SAM-CS Vice President, Gregory Cleveland, Speaks about TxDOT's Design-Build Quality Assurance Program

As a co-author of the TxDOT Design-Build Quality Assurance Program (DB QAP), Greg Cleveland will be presenting at the Infraday South Conference Thursday, September 26 regarding the DB QAP's revised program. The program's statewide consistent and programmatic approach seeks to ensure that materials and workmanship are in reasonable conformance with Federal requirements. The program was developed specifically for the risk profile associated with projects that have a Capital Maintenance Agreement (CMA) with three optional five-year terms.

Mr. Cleveland will also discuss the lessons learned for management and material and construction quality. With several factors affecting timely inspection and testing, it's imperative that industry professionals are aware of communication protocol in the field and understand the decision making process based on construction elements and their long-term residual risks of failure.
