REBAR WORK

Land reclamation, also known as land fill (not to be confused with a landfill), is the process of creating new land from ocean, riverbeds, or lake beds. The land reclaimed is known as reclamation ground or land fill.

Land reclamation can be achieved with a number of different methods. The most simple method involves simply filling the area with large amounts of heavy rock and/or cement, then filling with clay and dirt until the desired height is reached. The process is called "infilling" and the material used to fill the space is generally called "infill". Draining of submerged wetlands is often used to reclaim land for agricultural use. Deep cement mixing is used typically in situations in which the material displaced by either dredging or draining may be contaminated and hence needs to be contained.

The reclamation of land from surrounding waters is used in Singapore to expand the city-state’s limited area of usable, natural land. Land reclamation is most simply done by adding material such as rocks, soil and cement to an area of water; alternatively submerged wetlands or similar biomes can be drained. In Singapore the former has been the most common method, with sand the predominant material used.

Land reclamation allows for increased development and urbanization. The use of land reclamation allows territories to expand outwards by recovering land from the sea. Land reclamation also allows for the preservation of local historic and cultural communities, as building pressures are reduced by the addition of reclaimed land.

Since the early 19th century, land reclamation has been used in Singapore extensively so in the last half-century in response to the city-state’s rapid economic growth. In 1960, Singapore was home to fewer than two million people. But to keep up with the increase in population (as well as a concurrent surge in the country’s economy and industrialization efforts), Singapore has increased its land mass by 22% since independence in 1965, with land continuously being set aside for future use. Though Singapore’s native population is no longer increasing as rapidly as it was in the mid-twentieth century, foreigners continue to flood into the city as the economy thrives, resulting in a continued investment in land reclamation by the government. The government thus plans to expand the city-state by an additional 7-8% by 2030.

CIVIL
ENGINEER

Civil Engineering is an engineering discipline that engages in the design, construction, and maintenance of the physical and naturally built environment which include works like roads, bridges, canals, dams, airports, sewerage systems, pipelines and railways. Civil engineering is traditionally broken into a number of sub-disciplines. It takes place in the public sector from municipal through to national governments, and in the private sector from individual homeowners through to international companies.

In general, civil engineering is concerned with the overall interface of fixed projects by humans for a greater and better environment. Civil engineers conceive, design, build, supervise, operate, construct and maintain infrastructure projects and systems in the public and private sector, including roads, buildings, airports, tunnels, dams, bridges, and systems for water supply and sewage treatment, electric and communications supply. Engineers in civil engineering apply the principles of geotechnical engineering, structural engineering, environmental engineering, transportation engineering and construction engineering to residential, commercial, industrial and public works projects of all sizes and levels of construction.

Concrete works or concrete construction work is closely associated with other parts of the construction industry, and with the many products that support it, normally for commercial purposes. The works covers internally and externally, including on the homes of customers and on building sites, in all weather conditions and on small and major projects.

Gone are the days where construction workers mixed cement and sand for concrete works. In modern society, developers current used precast concrete for the structure of the development.

Gone are the days where construction workers mixed cement and sand for concrete works. In modern society, developers current used precast concrete for the structure of the development. Precast concrete is a construction product produced by casting concrete in a reusable mold or "form" which is then cured in a controlled environment, transported to the construction site, lifted and placed into position. In contrast, traditional method poured standard concrete into site-specific forms and cured on site.

Precast (panels) are only used within ranges of exterior and interior walls. Compressed in concrete and stone, creating a solid but manoeuvrable wall or face. By producing precast concrete in a controlled environment (typically referred to as a precast plant), the precast concrete provides the opportunity to properly cure in a closely monitored environment. A precast concrete system offers many potential advantages over onsite casting. One notable point is, precast concrete production were performed on ground level, which helps with safety throughout a project. There is greater control over material quality and workmanship in a precast plant compared to a construction site. The forms used in a precast plant can be reused hundreds to thousands of times before they were replaced. Hence making it cheaper than onsite casting when looking at the cost per unit of formwork.

To complete the look of the four precast wall panel types — sandwich, plastered sandwich, inner layer and cladding panels; many different surface finishes are available. Standard cement is white or grey, though different colors can be added with pigments or paints. The color and size of aggregate can also affect the appearance and texture of concrete surfaces. The shape and surface of the precast concrete molds have an effect on the look: The mold can be made of timber, steel, plastic, rubber or fiberglass, resulting in a unique finish.

REBAR
WORK

Rebar works are part of the structure development of a construction project. Rebar is also known as reinforcing steel and reinforcement steel. It uses a steel bar or mesh of steel wires as a tension device in reinforced concrete. Hence giving strength to hold the concrete in compression. Though under compression, concrete is strong. But it has weak tensile strength. So with the enforcement of the rebar, it significantly increases the tensile strength of the structure.

All structural element needs rebar to carry the tension in the reinforced concrete; a footing needs rebar on the bottom, a simple beam or slab needs rebar on the bottom, etc. Rebar is also commonly used to help control concrete shrinkage. As concrete cures over time, it continues to shrink. Most of the shrinkage happens in the first few hours, then less shrinkage in the first few days. The shrinkage continues forever, but the amount of change becomes smaller and smaller.

In addition to the shrinkage due to curing, concrete will both expand or contract as a reaction to temperature changes (as do all materials, to some extent). Therefore, additional rebar is often used in a structural element and is also referred to as “Temperature Steel”. This rebar helps control concrete cracking due to shrinkage cracks from curing or from temperature changes. The reason the rebar's surface is often patterned, it is to create a better bond/grip with the concrete.
