Reinforcement shall be cut and placed as per the structural drawings and approved bar bending Schedules. Specified cover blocks should be provided at regular spacing and intervals. Cover blocks should be tied with reinforcement by using binding wires for preventing misplacement from its location during concreting
Preparation The ground over which the filling has to be done should be cleaned off all grass, loose stones, rubbish of all kinds etc. If there is water in the area, it should be pumped or bailed out. If the plinth depth doesn’t exceed 45cm above ground level and if the exposed ground is B.C.(…)
In this case the footing consists of a simple concrete block projecting out from the column face on all sides. The shape of the footing is kept same as the column so that equal projection is obtained for the base concrete. This offset may be 15 cm. As a thumb rule, the base dimension of the concrete base should not be less than twice the appropriate lateral dimension of the column in that direction.
The anti termite treatment will be done by an approved specialized agency. The earth surface to be cleaned from wooden and any other garbage Particles. The entire surface should be leveled to the required elevation. Making 30 cms deep holes at an interval of 15 cms will do the treatment. An emulsion of correct concentration (as mentioned in manufacturer’s specification) shall be made by adding water to the chemical. This emulsion shall be poured in the holes by pouring jars and sprayed the surface by using pressure pumps and sprayers and allowed to get soaked through the holes fully. The left out 1m external for disturbed after the treatment.
Excavation levels and dimensions to be checked as per drawings. Remove all the loose earth from the pits. Do water sprinkling and ramming the cleaned surface of pit by mechanical rammer. Do the shuttering by planks and runners wherever if necessary. Mix the concrete with required proportion and water cement ratio by mechanical mixer machine and place the same in to pits. Poured surface to be rammed and finished smoothly
EXCAVATION is the preliminary activity of the construction project. It starts from the pits for the building foundations and continues up to the handing over of the project.
A construction project is a product of different information and designs from different professionals. If these information and designs are to be adhered to, the presence of their producers and designers are required. The Architect According to Bamisile (2004), the architect should be visiting site periodically for inspections to ensure that in general, the work(…)
The National Building Code (2006) defines contract documents as including the following:
