COST AND QUALITY MANAGEMENT

There are many areas in the initiation and completion of a poject, where lack of quality can escalate cost unless the owner, designer and contractor clearly understand the pitfalls to avoid. Such pitfalls can occur in property acquisition and relocation, planning and engineering, cost of financing, utility relocation and services, construction, and maintenance and operation. The design professional's scope of work can have significant effect on any of these areas. A good quality management program that includes all aspects of the design professional's involvement in the project is the most effective way to achieve the desired results. This paper discusses some of the considerations and approaches that can be used to manage both the cost and the quality of projects.
