1. Quality control Engineer:

Quality control engineer shall be responsible for quality control; Quality control is responsible for quality verification during application. This includes physical inspection of field work performed. The quality control engineer reports directly to the Buildex project manager.

Quality control shall have the following responsibilities:

  1. Perform site quality verification inspection.
  2. Prepare site quality documentation and maintenance of QC records.
  3. Perform periodic inspections during significant stages of the work.
  4. Control of measuring and testing equipment program.
  5. Administer the nonconforming material control systems.
  6. Initiate stop work orders when necessary.
  7. Identify quality problems, initiate corrective actions, recommended solutions, coordinate and take lead where appropriate.

    2. Quality assurance

Quality control engineer is responsible for assuring that the specified quality has been achieved. Application installation (including field fabrication and repair) and testing activities will be inspected to assure conformance with the standards mentioned in the scope of work.

The QC will review the work scheduled for those activities requiring inspection and tests, and then identifies the inspection and test criteria, including the applicable codes and standards.

Below some of the items usually considered for preplanning:

  1. Approved procedures, drawings and instructions are available for inspections and test as work is being performed.
  2. Qualified personnel are available as required.
  3. Equipment and tools are properly calibrated and correctly employed.
  4. Inspections and tests are performed in the proper sequence.
  5. Proper approvals for repairs and rework activities are obtained.

Inspections and tests are implemented by qualified personnel independent of application. Daily inspections will be performed using the established inspection criteria, approved documents, drawings, specifications, codes and standards.

QC personnel will insure that surfaces are prepared, and correct mixing of materials has been achieved as per manufacturers’ instructions, prior to installation, after approval from main contractor representative (Project manager, QC engineer, site engineer …etc) has been obtained.

Further random inspections will be performed by the manufacturer during significant stages of the work to insure and verify correct application procedure as per method of statement.

Inspection shall take place under lighting conditions equivalent to actual installed lighting, as appropriate.

QC personnel will coordinate with main contractor QC or site engineer and arrange for joint inspections. All inspection activities will be documented, including non-conforming items.

  3. Non-Conforming items

When work is found not meeting the scope of work requirements, QC will provide the means to document and provide resolution.

Immediate correction:

Items that are deficient and can be immediately reworked and corrected will be documented. Quality control engineer will re-inspect for conformance with scope of work requirements and document inspection results. The corrective action taken and the results of the re-inspection will be documented.

Not immediately corrected:

Items that are deficient to the scope of work requirements, which are not immediately corrected will be brought to the attention of the quality control engineer, documented and passed through to the appropriate main contractor authority.

When a deficiency has been identified, the QC will provide an appropriate means of resolution, which may include rework, repair, use as is, or scrap.

The main contractor will be notified on the means of resolution, once approved, corrective action will be implemented. Upon completion of corrective measures, the QC will inspect and document the action implemented and verify that the work has been satisfactory performed.
