Quality Control

To ensure a quality product, all KC team members have successfully completed the USACE’s Construction Quality Management course that is based around the USACE three-phase QC approach. We have developed innovative features in our Quality Control Plan (QCP) to help our field offices flourish in their projects, including monthly comprehensive QC auditing, monthly QC deficiency tracking, job-site QC graded auditing, and our online QC Corner, which we use to continuously solidify our QCP. Our field offices use this tool to maintain a level of quality that our clients expect.
The KC Team is committed to the continuous improvement of our QCP. Quality, if not “designed in” is more difficult to achieve in the field, therefore, we spend the time and effort during design, making sure it’s right before the construction crews arrive on site. The QCP consists of pre-planning, inspections, reviews, and approvals by KC will ensure all work is in compliance with the contract requirements. While all members of our team have responsibility for quality control, the overall management of the QC program will be led by KC's designated Quality Control Manager(QCM). The QCM will report directly to our management team, not to the on-site project manager or superintendent. During the design phase, the QCM will lead in the review of the design while supported by the project manager. Once construction begins, our QCM will be assisted by QC specialists for civil, structural, mechanical and electrical work, as well as independent testing labs as needed.
The KC Team believes doing things right the first time is our duty to our client and just part of the way we do business. We always ensure the appropriate allocation of resources to the project to maintain this commitment. The results have proven to save our clients money, operate more efficiently, and mitigate potential project issues from occurring. Understanding the needs of the end users on each project and tailoring our existing QC program will ensure we deliver a quality project, on time, every time.
