How to measure Reinforcement with column & footing

This construction video provides step-by-step guidelines on estimation of Reinforcement with column and footing as per construction drawing. The video will be very useful for foundation design.

Reinforcement is essential for reinforced concrete members like footings, beams, columns, slabs, lintels etc. It is recommended to estimate reinforcement quantity before tendering phase for measuring cost of project or construction work roughly.

If working drawings and schedules for the reinforcement are unavailable, then it is required to create an estimate of the projected quantities. The quantities are usually defined according to the requirements of the Standard method of measurement of building works.
