## Quantity of material required for given construction area

### Approximate cost on various work of material to complete the construction for 1000ft2

#### Total Cost

$=\mathrm{Builtup area}×\mathrm{Approx cost per sq. ft.}$

$=\mathrm{1000}×\mathrm{1000}$

$=\mathrm{1000000.00 Rs.}$

#### Amount of Cement Required

$=\mathrm{Builtup area}×\mathrm{0.4}$

$=\mathrm{1000}×\mathrm{0.4}$

$=\mathrm{400.00 Bags}$

#### Cement Amount

$=\frac{16.4}{100}×\mathrm{Total cost}$

$=\frac{16.4}{100}×\mathrm{1000000.00}$

$=\mathrm{164000.00 Rs.}$
Note: Amount of cement required per 1 ft2 = 0.4 bags & 16.4%

#### Amount of Sand Required

$=\mathrm{Builtup area}×\mathrm{0.816}$

$=\mathrm{1000}×\mathrm{0.816}$

$=\mathrm{816.00 Ton}$

$=\frac{7.4}{100}×\mathrm{Total cost}$

$=\frac{7.4}{100}×\mathrm{1000000.00}$

$=\mathrm{74000.00 Rs.}$
Note: Amount of aggregate required per 1 ft2 = 0.608 ton & 7.4%

#### Amount of Steel Required

$=\mathrm{Builtup area}×4$

$=\mathrm{1000}×4$

$=\mathrm{4000.00 Kg.}$

#### Steel Amount

$=\frac{24.6}{100}×\mathrm{Total cost}$

$=\frac{24.6}{100}×\mathrm{1000000.00}$

$=\mathrm{246000.00 Rs.}$
Note: Amount of steel required per 1 ft2 = 4 ton & 24.6%

#### Amount of Paint Required

$=\mathrm{Builtup area}×\mathrm{0.18}$

$=\mathrm{1000}×\mathrm{0.18}$

$=\mathrm{180.00 lt}$
Note: Amount of paint required per 1 ft2 = 0.18 lt. & 4.1%

#### Amount of Bricks Required

$=\mathrm{Builtup area}×8$

$=\mathrm{1000}×8$

$=\mathrm{8000.00 Pcs.}$

#### Flooring

$=\mathrm{Builtup area}×\mathrm{1.3}$

$=\mathrm{1000}×\mathrm{1.3}$

$=\mathrm{1300.00 Sq. ft.}$

#### Finishers

$=\frac{16.5}{100}×\mathrm{Total cost}$

$=\frac{16.5}{100}×\mathrm{1000000.00}$

## Construction Cost Estimator Calculator

Thumb rule for calculation; Average cost of construting a resedential ternament region may very from Rs. 800/Sq. ft. - Rs. 2,500/Sq. ft. depending open quality of material.

This cost includes entire cost of labour and material from excavation to fitting of doors and window with eletrical wiring and plumbing cost.

This cost excludes eletrical and plumbing accessories, any cost of painting other than whitewashing and furniture works.

So, by above thumb rule Approx Cost of Construction of Midium Specification = 1000 * 900 = Rs. 9,00,000 Where, 1000 is builtup area and 900 is As per thumb rule assumed value.

Condition: Actual cost depends upon structure and architectural drawing and actual site condition

Further more to get an approximat estimat of various quantities required for 1000 sq. ft. built-up area we can use following thumb rule.

Thumb Rule of Quantities of Material for 1000 sq. ft.
• Cement = 400 bags
• Sand = 51 Cubic meter or 81,600 kg. or 81.6 Ton (Assume density = 1600 kg/m3)
• Aggregate = 38 Cubic meter or 60,800 kg. or 60.8 Ton (Assumption density = 1600 kg/m3)
• Steel = 4 kg/sq. ft. = 4000 kg/1000 sq. ft.
• Paint = 180 lt.
• Bricks = 8 Bricks/sq. ft. = 8000 Bricks/1000 sq. ft.
• Flooring = 1300 sq. ft. = 325 No. of Tiles

Condition: Actual quantities depend upon architecture and structural drawings.

Thumb rule are derived from observing more than 500 construction costs of input have been taken from various reference matrerials.

Further more approximat cost on various work or material is as below as per thumb rule.

Total Cost = 9,00,000 Materials,
• Cement = 16.4% = 1,47,600 Rs.
• Sand = 12.3% = 1,10,700 Rs.
• Aggregate = 7.4% = 66,600 Rs.
• Steel = 24.6% = 2,21,400 Rs.
• Finishers = 16.5% = 1,48,500 Rs.
(Paint = 4.1% + Tiles = 8.0% + Bricks = 4.4%)
• Fittings = 22.8% = 2,05,200 Rs.
(Window = 3%, Doors = 3.4%, Plumbing = 5.5%, Eletrical = 6.8%, Sanitary = 4.1%)
• Total Cost = 9,00,000 Rs. / 1000 sq. ft. Construction area
