Materials & Process Quality Control in Construction

Inadequacy and non-conformance with the required standards of construction materials will result to poor quality works, thereby compromising safety and durability. It is therefore essential that materials undergo strict quality testing and control. This will ensure the efficient implementation of the construction project, since costly delays brought about by substandard materials and improper testing and sampling procedures will be avoided. Knowledge of testing procedures and quality assurance measures is therefore needed to ensure the attainment of a systematic and satisfactory construction work that will conform to the desired standards and performance criteria.
