  • Review, approve and PE stamp all final drawings



QA/QC will ensure that the work is performed in quality manner in accordance with the specifications and project documents.  The QAQC Manager will put in place procedures and guidelines to be followed by the project staff in order to deliver an excellent quality product. 


Quality Assurance (QA)

PBS will undertake those actions, procedures and methods necessary to observe and assure prudent quality controls are developed, implemented and are effective.  QA personnel are responsible for inspecting, observing and reviewing those processes as they are being carried out to ensure that they are being followed, and that they are effective in producing consistent quality products. Some of the QA requirements for the installation portion of the project may include:

  • Design Control
  • Materials Control
  • Inspection and Test
  • Inspection, Measuring and Test Equipment
  • Inspection and Test Status
  • Nonconforming Material
  • Engineering Change Control
  • Record Keeping
  • Qualification of Personnel
  • Quality Assurance Procedures


Quality Control (QC) 

PBS will develop methods and procedures, which will be routinely employed at the project level, within the technical disciplines (design, permitting and construction), to produce the desired result of quality product and services.  QC is implemented through the development and implementation of those procedures through visual inspection of the work activity, audits, measurements or checking of results at defined intervals, and if necessary, performing independent testing to verify results.
