Answer / narendra

a. If building is underconstruction
1. see if errors are seviour or not
if yes do reconciliation with experts
if not anlyse losses and make possible
corrections
2. if errors are serious reconstruct entire part or
whole but at any cost do not leave as it is. you can re
embers cost from others but not at the cost of structure
and human life which are supposed to dwel in it in future.
b. If building is complete
1. check the errors, whether are with immidiate
affect to stability of structure, if errors are serious
find solution with experts and immidiately do needful with
SOS situation.
2 if errors are causing no immidiate effect like
leakages, crcks, loose tiles etc. do reconciliation and get
the problem solved.
Any way, on top priority see that specification errors are
not affecting structural stability and then functional
stability and lastly aesthetic sence of the structure, in
nut shell.

2. If errors are not so serious
