Question What is an Inspection and Test Plan? Construction Project

We have been asked by a new client to develop and submit an 'Inspection and Test Plan' for a medium sized construction project involving concrete works and steelwork for a new large shed.

Any clues on how to do this or an example to use as a template to develop from???

Any help gratefully accepted.

Thanks.

Kevin

Don't forget to review the Codes in the UK, you don't want to overlook an important test or inspection requirement that may be directed by the Codes.

Re: What is an Inspection and Test Plan? Construction Project

It is not big deal like complex mathematical formulas!First you have to identify the extent of inspection and it's acceptance criteria from the scope of work and client specifications.Acceptance criteria you can find from your client's specifications otherwise specifications may lead to international standards like ASME(American Society of Mechanical Engineers),ASTM(American Society for Testing Materials),AWS(American Welding Society),API(American Petroleum Institute),MSS-SP(Manufacturers standardisation Society), EN(European Norms), AS (Australian Standard), JIS (Japanese Standard) etc.From there you can find acceptance criteria.Make columns on an excel work sheet according to the following order,Serial No.,Description of Activity,Reference documents, Nature of Inspections,acceptance criteria,Responsible person,Verifying documents/QC Record,Scope of inspection points(ie, each parties including contractor,client,third parties involvement like witness,hold,document review or surveillance etc).put that paper infront of client through controlled document transfer through a document controller with reference number.If the client need more stringent criteria then he will make some remark,then you have to incorporate it with next revision.Job done



Thanks

Kevin; you need to break the job down into its major components and identify where any measuring and testing is going to take place. Two of those parts for you are the concrete and steel work.

The inspect and test parts of contrete is a specification for the conrete and a slump test at the site. The slump test should show no more than about 20 mm for the standard specification for a concrete floor.

With steel you are looking at visual weld inspection, dimensional accuracy specification and measure check (inspection) then there is a coating specification and thickness inspection which is usually 3 micron thickness.

Some of these tests will be a check of the spec for the concrete, weld spec and coating speic followed by a visual inspection.

If you can think of others that a relevant and meaning full so much the better but the above are 90% of you ITP.

Re: What is an Inspection and Test Plan? Construction Project

ITP is the document that describes in detail what, by who, when and how something will be inspected or tested on site or off-site.

In some other cases it is called Quality Control Plan or Regime and it’s main purpose is to plan and document the procedure and sequence that will be followed in order to provide objective evidence and results of conformity of the works or materials.

Normally you will see the following in an ITP:
  • the item that will be checked/inspected/tested (e.g.concrete strength)
  • the document that requires this item to be checked (usually it is the contract or similar document-specification)
  • the document that according to, this item will be inspected/tested (usually a standard or a statutory requirement)
  • the kind of inspection that needs to be performed (visual inspection, document approval etc)
  • the frequency that this inspection needs to be performed (e.g. for concrete slump test = once for every track)
  • the objective criteria/tolerance parameters that will determine if the inspection/test for that item has passed or not
  • the kind of document that will be prepared and saved as a record of pass or failure (usually a signed-off form, a testing machine print-out, a photo etc)
  • if this record needs to be a deliverable, meaning that it needs to be kept and handed over to the Client at the end of the Project as part of the As-Built Folders
and finally
  • the responsibilities of every entity (Contractor, QC Engineer, Client’s Representative etc)
So, we are basically talking about a table giving all of the above information.
In my opinion, creating an ITP is not the difficult part...

The most difficult thing is to implement it and striclty follow it.
