Inspection of building construction work Inspection of construction must be done to make sure the building construction work follow the requirements or not inspection of construction must follows the approval of application and the builder’s request. In the inspection stages, the inspector must know the codes and guidelines required to be examined at each stages of inspection. The codes and guidelines give the stages at which the inspectors are expected to examine the work and to approve the work examined so that the contractor can move to the following stages of work. According to (Wason), the following are the work that should be examined: A. Building Layout.
PROBLEM STATEMENT The main theme of this research is to identify the problems for the construction companies to implement quality management process according to the standard and the impact it has on the construction project. The precise implementation of any standard in construction is very hard to achieve but attempt needs to be made for closest call. This research is focused on investigation of how quality management is being practiced. This spring the process charted by the construction companies and the comparative study of this process, with standard, provides the difference in the work methodology, for further analysis. The study is based on different aspects of the process being carried out; first being the early work on quality management plan and second being the
Importance of Planning in Construction Project: Construction planning is most basic and highly challenge task during construction project. which include choice of technology, definition of work tasks, requirement of the resources and duration of each tasks . 1. Planning can reduce cost to minimize by control The optimal use of available resources. In construction project , material used expenses and other cost directly determines the final income from this project.
INTRODUCTION Construction projects consider being successful on the basis of objectives i.e. completion on time with desired quality, within cost and safety is prime requirement. There are many components of a construction project like material, labour and equipments etc. and we can work hard on each to prepare a strategy to achieve these objectives effectively also add value to organisational goal with the complementary functions of time and cost as now a day’s best way to minimise the cost is complete the project in shortest time without compromising the safety and quality. One of the main sub-component comes under material component is formwork.
It requires that development projects are carried out without compromise on quality or wastage of resources. To achieve this, it is imperative that professionalism take center stage. Identifying the causes of unprofessional conduct in construction sets a platform for implementation of combative measures with the goal to root out these practices completely. This also serves to demystify some of the preconceived ideas about professionals in
General procedures focus on areas like review of internal documentation, undertaking completeness tests and looking out for errors and omissions. Whereas Source-Category Specific Quality Control procedures are more directed towards specific product needs like some chemicals need their activity regularly checked and some have different storage needs2. Sallis states that the concern of QA is about preventing faults occurrence in the first place. Quality is designed into the process to ensure that the products are produced to a predetermined specification. Sallis argues that the quality of the good or service is assured by there being a system in place, known as a quality assurance system, which lays down exactly how production should take place and to what standards.
Designers and project managers in the construction industry seek to fully plan and define the preferred final product as per the client’s preferences at the beginning of a contract this is impossible as all aspects of planning become more difficult the more into the future they extend (PRINCE, 2009). The client is a person that is first party to the contract and requires specialist work on site prior to practical completion of the construction project this is usually carried out by the contractor. The contractor therefore is second party to the contract with the client for the execution of the works as named in the contract agreement. As a result due to the perpetually evolving environment in which construction takes place as well as the unique
It is within this stage of project development where projects solutions based on the challenges that the project has to address is developed in details. The project management team responsible for the planning of the project, has to come up with various strategies that defines steps in which objectives of the project development would be achieve. The other important requirement of the project development team at this stage is the planning of the project development process. Based on the available information from the feasibility team, the project planning team is required to study the information so as to determine resources that are required by the project from its start to completion and the process of acquiring them. As such, the team will also look at the funds allocation for the
Planning and scheduling are the most important aspects contributing to the success of a project. How these factors affect the construction productivity is studied and discussed in this project. With proper planning and scheduling, there is a great chance that the work would be completed within the targeted cost and time. It is important that proper work would be completed within the optimum usage of materials, manpower and machinery be adopted. The techniques normally been used for project scheduling, are namely the Gantt chart and critical path method.
Windapo and Rotimi (2012) cited in Ayeni and Adedeji (2015) observed the absence of engaging building professionals in construction work which has resulted to failed projects and poor functional performance; as building that meets desired performance requirements add value to national asset stock. Aspect of building construction that ranges from the conceptualization to the planning stage, production of design, and the production process of the project requires adequate supervision and input from the construction professionals and stakeholders. Effective site management according to Mohammed and Anumba (2006) cited in Jimoh (2012) involves a combination of activities which turns basic resources into a finished product. In line with this assertion, Obiegbu (2012) cited in Jimoh (2012) stated that construction can be seen as the conversion of raw resource inputs into defined functioning output by means of a managed process. He further highlighted the following reasons why practicing good site management is imperative: It ensures the most efficient and effective use of
