This document is written to make sure that the Manhole construction and installation works are executed and ensure that the work shall be conducted in a well-controlled and systematic way and conform to the specified requirements.


SCOPE OF WORKS

The work applies to the Manhole construction and installation of HV (High Voltage) and LV (Low Voltage) cables. 


METHOD STATEMENT

  1. The pit is excavated to its required depth to receive the concrete base for the construction of the manhole. The base shall be adequate in size to receive the external concrete surrounding the manhole. The position of the manhole shall be checked to avoid misalignment of pipes down and upstream of the manhole.
  2. Shoring to the pit shall be provided if the pit measured from the top edge is more than 1.5m.
  3. Excavate further to the desired level manually to achieve the required level.
  4. Excavate a sump pit at the bottom of the pit for de-watering.
  5. Prepare formwork to receive base for the positioning of the manhole and eventual concrete to the external of the manhole.
  6. Cast the base and allow the concrete to set for the next day to position the pre-cast concrete reinforced chamber rings.
  7. Break or puncture a hole through the chamber ring for the inlets and prepare the box-outs at the hacked openings before the 150mm concrete surround to the external of the manhole.
  8. Remove the formwork to the concrete surround the next day and lay the main drain lines to the openings of the manhole. 
  9. Install and prepare to cast the main drain at the end of the day.
  10. Remove all formwork in the trench and at the pit of the manhole.
  11. Backfill once the pit and trench are cleared of debris.
  12. Apply sulfate-resistant cement to the internal of the manhole.
  13. Render smooth gaps between chamber rings.
  14. Proceed to render the benching with cement mortar and construct the channels with glazed vitrified half channels according to the numbers of main or branch drain lines. 
  15. Form up the opening to the manhole with timber and wait for the commencements of the external finishes work by the builder before installing the approved type of frame and covers
  16. Call for Inspection.
