DESIGN AND DETAILING ARE IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE REQUIREMENTS OF THE
NSCP 2001 NATIONAL STRUCTURAL CODE OF THE PHILIPPINES AND ACI CODE
(ACI 318-02)

2.0ELEVATION
UNLESS OTHERWISE NOTED, ALL STRUCTURAL ELEVATION ARE IN MILLIMETERS,
STATIONS AND LEVELS ARE IN METERS. ELEVATIONS ON STRUCTURAL DRAWINGS
ARE RELATIVE TO THE STRUCTURAL GRADE SLAB FINISH OF THE BUILDING AS EL
+0.0000 WHICH IS EQUAL TO PROJECT DATUM. (SEE CIVIL DRAWINGS.)

3.0DIMENSION
ALL DIMENSIONS ARE EXPRESS IN MILLIMETERS UNLESS NOTED OTHERWISE DO
NOT SCALE THE DRAWING, USE WRITTEN DIMENSIONS ONLY

4.0COORDINATES
COORDINATES SHALL BE IN ACCORDANCE WITH AREA PLOT PLAN

5.0SITEWORK & EARTHWORK


SITEWORKS SHALL BE IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE APPLICABLE TECHNICAL
SPECIFICATIONS. NO FOUNDATION SHALL REST ON NEWLY BACKFILL ELEVATION.
BACKFILLING MATERIALS SHALL BE IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE PROJECT
SPECIFICATION FREE FROM ORGANIC MATTER, RUBBISH, AND OTHER
DELETERIOUS MATTERS ETC.

6.0CONCRETING WORKS
BEFORE CASTING OF CONCRETE, SIZE, AND LOCATION OF ALL OPENINGS
REQUIRED FOR DUCTS, PIPES AND FOR ALL PIPE SLEEVES, ELECTRICAL
CONDUITS AND OTHER ITEMS TO BE EMBEDDED IN CONCRETE OR OTHERWISE
INCORPORATED IN STRUCTURAL WORK SHALL BE CHECKED BY THE
CONTRACTOR SUBJECT TO OWNER ENGINEER APPROVAL
ALL WORK MUST BE CARRIED OUT IN SUCH A WAY NOT TO CAUSE ANY DAMAGE
TO EXISTING STRUCTURES OR PUBLIC FACILITIES.

ANY DAMAGE CAUSED TO EXISTING STRUCTURES MUST BE PREPARED BY THE


CONTRACTOR AND HIS OWN EXPENSES.
CONCRETE SHALL BE TESTED BY INDEPENDENT LABORATORY AND RESULTS
SHALL BE FORWARD TO THE CLIENT ENGINEER AND THAT IS PART OF THE WORK
APPROVAL.
TESTING OF CONCRETE FOR ALL STRUCTURAL ELEMENT SHALL PASS TO THE
DESIGN REQUIREMENTS, TWO SAMPLES OF CYLINDER PER STRUCTURAL
ELEMENT.
STRUCTURAL ELEMENTS ARE FOOTINGS, COLUMNS, BEAMS, SLABS, & CONCRETE
WALLS IN CASE IF THE RESULTS DID NOT SATISFY THE REQUIRED STRENGTH.
THE CONTRACTOR SHALL ACCEPT ANY SOLUTION DECIDED BY THE OWNER
ENGINEER.
HONEY COMBED SHALL BE REPAIR WITH SAND CEMENT GROUT AS PER
ENGINEER SUPERVISION.
