Minimum thickness of slab is 125 mm.


Water absorption should not be more than 15 %.
Dimension tolerance for cubes + 2 mm.
Compressive strength of Bricks is 3.5 N /mm2
Maximum Free fall of concrete allowed is 1.50 m.

In soil filling as per IS code for every 100 sqm 3 sample for core cutting test should be taken.
Electrical conduits shall not run in column
Earth work excavation for basement above 3 m should be stepped form
Any back filling shall be compacted 95% of dry density at the optimum moisture content and in layers not more than 200mm for filling above structure
and 300 mm for no structure
F soling is specified the soling stones shall be laid at 45 to 60 inclination (and not vertical) with interstices filled with sand or moorum.
A set of cube tests shall be carried out for each 30 cum of concrete / each levels of casting / each batch
of cement.
Water cement ratio for different grades of concrete shall not exceed 0.45 for M20 and above and 0.50 For M10 / M15 contractor
For concrete grades M20 and above approved admixture shall be used as per mix design requirements.
Cement shall be stored in dry places on a raised platform about 200mm above floor level and 300mm away from walls. Bags to be stacked not more than
10 bags high in such a manner that it is adequately protected from moisture and contamination.
Samples from fresh concrete shall be taken and at least a set of 6 cubes of 150mm shall be prepared and
cured. 3 Cubes each at 7 days and 28 days shall be tested for compressive strength. The test results
should be submitted to engineer for approval. If results are unsatisfactory necessary action/rectification/remedial measures has to be exercised.
