ESTIMATING CONCRETE WORK - II: ESTIMATING FOUNDATION WALLS

THE PROCEDURES AND TECHNIQUES FOR ESTIMATING CONSTRUCTION OF FOUNDATION WALLS BEARING ON FOOTINGS AND DIRECTLY ON COMPACTED EARTH ARE PRESENTED. UNDERPINNING AND EXISTING FOUNDATION WALL AND ESTIMATING THE FORM AREA IN CONCRETE FOR PIERS BELOW GRADE AND FOR BUILDING SLABS ON FILL ARE ALSO DISCUSSED. IT IS POINTED OUT THAT BUILDING SLABS AND DIFFERENT ELEVATIONS SUCH AS BASEMENT FLOORS AND SLABS OF GROUND FLOOR LEVEL SHOULD BE KEPT SEPARATE BECAUSE OF THE DIFFERENT LABOR COST PER CUBIC YARD FOR PLACING THESE SLABS. IF ALL SLABS ARE OF THE SAME THICKNESS, ONLY THE QUANTITIES FOR THE AREA SHOULD BE EXTENDED AND THE CONCRETE QUANTITIES MAY BE OBTAINED BY MULTIPLYING THE TOTAL AREA BY THE SLAB THICKNESS. THIS IS A READILY USED TIME-SAVING STEP.
