The first step in the design of buildings is the preparation of the 'general arrangement', popularly called the G.A. The G.A. is a drawing that shows the disposition of the structural elements such as the slabs and their types, the floor beams, the columns, and their interaction at the floor level under consideration.

Mar 12, 2017· Handrails, on the other hand, are something that can be grasped for guidance or support while walking, usually on a stair. The biggest difference between a guardrail and a handrail is that the area below the top rail of a guardrail is installed with additional components such that there is no opening large enough for a 4-in.-diameter sphere to pass through; this approximates the size of a ...
