Photos Of The Steel Reinforcement For The Ground Floor Ring Beams

These pictures taken on 22 January 2011 showing the rapid progress of building our retirement house in Pakchong, Thailand.

They show the steel reinforecement for the ring beams running around the perimeter of the ground floor slab and forming the foundations for the slab.

Note that this ring beam only supports the ground floor slab. The foundations for the second floor are 1.5 to 2 m below ground floor level. The columns (or posts as they call them in Thailand) are founded on the footings at -1.5 m to 2 m below ground floor level.

Before the concrete is poured, the steel rebar has to be encased in formwork. Traditionally the Thais use wooden formwork. In this build the builder will use steel re-usable formwork. This is quicker and more accurate that wooden formwork.
