Quality is an element that is integrated into and between all parts of a project that includes scope, budget, and schedule. It should not be construed as merely creating drawings with a minimum number of errors, furnishing equipment that meets specifications, or building a project to fulfill the requirements of a contract.

Quality is meeting the needs and satisfaction of the ultimate user of the project i.e. the owner.
Quality is the responsibility of all participants in project, including all levels of management and workers in each of the principal parties. An attitude of achieving quality must be instilled in everyone and perpetuate throughout the work environment.
