Construction of 1st Floor of Existing Building


In the realm of construction projects, the successful completion of a job often reflects not only the dedication of those involved but also the quality of workmanship employed.

Successful Construction of the First Floor: A Testament to Quality Craftsmanship

In this article, we delve into the details of this remarkable undertaking, highlighting the meticulous planning and execution that allowed this project to be accomplished within a mere 45 days.

The Superstructure and Finishing Touches

The superstructure was meticulously crafted using country-burnt bricks in cm 1:6, both on the ground and first floors. To enhance the aesthetics and protect the structure, walls were elegantly plastered with cm 1:4, 15 cm thick layers on both the inside and outside.

One of the standout features of this project was the construction of the RCC stairs, utilizing a blend of RCC 1:2:4 and 20 mm broken stone. The attention to detail extended to the staircase’s stainless steel handrails, which were not only functional but also polished to perfection.

Flooring was no less important. Granite slabs measuring 20 mm thick were laid on a foundation of cm 1:5 PCC, which was 10 cm thick and featured 40 mm broken stones. The staircase itself was adorned with vitrified tiles, 15 mm thick, and cement slurry, while skirting was applied using vitrified tiles, reaching a height of 10 cm.

The Art of Finishing

The interior walls were given meticulous attention. They received two coats of interior emulsion over a coat of interior primer, further complemented by two coats of wall putty. The exterior walls were not forgotten, receiving their own touch of finesse with two coats of exterior emulsion over a coat of exterior primer.

The Compound Wall and Final Flourish

The perimeter of the property was enclosed by a compound wall, constructed using PCC blocks in cm 1:5. This was then elegantly plastered with cm 1:4, 15 mm thick layers. Adding both strength and a touch of architectural flair, an inverted arch was thoughtfully placed between the pillars. To ensure a polished finish, the compound wall was painted with two coats of exterior emulsion over a coat of exterior primer.
