7. PROCEDURE
7.1.Specification Requirement
The following types of products have been specified for each structural element,
Reinforcing bars: Steel deformed bars conforming to the requirements of ASTM A615.
Welded wire Fabric: the requirements of ASTM A497.
Type Diameter (mm) Use
High Tensile Bars 8, 10, 12,14,16,18,20,25,32 Main bars, etc.
The following points need to be paid attention to in the process of shop drawings:
1. Normally, development length shall comply with the requirements on S-01 of the structural drawings.
2. Requirements for the minimum concrete cover on rebar and its deciding factors as per the contract documents.
3. Splicing of rebar will be normally lapped splice.
4. Openings in concrete beams, walls and slabs shall be reinforced with additional rebar and to be as specified in
contract documents.
7.2.Bar Bending Schedule
From the approved shop drawings the Bar Bending Schedule is prepared. This enables the weight of standard length
and cut to length bars to be taken off. From this take-off the rebar order can be placed.
7.3.Rebar Order, Delivery and Storage
1. The various suppliers of rebar will be submitting the mill certificates to on delivery to the site. These will be
forwarded to Engineer with the yield stress tests which are carried out from random bars and tested at an approved
independent test laboratory.
2. The mill certificates will be reviewed and listed together with the heat numbers marked on the steel (rebar) and will
be correlated against the delivery documents.
3. Rebar will be stored at the stockyard in a neat and tidy manner and according to contract documents to make it
possible to keep track of the specific delivery from the factory.
4. Moreover, rebar will be appropriately sheltered from rain water and dusts to avoid adverse effects of rusting and
others.
7.4.Rebar fabrication
1. Most of rebar will be fabricated at approved factory. The rebars fabrication area is located at site for the
missing and shortage purposes. Rebars will be cut and bent to the correct details based on the approved
shop drawings and bar bend schedules.
2. In case of frustration for supply of rebars occurred in market, the rebar fabrication will be carried out at
site.
3. Rebars which have a diameter of 12mm or greater will be fabricated by using of bending machines with
approved fabrication tolerance under supervision of rebar subcontractors. Fabricated rebar will be stored
in a neat and tidy manner and according to contract documents.
4. The cut and bent rebar will be made up into bundles of the appropriate weight and then transported to the
site according to the installation schedule. Each bundle of rebar shall be shipped to the site with a tag
indicating the relevant information.
7.5.Unloading & hoisting of rebar on site
Two tower cranes will be used for the installation of the fabricated rebar. Some of the rebars will be hoisted directly to
several distributed points on the floor or to the working platform where rebars installation works are taking place and
others will be hoisted after being assembled at site.

7.6.Rebars Installing Procedure


1. The rebars installation procedure will be supervised by the site engineers of contractor. Each position of
site engineer has a duplicate staff, thus night time rebar installation will cause no problem in items of
supervision.
2. Columns and beams rebars will be assembled as far as possible mainly at the Stock Yard and then
hoisted to the designated place by tower cranes using trying to hold the rebar configuration in place. If
necessary, supplement bars or angles will be added temporarily to increase rigidity of the prefabricated
rebar. Because of the congestion of rebars within column, a part of beam rebars still need to be
assembled in place.
3. Column rebar will be also assembled to some extent at the Stock Yard. Column main bars will be tied
completely with column ties before being hoisted by tower cranes and positioned to the designated
places. To hold pre-assembled rebars in place tying shall be done.
4. Wall & slab rebars will be usually hoisted as bundles carried from the stock yard and installed manually
by steel fixers. However, if the site condition allow, a portion of wall vertical rebar might be temporarily
assembled at the stock yard for efficient installation.
5. Rebar will be tied firmly with approved wires at the designated spots. Approved supports, chairs and
spacers with various shapes and dimensions will be placed underneath or at sides of rebars to ensure
the correct concrete cover required in the contract documents for each structural element.
6. The prefabricated rebar cages shall be tied firmly to keep rebar configuration undisturbed during the
hoisting operations.
8. CONTINGENCY PLANS
8.1. Rebar Hoisting Equipment
1. One mechanic will standby to service any breakdown of the tower cranes. Even if one tower crane is completely
out of operation due to mechanical troubles, another tower crane can serve for hoisting rebars, allowing that the
productivity goes down considerably while repairing work takes
2. The rebars which have been delivered to the stockyard will be released for fabrication only after it is confirmed that
the relevant independent tests exceed the requirements.
8.2.Night Time Works
1. Sufficient manpower and equipment will be provided for all night rebar works including standby service support
personnel (e.g. tower crane operators, mechanics, electricians, etc.)
2. Adequate lighting will be provided for all work areas safe and efficient operations during nights.
9. QUALITY ASSURANCE /QUALITY CONTROL
9.1.Quality plan for reinforcing bar
The control of quality for reinforcement works on Project is listed into five separate areas and the quality checks will be
sequential, following each step as follows:
1. Review and study contract drawings and prepare shop drawings accordingly.
2. Prepare basic schedule, purchase order, obtain mill certificate and deliver to site.
3. Cut and bend rebar according to prepared bar bending schedule.
4. Prefabrication of wall, column and beam cages.
5. Site installation.
Reinforcing bars will confirm to the requirements of ASTM A615 and welded wire fabric to the ASTM A497 as specified.

delivery note of rebar will be marked with the following
Relevant items:
1. Delivery Date
2. Delivery note Number
3. Heat Number
4. Type of Rebars
5. Transporting Vehicle Number
6. Diameter
7. Number of Bundles
8. Length
9. Total Weight
10. Fabricated Rebars
Each bundle of the fabricated rebar to be transported from the fabrication areas to the site needs to be marked and
tagged with the following information:
1. Date
2. Type of Rebars
3. Place to be Installed
4. Diameter
5. Total Weight of Bundle
Remarks
1. However the traceability of each piece of fabricated rebar cannot be achieved in the practical construction
circumstances.
9.3.Control of Non-Conforming Products
1. In the actual situation on the site, if concrete cover is assumed not enough (ex. Starter bars or dowel bars installed
of the right position), a proper means to gradually adjust the position or rebar will be determined based upon
consultation and approval of Engineer.
2. As a matter of course, remedial actions will be taken immediately prior to concrete pouring or formwork closing.
When improperly installation of rebar is pointed out in inspections.
9.4.TEST & INSPECTION
9.4.1. Site Inspection Plan
1. The exact date and time of site inspection prior to formwork closing or concrete placement will be informed to
Engineer as early as possible, by using the approved forms. However, because of very tight schedule of the whole
project, arrangement of inspection time needs to be flexible.
2. The rebar work checklist attached will be provided to inspect rebar installation. This sheet will be filled by the
DWEC staff who is not only performs the internal inspection but also attends the inspection by Engineer. Corrective
actions on the improperly installed rebar will be directed to subcontractors based on the items on this sheet.
3. When a significant omission or inadequacy of length is discovered during the inspection, corrective actions will be
taken and that part or rebars will receive inspection again before commencing concrete placement or closing
shutter.
9.4.2. Laboratory Testing Plan
1. Rebar testing at an approved independent laboratory will perform as per the contract documents.
2. Three samples for tensile strength, one for bending and one for re-bending will be tested for at least each diameter
of rebar from each manufacturers and each 500 ton to be delivered to the site. Engineer will do sampling from the

bundles or rebar stocked in the site. The rebars which have been delivered to the site will be released for
fabrication only after it is confirmed that the relevant independent tests show successful results.
3. Mill certificates from the manufacturer, which include tensile and bend test results, will be submitted to the Engineer
with every delivery of rebars to the stockyard.
4. All test results and mill certificates will be regularly submitted with a summary table to Engineer in photocopies with
a summary table. The original will be filed by Engineer.
