Squatter development or compromise: «pros» and «cons»

Squatter development in the construction practice has long ceased to be the standard of poor work performance by improving both the skills of developers and broad access to any information on-line, and through the development of modern technologies. With the advent of the SIP-technologies of fabricated construction on regional market, the construction process is actually replaced with the assembly of your own home with minimal risk of error of the performer. Since 90% of the work are carried out in the factory with an accuracy of parts to the millimeter, then build a house without errors can be quickly on the basis of the designer with his forces.

However, squatter development — it is also examples of poor construction of buildings, in cases where the developer overestimated his chances in the building trade or broke building technologies proven through generations of developers. A good example of violation of technology — building of the house with a basement on the underground river channel. This «master class» of building practice violation in the form of ignoring geodetic surveys, as at every forum is discussed the compulsory determination of groundwater levels before construction.

Natural «pool» in the basement with natural course, instead planned under the project underground garage — not only a violation of the plan, but the catastrophic costs on strengthening of the foundation and the restoration of load-bearing structures, which are rapidly destroyed by the aggressive environment and may exceed estimates for the construction of a new house.

The definition of «pros» and «cons» depends on the skills of the executive in the implementation of the mandatory scope of work and compliance with building standards. The best option of the house construction is to compromise: the works that you can perform by yourself, can be implemented in the version of «build a house yourself» (squatter), and the complex and time-consuming ones to give to professionals of the construction company with the advice on choosing a contractor.
