SGS to Provide Bygging India Ltd with Consultancy Services for Construction of Chimneys

(PresseBox) (Geneva, ) SGS, the world's leading inspection, verification, testing and certification company, has been awarded a contract by Bygging India Ltd to provide consultancy services for the construction of chimneys in India. During the yearly contract, SGS will offer Quality Assurance and Quality Control at fifteen chimney construction sites in India.

SGS India was awarded a contract by Bygging India Ltd, the leading construction company in the chimney and silo field in India, to provide consultancy services for the construction of chimneys. As per the plan, SGS will start operations during the first week of September.

Consultancy services during the construction of chimneys, including Quality Assurance and Quality Control, are of utmost importance as any construction failures may destabilize the whole chimney and lead to material damage and personal injury. However, such services require extensive technical competence and experience.

In order to ensure quality throughout the whole construction process, Bygging India Ltd sought a reliable thirdparty inspection and testing company. As a result of SGS's extensive experience in similar projects, Bygging India Ltd awarded SGS India the contract to perform Quality Assurance and Quality Control for the construction of chimneys at 15 construction sites in India.

During the yearly contract, SGS experts will ensure the quality of chimneys with respect to defined Indian standards and regulations, such as IS codes and MORTH specifications. The inspection of the construction process will be performed in accordance with a checklist which SGS has already developed for this project in line with approved specifications and standard operating procedures.

A team of at least two SGS experts at each construction site will perform Quality Assurance and Quality Control checks at every 200 mm of the chimney's stage layer and check it for any discontinuities, openings and sizes as well as overall construction quality in terms of form work and material used in the structure. Due to its extensive competence and experience in similar projects, SGS will ensure quality and compliance with all international and local regulations.

As chimney construction is very often performed at height and in remote areas which lack basic infrastructure, the biggest challenge of such projects is to find experts with the technical expertise and experience in chimney construction.

SGS is one of very few companies with the requisite technical expertise and manpower to supervise chimney construction. As a result of SGS's competence and experience, the contract with Bygging India Ltd will be renewed annually in accordance with the client's requirements. Moreover, SGS operations may be extended to other countries in which Bygging India Ltd executes its work.
