1. General

This method statement describe how we construct lean concrete for Building
Works
Pleased refer to Appendix A for the plan of three main buildings.
This method statement covers for the lean concrete of all Building Works. The
filling material under lean concrete may be varied in difference location.
Concrete class shall be approved ready-mix concrete B7.5 (Grade 15NM/m 2)

3. Backfill or Excavate to the design level
Excavation works will be carried out by manpower or by backhoe depend on
soil condition.
Backfilling works will carry out layer by layer. Thickness of each layer is not
more than 300mm.
a) Filling under piles cap of the building have piling foundation
Material using for backfilling works will be existing soil on site area or other
approved material if the existing soil is not enough.
b) Filling under directed foundation
The ground will be excavated up to soil treatment level, and then backfill up
to design level following approved design & material. Design of sub layer and
proposed material shall be submit separately.
Please refer to Appendix B for typical of filling material.
4. Formworks Design

After finish leveling and compaction works, formwork will be set out.
Please refer to Appendix B for formworks design.
Timber or steel will be used for formwork.
5. Placing of Concrete
Approved ready-mix concrete will transported from batching plant to the site
by mixer truck.
From mixer truck concrete will be delivered to casting location by bucket &
wheel barrow then pour out by showel or directly to the position.
6. Compaction of Concrete.
Concrete after pouring to position shall compacted by immersion vibrator.
7. Curing.
Curing of concrete will be carried out by spraying water periodically to the
surface of the newly placed concrete.
8. Dewatering
Two nos of water pump (one for spare) shall be arranged on site with enough
hose
9. Electricity
Electricity will supplied by stand by generator on site.
