Our Construction Philosophy

To Arcon Works, the ethos of quality assurance is clear: Quality cannot be inspected in, it must be planned for and built in. Arcon is aware that much of construction’s practices are still based on the philosophy of inspection.

To overcome this long held belief which has continuously worked against the construction industry, Arcon has identified the following key areas which if properly addressed then quality building projects done within budget and at the agreed time period can be realized.
• Lack of skill
• Lack of care
• Lack of knowledge of materials and construction techniques
• Lack of accountability
• Poor management

At Arcon we have established quality systems to address the above that are periodically reviewed. Staffs at Arcon are expected to ensure quality through these quality systems.
Arcon has also appointed a managerial representative responsible for quality management who is independent of other functions in The Company. All personnel in The Company have responsibilities and authorities with respect to quality delegated and defined.
