Construction of the Superstructure

After the substructure is finished, the superstructure is built. In most cases, a framed structure is constructed first, followed by brick walls. The building layout dictates the placement of enough windows and outside doors. Other works in this category include:

  • Roof or siding construction
  • Heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems are installed.
  • Connection lines for power and water are acceptable.
  • As needed, perform insulation work to guard against illumination.
  • Waterproofing of the walls is provided.
  • Walls and surfaces are being plastered and finished.
  • The installation of flooring is completed.
  • Painting both the exterior and inside

List of corrections

When the job is finished, the contractor inspects each component and creates a punch list. The punch list is a list of structural elements or places that were not built properly or to a high-quality standard. The contractor in charge later corrects this.

Period of Warranty

Once the project is completed, the contractor establishes a warranty period and handed over to the owner. Any flaws discovered in the building must be corrected and replaced by the contractor in charge within this time frame. Manufacturers and suppliers provide warranties on materials and appliances.
