Layout & Fit
Prior to being packed and shipped, units manufactured at Boston Valley are checked for conformance with industry standard dimensional tolerances and against the approved color control sample. For large restoration and new construction projects, or when requested by the client, Boston Valley will also perform a layout and dry-fit of the terra cotta units to ensure alignment of the blocks in the assembly according to the approved setting drawing. This last step in our quality control process confirms to the client that the units can be installed when they arrive at the job site. Clients are welcome to visit the facility to inspect the layout and dry-fit; additionally they could consider hiring a third-party company to perform inspection.
The last stop for products before they leave our facility is the shipping department. Here, blocks that have been sized and inspected are packaged into wooden crates. Product is packaged and shipped according to the priority sequencing that was established at the beginning of the project. Each unit number is recorded into a log with the date and crate number indicated, and the contents of every crate are photo documented prior to being shipped. The client will receive a shipping report that provides the project name, date, shipment number, crate number, block style and unit number.
Boston Valley Terra Cotta will support its clients from design through installation with expert personnel in all areas of the process. We maintain an ongoing dialogue with the client throughout all phases of the job and encourage visits to our facility to provide clarity on manufacturing means and methods.
