Quality assurance:
how do others do it?

If you start working with quality assurance yourself, it is nice to see how someone else does it. How does it work? How do fellow builders experience the difference that digital quality assurance makes? You can read about it in the following case studies.

1. Quality assurance taken a step further: how it’s done at Draisma Bouw  (Case study, 2022)

The law to form a joint standard in construction has been postponed in recent years, but now it seems that it will really go into effect in 2024. That also applies to Draisma Bouw, which is already starting to ‘practice’. This is not only to be well prepared for the WKB (Quality Assurance Act), but also because every builder knows it’s to deliver quality. Read more about their experiences in the article above.

2. PlanGarant Netherlands: Quality control is essential throughout the process (Case study, 2022)

“It is not a program that forces you to follow a certain process,” says Broeze. “You decide for yourself what the process is like and the program fits in with that. We as a company also find it important that the builders’ process remains as is as much as possible, and that we can connect to it [with Prostream]. And not the other way around.” Read more about PlanGarant’s experience in the article above.

3. VEBIDAK: the construction industry could make good use of time saved (Case study, 2022)

“There was a need for a system for digital inspection and reporting. We already did that digital reporting, so we didn’t get very far, but that digital inspection was really important because we noticed that more and more clients were already doing that themselves. Makes sense, because that way you can easily exchange data with each other. And we’re not even talking about the time savings it generates. That is how we ended up at Snagstream (the predecessor of Prostream) from Pro4all.” Read more about VEBIDAK’s experience in the article above.
