Quality Assurance for Design - a Preliminary View

The Institution has a responsibility to promote excellence in structural engineering and quality in construction. In choosing to join the Instiitution, the members subscribe to these ideals and assist in implementing policies to maintain and enhance the effectiveness of professional membership. Excellence in design involves more than the application of Codes of Practice and calculation procedures. The ability to deal with these formal aspects of design must be combined with an ability to understand, guide and interpret a client’s requirements to provide a structure of the appropriate quality. Recognition and production of quality through design is implicit to the work of the chartered structural engineer. Peter Campbell and John W. Dougill
