Respected colleagues
If one goes through the report mentioned in the attached link, it is quiet obvious that extent and type of damage to the building is not consistent, i.e. to say that damages at various levels are at different locations ( when looking at the plan of the building). More so that damages are of different type. This points to faulty construction rather than a design fault.

If there was a design fault ; nature, magnitude and location would have been same at different levels.
So unless whole aspect of investigation is complete , one can't really come to a conclusion that this problem is due to a particular reason.

Dear Er. Kedar_Kavathekar,

Your suggestion of training site staff and workers about placing of reinforcement to suit codal requirements is not practical or feasible, as the codal requirements are too complicated for the site staff who are not familiar with all the design aspects.  Drawing is the language of engineers, and all the reinforcement details including the bar bending schedule, as I have mentioned in my previous posting, should be shown on the structural consultant's drawings only.  The site staff will strictly follow the drawings.   There is no second alternative to it.

With best wishes,

N. Prabhakar
