It can be used to check previous reports to ensure that they have been closed out correctly and to check the frequency of the items reoccurring. If there is a QA system in place you may wish for compliance with the procedure to be checked or compliance with the specification.

There tends to be three aspects to the triangle of completing work. Time, cost and quality and in that order. We can advise strategies to maintain quality without impacting on the time, and remaining cost effective. Whilst the architect is responsible for the design and the drawings are checked by Building Control, items are often incorrectly designed, specified or difficult to build. These three things contribute to defects on site. Even where things are simple to construct, contractors often fail to follow guidance or drawings to provide the product that is required.
