Design Quality


The following information is provided as an aid to enhance the quality of design deliverables. This information is intended to enhance the on-going quality control and quality assurance practices that are utilized by the designer.

The QC Checklists are available for each discipline for use by the Designers and should be included with all submittals.

The QA Checklists are provided for each discipline as a reference and will be utilized by the Preconstruction Support Quality Assurance team during the Quality Assurance review process.

Information found on this page will be routinely updated as new policies, procedures, guidelines, and standards are adopted by the Department. Designers are encouraged to provide feedback to the Preconstruction Support design discipline leads to request additional items for inclusion within the checklists.
