# Minimum and Maximum Distance Between Two Columns

## Minimum and Maximum Distance Between Two Columns?

Hello Friends,

Basically, Today we will discuss what should be the minimum and maximum Spacing Between two Columns and what are the conditions on which depend the ” Minimum and Maximum Distance Between Two Columns“.

So, let’s Started,

First of All, You need to know

Minimum and Maximum Distance Between Two Columns

What is the column to column distance or spacing?

So, As shown in Pic.

In a building the distance between any two parallel columns is called “Spacing of Column” got it.

Now, what are the conditions of Maximum and Minimum Distance and Spacing of Columns?

So,

There are different types of conditions on which Column Distance or Spacing depend as following:-

1). Location Of Beam

It means a total load of the slab is transferred through the beam and beam to the column, so it is an important criterion to fix the distance of the column as per beam location and beam load.

2). Total Load on The Structure

3). Architectural Appearance

It is a very important factor on which column spacing mostly depends, and usually, this question is also asked in the interview.

4). The Slab Span

Column distance and spacing also depend on the Span of the Slab means the length of the slab, it is also an important factor.

5). Type of Structure

Column Spacing also depends on which type of structure you have to build, it’s a load-bearing Structure or framed structure.

### 6). Depends on Basement

The basement of any Building Structure is also an important factor which plays an important role in the spacing of column because it also depends on which type of basement you have to build. If you need extra space in the basement like parking etc. so you need to be built columns in maximum spacing or distance. So, it is also an important factor.

So, These are the 6 Important Factors on which the “Distance” and “Spacing” of a column in the building is totally dependent.

But Minimum and Maximum Distance Between Two Columns As on Practical basis,

The Minimum Spacing or Distance between the two columns should not be less than 2.5 Meters. It Must be 2.5 meters minimum distance.

Or,

Maximum Spacing & Distance of two Columns Should not be less than 7.5 meters.

However, You can take a Maximum distance or spacing  of two-column is anything

Where special different conditions to be applied.

But Generally, These Maximum and minimum distance or spacing of column Criteria should be applied.

So, I Hope now your doubts have been clear regarding the Minimum and Maximum Distance Between Two Columns.
