The TEQnik® Method
Successful projects dont just happen they are the
result of teamwork, planning and controls.
Daoust Construction takes a systematic, ongoing approach to managing
risk by using established risk management procedures. We manage
construction risk through the use of four separate methodologies:
identification, evaluation, implementation and maintenance.
Risk assessment includes reviews of the scope of requirements
compared with preliminary budgets; document quality with respect
to completeness and reflection of user requirements; the ability
to construct within the design intent; plus extraneous factors
such as labour harmony, market conditions, and the ability to
deliver construction as scheduled.
Weve added our wealth of practical experience to risk management
techniques and developed our proprietary TEQnik® Method to provide
our clients with many advantages, including the following:
- Time management We achieve effective scheduling, streamlining,
co-ordination and fast-tracking of activities by intelligently
compressing and sequencing them. By doing so, we ensure that
milestones and deadlines are respected. The project schedule
is divided into five different stages: design, procurement activities
(bidding and pre-purchase), deliveries (manufacture and shipping),
construction and start-up. Construction is divided into logical
- Economy management By performing timely and continuous
cost evaluations, life cycle costing and value engineering contributions,
we ensure that budgets are respected. Influences such as market
pressures and risk factors are continuously monitored and evaluated
appropriately. A comprehensive Construction Cost Plan is developed,
which relates to the Work Breakdown Structure and forms the
baseline for project cost updates and reports.
- Quality management We prepare, manage and control the
quality of the project from design and pre-construction to construction
and occupancy. We develop a project-specific Quality Management
System (QMS) and begin by reviewing drawings and specifications
for specific quality standards and measurable results. With
the support of the design team, we develop a thorough and measured
quality assurance process to monitor, measure and inspect against
the established quality control criteria.
We carry out systematic inspections and provide the necessary
reports. We maintain, monitor and audit the quality control records
against the QMS and report results to the project team. Inspections
are conducted in a structured fashion, with measured results that
confirm that the work inspected meets the established criteria.
Commissioning is an integral part of our quality management approach.
We prepare a commissioning plan to address all performance parameters
for the design, construction and post-construction stages. This
ensures that all systems are thoroughly inspected before commissioning
What ensures that our TEQnik Method works so well is our open-book
philosophy, which builds both confidence and trust. Thats
something weve been doing for generations.
TEAMWORK + PLANNING + CONTROLS = SUCCESSFUL PROJECTS
