At FTQ360, we’re on a mission to help everyone achieve First Time Quality construction and that’s why we’re sponsoring the Advancing Construction Quality conference again this year. With almost fifty speakers and a packed three-day agenda, we think this event in Nashville, Tennessee is going to be the best one yet.
At last year’s conference, our CEO Ed Caldeira led a session entitled: Assessing Your Quality Program – Where You Are and How To Up Your Game. Along with Jason Suarez, Quality Manager at Henkels & McCoy, Ed covered a number of key topics and challenges facing the construction industry:
- Understanding why most quality program initiatives fail to get traction.
- Evaluating your quality program in relation to your peers and construction industry best practices.
- Developing an action plan to get your program to the next level.
- Reviewing how Henkels & McCoy got traction for their national quality program and how they use FTQ360 to up their game.
At that session, we introduced our brand-new Construction Quality Management – Maturity Model based on our wealth of experience and leading industry best practices. The model was well received by everyone and widely considered to be an important step forward in the advancement of construction quality.
Never ones to stand still, we are upping our own game at the conference in 2019.
Your Complete Guide to Achieving First Time Quality Excellence
We want to help people that already take construction quality seriously but that need a bit of extra help, so we created a new e-Book entitled: Your complete guide to achieving First Time Quality excellence.
This handy guide reveals the hidden benefits of First Time Quality and busts some of the common myths that can stop people from developing a professional quality program before they even start. We explain how to get the basics right and create an action plan to get you to the next level. We believe that with FTQ360, you really can build it right the first time, every time.
The Maturity Assessment Questionnaire
At this year’s event, we are officially launching the FTQ360 Construction Quality Management – Maturity Assessment and encouraging people to take the test to find out how their quality program stacks up today and to help figure out exactly what they need to do to improve it in the future. Building on the Maturity Model we introduced at the Advancing Construction Quality conference last year – with four maturity levels from Basic and Professional to Advanced and Expert – we devised a simple yet powerful multiple-choice questionnaire that pin-points just how well you’re doing across the ten most important areas of construction quality; organization, management, strategy, accountability, planning, processes, controls, measurement, improvement and technology.

Since the last Advancing Construction Quality conference, we’ve also spent a lot of time thinking about what makes FTQ360 software the best construction quality management software available today and the kind of construction professionals that would really find it valuable.
Put simply, people that take quality management seriously want to use the best tools available to them and don’t want to compromise their performance by using generic construction software that isn’t up to the job.
We’ve designed our platform with a number of advanced software features that meet the specific needs of ambitious quality managers and construction leaders. So, the theme of our stand this year is all about getting serious with quality. Our new headline ‘If you’re serious about quality, you need serious quality management software’ captures this idea perfectly.
If you’re attending the Advancing Construction Quality conference, please feel free to drop by our stand where you can discover the FTQ360 Software Platform for yourself. FTQ360 is serious software built by construction quality experts for construction quality professionals.
