A Study on Correlation between Apartment Site Firefighting Engineers' Construction and Performance-Testing Competence and As-Built Inspection in Korea
This study is to analyze how competence of apartment site firefighting engineers in construction and performance-testing affects the as-built inspection and improve the competence of firefighting engineers in construction for successful as-built inspections. In summary, first, it was found that the construction competence of firefighting engineers had a positive effect on the as-built inspection. This result shows that no defects occur in the as-built inspection when the firefighting engineers' construction competence is excellent. The better the firefighting engineers' construction competence is, the better the result of the as-built inspection is. Second, male firefighting engineers' competence in construction was higher than female firefighting engineers' but the performance-testing competence of female firefighting engineers was higher than male firefighting engineers'. This result can be interpreted as follows. When examining analysis results of the competence in performance-testing, which is a process that usually takes a firefighting engineer 5 years of experience to be able to carry out, female firefighting engineers had better perception of performance-testing than male firefighting engineers. It shows that female firefighting engineers'competence in performance-testing has a positive effect on the as-built inspection. Third, age and career had a negative but not statistically significant effect. In case of occupation, it had a positive but not statistically significant effect. Finally, the performance-testing competence had a positive and statistically significant effect.
