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?
Thanks a lot for the response. Just wanted to know if my builder is on track, it's a remote place. The building is @ slab level, the builder says he is gonna need to increase the height of the beam reinforcement below the slab. Hope this is okay sir? Where are u base?

Johnson232 increasing beam height above drawing specification is not favourable to the pockets but if it is done to achieve purposes not anticipated during design stage then at the discretion of the builder/site engineer these changes can be made. Thanks for following this thread.... I'm at your beck and call for professional engineering advice. I'm based in Portharcout

The bottom of the trench is flat as against the undulating topography of the Natural Ground Level, as such some areas are about 1m deep while some are a little less..... an average of 900mm or 3ft.
Looking forward to working with you too

Some columns 22Nos have 4 runners while others 12Nos have 6 runners according to specification in our structural drawings.... all 16mm rebars, baskets inclusive

Malkomx nice job.

The plan is good and I like the flow but I will prefer the visitors toilet not to open directly into the living room (parlour). With this opening into the living room it means the toilet door has to be very air tight or the smell from a visitor doing number 2 will filter into the living area and may affect folks having their meals. I have seen it happen. As the case may be, look into the possibility of locating the door to the visitors toilet in the verander downstairs but it will be tricky situating a toilet in the verander upstairs so look for a creative alternative.

Your work is very good. Well done.

diordaves thanks for your wonderful observation. I've already looked at it but I left that way in order not to distort the internal aesthetic of the living room. But as you suggested the door would be airtight and since the rooms are ensuite I fore-see a sparse usage of this toilet. Thanks all the same sir
