What steps do you take during construction to ensure quality?

Poor quality in the finished product is the direct result of mistakes made during the construction process. Due to the uniqueness and high variability between projects mistakes are a fact of life in construction; the challenge is finding and correcting them before they are buried. Working with highly-qualified subcontractors minimizes mistakes, but doesn’t eliminate them permanently. One way Fulcrum addresses this is through a series of pre-installation meetings. As an example, before a concrete floor slab is placed, a meeting is held with the earthwork contractor, concrete contractor and any contractor that has penetrations or utilities in the floor. Dimensions are reviewed, materials and products are confirmed and the overall quality of the work in place is evaluated before the floor is released to the concrete subcontractor. Meetings such as this take place at every critical hand-off, ensuring our mistakes are corrected, not buried.
