The purpose of this book is to demonstrate how designers, project managers and clients should approach the application of quality assurance and management to the design of modern buildings. The author's approach is to describe how the fundamental philosophy of quality and mechanisms of a quality management systems relate to the building design - and subsequent construction and maintenance - through the application of a total quality management "model" for building projects. The idealized model - that achieves quality - will be mapped to existing building design and construction practice and will show where change is required. Finally, the author describes the problems and successes of the early applications of quality management systems through a series of case studies from the USA, UK and European design organizations. The author, an architect and lecturer, is a specialist in quality assurance. He has recognized that architects need particular guidance in this area of management and sets clear principles for the application of quality assurance through design and construction to the ultimate completion of the project. This book is specifically tailored to the requirements of the architectural profession for recognizable proficiency in quality assurance.
