Anyone desiring an inspection of properties within the construction impact zone can request one until the end of September. Below, you’ll find answers to frequently asked questions about these inspections.
- Where can I find information about ongoing on-site inspections?
The most important information, including a map and contact details, can be found on our website [link].
- What will be checked?
The building inspection comprises a concise description of the structures in the selected properties, photographic documentation, and the creation of a report detailing the current technical condition.
- How do I apply to participate in the inventory?
If your housing cooperative doesn’t handle applications, you can also apply directly via email at email@example.com (please include your exact address and phone number). Alternatively, you can apply by phone from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. on weekdays at 722 22 00 88.
- Do the staff conducting the inspection have construction licenses?
Construction authorizations are required for technical expertise, but visual inspections of buildings do not necessitate such authorizations.
- Why were the indicated buildings selected for the inventory? Who selected these buildings and apartments, and on what criteria?
Buildings within the designated construction impact zone were identified by the Designer based on the project’s impact projections. You can find a map with marked properties selected for inspection here.
- Why take inventory?
The inventory ensures that Residents, City Authorities, and the Contractor have comprehensive documentation on property conditions. These inspections occur before construction work commences to eliminate doubts and assess the potential impact on neighboring properties.
- Can I apply for an inventory if I have a lot of cracks on the walls?
Yes, you can apply for an inventory, even if your walls have numerous cracks. The inventory includes documenting the current state of the building, describing and photographing any cracks or other damage.
- Why wasn’t the inventory done before the design phase?
The inventory should be as up-to-date as possible to accurately reflect the property’s condition. Therefore, it’s conducted immediately before deep excavation or construction work begins.
- Is the construction of KST IV safe for buildings and housing?
Yes, the KST4 project has received all necessary permits and has been designed to meet the highest safety standards and legal regulations.
- By when can you apply?
The inventories are being conducted from mid-July to the end of September 2023. The first deep excavations in the Polsad Roundabout area are scheduled to begin in late September or early October.
- What geotechnical studies have been conducted?
The initial geotechnical investigations were performed by the City of Krakow while preparing the documentation for selecting the Contractor. Subsequent studies were conducted by the Contractor’s and Designer’s teams during the Construction Design stage. Additional surveys were carried out during the Detailed Design stage.
An assessment of the technical condition of buildings within the zone of influence was prepared during the architectural and construction design phase.
