5) First we cast starter of column having height 6 after erecting proper steel & ring in column with cover.

6) Starter ensures the line, level & size of column at surface level. level.

7) Distance and diagonals & Center lines are checked strictly with respect to building face.

8) Makes farma of column is Erecting over starter with the help of Then M.S.

9) shoulder is placed with tie rod & nut, all four sides in such a way that 1 Shoulder should fixed over the starter, than 1 6 & there after 2 0 c/c up to top end.

10) All Tie rods are tight with the help of nut.

2) For small column concrete placing is done by manually with spade & ghamella. If column is heavy than it pourd by concrete pump.

3) Concrete filled till level marked & finished by trowel. Vibrator needle of 60 is placed till get concrete is proper compacted.

4) Position of column rechecked 12 hours after de-shuttering & hessian cloth wounded for curring up to 14 days to 28 days.

5) If Honeycomb observed if any is finished with neat cement.

6) 6 cubes taken for checking for strength of concrete.

7) Record for work process, measurements & checked is recorded in M & M in process activity register (QAD/702), daily signed by Q.A. /S.I.

8) If required hacking is done @ 50 nos./sq. ft.
