Reconstruction of production facilities. Technical supervision
Time does not stop. Under its influence, the load-bearing structures of any structure weaken, communications wear out, and their appearance becomes irrelevant or scruffy.
And if, by all means, it is necessary to save the object, to breathe new life into it, then you will have to follow the path of reconstruction.
And WHAT IS IT, THIS “WAY OF RECONSTRUCTION”?
A serious amount of construction activities, which allows you to rebuild, modernize the entire building, some of its parts or only utilities, is a reconstruction. During this difficult process, it is possible to:
completely or partially replace and strengthen even hard-to-reach structural elements;
to build new and replace communications that have fallen into disrepair;
repair of flights of stairs and elevator shafts;
changing the appearance of facades;
increase in the amount of usable area.
WHAT WILL BE RESULT?
First of all, you need to understand what should happen as a result of future work. The goal may be to increase rental, retail or production facilities. Perhaps the task is to give the facades a modern sound or to modernize life support systems. You can give the desired shape and change the characteristics of a small living room, and a sports facility, and a business center and even a large industrial facility. This will require some preparation activities.
NECESSARY ACTIONS BEFORE THE RECONSTRUCTION BEGINS
Get a conclusion about the degree of wear of all internal networks of the building and its structures.
Assess the bearing capacity of the foundations according to the results of engineering and geological surveys.
Find out all the dimensions and areas of the object, or find the documents by which its construction was carried out.
Prepare a reconstruction project
Carry out a series of approvals with the supervisory organization and obtain permission for reconstruction work.
Now you can begin to implement ambitious plans. If competent and independent representatives of the technical supervision service take part in the process, then there can be no doubt in the successful completion of the reconstruction. The work will be carried out efficiently, and the costs will remain within the budget.
WHAT DO SPECIALISTS OF TECHNICAL SUPERVISION DO?
To begin with, they will conduct a full verification of project documentation. Remodeling an existing building is much more difficult technologically than building an object from scratch. The reconstruction process is fraught with dangers, unpredictable risks and costs, therefore, in order to protect it as much as possible, they begin to carry out supervision long before people and equipment go to the construction site. Verification of the project is given a lot of attention. If it is performed efficiently and in full, then it is possible to predict the entire course of the upcoming construction and installation works, and at the same time complete them in a timely manner. The material costs allocated for the reconstruction are also optimized. The foregoing is important, since a large-scale construction process involves serious financial investments.
The next step of the staff of the supervisory company will be a careful analysis of the estimated documentation. In order for large investments to be justified, the estimate must comply with the decisions made in the project, the planned technological processes must be appropriate, and the established prices for work and materials must comply with the regulatory or average market prices.
Properly compiled and verified budget estimates give the customer a complete picture of the upcoming costs and an understanding of exactly where the invested funds will be spent.
When the immediate stage of reconstruction begins, representatives of technical supervision daily monitor compliance with safety regulations. This is especially important if work is carried out in buildings with unreliable structures.
Also, experts are looking to ensure that the technology of work is carried out without violations and is fully consistent with the project.
And finally, when all work on updating the facility is completed, technical supervision will prepare a set of executive documentation. These reporting materials must be presented to the acceptance committee. They are also necessary in the process of putting the facility into operation.
