8. Detailed Construction Sequence (Methodology)


8.1. Procedure
8.1.1

Handling for pipes:


During transportation pipes must be handled with care. Do not drop or drag pipes
especially on hard surfaces. Unloading of pipes to be carried out by care.
When mechanical lifting equipment is to be used, no metallic slings, hooks or chains
should use in direct contact with the pipe. Ropes or web slings are preferred, as
they will not damage the pipe wall.

8.1.2 Storage on site


Pipes should be stored on a flat dry level surface free from sharp projections, stones
or other objects likely to cause point loading or pipe deformation. Timber supports

spaced 1.5m apart along the pipe can be used to support the pipes. The width of
the stack should not exceed 3m.
Fittings will be stored in sheltered conditions in the boxes as supplied to protect
them from weathering and accidental damage.
8.1.3

Trench Formation
The trench shall be excavated by a Hand/Back hoe Loader, after the area of
excavation is identified, The formation of the trench must consist of stable, uniform
and smooth soil devoid of irregularities for direct laying of pipes, Compaction for the
full width of the pipe trench shall be to at least 95% Modified Proctor Density.
The excavated material shall be placed on one side of the trench leaving the other
side clear for pipe handling, and the bed of the trench should be smoothened out
evenly to provide a uniform support for the pipe.
While excavating 2 No. of labors should be present with the excavating machine to
avoid any damages that can occur while excavating to any of the underground
services.

8.1.4

Sequence of Installation
a. Mark routing of pipe work according to approved shop drawing.
b. Install piping as per approved shop drawing.
c. All horizontal drainage piping shall be installed with 2% slope unless otherwise

indicated.
d. Install fittings for changes in direction and branch connections with appropriate
branches, bends and long sweep bends
e. Use long turn double Y-branch and 1/8 bend fittings if two fixtures are installed
back to back or side by side with common drain pipe.
f. Do not change the direction of flow more than 90 degrees.
g. Use the proper size of standard increasers and reducers if pipes different sizes
are connected.
h. Reducing the size of drainage piping in direction of flow is prohibited.
i. Install encasement on underground piping according to ASTM A 674, AWWA
C105/ A 21.5 and ADSSC standards.
8.1.5

Raft Slab

a. After getting the all civil clearances (including foundation layout, levels, blinding,
water proofing & steel fixing), prepare the pipe length required as the approved
shop drawing for the laying through the steel fixture.
b. Make sure the pipe slope levels are as per the approved shop drawing otherwise as
indicated.
c. Pipe to be tied properly as maintaining slope according to approval.
Rev.0

d. Precede necessary steps of installation sequences with leak testing as explained in


technical specification.
e. Prior to the concrete filling make sure all the installation and testing are as per the
approvals.
8.1.6

Pipe works
Measure length of pipe required, making due allowance for any pipe fittings to be
used. Cut the pipe to the measured length. Ensure that the ends are cut square and
clean all burs.
The spigot and socket to be jointed should be carefully examined for any damage
which could impair the jointing procedure.
The spigot insertion depth should be measured as the depth from the mouth to the
shoulder of the socket.
The insertion depth should be marked on the spigot using marker.
The jointing system for drainage piping system is Solvent weld.
The mating areas of the spigot and the socket should be thoroughly cleaned using
the pipe cleaner and a clean rag.

8.1.6

Leak Testing
a. The piping system to be tested shall be closed by plugging and blanking all
openings in the system in an approved manner.
b. Suitable plugs are inserted at the lower end of the drain or sewer and at the head
of any connections.
c. A suitable bend together with a vertical length of pipe is fitted at the head of the
sewer or drain to provide the necessary test head. The system then filled with
water.
d. Close openings in piping system and fill with water to point of overflow but less
than 10-foot head of water (30 KPa) from before 15 minutes before starts to
completion of inspection. Water level must not drop and inspect joints for leak.
e. The sewer or drain under test should be left filled with water for min 2hours.
f.

So ensure that all piping and joints are no leak.

g. During the water test, precautions should be taken to prevent any movement of
the drain or sewer.
h. All ends shall be plugged after completion of test to protect from debris.
i.

After successful testing & Inspection of pipe work, covering of pipe work can
proceed as per approved drawing details.

j.

All piped pressure systems shall be hydraulically tested to at least 1.5 times the
operating pressure. Pressure shall be maintained for at least 24 hours.

5.6 Backfilling
I.

Embedded in concrete
a. Place the pipe in the containment with pipe support members
b. Maintain the slope properly (2%) or as shown on drawing

II.

Buried in soil
a. Backfilling shall take place immediately after the entire test has been approved by
the Engineers
b. Provide warning tapes or detectable warning tapes before final back filling.
c. The excavated material shall be used as backfilling material and backfilling
material shall be uniformly wetted with water. The backfilling shall be done in
layers that do not exceed 300mm of well compacted layer which the compaction
will be done by a plate compactor for the said layer each layer of backfilling shall
proceed after the Engineers approval for the compacted layer is given for the
previous layer

9. Construction Program
