We believe in giving only the best to our clients and never compromise on quality of our construction. Gaining customer’s trust is the most important thing for our us.
We have our concrete weigh batching machines to continuously produce top quality R.C.C. structure where each component i.e., sand, grit, kapchi, cement, and water used in precisely measured weight in every batch. The old & outdated conventional method of counting each & every bucket of grit, kapchi, sand & water and that too by an uneducated laborer has been rejected since long by us.
Our concrete cube testing machines, for every stage of construction, be it footing, tie beam, columns or slabs; samples are drawn and tested on the 7th day & 28th day of casting to determine the exact strength of R.C.C. produced and also to keep a check on all activities of R.C.C. castings. The minimum resistance of R.C.C. after 28 days of casting should be M - 200 strength. M - 200 stands for crushing strength of 200 kilograms per square centimeter. The target of standards are 100% quality control, and 99.99% is simply unacceptable.
All columns supported by an exhaustive & robust tie beam coverage where all tie beams are necessarily minimum 9-inch thickness. Even though the lift well is made of R.C.C., these too are supported by tie beams and the other ends connected with the columns to strive for theoretically as well as practically perfect tie beam connectivity. Most importantly, though the tie beam is not visible later on, as they are underground below the parking or below the ground floor, the check is always on minimum acceptable strength of M-200. All R.C.C. castings of the tie beam done in the most deliberate & meticulous manner.
There is a in a house production facility for manufacturing concrete covers again made of non-corrosive materials. Concrete covers are of immense importance in R.C.C. as covers help in maintaining minimum space between steel and surface of R.C.C. This prescribed margin of 15 MM for R.C.C. slabs, 25 MM for R.C.C. beams and 40 MM for R.C.C. columns is necessary to prevent the steel from weather effects and corrosion and to ensure that the quality of R.C.C. structure remains intact for its entire life span.
The emphasis is always quality first and then on price. All cement used is strict 'I.S.I.' only and usually from Gujarat Ambuja, Vikram, Binani, or similar. Steel is procured from reputed rolling mills like 'SULEKHRAM,' 'SIRHIND,' 'MALHOTRA' or similar. No steel of Bhavnagar re rolling mills are used. All existing & prospective clients of current projects are welcomed and encouraged to inspect the purchase bills and quality certificates.
All switches and wirings are of 'I.S.I.' make. No inferior grade supplier other than 'I.S.I.' is even allowed to offer quotations. All M.C.B.s in apartments are of 'Hager' make (Germany).
Plumbing & Waterproofing
There is a 2 stage waterproofing process instead of the conventional single-stage as used by most builders in general. All toilets, bathrooms & wash are fortified by the 2 stage waterproofing process to eliminate chances of seepages, moisture, and leakages. We also have a policy of retaining 20% of the bill amount for the plumbers and waterproofing agency. The amount is released only after two years of handing over the possession to the clients.
In the all-important areas of aesthetics such as entrance foyer, parking areas, etc.; exclusive granite and marble adhesives used in decorative vertical claddings, in spite of being 20 times more expensive than cement. These special adhesives prevent the granite slabs, tiles from falling off even after a long time stopping embarrassing and unpleasant looks in such areas. These adhesives are used wherever there is any vertical cladding of granite in the entire building.
Most buildings constructed with a combination of R.C.C. and Masonry(brickwork and plaster), whereby columns, beams, and slabs comprise of R.C.C.; and Masonry for the internal and external walls. There is a tendency to form cracks in the joints between R.C.C. and Masonry due to weather effects, resulting in moisture seeping in and disgracing the looks of the cracks themselves. Although these cracks are not dangerous in the short term, they are certainly not one would want to have in an apartment after paying hard earned money. We at Santosh Associates have a quality control procedure to form a strong bonding of joints between all R.C.C. & Masonry, by chipping a small portion of both surfaces and applying metal mesh along with durable cementitious material. This procedure is for all the external as well as internal surfaces of every apartment, whereby not a single R.C.C. and Masonry joint of the entire building is left uncovered. A specialized technical agency to carry out such works is engaged to carry out such bonding procedure for thousands of running feet for every building constructed by us. Existing and potential clients are welcome to view these activities which are carried out immediately after the brickwork is over and before the plasterwork commences.
