1.2. Equipment:
Masonry tools

Sand sieves,
Note: the above estimation is given indicatively only.
1.3 Materials
The size of solid blocks shall be as specified in the item of work/drawings. The maximum variation
allowed in dimensions shall be as below:
TECHNICAL & ITEM SPECIFICATION
The blocks shall be 300 mm X 200 mm X 200 mm for external walls, 400 mm X 200 mm X
150 mm, and 400 mm X 200 mm X 100 mm for internal walls and shall not be more than +/1.5 mm in ht. and breadth and +/- 3 mm in length.
Mortar shall be in proportion of 1:6 ratios of cement and screened sand.
200mm, 150mm, 100mm thick solid concrete blocks in walls and architectural features at all
levels shall be of approved block strength .i.e. (40 kg/sq.cm).
Sand River sand, Robo-Silica as approved.
2.0. LOGISTICS
For all buildings, mechanical winches shall be provided at such a location that is easily accessible to
the load vehicles of C.C.masonry blocks and to manual loading of C.C.blocks, cement bags and sand
etc. in to winch bucket by labourers.
Depending upon the villas accessibility, either load vehicle of C.C.blocks shall be kept at winch and
all the blocks shall be transferred to required levels or if vehicle access is not available up to winch
location, the total load of C.C. blocks shall be unloaded at a convenient point and the same can be
transferred to the top levels using manual labour and winch. For each villa separate schematic
logistic plan shall be prepared before starting the block work in that villa and that logistic plan after
due approval from client/PMC, shall be considered as part of this method statement.
Storage of materials

All the solid blocks shall be stacked near by the working area, but not in working area.

In no case any material shall be stacked at winch.

All the blocks shall be stacked up to a maximum height of 1.2m only.

Blocks shall be stacked in such a manner that most of the load will be on beams.

Cement bags shall be stacked on an elevated platform.

Sand shall be stacked in Empty gunny bags in a neat manner arresting the spillage by
bunding around sand storage area.
3.0. METHOD OF WORKS
3.1 Pre-block work
The blocks shall be semi wet before starting the masonry work.
The floor shall be cleaned properly and all unwanted and loose materials shall be removed.

Check the face of the blocks for plumb with respect to the face of the beam at the upper floor.
Check the dimensions and diagonals of the room.
Check for all the materials and tools are in place.
Necessary tools comprising of wooden straight edge, masons spirit level, square, foot rule,
plumb bob, grooving tools and pins etc shall be available to the masons to ensure that the
walls are taken up true to plumb line and levels.
DPC to be laid before Block work.

3.2 During Block work


After pre-block work checking start the fallowing
Mark the level for reference on the column.
Lay one course of block over the bedding mortar. Check the dimensions of the room along
with the right angles. (Do not fill the joints till approval).
The joints should not be more than 12 mm thick (Screen sand if required).
Place plastering bull (level tippy) marks on the sides of block masonry.
Proceed further after getting the approval for one course.
Blocks of successive course should be laid in such a manner blocks at the end or near
columns, so that the vertical joints are staggered and the joints in alternate courses shall
come directly over the other.
All courses shall be laid truly horizontal and vertical joints truly vertical. Each block shall be
set with bedding joints and vertical joints filled thoroughly.
Thickness of the block courses shall be kept uniform. The wall shall be taken up truly plumb.
Plumb bob to be checked at every course.
All the connecting block masonry work shall be carried out to one level and no portion of work
shall be raised more than 1.0m above the rest of work. Any dislodged block shall be removed
and reset in fresh mortar.
The construction of walls may be started either at the corners first, or started from one end
and proceeding in the other direction.
If the corners of the walls are built first, they shall be built four or five courses higher than the
centre of the walls so as to ensure truly straight and vertical walls.
Handling or gripping the block shall be such as to position the block properly with minimum
adjustment. Mortar shall not be spread too far ahead of actual laying of the block that it tends
to stiffen and lose its plasticity.
RCC band of 100mm x 100mm of 1:2:4 concrete mix with 8mm dia (2nos.) bars shall be
provided for 100mm thick masonry wall at every 1.0m height. Also at the window sill level.
The block work shall be continued over it next day.
CC beds to be provided at lintel beam resting places.
The gap between the top most courses and the RCC beam soffit shall be filled with mortar and
metal should be pressed into it so that it becomes compact.
Teething to be provided to accommodate at the perpendicular wall junction wherever
applicable.
3.3 Block work Jointing
Mortar shall be spread over the entire top surface of the block including front and rear to a
uniform layer of 12mm thickness.
The vertical joints shall be broken and shall be in line for alternate courses.
The thickness of the both horizontal and vertical joints shall be not more than 12mm. All joints
shall be racked to a minimum depth of 12mm by racking tool while the mortar is still green, so
as to provide proper key to plaster.
The face of concrete block masonry shall be kept cleaned and all mortar droppings removed
promptly.
The thickness of the courses shall be uniform with courses horizontal. All connected work shall
be carried out at nearly one level and no portion of the work shall be left more than one
course lower than the adjacent work.
