Reinforced Cement Concrete (R.C.C.)

Reinforced concrete (RC) is a composite material in which concrete’s relatively low tensile strength and ductility are counteracted by the inclusion of reinforcement having higher tensile strength or ductility. The reinforcement is usually, though not necessarily, steel reinforcing bars (rebar) and is usually embedded passively in the concrete before the concrete sets. Reinforcing schemes are generally designed to resist tensile stresses in particular regions of the […]

Layout Of Building | Foundation Plan

In this article we will give you some tips to get rid of errors throughout setting out building plan on ground. Before starting construction, the most important task is to set out building plan on the ground perfectly because if the method is wrong at this phase, lots of issues may happen later on. Because of that, […]

Different Methods of Levelling

The following methods are used to determine the difference in elevation of various points: Barometric levelling Hypsometric levelling Direct levelling and Indirect levelling. Barometric Levelling Barometric leveling, a fast and relatively inexpensive surveying technique used for determining elevations of ground stations to an accuracy of ± 3-5 ft, is a valuable tool for use in […]

Learn The Techniques Of Estimating A Building Project

Here we’ll explain some methods that can be used to generate an estimate. But first, it’s important to stress that inputs to estimates should, to the largest extent possible, come from “experts” or “doers” of the scoped requirements as this will give the best results. It’s usually the role of the Project Manager to obtain […]
