Dubai's First Buildings Pass New Quality Test

Dubai's First Buildings Pass New Quality Test

The first RERA registered buildings in Dubai that have been independently quality inspected by Realpoint have passed the quality standards established by RERA.

The buildings developed by Deyaar were initially inspected by Realpoint a RERA approved inspection firm back in 2012 and following the recent completion of rectification works they have now been certified as being technically completed. With the introduction of these inspections into the market RERA aims to encourage developers to improve the way they build and that over time this will lead to more higher quality buildings being delivered in Dubai.

James Garbutt, manager of Realpoint who carried out the independent inspections explains that the RERA requirements as set out within their circular to Dubai's developers are fairly rigorous and include many aspects that are not normally included with normal authority approvals. The inspections require specialist skills and are undertaken by our building surveyors and inspectors who are highly skilled members of the UK's Royal Institution Of Chartered Surveyors.

Over the last year we have inspected many buildings for many developers. Several developers are working towards achieving a pass score but Deyaar are the first to achieve a pass on their buildings. The inspection and quality score tests we carry on the buildings are not easily achieved and it has taken nearly 12 months for Deyaar to reach the required building quality scores.

The inspections don't just look at the quality of construction and building services but also include a scoring matrix, which determines if the buildings pass, or fail. They also include reviews of all the documentation needed to operate the building, checks to make sure there are no outstanding contractual or financial issues from the construction period and that the provisions to establish Owner Associations have been properly made.

Deyaar have now had most of their buildings inspected by Realpoint and so far five have passed. James adds that Deyaar's projects as a result are now leading the push for higher standards of quality in Dubai and it is encouraging to see Deyaar adopt our findings and advice into their new and under construction buildings. I'm sure that these buildings as a result will reach even higher standards.
