QUALITY IMPROVEMENT NEEDED AMID CONSTRUCTION BOOM

Over the last decade, the construction industry in Phnom Penh has been growing quite notably. More and more high-rise buildings, sub-cities, and boreys have been continuously and progressively built and old buildings have been replaced by the new.

At the same time as this rapid growth, Phnom Penh citizens are increasingly recognising that many complaints about standards are coming out after buildings have opened for the service. For instance, concrete roof tops and toilets start to leak, flooring begins to de-bond, and cracks appear on the plastering on walls which requires a lot of money to repair and possibly demands nonstop, ongoing repairs. Generally, these matters come from two sources:

     Lack of product understanding

     Poor workmanship

By recognising these issues, Dynamic Scientific brought in Master Builders Solutions, a brand of BASF construction chemicals originating from Germany to resolve such problems. 

Minimise concrete issues?

What we need to consider most is the quality of concrete, which plays an essential role as a Reinforced Concrete (RC) structure supports the building load. If the concrete is poor, it automatically affects the next stage of work, and the whole structure can potentially collapse after a few years. BASF’s high technology admixtures are produced to deal with this problem since we deeply study the concrete composition such as aggregate, cement, water and admixtures, in term of quality and cost saving. Smart Dynamic Concrete, an advanced technology of self-compacting concrete, assures the facility of flow-able concrete without vibrators. So, using Smart Dynamic concrete is a smart solution for your project in terms of concrete performance.

Hate water leaking?

Obviously, no one can assure a 100% stop to water leakages since they are linked to several factors. However, to prevent it, we still have the following solutions:

     Understand well about the product/product knowledge: Know about product usage and performance clearly before choosing

     Technical know-how:

-  Surface preparation: Repair all lousy concrete/substrate, remove all laitance and dust, technically seal around the piping system and other corners.

-  Keep the surface clean

     Use skilled workers that have been trained for the product and make sure they understand and follow the procedure seriously at the workplace

     Do inspections for quality control

    Site coordination: Sometimes even though the waterproofing has been done, the tile-laying team damages the waterproofing and lays the tiles on it without repair it, which then causes leaks​.
