Las Vegas, NV (PRWEB) January 23, 2009
International Builders' Show: Quality Built announced today that it has collected its 40 millionth quality checkpoint, representing over $9 billion in corrected construction risk across the country.
"This is a great achievement for the construction industry to have this kind of quality improvement," said Stan Luhr, Quality Built CEO. "It proves that builders are really focused on delivering an exceptional product, despite the industry slowdown."
The company uses ruggedized field computers and ultra-mobile tablet PC's running their proprietary software to analyze construction sites and identify quality issues before they are covered up. Builders receive online data reports that help track quality issues by each trade, and verify that items needing attention are corrected before continuing with construction.
Luhr's company began providing quality assurance inspections in 1994, the heyday of construction defect litigation where billions of dollars were being spent defending and paying construction claims. As a construction expert, he decided to turn his knowledge of defects into prevention to help builders eliminate the defects before they were covered up. "We say that it will never be cheaper to fix a defect than when you first discover it," says Luhr.
