Start with Soil Investigation
Soil differs from place to place and region to region. The quality and soil type play a huge role when the foundation of the project is being laid. It’s the quality of the soil that determines whether the foundation will withstand the pressure of a high-rise building or not.
Specifically, two types of soil: Clay and Black Cotton soil, are recommended to be avoided always. This is because these soils tend to expand, shrink and swell depending upon the moisture content or water.
A mandatory soil test is conducted before the start of construction work. Ensure that you ask for a copy of the result beforehand.
Determine the structural integrity
For amateurs, it is a difficult task to decode the structural design or identify flaws in it. This is where experts should be raked in for an unbiased fact-based opinion on the proposed design of the project.

The size of the stairwell should be big enough to accommodate two people running alongside. The fire exit signs should be properly put up and visible. The emergency hooters should be well audible from every corner and should go off instantly. These are the basic safety measures, in case the developers opt for more make sure to check them out too.
Quality and Type Check of Paint and Plaster Used
As a general rule of thumb, paint with lead should be avoided at all costs. But despite regulations lead in paint remains a concern. Question the brand and type of paint used for the construction to avoid possibly getting lead poisoning.
If the plaster of the outer wall has cracks or is uneven then it’s because of the quality of the construction and its foundation is not good.
Remember usage of good paint and plaster will enhance not only the aesthetic appeal but also add to the longevity of the walls and wooden spaces.
Cases of elevators falling in a residential complex are not a new deal. What causes such a terrifying act is the inability of builders to get maintenance on time and the use of fake permissions to install the elevators. What you can do is to keep a dialogue flowing and remind the landlord that elevator maintenance should be carried out.
Ensure that the licenses are complete, the elevator to people building ratio is another factor that you should weigh before moving in. Three main elevators and a service lift are sufficient for one tower. But it all depends on the weight which an elevator can hold.
