The process of pouring concrete during the construction of houses in Turkey.

March 4, 2023

Many of our clients have purchased or are just planning to buy real estate at the excavation stage, so they are often interested in the process of building houses. We have already told you about the quality standards of house construction in Turkey. Today we will tell you in detail how the process of pouring concrete takes place, because this is one of the most important stages of building a house, on which the strength of the entire structure depends.

- The process of quality control of concrete begins from the moment it is poured into a concrete mixer. The number of the machine, the date and time of shipment of concrete, and other data are entered into the database. The driver is issued a document with a QR code, where all the necessary information is indicated.
- With the help of a satellite, the path of the car is tracked, so deviations from the route are excluded.
- As soon as the concrete is delivered to the construction site, three samples are taken from each machine. They are placed in special flasks. After that, builders can start pouring concrete. Moreover, each batch of concrete is poured together with an electronic chip, which contains all the information about this concrete.
- The number of each bulb is entered into a common database. After that, they are sent to a laboratory, whose employees check the quality of concrete.
- The first flask is checked by chemical analysis on the 7th, and the second - on the 14th day after pouring concrete. The third sample is tested by physical stress for deformation after 28 days.
- If at least one of the stages is not passed successfully, then the entire batch of concrete is subject to disposal, and the floor filled with it is demolished and built anew. At the same time, all costs are reimbursed by the plant that provided substandard concrete, so there is no point in developers silencing or hiding the results of the examination.

We hope the information was useful and relevant.

Is it possible to buy an apartment cheaper from a developer than from an agent?

Our clients often ask this question both to us and to representatives of the developer. Let's look at the scheme of work of the developer and the agency and understand what and where it comes from. We will not intrigue you and immediately answer: the price of real estate will be the same for both the developer and the real estate agency. This is a bit unusual for residents of the post-Soviet space, who know that buying an apartment with the assistance of a real estate agency turns out to be more expensive.

Turkish breakfast

Breakfast in Turkey is a whole ritual that reveals the culture and traditions of the country. It is called Serpme kahvaltı. Turkish breakfast can be described in two words variety and abundance. Several types of cheeses, vegetables, avocado, sausage, fried potatoes, fried eggs or menemen (omelet with tomatoes, pepper and spices) are served on the table. A separate place is occupied by strong tea, which is served in tulip glasses and fresh pastries: white bread, tortillas and, of course, simits (soft bagel with sesame seeds). Turks just love fresh, fragrant pastries. Without this, Turkish breakfast is not breakfast.
