A quality framework is an integrated approach aimed at maintaining quality of a certain process or domain in the construction sector, in which a number of aspects of the process are made measurable and traceable. There are currently quality frameworks for air tightness tests, ventilation reporting and post-insulation of cavity walls.
A quality framework combines, in a single system, different aspects of quality control of products, processes, organization, resources and competence of persons. This highly improves risk management. Quality frameworks are used:
After having proven to meet the requirements of a quality framework, a company can then by itself draw up a declaration of conformity about the executed work and hand it over to its customer.
The methodology depends on the process and the quality goals aimed for, but always consists of three phases.
Ensure that the company carries out the process with suitable products, competent personnel, appropriate resources, a good organisation, and so forth.
The company executing the process uploads into a central database, for every construction site, data and documents regarding planning and execution of works.
The company is randomly controlled through on-site inspections and/or desktop controls.
The quality requirements for a process and the manner of controlling that these requirements have been met, are fixed in consultation with the stakeholders from the sector. A quality framework may need to include, amongst others:
You can submit a request via the contact form. We will then inform you of the conditions for participation. Depending on the quality framework, we organise certification, acceptance processes, exams, etc. Random on-site or desktop controls will be carried out, in accordance with the rules of the quality framework. These different methods of control are used to check whether the requirements of the quality framework are met during the execution of your activities.
