METHOD STATEMENT FOR SETTING OUT OF THE BUILDING LAYOUT

The setting out works is the most important activity in any execution work. It is called out in the
following way
1.The Points, which are forming the base line having certain defined references from
certain permanent structure, are established and protected from any disturbances.
2.
A theodolite having-at least count of one second is set at one of the points and is sited to any
other point to form a base line from where the offset and the angle to any point to the
proposed structure is considered.
3.
A point at a comfortable distance from the building grid which falls in the line showing the
distance from the base line is established and marked on masonry pillars is protected.
4.
Now from the above operation we have established a reference point for the structure.
5. The theodolite is then shifted to the above point and the first point is sited and is turned
to the defined angle to form a: lone parallel the grid line.
6. The above line is established and the point which from this line are marked on
pillars constructed in the above line.
7. The survey pillars are constructed at point's from where the distancelo the main point
can be measured by turning a line perpendicular to the line parallel to the grid line.
8. In the above' line, the distance to the points are measured and marked with paint so
that these points are nor removed easily.
9. The theodolite is the'set at a point established at a point from where the line already
established and the points in the other grid line, which is at a defined angle from the
previous line, Can be sited.
10. Now the new line is established and points. are marked as described earlier.
11. The theodolite is then shifted to the next point and the setting of the theodolite
establishing the points are continued till the starting point is sited and measured.
12. There, can be closing error and the error is distributed to all the points as a corrective
measure.
13. All the above points established which the reference for the proposed structure are
given due respect and are preserved undisturbed till the structure has come up to the
defined shape with the required accuracy.

METHOD STATEMENT FOR CONCRETING WORKS
1. P.C.C
The earth surface at the location is made wet before receiving concrete P.C.C of
specified grade, is transported to the location in atransit mixer and is poured down inside
the formwork erected by means of chute. It is then leveled manually and finished to the
required standards by blowing with a rammer. Curing is done by allowing water to stay
above the PCC surface in the form of pond.
2.RCC FOORINGS
The PCC above which the following is to be casted is made wet. The RMC of the
specified grade is then position directly from the transit mixer into the forms erected in
position and is consolidated by vibrating properly internally with a needle vibrator. The
concrete surfaces are inspected after stripping of form works and if defects noticed are
rectified to the specification.

RCC COLUMN IN PLINTH/PEDESTALS

The surface to receive concrete is made wet and cement slurry is poured above the starter, which
is a construction junction. The- RMC received is unloaded tray made out of MS plates. The
concrete is then
mixed well properly to' form a uniform concrete free from segregation of
bigger aggreg-ates. It is then poured inside the forms manually to a layer of concrete to a
depth of 600mm. It is then consolidated, by using needle vibrator. Then the second layer of
concrete is poured and is vibrated. Similarly concreting is done to the required height. It is
cured 'for at least seven days by keeping the Hessian cloth wrapped around the column wet.
2. PLINTH BEAM
The SM surface above which the plinth beams rests are to be made wet. The RMC unloaded
over the MS span is mixed .well and is poured inside the forms. It is then consolidated by
means of a needle vibrator. Concrete is cured by keeping the Hessian cloth covering the beam
wet.

1. P.C.0
The area where P.C.0 is to be laid is marked. The wooden runners to the required thickness free
from any twist or wrap are selected to from the sides of PCC. These are then joined by mailing
and supported properly to withstand the forces causing deviations while pouring the concrete.
• Shuttering oil as recommended is applied to the surface of shuttering so as to make the
removal of forms easy without causing any damage to the concrete surface. The side shuttering
is kept for at least twelve hours and it removed without disturbing concrete casted.
2.RCC FOOTINGS
Frames of required dimension are made with wooden runners and Plywood boards are fixed
over the frames to form the side shutter. These shutters are then placed at the required position
and are fixed properly to form a box having inside dimension to the size and shape of RCC
footing.. it is then erected properly in position in plumb by rigid support by means of steel pipes
or wooden runner so that the position is not disturbed by lateral forces of vibration while
concreting. Shuttering oil is applied to the surface of Plywood as a releasing agent. The forms
are kept undisturbed for at least twelve hours after concreting. The shutters are then removed
without disturbing the structure.
3.RCC COLUMN IN PLINTHIPEDESTALS
Column pedestal starter in concrete which defines the location, size and shape are made to a
thickness 75 to 100 mm. The shutters of required dimension are made with plywood board
fixed above frames made out of wooden runners or steel frame. Shuttering oil is applied on the
surfaces. The shutters when fixed together will form a box confining the size and shape of the
column pedestal to be cast: It is then erected in position to plumb by referring the starter
defining the location of the column pedestal by giving support with MS props, so that the
location and the plumb are again checked immediately after concreting and if any deviations are
found it is then corrected by adjusting the support props. The shutters are kept undisturbed for at
least twenty four hours. The shutters are then, removed by taking care not to disturb the
structure.
4.RCC PLINTH BEAMS
Plinths beams to be cast above stone masonry and are in between two columns. The top level of
SSM is checked and is. corrected to the level proper methods if required. The shutters made out
of ply boards fixed over wooden frames are theri kept in position to from the side shutters after
applying shuttering oil. These shutters are then fixed in position by supporting with props. The
location and alignment is once again checked after the concrete pour and corrected if required.
