At Bharathi Cement, we are obsessed with quality. Our cement is tested at every stage, from the first to last. Using the world renowned Narzi limestone we produce cement that has higher strength, low manganese and low alkalies.
Today, we bring the same expertise and commitment to quality, as we offer you the following suggestions to make a beautiful home.
Land: A square or a rectangular plot is ideal for construction.
Cement: Use strong and superior quality Bharathi Cement.
Water: Only use clean, pure water. Saline water not just weakens the cement but causes the iron used for construction to rust.
Iron: Use BIS approved iron.
Aggregate: For the columns, beams, foundation and slab use stone with 20mm thickness.
Sand: It is best if you use clean, dirt-free sand.
Foundation: Keep in mind the nature of the land and soil where you’re building your house.
Plinth level: The height of the current road level and any future changes to this level will help determine the optimum plinth level.
Requirement of cement, water, dry aggregate (both coarse and fine) for different grades of concrete (Nominal Mix) work are given as under
*Total quantity= Sum of the individual masses of fine and coarse aggregates, kg
Proportion of fine aggregate to coarse aggregate (by mass) : Generally 1:2 but subject to an upper limit of 1:1.5 and a lower limit of 1:2.5
Note: The proportion of fine aggregate to coarse aggregate should be adjusted from upper limit to lower limit progressively as the grading of fine aggregate becomes finer and the maximum size of the coarse aggregate becomes larger. Graded coarse aggregate shall be used.
Example: For an average grading of fine aggregate (That is Zone II of Table 4 of IS 383) the proportions shall be 1:1.5, 1:2, 1:2.5 for maximum size of aggregates 10mm, 20mm and 40mm respectively
