A Foundation For QA/QC: National Director of Multifamily Standards
June 18, 2019
As BSB Design’s multifamily studio continues to grow in scale and sophistication, we have placed renewed focus on standardized drawings and processes. This attention directly benefits our clients through increased production efficiency, minimized errors and omissions and reduced risk for litigation.
This focus led to refinement of our QA/QC processes, as well as the creation of a new and important leadership role. To support our ongoing efforts in this area, Mark Lane has been named National Director of Multifamily Standards. His primary responsibility is to improve standardization and efficiency for all multifamily projects at BSB Design.
During his tenure with the firm, Mark has displayed a passion for developing, implementing and maintaining our construction document standards and processes. With input from other like-minded BSB staff, he authored our Process Manual and QA-QC Process that has now been fully implemented for all BSB Design multifamily projects nationwide. His leadership responsibilities now include:
- Ensuring consistency of drawing standards
- Implementing the QA-QC process
- Tracking and analyzing project financial data
- Assuring consistency, quality, profitability, efficiency and timeliness
