Concrete columns

  • #1
This is regarding a building a house with 3 floors. I have seen some masons are first do the concrete structure and then they do the brick structure.
But I have seen some do the basement first and do the bricks first and in between they keep a space for columns and they pour concrete mixture in between the walls to do the columns.

Which one is good? and why?

Welcome to the PF.

What country are you in? What do your local building codes say about this type of construction? :smile:

Each has it's place. Your construction team must evaluate which process would be best for you.

In which case, are you referring to the bricks that are used as a façade for the building exterior and have no load bearing capacity.
