Construction errors are difficult to detect once construction is complete. It is important to develop and use a systematic oversight process for minimizing construction errors during the construction process.
Thorough control of component parts during the construction process is required.
Bolts should be tightened equally and fully.
A new support for distributing the weight of piping is installed.
Thoroughness of checks after construction is going to be initiated.
