Quality Assurance/Quality Control
PROCESSES THAT YIELD RESULTS
Quality is an integral part of project management that we address at all phases, from concept to design, procurement, construction, and close-out.
All Sundt projects follow a quality management plan (QMP) that meets contract requirements, setting up our teams to perform work correctly and safely the first time. QMPs include thorough operation planning, quality checks through planned and systematic verifications, continuous improvement, and refinement through final acceptance.
For us, quality is about keeping promises—saying what we’re going to do, and then doing what we say. Our QA/QC processes hold individuals and teams accountable, and they enable us to deliver consistent service and results across projects.
PEOPLE WHO FIND ANSWERS
With dedicated quality professionals, Sundt project teams are known for their consistency and transparency.
Our in-house quality managers and inspectors ensure compliance with all contract requirements for materials, assembly procedures and services utilized, based on each project’s specific quality management plan as well as its inspection and test plan.
Sundt project teams operate at the “speed of trust” with emphasis on transparent and timely communications. If there are changes or concerns regarding quality, we are actively discussing it with project stakeholders and working together with relevant partners to find a solution.
Our quality management system is modeled after ISO 9001-2015, and Sundt holds ASME stamps U, S, R and NB.
Our quality management system consists of an 8-phase program. Each phase defines processes and procedures to ensure quality and consistency for the day-to-day operations of every project. Compliance with ISO 9001-2015 is built into our program through five levels of documentation, including our own in-house manuals for compliance with industry quality standards. Our quality control managers are responsible for implementing these standards in the field and have stop-work authority whenever code compliance is in question.
Sundt holds American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) U, S, R and NB stamps for the in-house manufacture and assembly of various pressure vessels, boilers and piping. Having these self-perform capabilities gives us a significant advantage when controlling quality across projects.
