The primary purpose of this CQCP is to provide a self-inspection system which allows AI Andalus Company the contractor responsible for performance of the work, to ensure all construction is performed in accordance with contract requirements and approved plan sand specifications.
The CQC program will include a three phase control program which will be implemented prior to initiating each work activity and remain in effect throughout its duration. The three phase control program includes a:
- preparatory phase
- an initial phase
- follow-up phase
Test performed in our work should be matching to the following standards unless otherwise required by the consultant or the resident engineer:
- ACl 121R-98(Quality Management System for concrete Construction)
- ASTM C 1077-03 (Standard Practice for Laboratories Testing Concrete and Concrete aggregates for use in Construction and Criteria for Laboratory Evaluation).
- ASTM C 1093-95 (Standard Practice for Accreditation of testing Agencies for unit Masonry)
- ASTM D 3666-03 (Standard specification for Minimum Requirements for Agencies Testing and Inspecting Road and Paving Materials)
- ASTM D 3740-01 (Standard Practice for Minimum Requirements for Agencies Engaged in the Testing and/or Inspection of soil and Rock as Used in Engineering Design and Construction).
- ASTM E 329-03 (Standard Specification for Agencies Engaged in the Testing and/or Inspection of Materials Used in Construction)
- AASHTO(American Standard specifications for Asphalt, Road Construction ,transportation)
Included in the CQC program are completion inspections to be conducted at the completion of each work activity, safety inspections and daily CQC program meetings. A discussion on the components of the three phase program, completion inspections, safety inspections, and the daily CQC program meetings is presented below.
We will communicate this quality policy to our employees and ensure that it is understood and followed, and, we will periodically review this quality policy and quality objectives for their continuing suitability and ensure that the are consistent with the purpose our work.
3.1 PREPARATORY PIHASE
In this phase we need to perform the following tests before starting the work:
- Tests for the concrete materials used in the work; that means tests for sand, gravel and sulphate resisting cement.
- Rest must also conducted for the water used in concrete mix.
- Tensile and elongation tests for the reinforcement used in reinforced concrete works.
- Testing for soil in the subgrade of roads and structures.
- Tests for sub base materials used for construction; type A, type B. One test for 1500 cu.m of stock materials.
- Tests for masonary units used in work; compressive strength.
The preparatory phase of the three phase control program will be implemented prior to beginning any work on any feature of work activity. This phase includes providing KBR’s Contracting Officer Representative and KBR’s Quality Assurance Representative with a preparatory inspection tests, scheduling a preparatory phase conference during which a preparatory inspection will be conducted.
We assure that approval and acceptance of any test or work by KBR doesn’t relieve us from the responsibility of assuring total management of each activity of work. The preparatory inspection outline will provide KBR’s Representatives with the work activity which will be inspected and a Preparatory inspection Report Form.
