How to design a stair for a exsisting site

It is a challenging thing that the actual site and drawings doesnt match.. so lets see the steps i follow in order to get a stair case right on spot to go to top floor.

first took the measurements of tge opening on the top floor.. length and width. Measured with a measuring tape on site ans drew on picture so that later when i go to office ill know what im doing.

too the slab thickness and floor height from top to top.. so that its easy to find no of steps required. 

Than took a pic from below floor so that i can visualize when i go back to office.

above is the desing whihc came best for the place, did some autocad drawing and this whats it looks like, than next is fabrication time at workshop

by using 100x50mm square hollow section made the main frame and steps with 50x50mm angle pcs.. step is 50mm thick solid wood.

 installed.. looks good   now its time to screw the wood steps and your all set to go uptge stairs.

time to deisng mezaarine to ground level as well

First we took a bench mark of 1m from the out side finishing level.. than marked it on the wall below the mezzanine floor. From that didba scale design.

fabricated it in our workshop.

Design of On Street Parking Facilities

On-street parking facilities may be designed with the parking bays parallel to the curb or
inclined to the curb Figure below shows the angles of inclination commonly used for
curb parking and the associated dimensions for automobile parking, It can be seen that
the number of parking bays that can be fitted along a given iength of curb increases as the
angle of inclination increases up to 90 degree The higher the inclination angle, s however, the
greater the encroachment of the parking bays on the traveling pavement of the highway
Parking bays inclined at angles to the curb severely interfere with the movement of traffic
on the highway, with the result that crash rates tend to be higher on sections of roads with
angle parking than on those with parallel parking It should be noted that the dimensions
given in Figure below are for automobiles When parking bays are to be provided for trucks
and other types of vehicles, the dimensions should be determined on the basis of the
dimensions of the specific vehicle being considered.

flat roof construction and waterproofing

on a roof with a standing wall, its best to have a capping beams or a coping with concrete which can help direct water flow.. a capping with a 50mm edge out side the wall.

for a concrete roof skirting must be done atlease 100mm high.. liquid bitumen is one the best water proofing matrial that is been used.
As below.. many layers of material is best specially for a wooden roof but if its a concrete slab its not that nessary for this must of roofing felt or bitunen layers since concrete it self is water proof.

Even if its a concrete or wood, even though its a flat rood it need atleast 3% slope .. if not as below there are high chances of water leaking.

list of recent Tallest buildings

Still the world tallest building is in dubai UAE burj khalifa standing 828 meter., next Shanghai China Shanghai tower, mecca saudi arabia with mekka clock tower standing 601 meter.

Mostly European haven't made much progress in climbing the world tall towers.. kinda disappointing with what they claims.
