The management of quality in construction is an important factor to determine the competitive edge of a construction business. Most companies in the UK construction industry are aware of the significance of BS5750-Quality System but there is no indication of how successful the implementation of quality systems have been. A questionnaire survey was conducted on a sample of professionals involved in implementing quality system in the UK construction industry to validate previous observations in an investigation on quality management. This paper describes the results of the quality management aspect of the survey and discusses several issues raised during the investigation. Amongst others, the findings show a significant awareness of quality management in civil engineering construction.
