Topic: Foundation

Hello,

Happy new year to you!

Sir, My foundation is complete now. We had put 2 steel bars of 12mm at DPC level. My dpc level is 1' 6" from road level and 2' feet from inside entry. Now, for some reasons we want to increase 6 inches level from both inside and outside. What to do? DPC is not put yet. Just inserted two steel bars at DPC level and covered with concrete

Any advice will be appreciated

Thanx
 Pooja
