Method Statement for Anti-termite

The method statement for anti-termite defines the procedure for the sequence of works for surface treatments and termite control after leveling/compaction of the filled soil and before polythene/damp proof membrane is laid, considering all the necessary safety and quality aspects of the work activities.

What is the anti-termite treatment?

Anti-termite treatment is a process in which soil treatment is applied to a building in the early stages of its construction. The purpose of anti-termite treatment is to provide the building with a chemical barrier against the sub-terrain termites. The anti-termite treatment being a specialized job, calls for thorough knowledge of the chemicals, soils, termite to be dealt with and the environmental conditions, in order to give effective treatment and lasting protection to the property undergoing treatment. It is therefore imperative that the works of anti-termite treatment should get executed through specialized agencies only. The pre constructional soil treatment is required to be applied during the construction stages of the sub-structure up to the subbase level.

Presented here is a sample of method statement that can be formatted as submittal in the project’s QA documentation.
