Before any construction of into the foundation and it acts as a supporter for ground beams and ground beams and slabs, a column stump is floor column construction. needed to be built on top of a pad foundation which extended from the piling below foundation.

Keeping this in view, how do you measure a concrete column?

Columns should have minimum dimensions of 8" x 8" and may be formed by formwork on four sides or formwork on two sides with blockwork on the other two. The minimum column reinforcement should be 4- ½ diameter bars with ¼" stirrups at 6" centres.

Subsequently, question is, what is the minimum size of column?

Minimum size of an RCC column should not be less than 9” x 12” (225mm x 300mm) with 4 bars of 12 MM Fe415 Steel. These days the minimum I use in my projects is 9″ x 12″ (225 mm x 300mm) with 6 bars of 12 MM Fe500 steel. You can never go wrong with strong columns.
