Leap Forward with Quality:
Thriving in the Age of CONQUAS Banding with Novade.
In the fast-paced, high-stakes construction industry, the ability to adapt and evolve is vital. The advent of the new Building and Construction Authority (BCA) CONQUAS banding system, which rates condo developers and builders based on their quality of their construction workmanship, is a testament to this need for continuous advancement. Developers, contractors, and builders who fail to adapt risk being left behind in an industry that never stands still.
Powering Ahead with CONQUAS
The CONQUAS banding system offers an innovative approach to evaluating and improving construction quality. It offers an effective framework to compare and enhance workmanship and presents a unique opportunity for developers and builders to showcase their commitment to quality and innovation.
On the flip side, falling short in this system serves as a significant wake-up call, prompting introspection and improvement. Either way, the CONQUAS banding system represents a significant step forward in quality assurance.
The stakes will be even higher for projects with construction tenders launched from June 2022 onwards when the updated CONQUAS rating system will also check on water slippage, ponding in common areas, and shattering glass.
1. Differentiation in a Competitive Market:
For developers and builders who consistently deliver high-quality work, the CONQUAS banding system allows them to differentiate themselves in the market. Scoring in Bands 1 or 2 reflects a strong track record of minimal major defects upon BCA inspection, enhancing their reputation amongst potential customers.
2. Informed Decision-Making for Buyers:
Developers and contractors in higher bands indirectly assure potential buyers of their reliability and commitment to quality. This makes it easier for clients to make informed decisions, favoring developers and contractors who rank high in the CONQUAS banding.
3. Performance Benchmarking:
Developers and contractors can use the banding system as a form of performance benchmark. By regularly monitoring their standing and comparing it to competitors, they can identify areas for improvement and set strategic goals for quality enhancement.
4. Incentive for Continuous Improvement:
The banding system serves as a motivation for developers and contractors to continuously improve their standards of workmanship.
With the public nature of the CONQUAS bands and the impact on their market position, maintaining or improving their band becomes an integral part of their business strategy.
5. Enhanced Client Relationships:
By delivering consistent quality and minimizing defects, developers and contractors can build and maintain strong relationships with clients.
This reliability can lead to repeat business, referrals, and a stronger overall market position.
With the integration of Novade Quality into their workflow, developers and contractors have an even greater edge. The system enables the tracking of all quality observations, quick rectification of issues, real-time data sharing, and predictive analytics for quality issues. This integration of technology can significantly help in consistently maintaining high CONQUAS scores, hence securing a reputable band ranking.
