on-going perimeter fence work

Using concrete as pillar for fencing is quite expensive, is the land waterlogged?
Re: Developing A Two-storey Building (6nos 2-bedroom Flats) in Portharcourt by malkomx(m): 6:40pm On Oct 01, 2015
the land is not water-logged. structurally this is how a fence should be strengthened. Though the re-bars are of small sizes. 10mm

@preshylar
the centre to centre spacing of the stirrups on the pillar is 300mm while the pillar spacing is 3m.
pls note that 3.5m spacing between pillars will also serve
we used 8mm rods for the stirrups

thanks Johnson232
we're using 1:4:5
this is because we want to be economical with cement since these are not really load-bearing per se
the column for the fence is 225mmx225mm (9"x9"wink
pls note that the fence itself is of 150mm (6"wink blocks, so the columns have a 75mm (3"wink projection outside.
But gate columns are bigger. They are 450mmx450mm (18"x18"wink reason being that our gates are quite weighty
Thanks for the response my brother. Would u suggest this same mix for a storey building? For the columns, slabs and beam?

malkomx:

If you are working with the right sizes of re-bars, bent and tied to specification as provided on your structural drawings.
and you are using the 42. 5R grade Portland cement then this mix will work for your columns, slabs and beams.
But you must ensure strict supervision and make sure you don't allow them to over-fill the head-pans or wheelbarrows during batching
Thanks boss.
I really do appreciate...
When do u propose to start the duplex?

Pls bend to give 1-inch or 25mm concrete cover. i.e. 175mm for the 225 column and 400mm for the 450 column measuring out-to-out. @ what stage is your building now johnson232?
