QCC - Quality Control in Construction provides clients high level QA management advice and mentoring, including technical,construction and contractual advice and staff training. QCC also offers trade based compliance and forensic audit reporting of project consultants, contractors,sub-contractors,suppliers and manufacturers.      

This service is offered to government agencies during the pre-construction and construction phases of public funded major projects in the State of Victoria, Australia.

In the area of compliance audits, QCC's audits reveal the stakeholder's (auditee's) level of contractual compliance at scheduled points on the project program.These monthly contractor/trade based audits and the conclusions drawn are offered to the project owner prior to the issue of any project progress payment.

The audits focus upon the verification and validation of trade package implementation,the validation of consultant inspection reporting, the application of trade based inspection test plans and any suspect subcontractor and or contractor programming activities.

The audit program, the audits and the reported observations encourage stakeholders' contractual compliance and discourage ambit claims and project litigation.

The audits and the reported observations give the project owner real-time project information that target the achieved trade quality in any one reporting period.It also reveals the trades' likely performance over the project's life and provides evidence to the project owner that would support the formulation and release of a progress payment.Moreover, QCC's contractor/trade based audits also provide verifiable information about the non-compliance of trade packages, and offers steps to achieve compliance,which when executed, will provide the project owner confidence that the expected project quality outcomes sought, will be achieved.
