Excavation of the foundation trenches and colunm bases commenced after the setting out operation.
The colunm bases had varying dimension from 1200mm x 1200mm, 1500mm x 1500mm and 1800mm x1500mm

Re: #kugbobuild Construction Diary Of A Mini Estate in Kugbo, Abuja. by Harneyprojects: 7:46pm On Nov 07, 2021
Reinforcement works
The structural design indicated the use of 20mm diameter rods for the colunms and 12mm diameter rods for the colunm bases.

Pad Base and Strip Base concreting.

The layman term for this phase of work is Blinding.
The Strip foundation that would carry the load of the foundation blockwork, dpc and ground floor blockwork has a depth of 225mm while the pad foundation that would carry the colunms, beams and slab has a depth of 350mm.
The concrete was mixed with a concret mixer and placement done with labourers. The concret had a mixed ratio of 1:2:4 ( One bag of cement : four head pan of sand : eight head pan of gravel) according to BS/NS code specifications.

Foundation Blockwork
The block work commenced 2 days after the concrete works of the pad and Strip
The blocks were laid in accordance with the foundation layout drawings.
Due to the depth of the foundation and carrying levels of the pad base, grade beams with depths of 300mm were introduced
The foundation blockwork was filled with concrete.

Laterite filling / Hardcore and Damp proof membrane (DPM) placement
Laterite filing and compaction of the filling with a mechanical compactor was done after completion of the blockwork.
After which hardcore and DPM were put in place.
The placement of DPM is a regularly neglected phase in the building construction industry in Nigeria, failure to put the DPM before casting of the damp proof floor (DPC) would allow rise of moisture through the foundation block work leading to damage of screeding and painting layers.

Reinforcement works
The structural design indicated the use of 20mm diameter rods for the colunms and 12mm diameter rods for the colunm bases.

Are there circumstances where 12mm can be used for both the bases and the columns?

The reinforcement to be used is dictated by the structural design done by a structural engineer.
Its might be possible to have 12mm rods in your ground floor columns for structures with little load specifications.
But I do not trust the yield strength of Reinforcement sold in the Nigerian market, so i wont recommend having 12mm rods in colunms for building greater than 1 floor. The BS code specifies a strength of 460N/mm2 but Nigerian reinforcement have been found to have less than 390N/mm2.
