Construction Quality Planning Tool
Learning from manufacturing to improve quality assurance.
Quality assurance is about producing something exactly as it has been designed. Manufacturing has been standardising quality assurance for decades, which is why the Construction Innovation Hub looked to the automotive industry as inspiration for its new assurance framework. The result is the Construction Quality Planning tool which builds in assurance checks and measures from the very start, and makes sure that manufacturing-led construction projects are handed over with confidence that they have been built as designed. The framework helps shift the industry from a culture of quality control and defect-checking, to one of defect prevention - helping increase productivity and leading to a better quality built environment.
