Cortland Partners' Quality Control Finishes Specialists are responsible for managing and performing the daily quality control responsibilities of specific Cortland Partners projects to ensure the project is constructed in accordance with the established minimum standards. The Quality Control Finishes Specialist role includes direct oversight and review of the entire documentation and physical inspection phase of the work flow process and working with other in-house personnel (e.g.: Project Managers, Superintendents, etc.) and external personnel to produce and document a quality product. The QC Finishes Specialist reports directly to Cortland Partners’' Vice President of Construction for the sake of assuring that a conflict of interest does not occur among the productivity, schedule, and the quality objectives of the project.

 

It is the role of the Quality Control Finishes Specialist to perform all of the major QC activities required to construct the project at hand and to provide in a timely manner the written documentation described in each project's specific contract documents as follows:

  • Create, update and maintain the project submittal log and all other project specific quality control reports
  • Review shop drawings and submittals for conformance with project specifications by direct review and by leveraging the knowledge and experience of others in the project team when necessary
  • Chair and document weekly QC meetings with the superintendent and provide written minutes as described in project specific contract documents
  • Provide written daily QC reports that reinforce activities that are being constructed in conformance with each specific project's established standard and constructively confronts non-conformances to produce the desired outcome in a timely manner
  • Conduct preparatory, initial and follow-up meetings to establish an understanding of the standards of care desired for each definable feature of work. Verify that checklists are being used and signed off prior to the placement of concrete, steel and other similar items of work
  • Verify and document that all materials received for the project are in conformance with the approved submittal, are handled and stored appropriately and are acceptable for use in the project
  • Conduct preconstruction meetings with new and existing subcontractors and the superintendent at least two days prior to the start of each new phase of the work to discuss issues that affect quality. Document these meetings in the daily QC report and Preparatory Phase reports
  • Schedule, document the results of, and maintain a log of all code and independent inspections that are required. Clearly document, correct and re-inspect all non-conformances prior to covering up work
  • Conduct periodic follow-up inspections to verify that work is proceeding with the contract documents and the approved submittals. (Desired results come from what is inspected, not what is expected.)
  • Coordinate and document the testing and commissioning of building systems
  • Document and distribute pre-punch lists, punch lists and the completion of these lists
  • Document final inspections, certificates of occupancy and acceptance of the works and various phases thereof
  • Maintain the project "as-built" drawings on a daily basis
