From May 27th to 4th July 2023, Site report and conducted a site assessment of a 2-story building located at the old age home in Chauntra. During these months site supervision with the old age home manager (Mr. Rinzin la). At site labour are working seven days a week from 8:00am to 6:00pm.
Our findings from site supervision are described below. Site photo on May 27,2023 (fig.1) and site photo on July 4,2023 (fig.2). For curing the concrete and bricks, water is the most important element. To have batter result as we request Mr. Mishra ji appoint a person on duty to water all building 8:00am to 6:00pm. To have a better joint between concrete and bricks they use fiber jali, which prevents the crake between two different elements.
Roof Slab and Beams:
On the 30th of May, we cast first floor slab and beams (fig.3). It’s quite a rainy day and luckily, we finished on time. While casting slab and beam I checked rebar as per structural-design or specification (fig.4). They build 230mm x 230mm RCC where there is a contract between roof and beam at inner side (fig.5), As per architect direction.
On 2nd of June,2023 they complete the changes that as been marked on previous site visit by (DOH) Department of Homes and Architect office (Fig.6). First floor brick work has start on 20 May 2023 till sell level as a first phase. Second phase has begin on 23rd of June,2023.
