DTCP orders structural audits for five high-rise projects in Gurugram

The Department of town and country planning (DTCP) has directed structural audits of five high-rise residential projects along Dwarka Expressway.

Residents have filed most complaints alleging poor construction quality and structural faults.

The five projects: Sector 107 M3M Woodshire, Raheja Vedaanta in 108, Atharva in Sector 109, Brisk Lumbini in Sector 109 and Mahindra Aura in Sector 110A, would be inspected for structural stability and quality of construction.

According to an order issued by KM Pandurang, DTCP Director, an audit of these high-rise buildings would be conducted by a professional team from Indian Institutes of Technology (IIT)-Roorkee.

It is the same method IIT-Delhi is carrying out inspection Chintels Paradiso, where on February 10, the living rooms of five flats in Tower D collapsed vertically from the sixth to the second floors.

The order informed that the audit team would also flag problems associated with the stability of the structures and the quality of the materials used for construction.

The team would also recommend measures to fix the defects. The audit cost would be paid by the developers.

RS Batth, the District town planner, told the media that the department would also submit a report after inspecting the complaints.

He said that their teams would inspect nearly 60 projects, mainly in newly built sectors, with residents and developers.

Within 30-45 days, a report on the findings would be sent to the headquarters. Batth also revealed that the department wrote to the director requesting his approval for the audit after it received several complaints alleging structural defects in various highrise societies via field offices.

The residents’ welfare association (RWA) in M3M Woodshire have been asking to fix the water seepage in basements, wall damages and columns and corrosion of steel reinforcements.

The people living in Raheja Vedaanta and Atharva have also filed many complaints emphasising poor construction quality.

They have also alleged seepage in the basement and cracks on pillars and walls.

Likewise, residents of Brisk Lumbini have submitted complaints on plaster chunks dropping from balconies, cracks on pillars and seepage in the basement.

In Mahindra Aura, there have been cases of plaster pieces falling off balconies besides seepage in shaft areas and waterlogging in the basement.
