Abstract : Special requirements for contractor quality control (CQC) of built-up roofing were written and incorporated into the contract for construction of three tactical equipment maintenance shops. The site was visited during the construction of each shop to observe the roofing application and evaluate the effectiveness of the CQC specification. It was found that the specification is not observed as much as it should be. The quality of the CQC function depends to a great extent on the capabilities of the CQC representative and the number of other duties he must perform. CQC can best be improved by insuring that the quality assurance representative spends enough time on the roof during its construction to note and correct deficiencies in a timely manner and to insure that the CQC representative is performing properly.
