Construction basics  --  'Good Quality Work shows by itself'

A building under construction in South Delhi region, INDIA

About the snapshot:

This Snapshot is of a building under construction in one of the prominent colonies of Lajpat Nagar that is located in the heart of South Delhi region.

Its well known that any construction is a visual treat to eyes as well as worth its money if it is executed incorporating top-notch quality work. The edge lines, corners and surfaces of the reinforced concrete framed structure, viz., columns, beams, slabs, etc. are absolutely clean, with no significant signs of honeycombing or bad form work.

The masonry (brickwork) is neat and tidy with the bricks looking well-burnt, and the brick joints nicely raked and finished with equal mortar bands. The other structural and/or non-structural elements like lintels, stairs, sunshades, etc. are also equally well done.

Credit to the owners and the construction team involved with the project..

  1. Nice pic. I wish my home one day is as big as this one in the pic is :-) SMILES!

  2. Very neat construction indeed. The concrete finishing, brick work, stairs... all looking fabulously done. Kudos to the builders and owners
