The three-dimensional building sections are typically fabricated and assembled in an enclosed factory environment and then delivered to site, ready for installation. Modular construction is aimed at minimising construction time by standardising design components, providing consistent quality and allowing site preparation and building activities to commence concurrently with the construction of the factory-made modules. Snagging The process of formally inspecting the construction works to identify any incomplete works or defects in completed works. A snagging list (or ‘punch list’) is a schedule of defects resulting from this inspection. These items typically need to be rectified prior to the issuing of a completion certificate or handing-over of the works although in some cases a completion certificate will be issued with a snagging list attached.       Download (1.8MB) Old Buildings New Designs Mitchell’s Introduction to Building, 5 edition Exercises in Building Construction, 6th Edition Programme Procurement in Construction: Learning from London 2012 Modern Construction Handbook, 2nd Edition Load more posts
