The Three-Phase Control System requires the contractor to plan and schedule the work. This helps ensure the contractor is prepared to begin each new Definable Feature of Work. (DFOW).

The three phases of control are the core of the Construction Quality Management System and are included in your project’s Quality Control Plan. When the actions are performed as outlined, success in completing the work to comply with requirements of the contract is enhanced.

It’s important that the QC Staff not get into the habit of only working to detect deficiencies when in fact their role is to prevent deficiencies. This can be achieved by taking care of deficiencies and documentation as soon as they are discovered.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_single_image image=”17831″ img_size=”full”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]The Three Phases of control are the Preparatory Phase, the Initial Phase, and the Follow-Up Phase.

The Contractor develops, schedules, and implements procedures for tracking control phase meetings for the Definable Features of Work.

For instance the QC Manager or QC Staff will:

  • Notify appropriate personnel of the time, date, and agenda for control phase meetings.
  • Conduct Meetings for the Preparatory Phase and Initial Phases
  • Safety considerations and Activity Hazard Analyses will be discussed.
  • Discussions will be documented and provided to attendees after the meetings
  • Monitor work in place throughout the follow-up phase.
  • Conduct additional control phase meetings, as needed.
