For each contract, Fairwater will require written quality control (QC) plans to ensure the quality of our products and services. The QC plans will address all QC requirements for each phase of work.

Integration of QC into the planning stage and program reviews allows early identification of risks to the entire project team, and allows development of a mitigation plan rather than simply responding to immediate issues. Risk identification includes ensuring that skilled experienced personnel are assigned for specific tasks, qualified subcontractors are in place and task specific plans are prepared and communicated to all project team members so that the goals and objectives are clearly understood.  Fairwater’s integration of quality practices into all phases of work allows ready implementation of innovative practices.
