Method Statement for Civil Works:

1. Layout
Refer to the final layout drawing prepared with reference to the
actual demarcation, set back adjustments, final levels and other
development works
Check if the site is cleaned and leveled properly by cutting or
Start the layout with the help of Total Station or any other
survey instrument as given in the specification
Mark the road widening line with respect to the actual boundary
wall after proper measurement
Mark the set back distance from this line and clear margin
distance on any other side with respect to the boundary wall
Locate another point at the distance of setback distance on the
other end of the plot along the road
Set the instrument at the first point and bisect this point, this is
the tentative setback line
Now check the distance between the setback line and road
widening line it should always be less than the original setback
distance, if not shift the line inwards till you get the shortest
Now turn the instrument @ 90 to this setback line and mark a
point on the other boundary line
Now check the distance of this line from the left side boundary
wall, this should not be less than the margin distance
If required shift this line to get the minimum side margin
Now these two lines are the final boundary lines at right angles
to each other
Mark the points on these lines at the distance equal to the width
of the buildings
Shift the instrument to these points and get the other corners of
the building
Measure the required distances as per the layout plan and
locate the actual corners of the buildings at site
Cross check the distances and diagonals of the buildings
Check the minimum side margin distances with respect to the
other side of the boundaries

corners from either side of given size and height above G.L

Finish the top of the pillars smoothly with plastering and

painting it white with red markings which can be used for
individual building layout

first batch and alterations, if any should be made in the mix
proportion as per the ingredients available
Care should be taken to first cast the beams and compact layerwise with the help of the vibrator. Though vibrator is applied to
beams, concrete should be also compacted manually with the help
of tamping rods
For the initial batch, the slump test should be carried out to find
out the consistency and workability of the concrete mix. The
alterations in the proportion of ingredients should be made, if the
mix is not consistent and workable.

wet gunny bags, to prevent drying of the top surface of the
Incase of rains, cover the slab with big plastic/turpentine sheet
to protect it
16. Wall Masonry 200/ 230 mm thick

Ref. Drawing no.

Bricks to be used as per the specification and sample should be

approved prior to using it.
All bricks to be used should be thoroughly soaked in water for at
least 2 hours, so that they do not absorb the water from the mortar.
Bricks should always be laid with their frogs facing upwards
Spread the mortar over an area to be covered by the edges of
the wall. The depth of spread mortar may be about 15mm.
First construct the corner of the wall. Lay one brick at the
corner and then press with hand, so that thickness of the bed-joint
remains only about 10mm. The first closer is also fixed as the
corner brick. Then clean the excess mortar from the joints.
Check the level and the alignment. Similarly check placements
of edges of the bricks.
Then lay down few headers and stretchers in 1st course,
adopting the same method. The level and alignment of these should
be properly checked.
After laying the first course at the corner, lay the mortar and
spread over the first course and arrange the bricks to get a proper
bonding level and check alignment of these bricks
Similarly, lay down the corner at the other end of the wall. The
corner construction, at the each end, works as guide for filling
between bricks of various courses. The corner construction should
be done with great care. Check the plumb and alignment
Stretch a line dori along the top of the first course laid at each
corner of the wall. The course is then raised. The procedure is
repeated to second, third & other courses until the wall is
constructed till the required height.
Keep the frog of brick on top to ensure that it will be completely
filled with mortar.
The joints should be raked smooth and cleaned and finished
after work everyday
All courses should be laid truly horizontal and vertical
