Sub-standard new construction under repair


The Ulaanbaatar City Specialized Inspection Agency (UCSIA) spoke to journalists on September 26 about inspections made at new apartments built by Bogd Ar and Eco Construction. Residents of the apartment towns repeatedly complained about leaking roofs and cracks in walls. The UCSIA inspected the buildings and ordered the companies to fix the reported problems in May.

Following the complaints of residents, 48 buildings in Marshal Town, Golden Park and Temuulel apartment towns built by Eco Construction are under repair, which is now between 50 to 80 percent complete. As for Bogd Ar, 17 of its buildings were deemed sub-standard and are being repaired but the progress is reportedly rather slow. UCSIA sent an official statement to Bogd Ar demanding that the company accelerate the repair work and finish before winter approaches.

UCSIA will continue its inspection on apartments that have become operational and follow up on the repair of sub-standard buildings, warning construction companies to build only high standard buildings to avoid future issues.
