“Quality Audit” (QAudit) – in order to make sure Quality Control Measures are practiced at the predefined score level
“Design to Cost” (DTC) – in order to design your home within your budget
“Lump Sum Fixed Price” (LSFP) – in order to enjoy the financial freedom from construction cost hikes
“Value for Money” ( VFM) not only measures the cost of goods and services, but also takes account of the mix of quality, cost, resource used, fitness for purpose, timeliness and convenience to judge whether or not, when taken together, they constitute good value. Lex Duco describes VFM in terms of the ‘three Es’ – economy, efficiency and effectiveness.
With Lex Duco, everything is less expensive while maintaining the highest quality possible. This objective is achieved by using 3 techniques that you cannot use on your own.
Lex Duco uses some Value Engineering principles to limit unnecessary costs while maintaining the highest quality and increasing your overall house value.
Some non-load bearing internal walls can be converted to 4 ½” thk and/or 6” thick walls depending on the circumstances. Structural Engineer may design 6” x 12” columns to suit such walls as well. This action reduces the cost of walls for sure, but the most effective saving is on the floor area.
If formulated properly, it is possible convert around 200- 300 sq.ft of “Unusable Floor Area” to “Usable Floor Area” in an average size home. The direct effect for the client is that he has just received an additional “Usable Floor Area” at no extra cost but a saving on walls.
The added value will be over Rs. 1 Mn*** for the building as far as the usable floor area is concerned.
You can never expect this from an average house designer or architect since they are only concerned about the attractiveness of the house.
Lex Duco employs a Quantity Surveyor to budget your project to the last brick so that we know the exact amounts of material we need for the project, where builders cannot come up with various explanations to request more materials.
Quantity surveyors are expensive if you use their service on a single project.
We have a very high bargaining power as a professional organization, where we can buy above services and materials for your project at considerably low prices.
We believe that every project needs multi-layer responsibility hierarchy in order to achieve quality control standards and therefore we have employed three layers of professionals to deliver nothing but the practically possible best.
They are professionals and together with our state of the art project management systems, they deliver the best practically possible quality as the market demands. Lex Duco is the market leader for many years now and this is the secret behind our ever-growing reputation for unmatched construction and finishing quality.
We have developed and implemented a state-of-the-art next generation quality controlling system which is monitored by a sophisticated IT system in order to make sure that the civil engineering standards are followed by our Technical Team. This system is known as the “Quality Ensuring System”.
The entire Technical Team (Project Manager, Asst. Project Managers, Technical Officers and site supervisors) has to follow the system and maintain system records as well as offline records so that the quality of construction is ensured.
QES also includes a strength assessment for concrete work: Testing of concrete usually happens only on demand or with much reluctance; however as a part of Lex Duco’s QES, all Concrete will be tested for its strength and the report will be made available to the clients.
The testing method employed is carried out as per ASTM C805 (American Standards for Testing and Material) and the device used is well known “Schmidt Hammer”. This test is 100% non-destructive and widely used all around the world.
Lex Duco uses many standard practices and the number is still counting. These practices are applied to make sure the construction is usable, durable and safe for the users.
Some examples are;
