Hello and welcome, folks, to our first ever issue, of the Construction Feeds Magazine. As you may know, this magazine is a venture of our main site www.quantity-takeoff.com. We are releasing these magazines, completely free of cost, to help everyone related to the civil and construction engineering industry.
The following is the complete reading guide for the January 2021 issue of the Construction Feeds.
Any building rests on some kind of foundation, and therefore it is the most important part of the structure.
When you're short on budget and need to do some light building work on your own, cinder blocks are a great choice.
In the traditional method, we prepare the concrete structures on site, pouring fresh concrete in the place where the structure will be.
Building cheap is everyone's dream, but that falls flat on its face when it encounters the solid market standards.
Preventing leakage and seepage of water from the roof of rooms is a major concern in the long run for every building, especially for those which are in rainy climates, or are adjacent to wet rooms like bathrooms.
Testing the strength of the soil is extremely important in case of any kind of construction before the structure even gets designed.
The ground is seldom flat. There are natural slopes all around us on the ground, going up and down hills or valleys.
Building a superstructure is not easy, and so you need a proper method to erect a building superstructure.
No matter where you are working - be it in a company office or in fieldwork, government sector or private, technical or non-technical - you have to report to your superiors about your work progress.
Are you constructing your own house? Or are you the engineer in a construction company? Either way, you will have to estimate the data about the excavation on the building site.
At the point when we consider developing another house likely there is one inquiry hit in our brain that might be the cost of construction. This normal inquiry emerges in our psyche when we take the choice of building another house.
In building construction, a beam is a component of structure which resists the load of the beam's axis. Beam is also called a lintel.
RCC structures are very much dependent on the concrete in them for supporting the loads, so any kind of cracks in the concrete is cause to worry.
White washing and shading washing of the surfaces of buildings is vital on both sterile and stylish reasons.
The unconfined compression test is the most well known research facility test used to decide the Unconfined Compressive Strength (UCS) of a stone example.
We humans have always aspired to build tall and build great. And we have been truly at it for as long as the construction industry existed - well back at the time of pyramids.
Humanity and construction work has been together since the dawn of civilization, and people have always aspired to leave their creations behind as legacy.
Even though the pandemic has hit us hard, mankind's dream of building big and building powerful structures and facilities cannot be dominated.
If the civilized surface world is some kind of animal, then surely roads are the blood vessels in its body. Highways, freeways, motorways, expressways
