Hi there guys,

Just wanted to ask if you could possibly point me towards the right direction of a step-by-step basement construction. It's a uni project, though I really don't know where to start. Any help would be lovely.

Sorry if it's alittle blunt

Thanks :)

I don't know what a "uni" project might be, so more information would be needed.

Basements are not what I would consider DIY projects, but.....depending on a lot of factors and design, maybe.

Hi guys.

Well, it's just a site that requires the construction/report on how to 'build' a basement, which will be used for storage and a carpark. Though those point forms help Jogr, thanks! :thumbup:

I just need the know all the required steps that I would have to look into in havin a step by step, like I will follow those point forms, but I need other little things such as a stairs and ramps for wheelchair access.

So for example, just need to know which steps, for example, waterproofing or insulation or slabbing, I'd have to start first.

Thanks fellas :D
