For the concrete post and beam construction 10 mm and 12 mm reo-bar is used to tie the whole structure together. The bars are bent to the correct shape and cut to size, tied together with tie wire. The verticle post are put in place, folowed by the lintels until they form the basic structure. Then the mesh for the slab is created and tied, ready for the formwork.

Try to keep the steel at least 3" inside the concrete any place it will be exposed to earth or water. This protects the steel against rusting.

Elsewhere, try to cover the steel with at least an inch of concrete. That will prevent spalling in the future.
