Topic: beam sizes

Sir,

We have given contract for construction of our house and with regard to the same the ground floor slab is over. While calculating the actual sizes we have taken the beam sizes as 12" inches Height and 9" inches width which are visible. Where as the contractor is taking the sizes as 18" inches height and 9" inches width and he is calculating measurements in cubic feet. The difference of 6" inches in height is being calculated which is gone into slab. Our question is when he has charged for the slab as per sq ft, how can he charge the 6" inches of beam both in slab cost & beam cost. Kindly clarify our doubt.

Regards,

Rupesh Kanjani

 Thu Nov 20, 2014 Post  #1 S L Gupta (Civil Engg)Join date: Mar 2008 Dear Rupesh          You have not given the agreement items but as I under stand from your query that you have have problem in roof slab payment and beam payment. If contract is through rate i.e. labor and material than he claim slab payment in sft and wanted extra payment  of beam portion in slab. In my view he can claim extra steel of beam in slab but not for concrete and labor etc. If his agreement is on labor base than he can claim steel bending binding labor.
 Fri Nov 21, 2014 Post  #2 rupeshJoin date: Aug 2012 Post subject: beam sizesSir,Thanks for your reply, as our agreement with the contractor is for total construction and the rate for the Beam is Rs.200.00 per cubic feet and rate for the slab is Rs.200.00 per sq ft.Our dispute with him is that he has charged the slab cost as per sq feet which is ok but he is charging for the 6 inches beam which has gone into the slab,for example the visible beam size is 0.75 x12 inches where as he charging for 0.75x18inches.So please clarify whether we should pay him as per his quote or pay only for the steel used.Regards,kanjani rupesh
 Sat Nov 22, 2014 Post  #3 ringwangJoin date: Jan 2013 Dear Rupesh,you should follow Mr. Gupta advice. here in my site they are doing labor contract they claim but i did not consider that 6"in beam. we calculate only beam visible area. If material contract you should pay extra payment for the 6" beam steel cost.

 Sat Nov 29, 2014 Post  #5 S L Gupta (Civil Engg)Join date: Mar 2008 Dear Rupesh       It is not possible at this stage to calculate the actual used steel. Tentatively if your beam is 9'' wide, 5'' in slab and let suppose  20' length than contents are= 20x .75x.42=6.3 cft x 3kg per cft=18.9 kg. More over you can take idea from black smith i.e. bar binder who will tell you about bars placed in beam. In general at top 2nos bars are laid to secure rings of beam which cant be more than 18.9 kg.
