"Quality is never an accident; it is always the result of high intention, sincere effort, intelligent direction and skillful execution; it represents the wise choice of many alternatives."
William A. Foster

Quality is defined as 'fitness to purpose'; CCSI strives to provide results that exceed the required contract quality for the purpose for which it is intended. Our trained team of Quality Control Managers are present on every project. All CCSI Project Superintendents and Project Managers must maintain a certification from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers for Construction Quality Management for Contractors.
Quality control at Carter’s Contracting Services Inc. can be looked at as
having three elements:
■ To produce results that best satisfies the client and user
■ To produce results where quality is the best value for the available cost
■ To produce results with exceptional quality within a timely manner
Like most other aspects of construction, management quality control has to be planned. Planning seeks 'order' and a quality control system for a construction project reflects this sense of order.
It may be seen to be in five basic stages:
■ Setting the quality goal
■ Planning construction methods specific to the project to achieve that goal
■ Constructing the quality results properly – the first time
■ Correcting any quality deficiencies immediately
■ Providing long term quality control
Design/Build Quality Assurance (QA)
Quality assurance is a mechanism for ensuring that the construction process takes place within the framework of a quality management system. CCSI management promotes the tasks and duties for implementing superior quality management. CCSI persistently monitors all documents throughout the design process and conducts constructability reviews to eliminate as many issues as possible, before construction ever starts. Because of our vast experience with different building materials, we can reduce the occurrence of using inferior building materials and ultimately save the owner money for replacement costs caused by premature material deterioration.
Quality Assurance during Design Process:
■ Have a clear understanding of what the client actually expects before the design begins.
■ Clearly understand the client's expectations of quality standards
■ Elevate the level of co-ordination between all the project designers.
■ Provide tightly detailed and project appropriate specifications.
■ Provide a design with a high amount of failure prevention effort.
Quality Assurance During Construction:
■ Build strictly to the approved construction documents.
■ Provide high quality and experienced supervision to promote superior workmanship.
■ Provide the best management of the quality of construction.
■ Eliminate potential QA problems many clients may have experienced in the past.
■ Provide quality inspections and high quality testing services.
■ Complete the project per the approved project schedule.
■ Leave the project with a satisfied owner and the assurance that they made the right decision allowing Carter’s Contracting Services Inc. to construct their project.
