OK I will be doing same at Obiakpor not far from the East west fly over,December, your mixer and poker how much did it cost for a day's rental? and how much was the cost of labour per persons during the blinding?
erico2k2, the both equipment are mine but you could get a mixer in PH at about 15k per day while the poker goes for 10k per day.... operator pay inclusive.
Labour in this type of concrete work goes for 800naira per every bag of cement used... it's better paying per bag as it's puts seriousness into the workmen

While block work is ongoing in the trenches... I have marked out my 12x18 soak-away pit.
I want to use laterite dug out o this pit for my filling instead of importing laterite to the site

Re: Developing A Two-storey Building (6nos 2-bedroom Flats) in Portharcourt by malkomx(m): 10:28am On Oct 26, 2015
And we have proceeded with the excavation of the pit

I must confess... this is good idea doing this excavation at this time. See sand for filling at my finger tip. Due to the highly compacted nature of this soil formation, the volume of sand that comes out of every cubic meter dug is far above one cubic meter..... "This ground dey vomit sand o" that's how my boy describes this scenario.
Bottom line is we will have more than enough sand for filling and save me some good money wink

I thought there is need for some kind of damp proofing membrane?
nice observation. The membrane was skipped because this site is on a hilltop.
