OVER 100 high-rise buildings, which are currently under construction in Yangon, were recently inspected by an expert group on supervision and inspection of advanced buildings.
The group has been operating since 2003 to implement construction works systematically in line with rules and regulations.
“During the inspection, we checked the safety quality environment of about 130 building sites in accordance with the guidelines designed by the group based on international guidelines for high-rise building construction,” said U Khin Maung Tint, chairman of the group.
The guidelines cover instructions related to architectural designs, water and sewerage systems, industrial designs and air systems to construct an advanced building.
The group put forward its findings on the quality of the buildings to the Yangon City Development Committee which may take action if violations are discovered.  The country recognises buildings of 12 floors and above as high-risk.
