Quality remains one of the most important parameters in construction, alongside time and cost. However, quality is subjective and it is difficult to quantify.
CIDB, with working groups consisting of public and private stakeholders, in 2005, have put together a construction industry standard or CIS on the base quality requirement for the industry.
The outcome is called Quality Assessment System for Building Construction Works or QLASSIC (CIS 7:2006). The standard has been improved and enhanced according to the construction climate today (CIS 7:2014).
The Quality team focuses on various activities to promote quality in construction:
- Training – assessor
- Seminars – awareness of QLASSIC
- Assessor accreditation
- Education – industry players and the public
Industry players are encouraged to adopt QLASSIC to ensure quality in their projects.
