The purpose of the workshop summarized in this book was to develop an agenda for ASCE actions to promote quality in the constructed project. The papers, discussions and session reports address this subject in two main sections. The first section, quality in planning and design, covers meeting the owners objectives, achieving teamwork in design, dealing with external factors (codes, standards and regulations) affecting quality, and assuring quality in the design phase. The second section, quality in construction, covers organizing and managing for quality in construction, handling conflicts and disputes, dealing with constraints affecting construction quality, and performing quality construction. A summary report of the conference is included and recommended actions resulting from the workshop are listed.
