How To Check Quality In Construction..




The work performed by each individual in the building trade has a decisive effect on the success of any construction project – whether for new construction or renovation. Use our five-phase check. With it, we will assist you through all stages of a construction project: 

Concrete Mix:
The concrete strength requirement depends on the structure's load. Builders closely monitor the strength of the concrete mix. As it is not always possible to monitor the preparation of concrete mix on the site, ready-mix is a better alternative. Ask the builder for certification of concrete mix provided by a testing laboratory.
Structural Design:
Making sense of the design and layout blueprints is difficult for a lay person. However, one can ask for the design created by the project's architects and seek help from a third-party professional to make sure that everything is in place. For instance, the building should have the strength to withstand earthquakes of a certain magnitude.
Wall Thickness:
Builders should mention the width of the walls in layout plans and booking/purchase agreements. Visiting the site while the construction is on to check that the builder is adhering to the original plan?
Finishing:
Once the unit is ready, the quality of plaster, tiles, marbles and paints should be visible to the naked eye. If you have any doubt, ask the builder about the brands used. The use of poor-quality paints and tiles means you will have to replace them early.

Fixtures:
When developers promise certain fixtures and finishing, it is assumed that they will be of satisfactory quality. It's a wrong approach. One must always check if bathroom fittings, wires, electrical fittings, etc, have been certified by the Bureau of Indian Standards.
