Quality Control (QC) Process
Quality Control (QC) is vital to the success of Wiles Architects. Each member of our project team understands their role and expected duties and displays the initiative to stay committed to providing a product that is consistent and accurate. Our goal as a Team is to attain precision in all that we do. We achieve this goal by learning from our previous experiences through documentation. The documentation is attained through a formal review process that utilizes plan checklists for reviewing our plans prior to any submittal. These reviews will typically take place just before the:
Schematic Design Phase Submission
Design Development Phase Submission
25% Construction Documents Submission
75% Construction Documents Submission
100% Construction Documents Submission
Typically, these reviews will be scheduled two weeks prior to a major submittal date. This will allow for up to one week for review and discussion and one week for redlines to be corrected and the plans plotted for submittal. The Project Manager will be responsible for enforcing the timelines to assure that the quality reviews take place.
