Quality assurance (QA) is a way of preventing mistakes and defects occurring in a building during construction and is focused on providing confidence that quality requirements will be fulfilled.
This defect prevention in quality assurance differs subtly from defect detection and rejection in a Quality Control (QC) program.
Quality assurance comprises administrative and procedural activities implemented in a quality system so that requirements and goals for a construction project will be fulfilled.
Quality assurance includes two key principles:
"Fit for purpose" The building should be suitable for the intended purpose
“Right first time" The avoidance of costly mistakes
QA includes management of the quality of raw materials, assemblies, products and components, services related to construction management and inspection processes.
