How To Build Cost Effective House | Cost-Effective Construction | Breakup Cost For Housing

26 July 0
COST-EFFECTIVE CONSTRUCTION The building is a product involving time, material, labour and other resources under various constraints. Today’s construction scenario presents steeply escalating material costs and time overrun leading to project cost escalation, in spite of the earnest efforts to keep the situation within limits. The total costs of a building can be defined as the sum of the costs…

ANTI-TERMITE TREATMENTS IN BUILDINGS | CONSTRUCTION WORKS | LCETED

25 July 0
ANTI-TERMITE TREATMENTS IN BUILDINGS The termite proofing treatment should invariably be given in all types of buildings during the construction stage. It is because of the fact that during the post-construction period, it is extremely difficult and costly to control termite growth. Care should be taken to ensure that no bridge is formed between any part of the building and untreated soil. In orde…

METHOD OF LEVELLING - COMPUTING REDUCED LEVEL USING RISE AND FALL METHOD

23 July 0
COMPUTING REDUCED LEVEL USING RISE AND FALL METHOD This method consists of determining the difference of level between consecutive points by comparing each point, after the first, with that immediately preceding it. The difference between their staff readings indicates rise or fall depending on whether the staff reading at the point is smaller or greater than that at the preceding point. The reduced…

Fly Levelling | Why We Do Fly Levelling? | Procedure

22 July 0
FLY LEVELLING Fly levelling is a process of finding the level difference between two points and the levelling consists of taking back sights and fore sights only and not intermediate sights. Differential levelling is the determination of level difference between two points; check levelling is finding the level difference between points in a way of checking the accuracy of levelling works already done…

METHOD OF LEVELLING - COMPUTING REDUCED LEVELS USING HEIGHT OF COLLIMATION METHOD (HI METHOD)

22 July 0
COMPUTING REDUCED LEVELS USING HEIGHT OF COLLIMATION METHOD (HI METHOD) In this method, the reduced levels of points are computed by calculating the reduced levels of the plane of collimation for each set up of the instrument. The height of collimation is obtained by adding the staff reading, which must be back sight to the known reduced level of the point on which the staff stands. Reduced levels …
