Quality Assurance for Structural Engineering Firms [P7]Fast schedules, BIM modeling, sophisticated analysis and design software, increasingly complex building codes and young engineers taking on more responsibility earlier in their careers has made essential the need for every structural engineering firm to have a formal in-house Quality Assurance program. Adoption of a Quality Assurance program will result in better design, better contract documents with fewer errors, fewer RFI's and change orders, increased profits and an enhanced reputation for your firm. This seminar reviews the components of a model Quality Assurance program and reviews the procedures and methodologies for performing in-house Quality Assurance reviews. Much has changed in the structural engineering profession since 2008 when this seminar was presented at the NASCC. The presentation has been revised to address the challenges that every structural engineering office faces in 2018.
