STRUCTURAL SPECIFICATIONS

A. GENERAL NOTES

1. In the interpretation of these drawings, indicated dimensions shall govern distances or


sizes shall not be scaled for construction purposes.
2. In case of conflict in details or dimensions between the architectural and engineering
drawings, refer to the architect for final decision.
3. In case of conflict between these drawings and specifications, the working drawing shall
govern.
4. All structural details unless otherwise shown in the drawings shall follow construction
note details.
5. All concrete work shall be done in accordance with the ACI-318-71 code in so far as
they do not conflict with local building code requirements.
6. Contractor shall coordinate with the architect, mechanical, electrical and structural
engineer plans as to the exact size and location of openings thru floor slab beams and
walls.

B. CONCRETE

*Minimum concrete strength at 28 days compressive test shall as follows*


1. Columns -----------------------------------------------------------------------fc' = 20.68 MPa (3000 psi)
2. Footing the beams, retaining walls, footing---------------------------fc' = 20.68 MPa (3000 psi)
3. Suspended slabs, beams and girders----------------------------------fc' = 20.68 MPa (3000 psi)
@ initial stressing--------------------------------------------------------------fc' = 20.68 MPa (3000 psi)
4. Elevator core & stairwell wall---------------------------------------------fc' = 20.68 MPa (3000 psi)
5. Slab on Grade----------------------------------------------------------------fc' = 20.68 MPa (2500 psi)
6. Other not specified----------------------------------------------------------fc' = 20.68 MPa (3000 psi)

Concrete shall be deposited in its final position without segregation, re handling or flowing. Placing
shall be done preferably with buggies, buckets or wheelbarrows. No chutes will be allowed except to
transfer concrete from hoppers to buggies, wheelbarrows or buckets in which case they shall not
exceeded six (6.00) meters in aggregate length.

No depositing of concrete shall be allowed without the use of vibrators unless authorized in writing by
the designers and only for unusual conditions where vibrations is extremely difficult to accomplish.

Without preliminary test data, the water cement ratio for a given strength of concrete should not
exceed the values shown in the 2 ACI Code, when strength in excess of 211.0 kg/cm (3KSI) are
required, strength test should be made.
