We mean it when we say that “we’re sometimes out promised, but we’re never out-performed.”.

Safety Training

The strength of DAVID is in the strength of our employees. We believe it is our responsibility to teach our employees how to work safely and to follow all DAVID safety requirements. Construction is an inherently dangerous profession, so it is absolutely imperative that our teams work safely at all times. In order for DAVID to provide the safest work environment possible, we require all employees to attend specific safety training classes during their first year of employment. We also require all employees to attend weekly “Tool Box Talks” and to attend various safety refresher courses on an annual basis.

“The synergy developed on site between the DAVID Construction team of the project manager, the project superintendent, the owner and the consultants allowed their efforts to work towards the completion of the Kenwood Station Elementary School on time, on budget and with the expected level of quality and safety.”

Quality Control

Quality is a state of mind for DAVID – it simply goes without saying. Quality, however, doesn’t come easy and we work hard 100% of the time to produce the highest quality workmanship possible.

DAVID has developed a 3 Phase Quality Control Program that has proven itself under some of the most difficult projects imaginable. The following is a summary of how our 3 Phase Quality Control Program works:

 

  • Connector.

    Phase 1 - Preparatory Meetings

    Preparatory Meetings are performed prior to starting each Major Feature of Work. Prior to the Preparatory Meeting, a written outline is prepared detailing the important aspects of each Major Feature of Work. After each Preparatory Meeting, but prior to the start of each Major Feature of Work, the actual workers are instructed of the minimum acceptable level of workmanship required. The workers are also instructed of any special safety issues that need to be considered.

  • Connector.

    Phase 2 - Initial Inspections

    Initial Inspections consist of a review of the 1st day’s work for each Major Feature of Work to ensure workmanship, contract compliance, and safety requirements are being met. Initial Inspections also correct any potential misunderstandings that may arise following the Preparatory Meeting.

  • Connector.

    Phase 3 - Follow-Up Inspections

    Follow-Up Inspections are conducted on a regular basis as each Major Feature of Work progresses to ensure the controls established in Phases 1 and 2 continue to provide work that conforms to the contract documents. Deficiencies are documented in the Deficiency Tracking Log along with the corrective action to be taken. Workers are not to be permitted to build upon or conceal defective work under any circumstances.
