Do you know that a lack of precision and accuracy within a construction project, can cause detrimental issues both during and after a job is completed? Within this blog, we will reveal the importance of working with a precision builder.
Precision is defined as ‘the quality, condition, or fact of being exact and accurate,’ and is a key element of any construction project.
Undoubtedly, when discussing the topic of precision building, this highlights many areas within the construction process such as:
- Confirming the building complies with planning consents
- Ordering the correct amount of materials
- Monitoring cost controls
- Accurate measurements and drawings
- Finishing on time without re-work
- Detailed site inspections
Let’s Look At The Facts
– The direct and indirect costs for design errors were revealed to range from 3% to 23% of the contract value.
– On average over 14 hours per week are spent on dealing with re-work
– 68% of construction firms stated that dealing with re-work is the biggest cause of wasted time on site.
A Precision Building Nightmare
The Hart family were thrilled about building their dream home, but 3 months after the project was completed the problems began.
It started when the doors were unable to close and began jamming. When bringing this issue to the builder’s attention, they stated it was due to the changes in the weather.
After a further investigation into the building, a list of faults were identified:
- Wall and ceiling cracks
- Roof leaks
- 20mm gaps between the window and brickwork
- 152mm difference in the floor level
And the list goes on!
After seeking legal advice and a private engineer, the Hart family was recommended to demolish and rebuild their home due to the defects across the whole property. Yikes!
