Strong as Bull Technical Drawings for the Reinforced Concrete Structure

Kevin sent along the technical drawings for the pilings, foundation, and framework of the house. Some of it is Greek to me, but it’s reassuring about the strength of the construction.

I can see that the construction is solid. The supporting columns seem to be 30cm x 30cm (12 in x 12 in). There are sixteen of these, even for this 205mt2 (2200 ft2 house. Plus, the beams supporting the floors are 55cm x 30cm (22 in x 12 in) with the floors 25cm (10 in) thick.

Here’s a look at the structural drawing for the ground floor. Trave is a beam and soliao a floor panel.
