fully are present in the property. Only

fully commissioned. Each site team ensures that list A & B is thoroughly
closed out prior to booking any final inspections. The closing out of both
lists enables the site team to reach a point where the plot is now ready for
occupation. Once closed out, each contractor will sign list A & B ensuring
each contractor takes ownership of their work. Once all signatures are
received, a site team member will check and make sure that all items on the
check list are indeed closed out and will provide a signature to sign off the
document. Only then can the plot be cleaned and offered up for a QTC exercise
(see section 2.7.4) and the final inspection process of which consists of a
yellow and white card inspection.

The quality inspector’s inspection is carried out by
the use of a software platform called Sasets (see appendix 2), which records
the snagging items and electronically distributes the recorded information in
real time. Sasets has the ability to attach any photo the user wants to
include to further identify a defect (see appendix 3). Sasets provides an electronic template of all
possible snags and defects ensuring the inspector has considered all possible
problems (see appendix 2, screenshot 1). A yellow card is issued where a few
minor snags are spotted by the inspector and a white card is issued where no
further snags are present in the property. Only then the purchaser may occupy
the apartment. The Sasets software was originally introduced into Galliard as a
data recording system for health and safety in real time. The Sasets

company were willing to develop a new platform to
record defects in real time in collaboration with a Galliard employee, Marius
Cooper to suit the needs of the company.  Therefore, no previous research has been found
investigating the use of Sasets software for the documentation of defects in a
construction company making this study a pilot case study (Sasets, 2012).
