At AMDC, we have simplified our construction processes into three key stages – Design, Construction and Delivery. Each of these stages go through a rigorous Quality Control and Assurance process to ensure that we deliver real estate assets that are safe, comfortable and delivers value to their owners or investors.
Our Quality Control process includes a well defined process of pre-qualification of vendors, assembling of experienced Project consultants, and defined quality parameters.
Our Quality Assurance process archives over 4,000 drawings and 100 procedures; ranging from controlled designs to earth works, building service designs, and how the procedures guide our development process.
Each of our construction process goes through the following QMS processes:
- Design: At this stage, we produce a detailed architectural, structural, Mechanical & Electronic, and infrastructural drawings for execution. These drawings are taken through a carefully defined process to ensure that all forms of errors are taken care of, and solutions are proffered to potential challenges.
- Construction: This stage in our building process is guided by several procedures and processes, which include: testing of soil to confirm strength and sameness with the design soil strength; setting out of boundary approval by consultants; excavation and blinding of excavated bases for the foundation; procurement of reinforcement and test certificates from suppliers and confirmation of rebar strength for every batch of reinforcements procured (tensile strength test).
Other QMS process in this stage include: batching of concrete with reference to pre-submitted concrete mix design, flow rate test during concrete casting to achieve a workable concrete for ease of placement and application; collection of concrete samples, at 7 and 28 days respectively, for concrete compressive strength test in order to confirm that the finished concrete produced meets the minimum design strength (e.g. 25n/mm2 or 30n/mm2); and approval at every stage of construction activities by the consultants (Architectural, Structural, Infrastructural and M&E).
At the end, the finished carcasses are inspected for any form of defects to cater for remedial works, and samples of specified materials are brought in for approval before final installations.
- Delivery: At this stage, the entire system is tested to detect faults and appropriate actions are carried out on such defects prior to commissioning. The as-built drawings are also produced, taking note of all changes, before commissioning for use.
