Construction Control Guidelines for Shoring And Underpinning in Site Logistics

All shoring and removal of, and underpinning shall be approved by the Master Developer and must comply with the safety requirements of all relevant local and international standards. Remedial underpinning shall be performed where existing foundations are inadequate. Precautionary underpinning shall be performed where new construction adjacent to an existing structure requires deeper excavation.

Telephone System In Electrical Construction Works

The contractor shall furnish and install a telephone system as specified herein and as shown in the drawings. The PABX shall be of the latest design in architecture and digital technology using stored program control (SPC) and PCM format. Cross bar or any other electromechanical switching system will not be considered. The processor memory shall be restored automatically upon restoration of power following a total power failure. The system must be readily available and have been installed and commissioned in the state in a similar configuration to that requested by this specification.

Method Statement For The Installation Of Power and Lighting System Wiring

Electrical Power and Lighting System Wiring

This method of statement specifies the detailed requirements and procedures for the installation of Power and Lighting System Wiring. Installation: No wiring be carried out until the appropriate tests required or in the electrical testing section have been done and the consultant has given his clearance for wiring to commence. A loop in form of wiring shall be used as far as practicable or unless otherwise indicated. Joints in conductors shall be made using insulated terminal blocks complying with requirements of this specification.

Method Statement For Installation Of Galvanized Conduits On Exposed Surface

Method Statement For Installation Of Galvanized Conduits On Exposed Surface

This method of statement specify the detailed requirements and procedures for the installation of Galvanized Conduits for the exposed surface installation requirement for MEP services of the above building.

Method Statement For Installation Of Cable Tray Or Trunking

Ladder type Cable Tray Installation Method

Electrical Engineers seldom show interest acquiring knowledge and experience on cable tray installations. Most of them think it's a concern of mechanical fabricators to be taken care of it. A proper and professional way of cable tray installation requires good involvement and coordination of people from both electrical and mechanical disciplines. If cable tray system has been installed appropriately in a project, following advantages can be counted:

Payment Application Format For Construction Companies

Payment Application for Construction Companies
Construction companies normally submit payment application every month as per the contract agreement. Until completion of the project, they get part payment from their client after submission of claim which is duly approved and certified by project consultant. Project QS collect all the relevant work details and progress percentage from the field engineers in close coordination with Project Manager.

Typical Installation Details and Drawings for Building Construction

Typical Drawings
Construction projects highly depends on typical installation details and drawings. Architects and engineers use this kind of information to reduce their work load. Employees particularly technicians and foremen who execute the project uses typical drawings as general guidelines where repeated structure, forms, shapes, operations, loads, etc. come into force.

Conditions Of Sub-Contract Agreement In Construction

Sub-contract Agreement Form
Occasionally Main Contractor of the construction work depends sub-contractor for accomplishing some smaller or part of the project that may require specialized technical know-how and installation methods. In those cases Main contractor selects some sub-contractors who has capacity to achieve the task within the given time frame. Hence both of the parties, ie., Main contractor and Sub-contractor to be signed an agreement which protects both the parties' interest. Here is a sample for Conditions of Sub-contract Agreement in Construction Works.

Quality Plan for Construction Projects

Construction Quality Plan for Building Projects
It is essential that services and systems in a building construction contract work are provided to conform to the requirements of the customer, and that the activities be effected as economically as practical. The achievement of these objectives is facilitated by setting up working procedures and practices, which collectively provide a Work Efficient, yet controlled operating environment.

Mechanical, Electrical, Plumbing (MEP) in Construction Contract

MEP Works

The acronym MEP became an integral word of a building project in Middle East Gulf region during year 2000. In the inception stage of MEP, there were involvement of only two engineering branches, Mechanical and Electrical, now it included electronics, instrumentation and communication. In some occasions, Mechatronics also partake in the project for smooth completion of the whole MEP works. Companies that carry out MEP works also known as Electro-Mechanical company which has multi-faceted technicians and engineers for effective design, coordination and execution of the works.
