CPCCBC4011B: Assessment 5

What you have to dohat you have to do

To complete this assignment you will need to find a reinforced concrete or reinforced concrete/masonry framed building of commercial low rise form of construction, either under construction or completed, and present an information report covering the items detailed below.

This report will require planning and time to gather the relevant information and present it to an industry standard, a standard you would present to a client that would have your building organisation viewed in a professional light.

Obviously if you follow a building from start to finish this assignment will take some time to complete, so it is expected you may supplement your selection of building site with images accessed from the internet. If you do adopt this option, the images you collect must be consistent with the building used in the body of your report. For example, don’t include the detail of a simple strip footing when the building is a medium rise, reinforced concrete building. Similarly, don’t include a pad footing when none are required on the project.

You are reminded of the WorkCover Authority requirement to have completed an approved National WHS (previously OHS) Construction Induction Training course including the unit of competency CPCCOHS1001A Work safely in the construction industry, generally referred to as the “white card,” before entering a building or construction site. This does not apply to completed buildings.

“Project report of Construction of Warehouses on sea shore areas in Qutar with regards of various civil engineering parameters”
Submitted by
Name of Student
The Professo
Civil engineering department
For Partial fulfillment of degree
Consultancy team lead by:
Name of Student
Roll no.
Project report no.
Date of Submission
Firstly, I would like to thanks you for undertaking studies of various parameters that will reducing the cost along with building up the structure in safe taking the project under construction phase. For this work we have chosen over Project report of Construction of Warehouses on sea shore areas in Qutar with regards of various civil engineering parameters. We make sure that will submitting the report with making finding along with recommendation on or before the time allotted.
You’re faithfully
The client is seeking our assistance for knowing various parameters that affected on cost and design for construction of warehousing building in Qatar. The maximum parameters are relying on geotechnical investigation. About the ware houses, it’s the structure made for storing the goods and services so that it can be protected from external unfavorable environment.
Project description: This project is called construction of warehouses on sea shore in qutar.
Project location: The project is located nea
y of sea shore in Qata
Project floors: It’s have B+G+2 type of floor a
angement. has basement, ground floor, first floor and second floor.
Project structural detail: The project is needs to be constructed by framed structure i.e. column- beam structure
Consultant responsibilities: Make the report on particularly geotechnical investigation with various related topic affecting the cost and design to build up the structure.
Method adopted: As per standard guidelines
Introduction: The main purpose of warehouses is to provide the good environmental space for storing goods and materials that require protection from external. Prior to finalized, careful study of the site is required that
ings out the inherent advantages or disadvantages of a site. For the business man, the prefer site is the one that provide the maximum return in short span of time in the form of less payback period, more benefit cost ratio, and positive net present value.
In our case, the important factors for considerations of sites are optimal cost, easily availability of raw materials, availability of labour forces, market place, labour market, site proximity to transporting facilities including railway, road way, water ways, electric power, good road networks, cost of land for the warehouse and other costs etc. And overall we can say the concerns site have good geological, topographical characteristics.
    Though different factors involved for proper site selection but amongst them, the cost of project play a major role in decision making process, whether or not will accept the site for construction of and developmental project
As the site are located near to sea shore, the raw materials like sand, silt, water etc. required for construction are available in free of cost. Ideally speaking, the site should not be far off from deposits of materials which would be required for its construction. As the site is located near of sea shore so our desire of transporting facilities for transport of goods and services in the form of waterways are fulfilling. Near seashore places, the labour forces are chiefly available. As easy transport facilities available, so the transport cost of goods and services, viz construction materials, machineries etc are reduces. The site nea
y of sea shore is not suitable for residential purpose so that the cost of land is very less which makes the advantages for any business man to economically purchase the land for project development. The market place is also available in the vicinity of any seashore. With the aid of mentioned points for decision making process for selection of site, we can conclude that the concern site is economically viable place.
Soil investigation:
The purpose of soil investigation is to obtain the information about subsurface conditions at the site of proposed construction. The engineer who designs the foundation uses the soils report in determining what kind of foundation design to use. So, ideally we can say, this report is providing the guideline which kind of foundation is to be adopted so that the structure is not fail in nearest future. In order to writing the report, we need to follow the step in scientific approach. The stages involved in any of soil investigations includes data collection through desk study, site reconnaissance, site exploration & sampling, field test / insitu test, laboratory testing, and finally the report writing.
a) Desk study: As the name suggested that, analysis of site is made on the office without visiting the site. The source of information about the site is through study of maps, drawings, local authority information and other source of information
) Site reconnaissance: The terms reconnaissance is the general site visit without any instrumentation by the expert teams including Geologist, land surveyor, soils engineer, hydrologist etc. Over view information should be collected on the overall site layout, topography, basic geology; details of access, entry and height restrictions.
c) site exploration & sampling: This step dealt with the Investigation of detailed geology and sub-surface soil conditions. This can be achieved through surface surveys, making trial pits, boreholes, sounding, geophysical methods etc. The type of method adopted more dependent on the type of projects to be executed. In this step, it is also doing the survey with regards of collecting the information about ground water table, collection of soil and other sample for examination and laboratory testing purpose.
d) Field test / in-situ test: There are various number of test are conducted on the soil at which project can be constructed in order to capture the ground details with regards of type of subsurface soil and ground water table in order to know the shear strength parameters of soil. The test conducted on site are shear-vane, standard penetration, cone penetration, plate bearing, pressure meter; structure loading test, such as test on piles, proof loading; displacement observation.
e) Laboratory testing: After collecting the soil as distu
ed and undistu
ed sample, the tests is conducted on lab for the purpose of classification, quality, permeability, shear strength, compressibility, etc. Depending upon the nature of soil by physical judgments, the test conducted on the soil are California Bearing Ratio; test on groundwater, chemical and petro graphic analyses.
f) Report writing
This is the final step of geotechnical investigation. The report needs to be produced to clients for the forward processing of decision making. The report should contains the general project description, detail of geological details, results of boring , detail of your finding and finally makes comments and recommendations relating to the design and type of foundation to be best suited to the concern site.
Excavation of foundation can be done by manually or with the help of special mechanical equipments
We would like to prefer mechanical means of excavation: The advantages of excavation through mechanical means are as follow speeding the job done, b) Accidental case may be avoided due to existence of ground water table or soil collapse, c) the excavation can be done for greater depth as well d) Low costing. (Note the costing of manual operation is very large with low...
