What We Do
Our Quality Control process
At KPCL, we know how important quality control is to your project, and our individualized Quality Management Plans (QMP) and policies make sure you get superior quality on every job we partner with you to complete.

- Providing a standard of service and reliability that meets or exceeds the owner’s requirements of quality, value and service
- Providing quality products and services that conform to the applicable contract requirements, rules and regulations, whether supplied directly or through Subcontractors
- Readily preventing, detecting and resolving non-conformance
- Involving all personnel in the quality program to ensure its effectiveness
- Giving authority to the Quality Control Manager and Project Superintendent to act for KPCL on all issues relating to Quality Control (QC), including the authority to supersede all other KPCL personnel in matters relating to QC on the Project

WE KNOW DIRT
MAINTAINING QUALITY STANDARDS
KPCL’s project QMP’s are based on the requirements of International Standard ISO 9001. They are designed to ensure that all requirements for quality are recognized, and that consistent and uniform control of these activities are continually maintained.
Our QMPs are continually reviewed and updated as KPCL grows in experience and expands the Company Project Portfolio.
Inspection and Testing Plan
As part of KPCL’s Quality Control Process, a documented Inspection and Testing Plan (ITP) is produced prior to the kickoff of a project. The ITP outlines all inspections and tests needed at various points in the execution of the project. These measures ensure that the construction quality is monitored as it progresses and provides results confirming that project was built in accordance with the project design and specifications. The ITP is submitted and reviewed before construction begins and is revised throughout construction as needed.
Typically, KPCL engages the services of a recognized industry leader to perform the QC testing on our behalf. Using a recognized, qualified, and independent third-party firm provides us and our clients with further assurance they are receiving the very best quality testing on their projects.
Internal Non-Conformance Report
Integral to KPCL’s QC process is the Internal Non-Conformance Report (INCR). If Quality Management staff identify that a portion of the work, a product or service does not comply with or meet the requirements of the contract documents, then an INCR is issued.
By issuing an INCR, non-conformance is raised to an actionable status that needs to be addressed through a corrective action plan. The corrective action plan is captured and communicated to staff through a Corrective Action Report (CAR). This report documents the corrective actions required to resolve the non-conformance and prevent its reoccurrence.
