QA/QC-ing Drawings

Quality Assurance and Quality Control are two important elements in ensuring that the design and construction of a building project meet all the requirements and standards. A QA/QC checklist for reviewing architectural and consulting engineer’s drawings is a tool that helps ensure that every aspect of the drawings is reviewed and meets the desired standards. Here is a sample QA/QC checklist for reviewing architectural and consulting engineer’s drawings:

  1. Accuracy of Dimensions: Check if all the dimensions are accurate, readable, and consistent throughout the drawings.
  2. Complete Documentation: Ensure that all the necessary details and annotations are included in the drawings and that the documents are complete.
  3. Code Compliance: Verify that all the drawings meet the applicable building codes, regulations, and standards.
  4. Coordination with Other Drawings: Ensure that the drawings are coordinated with the other drawings, such as electrical, plumbing, and structural drawings.
  5. Consistency with Project Requirements: Check if the drawings meet the project requirements and specifications.
  6. Clear Annotation and Labeling: Make sure that all the annotations and labeling are clear and legible.
  7. Graphic Standards: Verify that the drawings meet the graphic standards set for the project.
  8. Scale and Proportions: Ensure that the drawings are to scale and that all the proportions are accurate.
  9. Materials and Finishes: Check if the materials and finishes specified in the drawings are accurate and meet the project requirements.
  10. Consistency with the Design Intent: Ensure that the drawings reflect the design intent of the project and that the design has not been compromised in any way.

This is just a sample checklist and can be customized to fit the specific needs of a project. It is important to have a thorough and well-organized QA/QC process to ensure the quality and accuracy of the drawings.
