Construction 9.0 9.1 Layout marking or setting out

Document No : RTS/QAQC/OO1 Revision No : 02 Date : 18TH MARCH 2010 Page No :5/9

A team of surveyors and his gang allocated specifically for layout marking are given an orientation about the site requirement by Site Engineer. This team will carry out layout marking as per approved drawing in concurrence with the schedule of work. The layout would be marked with chalk line on the floor. These lines will get transferred to the slab with the help of Laser/plumb to maintain the verticality of Partition. Once the setting out is completed the end points will be marked with permanent markers. The type of partition as per wall key will be marked alongside the marking, for easy reference. The level and line for setting out would be taken from the authenticated bench mark and grid lines given by the Main Contractor at site. The layout will be cross-checked by Site Supervisor before proceeding with installation. 9.2 Frame work for partitions and lining Top tracks will be fixed onto the soffit as per the particular wall type. The tracks will be fixed securely with wall plug & self taping screws, at a maximum spacing of 600mm centre in staggered manner. The floor tracks will also be fixed in the same manner with same hardware. The studs will be installed as per approved shop drawing between the top and bottom tracks. The frame work will be inspected by ROCHANA TECHNICAL SERVICES supervisor and Site Engineer against shop drawing details and discrepancy, if any will be rectified prior to proceeding further. Frame work for ceilings All hangers are fixed to the soffit of slab with the help of anchor nails at a maximum spacing of 1200 mm centre to centre. After hangers are fixed then the wall angles are fixed to the walls at the perimeter of ceiling area.Then the main channels are fixed to these hangers also at a maximu spacing of 1200 mm centre to centre with the help of channel screws. After fixing main channels then the furring channels (Hat Sections) are fixed to the bottom of main channels in perpendicular direction at a maximum spacing of 600 mm centre to centre with the help of channel screws. The frame work will be inspected by ROCHANA TECHNICAL SERVICES supervisor and Site Engineer against shop drawing details and discrepancy, if any will be rectified prior to proceeding further.

9.3

Boarding for partitions After the inspection of frame work by ROCHANA TECHNICAL SERVICES Site Engineer, one side boarding will be done. Boards will be installed along the stud direction with plaster board screws at 3000mm C/C distance in the middle and 200 mm c/c at ends. The screw heads will be driven 2-3mm from the external face to allow for the filling of screw heads. After frame work and one side boarding is done , an inspection request (IR) will be raised to get frame work approval & MEP clearance . The other side boarding will be commenced only Upon receipt of written approval for framework & MEP Clearance. Boarding for ceilings After receiving approval from contractor/consultant for framing and the clearance from MEP contractor to board then the boarding will be done. Boards will be installed with plaster board screws at 300mm C/C distance in the middle and 200 mm c/c at ends. The screw heads will be driven 2-3mm from the external face to allow for the filling of screw heads.

9.4 Insulation:-

Document No : RTS/QAQC/OO1 Revision No : 02 Date : 18TH MARCH 2010 Page No :6/9

The approved insulation material will be inserted inside the partition as per the wall key reference. Adhesive/pin will be used to hold the insulation from slipping off from its position. 9.5 Door / Window openings: For doors and window openings, as per the approved drawing and door opening schedule, frame work would be done as shown in the shop drawing details. Particular attention would be given for squareness of openings. 10.0 9.6 Taping & Jointing: The following coat will be applied over the board joints: a) b) c) First coat/jointing coat Second coat Third coat

First coat is the initial jointing process where the joint tape is fixed over the thin jointing compound applied over the joints. Another layer of jointing compound application would be done over the tape. This would be approximately 100mm wide. Screw heads also will be covered by the application of the joint compound. Second and third coats will be applied successively after having dried each previous coats, feathered 50mm beyond the limits of previous coats. This would be sanded smooth , after drying to receive decoration. Cleaning & Handing Over When all the activities are completed, the area will be thoroughly cleaned. The area will then inspected by ROCHANA TECHNICAL SERVICES Site Engineer. An inspection request will be raised (IR) to facilitate Main Contractors & Consultants inspection.
