RAMP – Quality Assurance Approach
Conley Group utilizes a thorough, efficient approach to QA/QC: Quality Assurance-Quality control. To ensure that project or program services are implemented and performed in accordance with the contract requirements, Conley Group’s QA/QC process incorporates the following key procedures:
- Single Point of Contact – the Senior Staff member (Senior Architect/Engineer) oversees the project from kick-off to close-out. Conley Group understands the necessity of communication; it is our responsibility to be the “eyes and ears” for our clients.
- Appointed Task Managers – We utilize task managers for each major discipline in order to provide supervision of task activities for each delivery order.
- Knowledgeable & Technically Competent Staff – We pride ourselves in the utilization of in-house personnel in conjunction with highly competent subconsultants in their respective discipline with full knowledge of the scope of services required, as well as experience with the type of services the contract outlines.
- NCARB, AIA, PE, LEED, RWO, RRO
- Periodic Reviews – Our team conducts periodic status review meetings with the individual task managers to review the status of open delivery orders, and to ensure on-time completion of the required services at each phase of the project.
- Subsequent Checkpoint – A secondary quality control review of all work is conducted by an experienced Senior staff member, who is uninvolved in the actual project, to assess technical application and document content. A formal final review and seal of drawings is conducted by a licensed Architect/Engineer/Principal.
