Sizes of iron rod used in different RCC member are determined on the basis of architectural drawing & designing for 2 storey (G+1) building or simply ground floor building. If you want to design for residential building structure and where the height of building is not more than 9.5 m and spacing of columns are 4m to 5m, not more than 5m, you can do it, but it seems little bit smaller section.

When we draw design for rcc structure for residential 2 storey (G+1) building you have to also check the,live load, soil type, dead load, vertical load, horizontal load, slenderness ratio, deflection of beam etc. as per I.S. Code guidelines.

Iron rod size for 2 storey (G+1) building:- According to general thumb rule, we will assume a structure of G+1 (2 storey) residential building,using standard 9″ thick walls,we should use iron rod size of 10mm as mesh bar for footing, 6nos of 12mm size used for column, 4nos of 12mm size used for beam and 10mm & 8mm iron rod size used for rcc roof slab casting.
