Step No.1

Step No.3

After the excavation, spread a PCC bed for levelling and combine it with a waterproofing agent.

Fill concrete in the shuttering, and once it strengthens, begin the curing process.

Step No.6

After backfilling, begin work on the plinth beam.

After that, build walls of the basement. Remember, the walls of the basement should be strong. So, before backfilling, cover the outward part with waterproofing plaster water leakage. Complete waterproofing of the inner part of the wall too.
