Quality is a must in every construction project, no matter size, types of projects, or complexity. It appears in two primary aspects of the project: in the value, serviceability, and appropriateness of all components, and in the processes that design and install them. If the process can be made uniform, efficient, repetitive, foreshortened, and, in short, better, through quality management efforts, the cost of the total project will be decreased. For the construction industry, implementing ISO 9001:2000 Quality Systems can complement and spur the industry towards adopting innovative and efficient construction technology and practices in order that projects can be completed within a stated period of time and with less wastage, giving adequate consideration to quality and safety requirement’s as well as giving due regard to the environmental and aesthetic aspects.
