Over 25% of construction concrete samples found to be of poor quality in Turkey

Expert Poyraz: almost 30% of construction concrete samples were found to be of poor quality in Turkey

About 30% of concrete samples from which houses were built in Turkey were found to be of poor quality, said Yavuz Poyraz, head of the Association of Laboratories for Construction and Foundation Assessment. His words lead RIA FAN.

The expert noted that defective concrete was found in 26% of the samples. At the same time, in Istanbul, this figure exceeded 40%, which raises serious concerns against the background of the risk of repeated tremors.

According to Poyraz, there are companies in Istanbul in which 1% of the concrete from the concrete mixer does not meet the standards, but there are also those in which 67% of the concrete is defective.

Currently, 560 representatives of contracting companies are suspected of negligence in the construction of houses in Turkey.

Earlier, media reported that the earthquakes in Turkey have put President Recep Tayyip Erdogan in a difficult position, and he is yet to run for office in May 2023.
