Independent expertise: why do we need control over the quality of construction work?

At present, against the backdrop of a difficult economic situation, the problem of the quality of work performed at construction sites has become an acute issue. For economic reasons, contractors save on the quality of the building materials used, the qualifications of the engineers and builders involved. Customers, on the other hand, are delaying the acceptance of work, looking for all sorts of reasons for non-payment for work performed.

Therefore, in order to establish an objective picture of the work performed and find answers to the questions posed in the event of a dispute between the participants in legal relations, a third party is needed – an independent party with highly specialized specialists, equipment and methods of control.

Control methods in construction are divided into two types:

Destructive (destructive) methods, in which partial or complete destruction of the research object is possible during the research: dynamic tests are carried out, variable loads are applied;
Non-destructive methods, in which during the research there is no violation of the partial or complete suitability of the object of research: these are magnetic, ultrasonic, visual, auditory tests.
We will tell you more about one of the checks by non-destructive testing methods using the example of a specific examination conducted by experts of ANO “MSEB” in the framework of a court case.

By the decision of the Arbitration Court of the Moscow Region, a construction and technical expertise was appointed in order to obtain answers to questions about the volume, quality and cost of work performed under a construction contract.

During the forensic construction and technical expertise, two experts-engineers in the field of construction visited the object of study located in the Arkhangelsk region. As a result, an expert study production plan was drawn up, including:

Acquaintance with project documents;
Implementation of visual-instrumental inspection, which is a non-destructive method of control, using measuring and diagnostic tools, in particular, a flaw detector and a thickness gauge;
Performing a geodetic survey using a total station to determine the amount of work performed with greater accuracy;
Office processing of the received data and drawing up an expert opinion.

Based on the results of the examination, it was established that the work performed on laying the heat pipeline was carried out in violation of construction and technical norms and rules (pipe misalignment, flange diameter discrepancy, lack of fasteners, etc.). In this connection, experts do not recommend operating the object of study, and it is impossible to accept the work performed at the construction site of heating networks due to the presence of a threat to life and health (when a pipe breaks under pressure, people can get severe burns, even death).

Thanks to the expert study carried out by the experts of ANO “MSEB” (msebsud.ru) and which was one of the main evidence in the case, the Customer, under a construction contract, managed to avoid payment for work of inadequate quality, as well as recover a penalty for violating the quality of work.
