Quality Assurance vs. Quality Control - How to deliver green building projects that are truly sustainable...

The biggest threat to sustainable design and construction is quality. Our current best practices for managing quality are based on the concept of “quality control,” which is reactive; as opposed to “quality assurance,” which is proactive. Decades of construction defect claims and litigation have resulted in layers of contractual provisions and insurance exclusions that amount to little more than a prevailing attitude of, “It’s Not My Fault!” In order for the promise of sustainability in the built environment to be fully realized, everyone involved in a project (designers, contractors, stakeholders, etc.) must take responsibility for quality.
