BBGS applies the three-phase method for quality control as designed by the US Army Corps of Engineers (USACE). This ensures that the quality standards of planning and execution are in line with customer specifications and expectations.
1. Preparatory phase
In this phase, all materials that will be installed during construction are selected and approved in advance in a sampling process with coordination with the customer. Necessary tests, which later verify the required quality of the execution, are already determined at this phase. As a rule, contractors perform this phase by means of a preparatory meeting between the site manager, the quality manager and the subcontractor carrying out the work.
2. Start phase (initial phase)
This phase begins directly with the start of the respective work or the first appearance of the subcontractor on the construction site. Contractors discuss once again the already defined work processes, approved materials, and necessary tests. In this phase, contractors can still correct impending errors in the execution and costly corrective measures are thus prevented.
3. Implementation phase (follow-up phase)
In the ongoing process of execution, contractors make constant checks to ensure that they perform the works in accordance with the discussed and defined specifications, and that the completed work has been checked against the planned tests.
