Applying the principle of residential low rise construction

Question 1
The rein” rel=”nofollow”>inforced concrete ‘slab on ground’ floorin” rel=”nofollow”>ing system for the 2 storey dwellin” rel=”nofollow”>ing detailed in” rel=”nofollow”>in the plans is to be constructed utilisin” rel=”nofollow”>ing expanded polystyrene void formers. The site will be excavated to provide a level ‘bench’ in” rel=”nofollow”>incorporatin” rel=”nofollow”>ing cut and fill. Piers will be required to support the slab on an even foundation. a) Prepare a sketch of the plan view of the slab in” rel=”nofollow”>indicatin” rel=”nofollow”>ing the possible location of the piers You can assume the piers are 300mm in” rel=”nofollow”>in diameter. (Hin” rel=”nofollow”>int: position piers at all comers/beams in” rel=”nofollow”>intersections, then place between these at maximum 1800 centres) b) Provide a section in” rel=”nofollow”>in parts (‘break’ the sketch to show relevant parts of the slab) through the slab from front to back and through the garage, detailin” rel=”nofollow”>ing the use of the void formers and the rein” rel=”nofollow”>inforcement. Indicate the foundation and any change in” rel=”nofollow”>in floor level. c) Prepare a typical section through the edge beam of the slab. Clearly show the external wall detail to 300mm above the slab.
All the sketches are to be fully labelled and notated. Relevant dimensions should be provided. In general, an A4 page will be appropriate for each sketch. Provide a border and a title to each of your drawin” rel=”nofollow”>ings.

Question 2

Prepare a sketch of the join” rel=”nofollow”>int between the external wall frames and the first floor joists Fully label the sketch and provide dimensions and member sizes. Clearly show the fitout of the buildin” rel=”nofollow”>ing on this sketch in” rel=”nofollow”>includin” rel=”nofollow”>ing: • Ceilin” rel=”nofollow”>ing and wall lin” rel=”nofollow”>inin” rel=”nofollow”>ings • Full external wall detail • Floorin” rel=”nofollow”>ing • Skirtin” rel=”nofollow”>ing boards etc

Question 3
Prepare a sketch detailin” rel=”nofollow”>ing the head flashin” rel=”nofollow”>ing over a win” rel=”nofollow”>indow in” rel=”nofollow”>in the external wall. Clearly label all components and provide sizes of elements where appropriate.

Question 4
Sketch a full detail of the waterproofin” rel=”nofollow”>ing to the shower in” rel=”nofollow”>in the ensuite. A full detail will show all parts of the waterproofin” rel=”nofollow”>ing, in” rel=”nofollow”>includin” rel=”nofollow”>ing wall, floor, floor waste and hob. Include two options for the construction of the shower base: 1. Detail a hob constructed with a brick on edge clearly locatin” rel=”nofollow”>ing the position of the shower screen on the hob. 2. No hob with the floor level contin” rel=”nofollow”>inuous from the bathroom in” rel=”nofollow”>into the shower. Also provide a sketch detailin” rel=”nofollow”>ing the waterproofin” rel=”nofollow”>ing at the doorway to prevent moisture escapin” rel=”nofollow”>ing to adjoin” rel=”nofollow”>inin” rel=”nofollow”>ing rooms.
