Calculating the tiles requirement for a building seems like a simple task. There are some precautions to be taken, or else you may end up facing the below challenges. You may end up ordering twice because of your estimation You may end up with colour differences on the required tiles…

We knew that the improper compaction of concrete would reduce the strength of the concrete element. Same applies for soil. Both the compaction and consolidation process is involved in construction to make changes in the volume of soil.  Since the ground soil is often removed from its origin for different…

You may have seen water dripping under the concrete surface (roof) because of the concrete surface’s tiny pore presence. Concrete must be impermeable, which should prevent water penetration. At times it loses the impermeable capacity due to the improper quality of materials and water-cement ratio. Effects of Water Seepage Water…

The material wastage is the major problem in construction that affects the project cost significantly. Some material wastages like bricks that could be reusable for brick bat coba, and some can’t be reused again in construction. However, we can not completely stop the wastages from happening while working, but we…

Choosing the right size and grade of aggregates impact the overall strength of concrete. The aggregates are taken out from the natural resources and classified into different grades. Grading of aggregates helps to identify the right aggregates for any construction works. Advantages of Aggregates Available in many locations Low cost…

The water seepage on the roof will induce corrosion in concrete, and after a certain period, the entire structure will start to deteriorate. We do not need to explain the effects of water leakage on a structure. Just pointed out a few things. Effects of water leakage Cracks may form…

Agriculture is the backbone of national growth, and the water is the main requirement to farmlands for cultivation. Not all farmlands in the country will reside near water sources like rivers. Eventually, every farm needs water to grow the crops. Many different types of irrigation systems have been formed and…

Have you ever wondered why builders or developers only build upto a certain number of floors? Is it really the budget issue? Definitely not. The FSI regulations imposed by DTCP restricts it. What is the Floor Space Index? Floor Space Index (FSI) is the ratio between the total area of…

Utilising natural resources, beyond some extent, will harm the environment like river sand that reduces the groundwater level. So that now the M sand is recommended to use for all construction activities instead of river sand. In the same way, many more new materials are invented to use in construction…
