DM penalizes violating consultant and contractor

Eng. Marwan Al Mohamed, acting director of buildings department at Dubai municipality informed that the municipality has completed the investigation on the roof’s collapse of swimming pool under construction in Al Shabab Al Arabi Club in Al Mamzar during the concrete pouring.

‘The technical committee of department has found that the accident which injured four workers is due to the violation of work rules by the project consultant as they subcontracted the work to an unauthorized contractor to work in Dubai,’ Mohamed said.

‘The subcontractor has no efficiency in the construction field and committed serious technical mistakes during the concrete pouring works. As per the Local Order No 3 of 1999 both consultant and main contractor will be responsible for the faults and violations in the project execution,’ he said.

‘The civic body hereby urges all consulting and contracting companies not to subcontract with any unauthorized companies that not registered with Dubai Municipality,’ he further said.

‘The municipality will apply the penalties stipulated by the law on violators in order to protect the public life health and properties,’ he added.
