16mm measured 11.9mm. SON is not doing anything in this country. We don't have regulatory body

Its always advisable and the standard is to test for your materials before putting it to use, and when such pass then you proceed to order more from same source after a limited time you retest another set of batch if you are still within limit..

This design requires 410 and the steel is doing 756.9 which is called rest of mind on my part

There is love in sharing... We also do online and live sessions trainings for New Engineers that wants to learn STRUCTURAL ENGINEERING DESIGNS.

Checking the drawing for construction wise only..

The timing for delivery is too fast and its all there in the drawing, the architectural drawing presentation is cool with me the structural some dimensions are not references to any axis while some axis are not dimension at all , on the roof layout

The foundation layout the excavation line is meant to be an hidden line ..

On the structural element i have no comments to gve because its not a design review

I wish there's a body always doing full investigation of all this collapse and re testing with documentary simulation 3D and showing it on Air maybe weekends this way we can pass the building ethics systematically to we Nigerians,

Effecting building law to a population of struggling Nigerians like us with eyes for exotic finishes go hard..

Local man cannot enjoy this thread unlike before..

contractor kindly stop posting until you refund your client and stop dragging back and forth its already established you owe him .

No one will be happy seeing you post when u owe dem and throwing shades now..

And for the client kindly note that dragging him up and down wont stop anyone from engaging him same way you did despite the warning from one user last year..

To the contractor fear God some client may not drag you legally kindly switch operations to real estate sale. Not easy to be a concept designer, building engr, and project manager at a GO ,

I understand u love to try different concept do that on personal build

Real Estate (R.E) is like other form of business which sol3 aim is making Profit , the profit is determined by how luxury the investment is projected and clique of who you know and how open you are to your target market.


Relative Examples Below.
Mr A bought a plot of land around chevron for 99M and proposed a twin duplex on it, i may sell each duplex for a profit around 60% after completion..

While suji()*)mot()r may sell for around 250% because the way he projects his brand

Mr c may not see any buyer at all because people he knows may look at the investment as something over priced..

There are many branches to this investment mode as well buying land with the hope of making profits in the future this option take the Urban and Regional Planner with surveyor as friend they most likely know the future of those area if its more of residential, commercial, cemetery or acquisition..

Your Target market should never rely on civil servant because they will build gradually and get land from co operative..

Your location maybe Good for Rental Apartment kind of only but study time value of money well..

Tips: You may run into serious lost if you intend to cheat by compromising, Bad Reviews ..

Don't run unnecessary political opposition if you like your investment

Employ young minds ...

Few lucky ones should in case

If you start growing big then the real people will locate you and you front for their money, so learn to keep investor's name and profile silent � because background checks are mostly carried out before invitations..

Reinforcement on the curved staircase was completed today. The iron bender work 3 days. The carpenter has worked 3 days with his helper already on the staircase and to complete the boarding of the risers tomorrow. It will be casted tomorrow all things being equal.

Good job Engr, do you have detailed drawing for the stair , what reinforcement and spacing was use.

This stair should be reinforced with 16mm due to Torsion and lot of internal stress ,.. if those rebar are 12mm kindly add 16mm in between them at a spacing of 175 lap length minimum of 800mm..

For user with crack and stressed deck
If you dont own the build pack out as solution to defective structure is quite expensive and i know the landlord will plaster it off and let to the nxt individual.

But if you r the owner get an engineer to determine the problem, building are like patient to engineers as well let him move around and ask more questions to observe if maybe other thing r wrong,

Lot of structural issues here now.
The user with vibration problem
If you are the owner of the build the truth is you will never feel comfortable with the vibration and you tend to feel it more than others as this is normal we as an individual react to vibration in different manners but there's permissible allowance for each structure,

Since the vibration on your build is not from external source like building close to the bridge , highway or railway's then maybe some questioning will go into the structural members serviceability limit state sizing, construction pictures, over reinforced or lighty reinforced, you made mention of seeing defect already, well i proposed in absence of not having a reall pictures of what you said retrofit using steel rather than cracking your deck and beam open..

Tell your engineer to re run the the analysis to determine the stress point maybe after NDT and some carbonation and vibration check equipment should be installed ,then he compared bth frequency with allowable etc..

even if you do that,a brand new sawing blade will cut through it and he will have access. The design is the problem not just the material used. Just like the sample below, all you need to do is to cut out one pipe and you have access

Respective of any design they can break in through the hollow block wall ,2 min max .. and neighbours wont even be aware.. even secured neighbourhood...

Solution is may God protect us..

Country wey plumber dey steal Tap break fence wall kept it there at night re break from outside and pack..

Mr okenwa mentioned scredding will fix the cracks. I saw this scredded wall and the plastering crack is still very visible.

I appreciate all the opinions given.

For those building in Ado -odo otta, does the local govt collect any money for decking. A notice was placed on my build asking me to pay 100k for the decking

I will advise you to investigate any cracks properly especially if its a suspended floor kind off , .

Kindly check the other part of the same wall if you have similar cracks along that part.

Do you have any conduit system on the wall along that axis,

That burglary when did you fix it..

How old is the plastering

Do you have does cracks before plastering the build as well.



Key note...
Bad selection of materials or overuse of some may leads to cosmetic cracks which will trouble the owner thinking something is wrong

Bad foundation and mostly absence of structural drawings gves this palava ..

Very thick plastering without incorporating chicken net is another wahala..

Lastly
i observed it's a common practice what we usually check immediately during assessment is the beam , you will see labour and bricklayers packing block to fill the beam in an attempt to stop leakages of concrete and fail to cast the btm reinforcement.. no matter d scredding and smoothness in this occasion it will likely be thunder tattoo ..
Home owner should pay attention more to the structural details rather before selecting the best tiles and POP

6 inches or 150mm

150mm thickness is a bit high except there's unevenness or special case you may want to consider exp serving a purpose of raft as well or driveway..

You may increase your DPM gauge rather than doing 150mm with your previous suggested thickness of 75mm to 125 depends on factors such as present site conditions and fund

Let’s digress a bit. What happen to stage certification before concrete pour?
.

Most time's the client will be on the contractor neck to deliver the job , the structural Engineer is not available on site to sign the note book, the contractor call the client back and the client say you can go ahead , structural engineer reach site they gve him specially made cube of grade 50 self they prepared for him to crush on lab because he no go fail..

Seneriao 2 building sold out investors still coming in more money consult your structural guy he's saying what you don't want to hear consult another person they tell you why not, but the first designer remembered you guys have optimised this building because of cost to the last straw because QS said its too expensive than budget more money no land..

As a project manager working on all this high-rise residential mix used apartment I understand during foundation 60% sold out already amounting to money able to buy some local government
