Abstract:

Most job specifications include a section on quality assurance, but you'll find that the requirements in masonry specifications vary widely and that few include everything that should be there.

The purpose of the project quality assurance program is to assure the owner and the architect/engineer that the materials and workmanship will meet or exceed the requirements of the specification. Quality is subjective. The specification's job is to define quality on a project.

QA, quality assurance, defines the program that will assure quality; QC, quality control, evaluates the quality through testing and inspection. QA is a management tool; QC is a production tool.

Depending on complexity of the program, QA will vary, but every QA program should include a few basic components. The Commentary on Building Code Requirements and ACI 121, Quality Assurance Systems for Concrete Construction, provide good guidelines.

The QA program must clearly define the responsibilities. The MSJC Specification lists the services and duties of three parties: the testing agency, the inspection agency, and the contractor.

The QA program should describe the methods used to design the building and provide details of the design reviews: who is responsible for reviews and approvals.
