Quality Assurance & Safety

Quality Assurance

We guarantee our success through two key elements:

The first is that each member of our team has experience in the roles that are subordinate to him or her. This allows each team member to have intimate knowledge of the methods and practices that pertain not only to their role but to each role that is essential on the job site. Our mentorship program is designed to take skilled employees and pair them with workers that are new to each role so that they can be trained through on-the-job experience. These partnerships guarantee that our work is efficient and safe.

Secondly, building on our mentorship program and on-the-job training, is the key element of fostering a team mentality. Our core personnel understand that each project is a group effort and that the project is only successful when the team is successful. Achieving our goals relies on the efforts of each person and their respective role in the group. Through working as a tight-knit team, we can achieve objectives that would not be possible as individuals.

It is through these two elements, our experience and our team culture that we guarantee our success. Our quality control systems ensure that all Shamrock construction activities follow best operating practices and remain consistent in performance and safe in their delivery. We’re proud to have this philosophy at the core of our corporate QA/QC program.
