Site Preparation Concreting

Submitted by on Thursday, 8 January 2009No Comment

sb05sA building site should be level and clear of large rocks or old stumps. Vegetation must be removed and the site formed into a slight crest so water runs away from the construction area in all directions. It is much easier and more economical to do this before any assembly work begins.

In addition to a slab or floor, buildings require concrete footings below each column. These may be mass footings (concrete pads) or bored piers. They require steel reinforcing in the form of rods and/or prefabricated cages. Consult the footing plan provided with the building before commencing any work.

This page is intended as a general guide for placing concrete slabs, but similar comments apply to placing concrete footings. A soil test should be conducted to determine the suitability of the site and aid the design of footings.

Note that the below information is only intended as a brief outline of the basic steps required to place a concrete slab. Site preparation, concreting and erection of steelwork are best done by qualified and licensed tradespeople. Contact your Steel Build Masters who have extensive experience in all aspects preparation and construction.
All construction sites and shed erectors should comply with occupational health and safety requirements .
