Quality Control and Assurance is often only given lip-service by the consulting teams on most projects. Madiba Development Limited institutes and manages a regular quality control review process using a checklist format developed specifically for this task, over many years of experience on multiple projects. Overlays of the site, building plans and engineering disciplines are carefully scrutinized for conflicts, spatial interferences and completeness in these interdisciplinary review sessions, logged, and back-checked to assure that any issues and conflicts uncovered are appropriately addressed and resolved by the responsible consultants.
