The foundation for a successful Quality Assurance program is the control maintained by the Contractor to assure that all materials submitted for acceptance conform to the contract requirements and the project schedule is not interrupted.At Eisman & Russo, we take the worry out of Quality Assurance and Quality Control (QA./QC) and let you, the contractor, concentrate on building bridges.
Our engineers and technical staff have been involved with many of North America’s largest segmental bridges. Collectively, our Construction Engineering & Inspection staff has over 100 years of construction and QC experience in building bridges.
All of our QC personnel are CTQP-qualified and will obtain any certifications needed specific to your project needs. This takes the burden off of the Contractor to hire trained CTQP-qualified staff and any additional expense required in maintaining those qualifications.
Quality Control during the construction phase of a project is a critical step to its success, therefore, E&R’s participation during this process plays an important role in attaining crucial project objectives.
Our process approach is to serve as a catalyst to the construction. Our QC engineers and technicians not only certify the quality of the materials but seek methods to speed up construction, look forward to the “next step” and provide creative methods to overcome the rocks in the road associated with large bridge projects.
Our engineers and technicians have extensive experience working between the engineer-of-record, specialty engineers and agencies to include DOTs, xpressway/turnpike authorities and permitting agencies.
The QA/QC approach demands a very accurate and responsive testing and documenting program. Our experience has taught us that the most difficult aspect of administering a QC Plan is not the contractor’s testing program serving as a basis for acceptance, but the physical steps and requirements in reporting or entering the testing data into standard agency forms and/or electronic reporting system.
E&R can provide a variety of bridge related construction services to help deliver your project. Those services include:
