Best practice defect management reporting is vital for any construction business. Improving quality control is a given. But it also helps you make better management decisions on current and future projects.
Managing quality on construction projects is critical to project and business success. You’re only as good as your last job. A single bad job can undermine your reputation – sometimes beyond repair. There are many adverse consequences of poor quality construction. Some are quantifiable in monetary terms. Yet most are intangible and very challenging to recover from.
The construction industry views quality control as a critical business function. Volumes of policy, procedure, forms and templates prove this. Quality policies and procedure effect all aspects of the construction process. From design and procurement through to handover. Their focus is on-site inspections performed in the latter stages of a project. Such quality processes give rise to punch lists.
Generating a punch list is a time consuming but critical quality process. But look beyond how you generate punch lists. Focus on the next critical feature of your defect management processes. How to best report the data collected during quality inspections to project stakeholders. You can get efficiencies and encourage better and more effective cross stakeholder collaboration. The solution starts with best practice defect management reporting.
