Sunken Slab Detail
Hi all, 

Can anybody send me an example of how a Sunken RC Slab should be detailed as to BS8110? 

I tried to find this information without success.  Attached is a current project I am working on.  Any hints or remarks are most welcomed. 

Actually I am also looking for examples of pitched (hip) RC roof detailing.

My email is and I will greatly appreciate if I can get a few jpeg, pdf or dwg example of slab reinforcement detailing to BS code.
