VERIFIED EXCEL SHEET FOR BAR BENDING SCHEDULE (BBS) FOR FOOTING & COLUMN

“Feel the structure” MSA

This blog is for all all structural engineers who generally need to estimate quantity of reinforcement to justify whether design is economical or not.It will also help quantity surveyor(QS Engineer)

I am very much delighted to share you an excel sheet for bar bending schedule(BBS) which is a very helpful and handy tools for any structural engineer to evaluate whether design of structural members are under the limit of industry norms as far as wight of reinforcement in terms of Kg/sqft or Kg/m3.

In order to convinced client, we as a structural engineer need to furnish BBS so that client may agree with our design. In this excel sheet of BBS, i have shown an example for calculation for footing & column.I will upload BBS for slab and beams in my next blog.

Although BBS is done by Quantity Surveyor(QS) but we should also know it so that we can check BBS made by QS Engineer.

Thanks

VERIFIED EXCEL SHEET FOR ESTIMATION OF CIVIL ITEMS UPTO PLINTH LEVEL

This blog is for all all structural engineers who generally need to estimate civil items particularly volume of RCC which further helps to find out reinforcement/m^3 and it helps designer to calculate reinforcement quantity based on certain thumb rule like quantity of reinforcement(in Kg)/m^3 & check whether design is economical or not.It will also help quantity surveyor(QS Engineer)

Here, i am uploading excel sheet for the calculation of civil items upto plinth beams. In this attached sheet, you need to put data in yellow highlighted area , automatically, earhwork,RCC, PCC and shuttering will come in the same sheet.

Download Excel Sheet for the estimation of civil items upto plinth level.

This is my first excel sheet for the estimation of civil items except reinforcement. Later on i would upload civil items estimation for a whole building with an example with working drawing.Also, will upload excel sheet for BBS(Bar Bending Schedule). In my later blogs, you will find some thumb rule to evaluate tentative quantity for estimation of reinforcement with the help of concrete quantity. It will help you to check whether your design is under present industry limits of using reinforcement in on the basis of built-up area in square feet or in meter or concrete volume. It will help you evaluate the cost of the building.

It is my suggestion to all structural engineers. You need to know BBS and estimation RCC and certain industry thumb rules as it will help you in cost optimization of building.
