Quality System Management, the Hallmark of Foundation Test Group

Within construction, quality management is the system used to deliver user safety. It assures that buildings are built to code and that users will be safe inside them. Quality assurance and quality control together build quality systems management. QSM helps inspection processes move smoothly. Without proper oversee and application, a project might not be built to code requiring a lot of time and money in rework. These two distinct processes are important in building an effective and beneficial quality-based system.

Quality control and quality assurance are used interchangeably; however, in construction, they are two separate parts of quality system management. Without one or the other, the quality system will not be as effective. At FTG, Inc. our building code compliance inspections are the hallmark of our competitive advantage in the Washington Metro Region.

With safety a priority at Foundation Test Group, Inc., our internal program, Rock Solid Safety, RxS, is scripted for producing an active safety culture at every intersection. qualifications based selection, strong core values,  training, professional registration, experiential learning, advanced applications for progressive engineering decision and quality-based management internally and externally, allow our team to build strength for tailored services that are effective and efficient.

Guided by AASHTO, ACOE, IBC, MTA,MDOT, project specifications and a disciplined approach for maintaining quality, our clients benefit from both Quality Control and Quality Assurance, Always.

Quality services are not added value, rather they are essential.  At FTG, “Our People Are Our Power!”
