Construction projects are getting more complex and larger-sized with a high economic growth rate and development of new construction technologies. In addition, interests and demands on standards of construction quality are further increasing. This trend requires more systematic and a higher level of construction quality management. While the government has strengthened the regulations for quality assurance, many quality problems have repeatedly occurred mainly due to lack of recognition for quality management and quality control systems. To address this issue, this paper aims to suggest quality management improvement scheme through analyzing 3,443 nonconforming items identified during inspection of 393 construction sites from March 2012 to October 2014. The quality management improvement scheme suggested in this research is expected to prevent quality problems and defects and thus improve construction performances.
