Given the increasing complexity and costs of the current development process, Tri-Ex employs whenever possible. The “total systems” or “multi-disciplinary” approach to project implementation is under a single organization.

Essentially, the firm adopts a matrix form of organization which delineates administrative and project management from technical activities and decisions.

Each project is undertaken by a team of competent staff engineers, each responsible for project execution of individual sub-projects. The project managers and his staff are in turn supervised by a Project Director to ensure compliance with demands for high standards and professional quality of work.

Since 1994, the company has put into service a Quality Control System and has organized a quality control staff entirely independent of the construction or production group. The QCS staff engineers/technicians undertake inspections and tests to ensure conformance with plans and specifications. Materials and product samples are tested at site or at accredited laboratories and reviews of catalog cuts, shop drawings and submittals are likewise undertaken. These activities are geared towards the prevention rather than the discovery of defective work and quality deficiency.
