Ichijo, USA - Honored to Be Nominated for the Risk Assessment Award at the QB Builder Awards for 2017
Fort Lauderdale, FL (Feb. 08, 2018) – Ichijo is one of the largest builders in Japan and has built over 100,000 homes. They are focused on developing homes that use natural materials which provide healthy living environments with cutting-edge technology at the core of their craftsmanship. Ichijo is determined to have the right materials built into their homes. So much, that if they are not able to find what they are looking for, they will build it themselves in their factories in the Philippines (products include cabinets, doors, windows and floor heating panels).
Ichijo has received several awards from highly accredited firms which validate their true commitment to quality, design and energy efficient building. On January 9, 2018, Ichijo, USA was recognized for being nominated for the 2017 Quality Built (QB) Risk Assessment award. Being nominated for this award is a true honor, as Ichijo is one of Quality Built’s newest members on their third-party inspection Risk Assessment program. Ichijo came in close to the award winners, Beazer® Homes - Virginia, and Shea Homes® - North Carolina - Trilogy® Lake Norman, who have both been part of QB’s program for several years and are well-versed in the system.
What is Involved in Risk Assessment Inspections?
Risk Assessments account for common construction risks based on a statistical sampling of various construction stages and systems for gauging and measuring the overall risk exposure associated with a builder. During an RA, Quality Built surveys site conditions and construction performance, highlights areas of greatest need, and provides the builder with a measurement tool for insurance risk and performance grading. Builders can then utilize this information to make informed decisions about training and quality assurance protocols to avoid risk.
Each of Quality Built’s clients that have integrated risk assessments into their QA program have approached the system in their own unique way. This is because their business model, geographic location, scope of work, etc. all vary.
