Quality in the construction industry can be defined as the attainment of acceptable levels of performance from construction activities. This performance would be attained when
the activity meets or exceeds the requirement of the client or the owner. The quality of any product or service is achieved when it conforms to the desired specifications. Achieving quality in the construction industry, in the long run, is a tough issue and has been a problem. Inefficient or no practice of quality management procedures will result in great loss of time, money, material, resources. For example, in a construction site, the designer would specify a particular grade of concrete. The contractor will use the
ingredients of the concrete such that the desired grade of concrete is obtained.

CONTROL (QC) IN YOUR CONSTRUCTION PROJECT
Quality control in construction involves periodic inspection of the construction activities and facilities in order to meet the desired standardization as per the contract. Quality Control is undergone by a team of QC engineers or specially trained teams. For example, the quality control for compaction work conducted for highway projects is performed by measuring the soil density. The slump test helps in determining the workability of the concrete. Quality assurance forms a scheme for good management of construction activities while quality control undergoes inspection or sampling processes. Quality control focuses on:
1. Setting and Practicing specific standards for construction
2. Determining the deviations from the standards
3. Bringing and taking corrective measures to reduce variation
4. Standard Improvement with time
