Some Important Points to be considered by Site Civil Engineer:


Site Engineers are the main technical personality which encounters with the real field or site of works. Site engineers should take care and handle of every technical error, situations, and circumstances in the construction work. Some important points to be considered by site engineers are discussed in points below.

Considerations for Site Engineer:

Longitudinal reinforcement not < 0.8% and more than 6% of gross C/S.

Minimum bars of a square column is 4 No’s and 6 No’s for
circular column.

Lapping isn't allowed for the bars having diameters additional than 36 mm.

Chair Spacing max. spacing is 1 m (or) 1 No per 1 sq.m.

For Dowels rod minimum of twelve millimeter diameter ought to be used.

Chairs minimum of twelve millimetre diameter bars to be used.

The minimum thickness of the slab is 125 millimeter.

Dimension tolerance for cubes + 2 mm.


The compressive strength of Bricks is 3.5 N/mm2





The freefall of concrete is allowed max. to one.50 m.

Lap slice to not be used for bar larger than 36 millimeter.

In soil filling, as per IS code, three samples ought to be taken for core cutting test for every 100 m2.

Water absorption of bricks mustn't be over 15%..

PH of water mustn't be < 6.

In steel reinforcement binding wire needed is 8 kilo per MT.

Main bars within the slabs shall not be < 8 millimeter (HYSD) or 10 millimeter (Plain Bars) and the distributors not < 8 millimeter and no more than
 1/8 of slab thickness.
