Building the WeitzWay
Our quality control planning for 10th & Acoma focuses on engaging the owner and design team to ensure all parties understand the level of quality expectations prior to the work going into place. The use of mockups to understand the level of expectations are the best way to achieve this. We constructed a stand-alone, out of sequence mockup of the exterior skin to focus on critical exterior details and perform water testing of the envelope. Another key component of our plan is to include Lennar in “box walks” to confirm they are satisfied with how electrical outlets and other rough in components layout within each unit type before we proceed with drywall. Where mockups aren’t necessary, we conduct first work inspections to ensure subcontractors are installing the work correctly at the onset and not repeating mistakes process. Lennar is extremely satisfied with our performance to date at 10th & Acoma. As successful as Radiant was, 10th & Acoma is shaping up to be even more successful due to our continuous improvement, incorporation of lessons
learned and experience working together.
