I'm not an orthodox, but completely agree with you.
For a sound job, planning everything properly is
always better than patching, and besides what you
mentioned, the rebar is also to be arranged according

Asunto: Anchor Bolts- Some thoughts
>Reference: Chris Towne's query on Anchor Bolts.
>I have been wondering why it is necessary to drill
>into the concrete piers later for fixing the anchor
>If the building is being built in phases, and it is
>already known that there will be future construction,
>is it not a better idea to design the anchor bolts now
>and provide them now itself ? They could be concealed
>by embedding the projected portions in brick work or
>If projecting anchor bolts are for any reason
>precluded, perhaps pipe sleeves could be used now and
>left in place for accommodating anchor bolts later.
>Drilling into concrete should be the last resort and
>only if other alternatives are, for good reasons,
>already ruled out.
>Perhaps it is not possible to freeze the positions of
>the anchor bolts now . Is that the reason for
>considering drilling into the concrete ?
>Somehow, as an orthodox engineer, the idea of drilling
> into concrete for inserting an anchor bolt makes me
>Just my humble (if orthodox) opinion.
