Building a Culture of Quality Control

February 23, 2022

One of the main goals of all construction projects is to ensure construction projects are completed using quality standards within the industry and in accordance with contract documents.  However, issues often times arise when parties deviate from those industry standards or the contract documents. One of the best ways to combat this is to develop and implement quality control plans into your projects.  The questions that then arise are: how do I do this, where do I start, and how do you ensure compliance with such plans?  On this episode, Walter Haass, Vice President and Director of Risk Management at Hudson Meridian joins the show to discuss his passion for building a culture of quality control.  This episode touches on the evolution of quality control within the construction industry, development of quality control plans, and risk management. From there and drawing on his experience, Walter shares insights into how contractors can best implement quality control plans, lessons learned, and how to undertake getting all parties to buy-in and comply with the plans to ensure satisfactory completion of construction projects.
