BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE WORKS

Backfill base of wall.
Prefabricate shutters and reinforcement.
Fix reinforcement.
Erect scaffold.
Fix formwork including bolts.
Pour concrete.
Strip formwork.
This is a rolling sequence.

METHOD OF HOW THE WORKS IS TO BE CARRIED OUT.

Backfill base of wall

This will be carried out as method statement No. 005 Backfilling to Retaining Wall
bases and Pads.

Prefabricate shutters and reinforcement.

The Assembly and striking of the panel formwork will be as the SGB formwork
Method Statement dated May 2000. All works to be in accordance with SGB Drg. A-
FM-7396-02B. The formwork will be erected in sections on the ground prior to
erection. The reinforcement will be pre-assembled on the ground in section ready to
be lifted in.

Fix reinforcement.

The pre-assembled reinforcement will be lifted into position with the crane prior to the
wall shutters being erected and tied to the starter bars. Scaffold will be pre erected
and lifted into position to aid the fixers at high level. A scaffold will be erected at the
positions of the bolts to enable the steelfixers to cut and fix the steel.

Erect scaffold.

Scaffold will be pre erected and lifted into position to aid the fixers at high level. A
scaffold will be erected at the positions of the bolts to enable the steelfixers to cut
and fix the steel. The scaffold will be a ridged board and tube scaffold, which will be
moved by the crane as work progresses.

TASK: Erection and pouring of concrete to retaining walls

LOCATION: All buildings

DURATION:


Fix formwork including bolts.

Once one side of the formwork is assembled it will be lifted into position with the
crane and propped. The shutters will be fixed in position as SGB permanent props
and drawing. The shutters will be lifted using the lifting clamps supplied by SGB.
Once this has been done the clamps will be released manually. Ladders will be used
for short duration activity only to release the clamps. Once the steel is complete and
passed the second shutter will be lifted into position with the crane. Once in position
the formwork will propped and tied with through tie equipment and soldiers. The
working platform will be fixed to the shutter prior to erection. Access to the working
platform will be by ladder securely fixed to the platform. The formwork will be aligned
with suitable adjustable props. Stop end will be fixed in position and strutted.

Pour concrete.

The concrete will be poured from the mixer into a skip. The crane will lift the skip with
the concrete over the shutters. The concrete will be released into the shutters at an
even pace as the pour rate calculation on the SGB Drawing. The concrete will be
vibrated as work proceeds. Once the concrete has reached the top of the shutter the
exposed surface will be trowel and covered for protection.

Strip formwork.

Striking will take place when the concrete is suitably cured. The shutters will then be
lifted and moved into the next position as above.

This is a rolling sequence.

LABOUR:

1 No. Supervisor
3 No. Joiners will be used for the erection of the shutters and pouring of the concrete.
2 No. Steelfixers will be used to pre-assemble the wall steel and tie in position.
1 No. Crane operator to operate the crane
1 No. Signaller to bank the crane.

CONTROL:

The work must be supervised. The foreman will be the person responsible for the
supervision of the operations. The works will be carried out by experienced
operatives who will be supervised during the whole of the works. Only experienced-
trained operatives will operate the plant and equipment. Statutory examinations will
be carried out on all plant, equipment with records kept. Only authorised-trained
operatives will be permitted to drive any plant vehicles and mount abrasive wheels on
company machines. The scaffolding will be erected by a competent scaffolder and
checked and signed off prior to use or after it has been moved. All backfilling to
adjacent bases are to be completed prior to fixing of reinforcement and wall shutters,
to provide a clear working platform. All protruding reinforcement to be protected with
proprietary caps or boards to prevent injury as work proceeds. The workplace to be
kept free from tripping hazards and this will include de-nailing timbers as work
proceeds. The ladder is to be footed and used at the correct angle of repose.

GENERAL:

Addendum to Method Statement

Erect scaffold.

Once the steelfixers have completed the scaffold will be removed completely and the
shutters will be erected. A scaffold will be erected on the shuttering to BOTH SIDES
of the shutters to enable the operatives concreting to work both sides of the shutter.
Once the concrete has been poured the scaffold will be removed and the shutter
stripped.

Pour concrete.

Method by Concrete Skip and Crane

The concrete will be poured from the mixer into a skip. The crane will lift the skip with
the concrete over the shutters. The concrete will be released into the shutters at an
even pace as the pour rate calculation on the SGB Drawing. The concrete will be
vibrated as work proceeds. Once the concrete has reached the top of the shutter the
exposed surface will be trowel and covered for protection.

Method by Concrete Pump.

The concrete will be poured from the mixer directly into the back of the concrete
pump. The concrete will be pumped through the pump directly into the shutter at an
even pace as the pour rate calculation on the SGB drawing. The concrete will be
vibrated as work proceeds. Once the concrete has reached the top of the shutter the
exposed surface will be trowel and covered for protection.
