ADC is dedicated to creating solutions that are of the highest quality and accordance to all requirements, guidelines, codes, restrictions and standards. We do this through consistent and measured quality control and quality assurance procedures.
Our stellar history of constructability and client cost control stems from our own Quality Assurance Plan. This plan was developed to ensure that all drawings and design packages submitted throughout the project are free from errors and omissions. This results in packages that can be fabricated and installed in the manner drawn in a coordinated effort across all disciplines.
Our Quality Control and Quality Assurance Manager provides value engineering, review of retrofit concepts and cost modeling, as well as design integration of structures and systems throughout the project timeline. The Project Manager oversees project activity and guarantees that construction costs are budgeted, tracked and controlled. This system is critical during the entire design process. Our QA/QC and Project Management processes together can successfully eliminate any unnecessary costs during construction. ADC’s dedication to creative problem solving, attention to detail, and collaboration between the client and design team, has resulted in ADC having a less than 1% rate of change orders on projects.
Creating strategic partnerships is another way that Advance Design Consultants creates value for our clients through enhanced collaboration.
