INSPECTION MANAGEMENT SERVICES
Given today’s economic environment, many builders and property related industries are reexamining their approach to managing inspections. Outsourcing inspection management is a cost effective solution that provides sophisticated, efficient, scalable systems for a fraction of the cost of developing and maintaining an internal program. This is particularly true when the inspection process is not a part of a company’s core competencies.
The successful orchestration and implementation of any inspection management services contract requires a technologically advanced, detailed-oriented, and experienced firm like Quality Built. Quality Built® has successfully managed many inspection programs on a national scale. We have been the preferred QA management system provider for insurance carriers and major builders across the country for over 15 years. We have managed property inspections on over 6,000 commercial projects and 350,000 homes in the last 10 years alone.
Our inspection management services include planning, organizing, staffing, directing, controlling and measuring results. Quality Built will work with you to define your goals, identify integration points and develop work flow processes and procedures specific to your needs. Compliance and internal QA metrics will be identified to measure effectiveness and reporting standards established. Full implementation can range between 48 hours and 90 days depending on the requirements and complexity.
NEXT GENERATION OF QUALITY ASSURANCE®
As the innovative leader in construction quality assurance, Quality Built® has done it again. By partnering with A+ rated insurance companies, warranty companies, and exceptional industry experts, we have broken all traditional barriers and created our Next Generation of Quality Assurance Guaranteed.
Quality Built’s Next Generation of Quality Assurance Guaranteed program provides our clients with a single source, fully integrated, customized risk management process that is specifically designed to substantially transfer liability and back-end warranty obligations, and reduce costs for General Liability (GL) Insurance, Third-Party Quality Assurance (QA), Wrap Administration, Warranty Protection and Third-Party Claims Administration.
Quality Built will coordinate all insurance, claim, quality assurance services, documentation and administration – from pre-construction through the end of the statutory period of repose. By using a one-stop-shop for comprehensive Quality Assurance Guaranteed services, builders can maximize sustainable long-term profitability. Funding past liabilities with future profits and reserving 1% for warranty issues will become a thing of the past when we eliminate the hassles of audits, contract administration, customer complaints, lawsuits, QA/AC compliance, self insured retention funding, trade contractor accountability, product tracking and warranty services.
Unquestionably, the Next Generation of Quality Assurance Guarantee is the most comprehensive quality assurance risk management program ever introduced for builders and developers.
PRODUCT AND MATERIALS INVENTORY MANAGEMENT
Our ProductLink® services are a way of effectively implementing a Quality Assurance and Products and Materials Inventory Management Plan. Specific materials, products and appliances will be registered as they are installed on your project via ProductLink®. No longer will builders be unable to quantify and track defective or recalled products, such as Chinese Drywall.
Quality Built® will work with your project’s trade contractors and suppliers to obtain specific information such as origin, make, model and serial number, where applicable, and record where those products and materials are installed. This process allows for quantification of products, materials and appliances, so as to facilitate repair, replacement, warranty recalls or alerts of defective, deficient and/or hazardous products and/or materials as new information becomes available in the marketplace.
QB BUILDER LINK® - CLIENT USE INTERNAL QA PROGRAM SOLUTION
QB Builder Link®, a proprietary advanced data collection and reporting software system, is based on the very same checkpoints used to conduct over 500,000 Quality Built® inspections. QB Builder Link is the most cost effective and efficient way to implement a quality assurance program to minimize construction defects and reduce customer service claims.
QB Builder Link is designed to easily integrate with your existing procedures to document good quality building practices as well as create electronic “punch lists” of open items needing correction. QB Builder Link may be customized to follow your schedule and will prompt simple but important quality metrics that help educate the user and verify compliance. Checkpoints may be selected from one of our standardized templates or customized based upon your own standards. Combined with our third party virtual inspections and technical support, QB Builder Link becomes a powerful quality assurance and documentation program at a fraction of the cost of traditional third-party inspections.
Although each program will be customized to fit the specific needs of the builder, typical programs usually integrate some level of the following:
- QB Builder Link Software
- QB Product Link Software
- Ultra-Mobile or Tablet PC per project
- QB Data and Photo Review (Third-Party Virtual Inspections)
