About this book

Introduction

Since the publication of the third edition in 1989, changes in quality control/assurance have affected the construction industry. This new fourth edition includes revised and new material relating to Section A, specifically Total Quality Management, ISO 9000, and quality control. The Codes and Standards Section, Contract Documents, and Legal Documents Sections have also been extensively updated. Construction Inspection Handbook systematically reinstates the importance of quality by providing you with a comprehensive quality assurance plan. At the same time, this ensures that your construction projects meet contract specifications, comply with Construction Specification Institute standards, and conform with safety requirements and legal codes.
