
Final system testing, as applicable
System operation and sequence verification, as applicable
O&M Manuals
Delivery of record drawings and warranties

- 10 -
Instruction and training procedures
3.3. Inspection and Testing Plan (see sample provided as Attachment 7.5)
As a part of the project-specific QMP, ABC's SCQS will prepare an Inspection and Testing Plan
delineating all inspections and tests required by the contract documents. This plan will include ABC's and
subcontractors' work.
Information on the Inspection and Testing Plan will include:
CSI specification reference, paragraph, item number, etc.
Who will perform the inspection or test?, i.e., ABC, subcontractor, material testing firm, third party
consultant, manufacturer's representative, etc.
Test or inspection description
Test or inspection frequency
Test or inspection report form that will document the test results
ABC's SQCS will maintain an Inspection and Testing Log (See Section 3.2 above) that documents all
inspections and testing performed for ABC's and subcontractor's scopes of work.
It is best practice to involve manufacturer's representatives in inspections and approvals for high risk
building elements such as:
Roofing systems
Window systems
Other elements of the building envelope
Specialized and/or proprietary installations such as equipment, flooring systems, etc.
Other systems, as applicable
Develop a plan to involve these manufacturer's representatives in Preparatory Phase meetings and for
the First Work-in-Place inspections
3.4. Inspection Checklists
Inspections Checklists have been developed by ABC as an aid to field personnel in making quality
inspections/observations.
Upon each subcontract award, each subcontractor will be given a copy of ABC's Inspection Checklists
associated with their scope of work. Subcontractors will be asked to propose additions or modifications
based on the project's specific requirements and their own checklists/inspection forms. Final Inspection
Checklists will be approved by ABC's SQCS with the concurrence of the owner, as appropriate.
3.5. Non-conformance Tracking Procedure
A non-conformance, also known as a deficiency, is work that strictly speaking doesnt meet project
requirements. A non-conformance can be either material-related, workmanship related, design-related or a
combination thereof. In almost all cases, non-conforming work must be re-worked or corrected.
Whenever a member of ABC's PT, owner, architect or consultant notes a non-conformance --- partially
complete or complete ---- installation of the non-conforming item in question will not continue until the
non-conforming work has been corrected and conforms with the requirements of the contract documents.
Non-conforming items will be documented on a Non-conformance Report (NCR) and tracked on a Non-
conformance Report Log (See Attachments 7.6 and 7.7 for examples of these forms.)
Non-conforming items will be tracked and recorded on the Non-conformance Report Log, corrected and
accepted on a weekly basis in conjunction with ABC's Zero Defect Program (ZDP.)
ABC's SQCS is responsible to track self-performed non-conforming work and non-conforming work
performed by subcontractors. Any item that is not corrected on the spot (that day) will be documented by
a Non-conformance Report and posted to the Non-conformance Report Log.
ABC's non-conformance procedure is as follows:
Non-conforming work items are recorded on an NCR Form with a unique tracking number and
posted to the NCR Log
Non-conformance Reports will be issued by ABC's SQCS to ABC's craft foreman for ABC self-
performed work and to the subcontractor's craft foreman for their work
In most cases, the non-conforming work will be removed and replaced with conforming work, i.e.,
proper workmanship and/or approved materials.

- 11 -
ABC's SQCS will update the NCR Log indicating the status of NCR's in process and maintain a file of
"open" reports
If applicable, ABC's SQCS will forward the NCR to the owner, who, in turn, will forward same to the
architect or consulting engineer for resolution, as applicable
If applicable, upon completion of disposition instructions from the designer and/or others, the NCR
will be forwarded to ABC's SQCS so that corrective actions can be undertaken
After the corrective action(s) are complete, the work will be verified and documented by ABC's
SQCS, the owner, architect or consulting engineer, as applicable
If acceptable to all parties, the NCR will be closed and the NCR Log updated, accordingly
In some cases, the disposition may be "accept as is" with no rework or corrective action(s) required,
as approved by owner, architect, consultant or building official, as applicable. In these cases, the NCR
will be closed and the NCR Log updated.
3.6. Quality Control (QC) Program
3.6.1. Definable Features of Work (DFW)
The Construction Specifications Institute (CSI) organizes work based on specifications with
unique requirements and specific quality objectives. This includes identification of approved
manufacturers in each CSI specification. At a minimum, each specification section and sub-
section will be considered a DFW.
Each DFW will have a separate inspection and testing requirement. Either ABC, subcontractors,
vendors, or third party inspection companies will perform these inspections and tests. Theses
inspections and tests are listed on the Inspection and Testing Plan. (ABC has prepared
Inspection Checklists as described in Section 3.4.)
3.6.2. The 3 Phases of Quality Control (QC)
Construction quality depends on effective planning, coordination, communication, supervision
and testing. ABC's PT will use the following tools to achieve quality:
Quality planning meetings documented by meeting minutes (See Section 3.6.3 and 3.6.4
below)
Confirm that materials meet project requirements at the time of purchase and delivery to the
jobsite (See Section 3.7 below)
Daily inspections during construction (See Section 3.6.5 below)
Recordkeeping/documentation
Quality Control (QC) consists of tests, inspections and observations before installation
commences (Preparatory Phase), during First Work-in-Place (Initial Phase) and daily, while
installation continues (Follow-up Phase.)
The 3 phases of Quality Control (QC) are:
Preparatory Phase (called the Pre-installation Phase in this QMM)
Initial Phase (called the First Work-in-Place Phase in this QMM)
Follow-up Phase (daily inspections in this QMM)
The 3 phases of QC allow ABC to plan, schedule and install work in an orderly, consistent way
that minimizes rework.
3.6.3. Pre-installation Meeting and Inspection
A Pre-installation Phase meeting and inspection will be performed before construction
commences on each significant construction activity or Definable Feature of Work (DFW.)
This phase involves a Pre-installation meeting and inspection conducted by ABC's PM or project
superintendent and attended by the following individuals, as appropriate:
ABC's SQCS and subcontractor's SQR
Owner's representative
Design professional(s)
Third party QC consultants/inspectors hired by the owner, ABC or subcontractors
The craft supervisors (both ABC and subcontractor) responsible for the work under review
Manufacturer's representatives for building envelope components or other high risk
construction assemblies

- 12 -
The goal of this meeting is to focus ABC's and subcontractor's quality efforts on preventing
deficiencies rather than detecting deficiencies.
The following documents will be made available at this meeting:
Approved submittals, MSDS sheets, and shop drawings
Manufacturer's installation instructions
Applicable building codes
Current contract drawings including recent RFI's and ASI's
Current contract specifications
Current schedule
Safety hazard analysis
ABC's Inspection Checklists and Inspection Report Forms
ABC's project superintendent will notify all attendees of the meeting at least 48 hours in advance.
Minutes of the Pre-installation meeting and inspection will be taken and distributed to all
attendees by ABC. A form to document a Pre-installation meeting and inspection is included as
Attachment 7.8.
ABC's project superintendent or SCQS will perform the following activities before beginning
work on each significant construction activity or Definable Feature of Work (DFW.)
Review contract specifications
Review contract drawings, shop drawings, samples and submittals
Review code requirements
Review manufacturer's installation instructions
Review mock-up requirements, if any
Establish the timing and scope for the First Work-in-Place Phase and Follow-on Phase
inspections including a review of the appropriateness of the applicable inspection checklist

Check all materials and equipment are on-hand and have been tested, submitted, and
approved as required
Check that arrangements have been made for the required tests and inspections with the
appropriate parties
Ensure all preliminary work that is necessary for the work to be accomplished has been
satisfactorily completed --- this is sometimes called the work ready requirement. Examine
and photograph the work area to ensure that required preliminary work has been
satisfactorily completed.
Review site access, materials handling, and storage requirements
Check all required tools and equipment are correct and available
Discuss qualifications of foreman and crews, construction methods, schedule of installation,
tolerances, workmanship, standards and the approach to providing quality work by pre-
planning and identifying potential problems, including high moisture field conditions or
temperature restraints, as applicable
Review safety hazard analysis
Confirm required Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS's) are available and readily accessible
to work crews
3.6.4. First Work-in-Place Meeting and Inspection
A First Work-in-Place Phase meeting and inspection will be accomplished immediately prior to
and at commencement of construction of a significant construction activity or Definable Feature
of Work (DFW) to ensure compliance with project requirements.
This First Work-in-Place meeting and inspection will be conducted by ABC's project
superintendent and attended by the following individuals, as appropriate:
ABC's SQCS and subcontractor's SQR
Owner's representative
Design professional(s)
Third party QC consultants hired by the owner, ABC or subcontractors
The craft supervisor (either ABC or subcontractor) responsible for the work activity under
review

- 13 -
Manufacturer's representatives for building envelope components or other high risk
construction assemblies
ABC's project superintendent will notify all attendees of the First Work-in-Place meeting and
inspection at least 48 hours in advance. Minutes of the First Work-in-Place meeting and
inspection will be taken and distributed to all attendees by ABC. A form to document a First
Work-in-Place meeting and inspection is included as Attachment 7.9.
NOTE: For each new crew working onsite or whenever specified quality has not been met, a
First Work-in-Place inspection will be repeated.
ABC's project superintendent or SCQS will perform the following activities as part of the First
Work-in-Place process on each significant construction activity or Definable Feature of Work
(DFW.)
Review the minutes from the Pre-installation meeting above with the actual installation crew
to install the First Work-in-Place
Examine and photograph work area to assure all preliminary work has been accomplished
Check dimensions
Verify that all materials are in strict compliance with construction documents, samples,
submittals and shop drawings

Establish the acceptable level of workmanship
Check for omissions and resolve any differences of interpretation
Check safety compliance
Complete the First Work-in-Place Inspection Checklist and inspection form, as applicable
3.6.5. Follow-up Phase or Daily Inspections
Follow-up phase inspections will be performed daily. These inspections will use the Inspection
Checklists identified above in Section 3.4. If work is self-performed by ABC, ABC's Daily
Quality Control Inspection Report form will be completed (See sample as Attachment 7.10.)
Subcontractors will complete a Subcontractor's Daily Quality Control Report. (See sample as
Attachment 7.11.) Inspection personnel will continually refer to the standards established in the
Per-installation and First Work-in-Place Phases above when making these daily
inspections/observations.
Follow-up phase (Daily) inspections/observations will:
Ensure work continues to conform to the construction documents
Ensure quality of workmanship is maintained
Ensure required tests and inspections are being performed
Ensure that non-conforming or deficient work is being corrected
Ensure work is taking place safely
Ensure required certifications, calibrations and measurements are accurate
NOTE: Additional Pre-installation and First Work-in-Place Phase inspections will be conducted
on the same construction activity if:
The quality of on-going work is unacceptable
There are changes to personnel in the responsible third party QC consultants organization
There are changes in onsite production supervision or work crews
Work on a construction activity is resumed after a substantial period of inactivity, or
Other problems develop
Final Follow-up inspections will be conducted by ABC's project superintendent when conducting
the final acceptance walk-through with the owner, architect and consultants (See Section 3.2
above.)
3.7. One Hundred Percent (100%) Material Verification
As described in prior sections above, for all significant construction activities or Definable Features of
Work (DFW), ABC's SQCS, project superintendent or designee shall verify that all materials received at

- 14 -
the jobsite are in strict compliance with contract documents, samples, approved submittals and shop
drawings upon delivery or as soon as possible and absolutely no later than the Pre-installation phase.
Custom fabricated materials shall be verified at the earliest possible opportunities, in some cases, prior to
shipment see Section 2.10 above.
Of particular importance are drywall tapes, drywall joint compounds, mastics, caulking, grout, fasteners,
welding supplies, and other consumable supplies. This procedure ensures that unapproved materials are
not installed on your job.
During Follow-up inspections/observations, ABC's SQCS should continue to verify that approved
materials are being installed on your project. Unapproved material substitutions is a typical occurrence
that you should be careful to prevent.
It is best practice to have subcontractor's certify, in writing, to ABC that all materials they procured and
delivered to your jobsite continue to conform to project requirements. This certification can be
accomplished by having the subcontractor's SQR complete the Subcontractor Daily Quality Control
Report Form.
3.8. Zero Defect Program (ZDP
Goals for ABC's Zero Defects Program (ZDP) are:
To complete ABC's scope of work and the work of subcontractors with a zero punchlist at the time
of substantial completion of ABC's scope of work
To correct outstanding non-conformances during the course of construction within seven (7) calendar
days of identification, if possible, or as soon as practicable.
It is ABC's desire to obtain 100% buy-in from our subcontractors as partners in implementing ABC's
ZDP. In the event that the owner or architect chooses to not participate in ABC's ZDP, ABC's SQCS or
project superintendent will conduct weekly quality tours regardless and publish a weekly NCR Log for
ABC's work and subcontractor's work.
Responsibilities of ABC's PT are:
To promote ABC's ZDP
To explain ABC's ZDP to the owner, designers and subcontractors
To conduct a kick-off meeting with the owner, designers and subcontractors
To update the NCR Log weekly
To schedule and conduct weekly quality tours with the owner, designers and subcontractor
representatives
To be responsible for developing the initial punchlist for ABC's work, the so-called "pre-punchlist"
ABC's SQCS or project superintendent will make weekly quality tours. Quality tour members will be
comprised of representatives from the following organizations, as appropriate:
ABC
Owner
Designer Team, as applicable
Subcontractor Quality Representatives (SQR's)
Manufacturer or vendor representatives, where appropriate
After each quality tour, ABC's SQCS will issue a list of items deemed non-conforming to the project's
quality standards. These weekly NCR Logs will be distributed to all parties within 48 hours of each quality
tour. Each non-conforming item will be corrected within 7 calendar days after identification unless new
materials need to be ordered or the disposition of the non-conforming item has not been resolved by the
owner/designer. Upon completion of the corrective work, ABC's project superintendent shall advise the
SQCS that the corrected work can be re-inspected, photographed and the NCR Log updated.
3.9. Digital Photography Requirements
Photos are an integral part of each project-specific QMP. Every jobsite will be issued digital equipment to
insure a photographic record of construction progress and quality related issues are accomplished. ABC
requires progress photo documentation of as-built conditions during the course of construction. Although
it is not practical to photograph every inspected item, ABC's policy is to provide representative
photographic documentation for each Definable Feature of Work (DFW) or phase of a project. ABC's
digital photograph procedure covers both conforming and non-conforming work.

- 15 -
By taking photos on a frequent and regular basis and organizing them logically and labeling them
accurately, a complete pictorial record can be assembled post-construction that will document that ABC's
work and work by subcontractors conform to the contract documents.
ABC's digital photography guidelines:
Carry your camera with you at all times
Take digital photos on a regular intervals, at least daily
Make sure the auto date feature is turned on and that the date is accurate
Be sure to shoot from several viewpoints and use the same viewpoints everyday
Transfer photos to a computer on a regular basis
Photos should be filed chronologically in weekly folders and a duplicate image filed in the appropriate
topical folder, for example, conforming work, non-conformance item number, CSI section or sub-
section, etc.
If possible, label your photos within 24 hours to minimize inaccurate labels
If the scale of a photo will not be clear to others, include a tape measure or other object in the picture
for reference
Take a combination of wide-angle and close-up photos
Any photo of a non-conforming or punchlist item must have a corresponding photograph of the
conforming or acceptable work condition
Another technique for labeling is to use a small "white board" that is included in the photograph that
has a written description of the photograph
3.10. Pre-cover-up and Pre-closure Inspections and Photographs
This procedure uses a sign-off document and digital photographs to prove that all work that will be
covered-up or enclosed is shown to comply with project requirements. Remember: "prove your
innocence, not defend your guilt."
ABC's SQCS or project superintendent will inspect items that will be covered-up by a following operation.
ABC's SQCS or project superintendent will verify that all items are installed in accordance with the
construction documents before covering up. Photographs or videos of all work to be covered-up is a
mandatory requirement of ABC's SQCS or project superintendent. It is common for ABC to obtain
approval from an independent third party inspector or building code official written approval prior to
covering-up.
This procedure applies to floors, ceilings, walls, soffits and below ground work, such as, footings, stem
walls, basement walls, and below ground utilities.
A sample Pre-closure Inspection Form is included as Attachment 7.12.
This procedure requires about a 3-day inspection/documentation time period before closure or cover-up
can commence. ABC's SQCS or project superintendent or designee is responsible to implement and
enforce this procedure. The procedure works this way:
On day 1, the area to be enclosed or covered-up is walked by ABC's SQCS and each of the
subcontractor SQR's to assess completion and conformance with project requirements. Any and all
incomplete, unsatisfactory or non-conforming work is identified and photographed.
On day 1 or 2, responsible parties, ABC's crews and/or subcontractors, complete all incomplete,
unsatisfactory or non-conforming work. ABC's SQCS is notified by each subcontractor that their
work is now in conformance with project requirements. ABC's SQCS verifies and photographs the
conforming work that was corrected by ABC or subcontractors..
On day 2 or 3, ABC's SQCS walks the area with the owner, the architect, consultants and the building
code compliance inspector, as appropriate, to obtain their approval. Any incomplete, unsatisfactory
or non-conforming work is documented and photographed.
On day 3 or later, the process in the preceding paragraph above will be repeated and owner, architect,
consultant and building code compliance re-inspection will be conducted. If there is no incomplete,
unsatisfactory or non-conforming work, ABC's SQCS obtains the subcontractor's SCR's signature on
the Pre-closure Inspection Form (See Attachment 7.12.)
After the Pre-closure Inspection Form has been signed by all parties, ABC's SQCS takes overlapping
digital photographs or a video of every square foot of surface areas to covered-up or enclosed. These
photographs will be filed as an attachment to the signed Pre-closure Inspection Form.
After the digital photographs or videos have been taken, cover-up or enclosure work may now
commence.

- 16 -
3.11. Water Intrusion Prevention
3.11.1. Pre-construction
As part of the pre-construction process, the project superintendent, will review the project
specific materials list and the sequence of construction.
ABC will make a good faith effort to identify work practices, materials, or inadequate design
that may create or expose vulnerable materials to elevated moisture conditions during and after
construction. In general, the following factors may contribute to creating unsuitable
conditions. These should be evaluated during this stage:
Improper use of vulnerable materials that are exposed to high moisture conditions
Improper or inadequate design creating high moisture conditions
Improper design or construction critical building systems (i.e.; roof, exterior wall and
window systems) that compromises the building envelope and allows uncontrolled
moisture intrusion to occur.
Improper or inadequate mechanical systems that contribute to high moisture conditions
due to mechanical failures, or high relative humidity conditions
Improper construction sequencing that exposes the building or vulnerable materials to
high moisture conditions.
A list of the potentially problematic areas, work practices, and construction materials to be
considered during the pre-construction phase will be maintained by the home office and
periodically updated as additional items of concern are identified. ABC will maintain a log
of alternate construction materials that offer improved resistance to mold and moisture.
ABC's PM may either reference this log or confer with vendors when proposing the use of
alternate materials.
3.11.2. Construction Scheduling
Under most circumstances, ABC is responsible for creating the construction schedule and
scheduling subcontractor's activities. The development of this schedule typically is set based
on work-start dates and interim and final deadlines for completion. ABC's PT should attempt
to schedule work in order to prevent the building and vulnerable construction materials from
being exposed to high moisture conditions during construction.
Consideration must be given to the three distinct construction periods when evaluating the
potential for building and vulnerable construction materials being exposed to high moisture
conditions.
These include:
"Exposed Phase": This includes the period when all building materials are exposed to
precipitation, which typically includes framing and placing of concrete.
"Partially enclosed" Phase: This includes the period after the roof deck is installed but the
building is not fully weathered in. Typically, many vulnerable materials are installed during
this phase of construction.
"Enclosed Phase": This includes the phase when the building envelope and the roofing
system are complete and the interior finishes are being installed.
Whenever possible, the construction schedule will be developed so that vulnerable
materials are protected to the maximum extent possible and the building envelope is
completed prior to the installation of any interior finishes or other vulnerable materials.
3.11.3. Inspections During Construction
The project superintendent or SQCS will inspect the project site during construction and
document these inspections on the daily report. The site will be inspected to assure it is being
maintained in a manner to control water intrusion and to prevent mold growth. The
inspection frequency will be dependent on project conditions but at a minimum should be
completed every week (See Attachment 7.13 for an example of this Construction Site
Checklist.)
Inspections that are more frequent may be necessary during the following times:
Extended periods of inclement weather
Particular stages of work such as the installation of critical building envelope components
ABC's project superintendent or SQCS will document the inspections on the daily report and
these must be reviewed periodically and supplemented with any noteworthy project specific

- 17 -
information. This team member must identify "at risk" conditions, document any response
action required to correct any deficiencies and document the date and time the inspection was
completed.
3.11.4. Water Intrusion Plan and Procedure
It is ABC's policy to not only undertake all precautions, but also in the event of water
infiltration, to immediately remove any wet organic materials that have the potential of
mold growth.
The project schedule will be reviewed as to the start date of construction and the
start date of interior finishes as they relate to the region's cyclical wet weather
conditions and make recommendations as to the hazards associated with such
schedule conditions.
In low and mid-rise projects, depending upon the exterior facade materials, it may
be practical to install a screening on the exterior scaffolding, which will help in the
prevention of water intrusion into the building.
In high-rise projects whose exterior is a form of a prefabricated panel, the
schedule will be prepared so that the exterior skin can be erected in a sequence
that works with the structure sequence, allowing earlier enclosure of the facade at
the lower levels of the building. Pre-cast panels should be designed when
practical so that windows can be pre-glazed in the panels at the yard instead of on
site.
Additional floor protection will be utilized at specific strategic floors at shaft
openings and other slab penetrations, such as sealing openings, providing
temporary dams around openings, as field conditions dictate.
Providing temporary roofing, or first layer of roofing, should be installed as soon
as practical.
Drains must be tied in at all possible locations from the roof down through the
building to drain rain water as soon as practical
4. Post-construction Quality Activities
Post-construction/Turnover quality activities start shortly before construction and will be completed and continue
through the warranty period established by the contract documents.
4.1 Warranty
ABC's standard warranty program (1 year) provides for a single point of contact for all warranty
requests. Typically, this will be ABC's PM.
ABC's warranty program will log warranty call-back requests, differentiating between maintenance and
warranty matters and ensuring prompt response by ABC or its subcontractors to warranty issues
during the warranty period.
All warranty costs will be tracked with a requirement that there will be closure to each issue.
Depending on subcontract requirements, ABC may be requested to participate in an inspection of its
work 11 months after the date of acceptance.
4.2 Warranty Call-backs during the Warranty Period
ABC will endeavor to satisfy the warranty and post-construction issues of its customers during the
contractual warranty period in accordance with the specific terms and conditions of the Owner/ABC
construction contract.
ABC will respond to a warranty call-backs within 72 hours, 5 days per week, and requires similar
responsiveness on the part of its subcontractors.
It is ABC's goal to resolve each warranty call within 30 days after receiving a warranty call-back
request and requires a similar commitment on the part of all subcontractors.
4.3 Warranty Call-backs after the Warranty Period
Although once the warranty period has expired and potentially responsible subcontractors and
suppliers may no longer be under a contractual obligation to respond, it is nevertheless ABC's goal to
try to resolve all such complaints if it is commercially feasible. Proactive customer service at this stage
can be a huge company differentiator.
ABC's policy is to respond to complaints that are received after the contractual warranty period has
expired as follows:

- 18 -
ABC will receive the call and complete a site visit and preliminary investigation of the complaint
as appropriate for the issue.
There will be no charge to the owner for this site visit or preliminary investigation.
ABC will provide the complaining party with a written summary of its findings, including one or
more possible avenues for resolving the complaint.
ABC may offer to resolve the complaint at its own cost, or discounted cost, or at market rate,
depending on the facts and circumstances.
ABC will not proceed with any work without written authorization from the complaining party or
other potentially responsible parties.
4.4 Resulting Damage
ABC will not repair any resultant damage or repairs necessitated by an incident (such as a leak in a
building) regardless of whether the incident has occurred before or after the warranty has expired.
The building owner may submit an insurance claim to its carrier.
ABC's efforts will focus on identifying and resolving the underlying issue concerning construction.
4.5 Post-construction Documentation
Quality records will be filed in an indexed, retrievable fashion. These records will become part of the
project's permanent records. Record storage facilities will be such that records are protected from loss,
fire, and flood.
Permanent quality records include:
Daily reports
Inspection reports
Test reports and logs
Inspecting technician's certifications, as applicable
As-built drawings (sometimes called record drawings)
Approved submittals
Quality audit reports
Certifications of materials
Non-conformance reports (NCR's) and records of related remedial work and acceptance
Photo and video documentation
Radiographic film, as applicable
Required records of personnel qualifications, as applicable
Results of miscellaneous tests, inspections and examinations performed by any responsible party
Special process procedures, as applicable
Final inspections
Final system testing, as applicable
Commission reports, as applicable
Operation and Maintenance (O&M) Manuals
Training of owner personnel
Warranties
Copies of City/County Inspection Cards
Copies of Certificates of Occupancy from building officials

Total Quality Management (TQM): a term initially coined by the Naval Air Systems Command to
describe its Japanese style management approach to quality improvement. Since then, TQM has taken on
many meanings. Simply put, it is a management approach to long-term success through customer
satisfaction. TQM is based on the participation of all members of an organization in improving processes,
products, services and the culture in which they work. The methods for implementing this approach are
found in the teachings of such quality leaders as Philip B. Crosby, W. Edwards Deming, Armand V.
Feigenbaum, Kaoru Ishikawa and Joseph M. Juran.
Vendor: supplier of materials, supplies or equipment.
Warranty Period: warranty period for a project including equipment, components and systems. Warranty
begins at agreed substantial completion and extends for at least one year, unless specifically noted otherwise
in the contract documents and accepted submittals.
