Reduced посетить страницу RL : this is the height or elevation above the point adopted as the site datum for men purpose of establishing levels. Hi Snowing, Thanks for the interest. We work what does rl mean on building plans out by taking The heights where these ‘levels’ are located are referred to as the Reduced Level or R. Below is a buildjng through the site on the site boundary. Building Standards; Getting It Right!

Object mounted over – an object mounted over the area shown. Object sittting above the plane of the depicted section – a surface mounted object sitting higher than the plane of the diagram.

What’s the difference between an architect and a building designer? How to choose an architect How to consult with an architect or building designer. Floor level note: the floor level is provided as a figure relative to a datum, or universal reference point. Job datum level – indicates the altitude at a specific point, relative to a universal reference point known as a ‘ datum ‘. We work that out by taking So the basic maths is L of Below is a section through the site on the site boundary.

I have drawn an imaginary horizontal line from the R. I find this the easiest way to set a reference line for offsetting the heights of the other R.

Only the entry where the RL of 41m is notated? Or all of the slab, which would mean your slab would be on a slope!! The slab isn’t 0. The builder will probably level the site by cutting the higher parts and filling the lower, so the level slab will be about mm above the altered ground level. Hi Bashworth, That makes sense, except the site was not levelled and the slab is different heights.

But I suppose what you are saying is that at each point the slab should be. The garage has an RL on the plans of But if the land slopes mm from North to South and the garage is at the lowest point, then the land the garage sits on would have to have been built up.

So, in fact, your plans don’t tell you the height of your slab from ground level. I am glad you are asking and educating yourself so this probably doesn’t apply to you but please people learn from our ongoing very harrowing experience of our builder pouring our slab too high, please understand what height it should be and if at any stage you are not sure it is being constructed at the correct height make noise until someone listens to you council, builder before the slab is poured and don’t let them blow you off like I did!

Get an independent survey done if you have too. Hi Building Expert, Yes, you’re right – according to the Building Regulations, the slab is not the required level above ground nor is there adequate drainage.

I was just wondering whether there was some absolute way to work out, from your plans, the exact height of your individual slab and I’m also trying to understand why the builder claimed the designer-supplied “levels” were not right. Also why we arrived at a situation where the house couldn’t be built as per the surveyor-approved building plans because of height problems with the boundary wall.

In addition, we need to excavate behind the house to get the ground to the right level for paving and I need to know whether it is safe to do so or whether we are going to disturb the foundations. Maybe the engineer who did the original engineering plans is the one to ask – though, as far as I can tell, the engineering plans were not followed as they specify mm freeboard.

Hi Lenny, Yes, it was your thread that got me thinking. Unfortunately for us – too late. We just trusted all the people involved in our project. Your thread got me thinking about this too. My answer would be yes and no. Hi Snowing, Thanks for the interest.
