DFI believes in continuous improvement. Before DFI becomes your service provider, our quality department drafts inspection and test plans (ITPs) and project quality plans (PQPs) to ensure we are aligned with your expectations.
Prior to mobilization, issued for construction (IFC) drawings are reviewed, and discrepancies are noted and discussed with our customers through the request for information (RFI) procedure. In the event that welding is required, be it for shop activities or field activities, we are certified by the Canadian Welding Bureau (CWB) and the American Welding Society (AWS).
On site, DFI’s quality representative ensures that all material arriving on site meets the customer requirements, including documentation on a mill test report (MTR) in addition completing project logs, survey information logs, piling logs, and welding logs. Each stage of the construction process is documented and reviewed by the quality representatives from both the customer and DFI, and signed off regularly on the customer-approved ITP. This is done to ensure that task items, such as RFIs and non-conformance reports (NCRs), are closed progressively and that hold items are reviewed.
Upon completion of all site works, the quality representative compiles all documentation as specified on the ITP and in the turnover index included in the PQP. Once the quality turnover is accepted by the customer, the closing process of the job may begin.
