RCC WORK

FOOTING / RAFT FOUNDATION

###
**1 Name of Work & Description**

RCC (Reinforced Cement Concrete) Footing and Raft Foundation: This is a
sub-base structure of any building, which is called Foundation. All Load of The building is diverting to rock through the footing. Therefore footing is the Main
structure of any building. Footing Contains Reinforcement is Concrete as per
given design by the structural consultant.

**8 Measurements and Quantity Survey**

Footing/ Raft Foundation Concrete is measuring in 2 units as Cubic Meter and Cubic Feet.

The following are the procedures to take and write the measurements of RCC.

If the Size of Footing is 1500 mm X 1500 mm and thickness is given 600 mm, Then we can calculate two types of measurements.

Size of Footing: 1500 mm X 1500 mm

Depth of Footing: 600 mm

The volume of Footing: 1.350 Cum

Concrete Quantity

1 volume of Step 1: L X B X D1

2 Volume of Step 2: L X B X D2

Total Volume of Step Footing: Volume of Step 1 + Volume of Step 2

Shuttering Quantity

1 Shuttering Quantity of Step 1 : (L+B+L+B) X D1

2 Shuttering Quantity of Step 1 : (L+B+L+B) X D2

Total Shuttering Quantity of Step Footing: Shuttering Quantity od Step 1 + Shuttering Quantity of Step 2

Concrete Quantity

Volume of Footing: L X B X D

Shuttering Quantity

Shuttering Quantity : (L+B+L+B) X D

Concrete Quantity

Volume of Footing: H/3 x (A1 + A2 + (√A1 X A2))

Shuttering Quantity

Shuttering Quantity : (L+B+L+B) X Base of Footing

Concrete Quantity

Volume of Footing: L X B X D

Shuttering Quantity

Shuttering Quantity : (L+B+L+B) X D

Concrete Quantity

Volume of Footing: Area of Footing X D

Shuttering Quantity

Shuttering Quantity : (L1+B1+L2+B2+L...+B...) X D

Concrete Quantity

The volume of Footing at Column: L X B X D1

Volumn of Footing at Slope: (Triangular Portion) (1/2 X Base X Height D2) X Length

Shuttering Quantity

Shuttering Quantity: At Column Side (L+B1+B2) X D1

Shuttering Quantity: At Slope Side (B-B1+B-B2) X D2

Concrete Quantity

Volume of Footing: Area of Raft X D

Shuttering Quantity

Shuttering Quantity : (L1+B1+L2+B2+L...+B...) X D

###
**11 On-site Experiences**

Footing/Raft Foundation: Foundation is a very important structure of any structure which is should be accurate and
should be as per drawing without any mistakes because of all the above structures life
s depend on it.

Thankful to all readers for this huge support so we are thankful to provide you all this knowledge, we can also provide luxurious project information but in India, there are a lot of engineers and a lot of Contractors is working of the middle-class project if we will use those type of advanced technologies in such budget project cost of the project will hamper therefore we are providing basic point which needs to clear at the time of quantity survey and estimate sessions. After all the mentioned section we are going to start rate analysis of each item and after that, we will proceed for an estimate step by step.
