  3. 3. 1. Objective The objectives of the site trip of this project are: - - - To have a better understanding of the basics of the construction process. To gain more knowledge about the practical aspect of the construction techniques in comparison to the theory aspect in books and its application on the site. To have an experiment to actual working environment on site including uncertainty circumstances in weather condition. To have the ability to communicate with the construction team members on site and to see the importance of teamwork in the building team. To have witness the usage of construction equipment on site including mechanical plants. Able to explore and identify various types of building materials and technology on site. To aware about the importance of safety on site and understanding of safety problems and site conditions. Able to recognize the items measurable for sub-structure and reinforced concrete frame works. To study a systematic approach to take-off quantities from drawings for the preparation of Bills Quantities for substructure and reinforced concrete frame works. To demonstrate a systematic and orderly mind and be able to visualize the drawings and details given for substructure and reinforced concrete frame works. 3
  4. 4. 2. Introduction The site visit is held on the Friday of 29th of November 2013 which is organized by Ms. AngFuey Lin. This project is to build 75 terrace houses which build in 3 types which is type A (37 units), B (84 units) and C (4 units) and is about 3 storey high Mozart garden terrace houseconstruction sites which located in Symphony Hills, Cyberjaya. Based on the project information board outside of the construction site, the owner of this project is CyberviewSdn. Bhd. The architect of this project is SA Architects Sdn. Bhd. Besides that, the landscape architect is Punt Garden Sdn. Bhd. The civil, structure and mechanical engineer is PerundingBudimanSdn. Bhd. The contractor is IntaBinaSdn Bhd. The foundation of this three storey house is built in grade 30 reinforced concrete pad footing with manhole for sewage purpose. The size of the pad foundation is 5m long x 3m wide x 1m high. The lean concrete below pad foundation is 50mm. 4
  5. 5. 3. Technical Observation On the 29st of November, Ms. Ang Fuey Lin arranged us to the construction site trip. This site trip is very interesting which is about a 3 storey garden terrace house which I never been there before although I visited a few of construction site. There are 3 types of Mozart garden terrace house. We visit type B which is the most units among the 3 types of the garden terrace and is the smallest of all which is 3,224 square feet. There are approximate 40-50 students going to the site trip. Around 9.30am, Mr. Umar Sabtu (The project manager) and Mr.Zul (The engineer) brief us about the site and safety precaution of site before entering the site. Along the way, base plate, scaffolding and supporter of scaffolding can be seen. There are also some scaffolding found besides the building to support the building and formwork of beam which may not cause leakage of concrete and changes in shape. Apart from that, they explain that this garden terrace consists of the combination of pad and raft foundation. According to them, raft foundation to save cost as pad foundations are more costly. There are cube like concrete blocks located under the reinforcement bars to acts as concrete cover or spacer. This would give space for the reinforcement bars in contact with the concrete which would prevent the rusting of reinforcement bars. There are some red wires found to protect the electrical cables. After that, we saw various diameter of high tensile reinforcement bar on the ground near the bar bending machine. There are a few workers bend the reinforcement bar from the machine. The worker first measure the reinforcement bars and then bend easily using the bar bending machine. Some of the workers are tying the links on the reinforcement bars on the ground floor slab. Besides that, we saw lifter crane which ease the worker in carry things to higher floor. We also saw the concrete mixer machine which is use to mix cement, fine aggregates, course aggregates and water depends on their ratio. We saw formwork located besides the building and to the sides of the soffit. Concrete bricks and clay bricks are used for brickwork for wall. Lastly, some temporary works which are toilets are located in the construction site for better hygiene purposes for workers. 5

  17. 17. 5. Conclusion After visiting the site, I truly understand the situation of site visit including the scorching of sun and the dust in the site. It is much tougher than what I thought compared to the life of studying in the university. I have seen many things in the site which normally taught by lecturer in lecture classes. Besides, I have gain experience in staying patiently under the hot weather which I never learn in class. Sometimes in lecture class only learn new knowledge without knowing how the structure looks like. Apart from that, I also gained lots of knowledge about the basic of construction process, way of using machinery equipment and can easily differentiate the types of buildings materials used in the construction site. I would also learn in looking at the construction and the design used to build a garden terrace house. This would give me better understanding about the modern design constructed. Lastly, I really think that this site visits benefits a lot on subject and for my future which prepare me to overcome many upcoming problems throughout the course. This would also provide more practical knowledge which would give me better preparation for the future as a successful quantity surveyor. 17
