Construction boom must maintain quality [VIDEO]


In Brooklyn, New York, and across the country, residential construction is growing. But while more and more buildings get underway, contractors cannot forego quality in favor of speed.

The last housing boom witnessed poor construction, cut corners and hasty jobs. Now, some fear those mistakes will happen once again. With the industry’s popularity, more developers are making their way into the business without the right experience.

For Brooklyn, that means apartment buildings have shown crumbling cement facades and a lack of fire doors and sprinklers. These are structures that have been completed in the last few years. Contractors cannot afford to overlook the details, as it may have serious repercussions.
