BITSWORKS Nigeria is a multi-discipline construction company comprising of architects, builders, civil engineers and interior designers. We currently have a brief for a client to construct 4 units of 3-bedrooms town houses on a plot of land in Ikorodu. The Site is a virgin land, the size is 36m(120ft) x 18m(60ft). We will share the floor plan,elevations and 3D views once permission has been given by the client.

Size of land - 648.00 sqm
Total area of building - 161.46 sqm
Total unbuilt area - 486.54 sqm
Percentage of site covered. - 37.9%
Percentage unbuilt - 62.1%

Estimated budget for construction - N40million
PROJECT timeline - 6 months

Mobilization to site and site clearing/grubbing started on Saturday 6th of June 2015, here are some pictures taken on site. Strip foundation will be used due to the firmness of the soil. Settting-out and foundation excavation will start next week.

The client has made arrangement with a block industry to make blocks on site and that will start next week also.

Welcome onboard guys, am sure its going to be an educative and rewarding time for us all.

The project will be executed in two phases, phase 1 will be the construction of 2 units of the terrace to completion and phase 2 will have the other 2 units completed. This is due to the projected and anticipated cashflow of the client and to forestall hanging the project in limbo, it is wiser to carry it out in 2 phases.

@sonety2k, welcome to class sir, am sure you will have a very educative and inspiring session with us.

Site logistics has been delaying the take-off of this project but am sure by this weekend, foundation excavation will start by Gods grace.

Setting-out of the building was done today with my bricklayer and some of his colleagues. We used a total of 5 dozens pegs and 30 pieces of tie-rods and 3 lines.

We left a setback of 2meters at the back and left side of the site before we marked the first corner for setting-out.

Re: DIY: Construction Of 4 Units Of 2-bedrooms Terraces [Ikorodu-I] by BITSWORKS: 5:51pm On Jun 25, 2015
More pictures of the setting-out.

Excavation will start tomorrow and hopefully by Monday we will do the blinding and start the foundation work immediately.

I just got an update from my site manager at the Ikorodu project that excavation actually started today and the following pictures show the progress of work so far.

Guess we should be done with excavation by Saturday. Material delivery will start by Saturday also.

Second day of excavation, the digging went well though we had to remove some tree roots and had to get extra hands.

I will upload the pictures of todays work tomorrow, having a bit of issue attaching them at the moment.

Excavation still ongoing today, there are a lot of tree roots and boughs that need to be uprooted and that will be done once the digging is finished.

Its begining to make sense a bit and by Monday we will do the blinding and start the foundation work Tuesday or Wednesday.

Re: DIY: Construction Of 4 Units Of 2-bedrooms Terraces [Ikorodu-I] by BITSWORKS: 4:21pm On Jun 27, 2015
More foundation excavation pictures. The depth of the excavation is 2ft deep and 3ft wide and the thickness of the blinding will be 100mm (4"wink. We will use a mix of cement, granite and sharp sand in the ratio 1:3:6.

Excavation of foundation footing completed and the space for the columns mat has been created also, work starts on the columns reinforcement today with the tieing of the floor mat and starter bars.

Sharp sand, granite and cement will be delivered today, hopefully by Gods grace, the foundation footing (blinding) will commence tomorrow.

Re: DIY: Construction Of 4 Units Of 2-bedrooms Terraces [Ikorodu-I] by BITSWORKS: 5:50pm On Jul 01, 2015
Setting out of the foundation floor mat and reinforcement columns starters for the foundation ongoing.

Delivery of 20 ton granite currently ongoing by @dayomide70.

Re: DIY: Construction Of 4 Units Of 2-bedrooms Terraces [Ikorodu-I] by BITSWORKS: 7:08am On Jul 05, 2015
Casting of the concrete foundation footing took place yesterday 4th of July 2015. The columns mat and columns were also casted. Total number of columns mat casted was 30nos.

We used 3 bricklayers and 8 labours. The mix ratio for the concrete was 1:2:4 and it was manually mixed. A total of 30 bags of cement (Dangote cement) was used, and we didn't even make a dent in the 20 tons of granite supplied by @dayomide70 (a trust worthy supplier, I was shocked by the quantity I saw compared to the rip-offs am used to, a trial will convince you).
