Title: Reducing the Cost of Tolerance Compatibility Problems
Publication: Concrete International
Appears on pages(s): 20-21
Abstract:Someone has to pay when construction components don’t fit. And the cost for rework can be substantial. Such problems can often be traced to conflicting tolerances at the interfaces of cast-in-place concrete, precast concrete, structural steel, metal curtain walls or partitions, and floor coverings. Even when all components are within their industry-specified tolerances, incompatibility of the tolerances for interfacing materials can be the basis for claims, counterclaims, and litigation. The increases in cost caused by such disputes can be felt by all members of the construction team.
