Cheating in building construction

Introduction :The structure in general contains many elements


And everyone of them has an important role In the
Structure.
If one of them wasnt built in the right way it will affect
the building in future and may cause a disaster
so we should control all the operations step by step to
be sure there are no irregularities.

Who is responsible ?
1- the owner of the project

2- supervisor of the project

3- workers

the defendants
The owner of the project
sometimes the most important goal to the owner is to get high
quality of benefits and low costs so may be this effect on the
the building.
Supervisor
personal benefits can play a role in the project to get
More money in addition to the base salary.
Workers
waste time in the work place and take materials more than
required to get more money.
We can conclude all of the above in Conflict of interest

Where does cheating in building happen?

Other elements of

concrete buy concrete to projects with different
proprieties or lower than required ,all of this cause
problems like cracks.

problems

Cont

Amount and quality of steel


Using steel bars less than required or with size and
strength not accepted with ACI code causes many
problems.

Other elements in structure


1- Using old timber or less than the required amount
2- under compaction of concrete with vibrators
3- not giving the concrete enough time to reach the
required strength
