QUALITY ASSURANCE PROGRAMME
A pre-construction site meeting is held with the owner, council inspector, project manager and specialist consultant to discuss the proposed works.
A quality assurance programme will be submitted as part of the building consent application and its acceptance will mean that it forms part of the building consent documentation.
The purpose of a quality assurance programme is to confirm that all building work has been carried out in accordance with the consented plans and most importantly a high standard of re-cladding work is carried out.
There are a number of specialist inspections that are required and are additional to the standard council inspections. The inspection schedule is:
- Pre-construction site meeting.
- Strip-off inspection.
- Remedial works inspection.
- Pre-wrap, nib, wall/cavity, substrate, insulation, fire-rating and painting inspections.
- Cladding inspection.
- Final inspection.
The inspection schedule must take place in order for the home owner to receive their code compliance certificate (CCC).
