What do we have in our house construction quality checklist?

house construction quality checklist

Each of our project in execution will be assessed and certified on the same quality standards which fall under rigorous quality checks of our house construction quality checklist. The aim of quality check is to make sure definitive quality norms are adhered to at each stage of construction with maximum efficiency and least wastage.

Four Categories of Quality Check:

Civil Execution

ARCHITECTURAL, STRUCTURAL COMPLIANCE

MECHANICAL, ELECTRICAL, PLUMBING

PROJECT MANAGEMENT
