I'm planning to construct a new house. For which, I have few questions regarding Tie Beam (Concrete column used to connect columns in foundation).
What should be the height/location of Tie beam... at plinth level ?? (and if its at plinth level then what should be underneath of tie beam to support it.. Soil/ Bricks and whether Brick work & DPC is required in this case for dampness prevention) or below ground level ?? (and if its below ground level then whether Brick work & DPC is required. If not, than how dampness will be prevented).
