Raw Material Area- Should be laid where there is enough space for unloading and stacking of raw materials distance and displacement wise nearest to the center of gravity of the proposed construction.

Mortar Platform- Should be laid at ¾th the distance between raw material area and the center of gravity of the proposed construction in temporary brickwork 1:8.

Documents- A copy of the building plan, sanction letter and working drawings, site order book, bill folder packet, pen, pencil, sharpener, eraser, stapler, staples, tape and 3′ plastic laminate roll, should always be present on the site carefully stored with the caretaker.

Materials Required- Bricks (1500-3000) could be easily retrieved later. 1 iron door set with a lock & 3 keys (or 2 door sets if chowkidar’s chamber is separate) worth Rs 700-800 and 4-8 steel chadders/angles/bolts. Pipes (Including flexible), tap, nipple and motor tanker, if water supply is low.
