Thank you for this. I will check the drawings. Just that I am not comfortable with low ceilings seen in some houses.

So let us assume there is no constraints with funding, what will you recommend? 3.0m? Thanks.
Yeah. 3m is good.

Engineers and builders in the house, please what is the recommended height or numbers of blocks before decking a storey building? Thank you.
Well, it depends on what everyone wants or can afford.
If you are not following the height specified by Ur architect which you can find in the sectional drawings then you may adopt 2.4m/2.7m3.0m or even more.
Mind you; staircase has it's own role to play.

Do whatever you can to get rid of them before roofing. I roofed a site with a termite behind the fence. Those guys finished the treated wood I used to roof the gatehouse. We treated it 2-3 times but they kept coming back.
Yeah. Termite attack is a serious thing.

Oga Engineer, if it doesnt matter entirely, do your next multi-storey build with 3 inch hollow blocks... and make sure they carry dead loads e.g beams...
Leave him sir.
Stalking is his hubby.

It's not China, it's not Chinese engineers, it's not prefab homes.

Na America, American engineers and it's conventional building.


It collapsed
Even with good road network and Maintenance of accurate speed, vehicles still get involved in accident, trains derial from their tracks.

You probably know this but what I’ve learnt from builders on here is to use 9” for external perimeter and use 6” for interior partitions. To be sincere, most, not all, Nigerian blocks are pieces of shyte, structurally.

I hope to introduce a line of blocks made to international standards next year.
Very right.

Should I accept that they correct the errors and move on?
Hmmm. This is deep.

Stop all work for now.

Get an independent consultant/inspector to access the integrity of the structure and the likely cause of the failure.

If you must do it over again, I’d suggest you introduce columns to carry the weight of the parapet.

There might be more to this than just the weight of the “precast” parapet.
Yeah

But I also challenged him on using 6 inches block and he said he had done one before with 6 inchesbblock and that the house is still standing well.......
You shouldn't have believed him.
According to our tutors when we were in sch. The only areas we were permitted to use 6inches blocks were areas that the walls are said to be non load bearing.
Non loading bearing walls are walls that are not carrying any load.
Even if you were to use it, such block must be specially moulded for such purpose.

The guy is an architect. He was the one that took the contract. He was just adamant when I called his attention to the flaws. Saying that someone in medical line cannot know more than he does when it comes to building construction
This should av been a red flag in the first place sir.
Learning is a continuous process, it ends when we die.
Anyone who doesn't yield to learning is bound to collapse just as the case of that structure.
I hate the words you said Ur architect used.
