Quality Control

At SPARK, we understand that our product, concrete, is one of the most unique and versatile building materials in the world. It can assume virtually any shape and reach great strengths. Concrete is ideal for any building project such as residential homes, schools, high-rise buildings, bridges, dams, highways etc. Concrete is perishable in its plastic state and very “sensitive” from the time the raw materials are combined to the final product. Mixing, transportation, placing, and curing can influence its plastic and hardened properties. This is why SPARK places great emphasis on quality by expanding the parameters of its concrete quality management model from quality control to quality assurance. SPARK is leading the way to higher quality practices with the implementation of a Quality Management System .

  • Documented Quality Management System – SPARK has a documented Quality Management System based on the guidelines of local standards.
  • Carefully Selected Raw Materials – It goes without saying that concrete quality starts with the raw materials. Our raw materials are selected based on their performance. Once in use, we constantly monitor each ingredient to ensure it meets specifications.
  • Mix Design – Mix Designs are designed and tested thoroughly to yield optimal performance.
  • Custom Mix Design – Available upon request.
  • Concrete Laboratories – SPARK is committed to delivering quality concrete as specified. Our plant is equipped with state-of-the-art concrete laboratory to monitor the quality of raw materials and the performance of mix designs to assure that concrete meets and exceeds specifications
  • In-House Testing – The constant in-house monitoring of our concrete performance through a regimented concrete sampling program.
  • Process Control – With our quality management system comes process control. We have a thorough system of quality control in place at our plant. This helps us to identify, document and correct most problems before they reach the field. These procedures are also extended to the calibration and maintenance of all of our batching and testing equipment.
  • Initial Project and Preconstruction Meetings – We offer and encourage this service to any customer to help facilitate communication among all parties involved.
