Rigorous Quality Control

VanMar has developed a detailed construction quality management plan (QMP) that ensures a rigorous and consistent process for quality control throughout our projects, from design through construction and into the warranty period. We implement our QMP throughout the construction process to enable us to detect, locate, and correct any serious deviations in the work.

Our philosophy is that rigorous quality control during each phase of construction ensures professional workmanship and a final product of the highest quality.

  • It prevents deficient and poor-quality work that could lead to costly repairs or ongoing warranty issues.
  • Good quality control practices also help to keep projects on schedule by identifying and remedying problems before they cause delays.

VanMar upholds a standard that inspires growth and provides the opportunity for my team and I to excel at what we do together. That’s why I chose VanMar.
