case study on failed construction projects

  1. 1. Case studies on failure of Projects Presented By-: Sulakshya Gaur (121684)
  2. 2. Why Project Fails?? • Lack of Knowledge • Gaps in Organizational Policy • Inadequate enforcement of Policies and Procedures • Underestimating the Project • Lack of Skills and proven approach to Project Management and risk Management
  3. 3. Case Studies
  4. 4. 1) Collapse of G+3 storey building in Khed • The building was constructed when the collapse occurred. Reasons of failure-: • Proper concreting practices were not performed on site. • proper sieve analysis was not done for design mix which ultimately resulted into poor concrete.
  5. 5. • No use of vibrators on site at the time of construction of building resulting into poor column and beam joints. • lack of proper inspection. • Poor quality workmanship.
  6. 6. 2) Failure of Overhead Water Tank in the State of Uttar Pradesh • The state government of Uttar Pradesh had launched the safe drinking water project for rural population living in remote areas. The job of implementation of the scheme was given to the corporation “JAL NIGAM” which deals with the public water management in the state. However the project was a failure. • At last the problem was referred to the department of civil engineering for the remedial measures. After minute study of the problem, it was observed that various phases of project life cycle were not tested on the test stone of money, man, material, machine, maintenance and lastly wrong selection of technology for constructing the tank.
  7. 7. Reasons of Failure • The project launched had several shortcomings in the planning phase. • Location of site of project. • Poor quality workmanship. • Technology used for construction of water tank. • Improper selection of material, mix, placement, compaction, leaking formwork temperature control, curing leading to honeycombed and porous concrete. • Creating funds for the maintenance.
  8. 8. 3) 2000 Commonwealth Avenue- Boston • The structural failure and eventual collapse of the 2000 Commonwealth Avenue building occurred January, 25 1971. Failure occurred in three stages beginning with punching shear in the uppermost floor of the 16 story building. This was followed by the collapse of the roof slab and the eventual progressive collapse of the east side of the building. Four workers were killed and 20 injured as a result of this failure . • Immediately after the collapse occurred, rescue efforts were delayed due to uncertainty of structural stability for the remaining building as well as other concerns for rescue workers safety .
  9. 9. Reasons of Failure • Almost all jobs were sub contracted • No architectural and engineering inspection done • Inadequate inspection by the city of Boston • The general contractors representative was not a licensed builder • Construction was based on arrangements done by the subcontractors • No direct supervision of subcontractors.
  10. 10. • Not following the structural engineers specifications for shoring and formwork • Lack of concrete design strength • Lack of shoring or removed too soon • Improper placement of reinforcement • Little construction control on site • Owner changed hands many times
