Landmark Set with Foundation
The single foundation laid in rapid pace is known as 'Raft Foundation' in the construction industry. This massive foundation is the fastest executed foundation for such a magnanimous structure. It has made it’s place in the India’s construction history. As much as 505 tonnes of steel, along with nearly 2600 cubic metre of M40 grade concrete which amounts to approximately 24000 bags of cement is consumed in for the foundation. The quality of the structure has been met with the usage of best know primary steel JSW Fe500D. For a continuous pour, the foundation was divided into three blocks with high rib sheets.
This type of expensive construction method is a very rare attempt in the present construction industry. The rib sheets which are being used for the first time ever in Mangaluru, has been brought down from Delhi. Each wall has a pedestal of 600mm and grade slab with the thickness of 200mm. It took six days to complete the entire foundation with a manpower force of over 100 labourers on day and night shift.
The fabrication work is being done at two fabrication sites. The entire work was supervised by two site engineers, six site supervisors, two quality engineers, two safety engineers, and four mechanical supervisors. A structural engineer from Sanghvi Associates monitored the entire work as a full time monitor.
Anti-termite treatment has been done at the bottom and the surroundings of the foundation. Chemicals have been injected into the soil to prevent the attack of termites which is a common problem in and around our district.
