Small projects such as residential buildings, schools and administrative
buildings consitute most of the structures that are executed recently in Egypt.
To achieve the safety and economic purposes in these projects, the paper aims
to study the degree of commitment in appling the stages of quality control of
reinforced concrete structures according to the Egyptian code of practising
the design and construction of reinforced concrete structures.For that
purpose,some small projects in Fayoum with similar executing circumstances
to most projects executed in Egypt, have been taken as a model in order to
evaluate the quality control stages in these projects. Moreover, the paper shed
the light on the most important factors that have positive effect on producing
concrete compatible with the requirements of the Egyptian code according to
the available metods of construction. Finally, the research proposes some
points that can help to overcome the obstacles which confront the application
of quality control in these projects.
