### What will be the cost of block wall masonry?/Rate analysis of concrete block masonry.

Let us consider solid concrete block masonry as shown in the drawing for calculation purposes.

Given data:

Length of the block masonry = 16ft.

Height of the block masonry = 10ft.

The thickness of the block masonry = 0.5ft.

The total volume of the block masonry

= length × height × thickness

= 16ft. × 10ft. × 0.5ft.

= 80 cu ft.

The total area of block masonry

= length × height

=16ft. × 10ft.

= 160 sq ft.

A. Material calculation:

Read the article "Calculating the quantity of materials in a 100 cubic ft. block wall." before proceeding further.

No. of blocks required/100 cu ft. of wall = 210 nos.

No. of Cement bags required/100 cu ft of wall = 1.038 bags

The volume of sand required/100 cu ft. of wall = 7.634 cu ft.

Note: The quantity of blocks, cement & sand/ 100 cu ft. is taken from the above-mentioned article.

1. No. of  concrete blocks required

= [(vol. of block wall ÷ 100 cu ft.) × blocks/100 cu ft.]

=  [(80 cu ft. ÷ 100 cu ft.) × 210 nos.]

= 168 nos.

2. No. of  cement bags required

= [(vol. of block wall ÷ 100 cu ft.) × bags/100 cu ft.]

=  [(80 cu ft. ÷ 100 cu ft.) × 1.038 bags]

= 0.83 bags.

3. The volume of sand required

=  [(vol. of block wall ÷ 100 cu ft.) × sand/100 cu ft.]

=  [(80 cu ft. ÷ 100 cu ft.) × 7.634 cu ft.]

6.11 cu ft.

B.  Labor calculation:

The labor rate per sq ft. of the block masonry ranges from INR 10/- to 15/- depending upon the region.

Let us consider an average rate of INR 12/- per sq ft.

The total cost of labor for block masonry

= total area of block masonry in sq ft.  × labor rate/ sq ft.

= 160 sq ft. × 12/-

= INR 1920/-

Now, let us calculate the total cost of block masonry in table format.

 Sl. no. Item. Qty. Rate. in INR. Unit. Cost in INR. 1. Solid block 168 28/- Nos. 4704.00 2. Cement 0.83 400/- bag 332.00 3. Sand 6.11 60/- Cu ft 366.60 4. Curing Lump-sum 200.00 5. Miscellaneous Lump-sum 150.00 6. The material cost = 5752.60 7. Add 5% wastage = 287.63 8. Total material cost = 6040.23 9. Labour cost = 1920.00 10. The total cost of block masonry = 7960.23

Note: To get accurate results, insert your regional market rate of materials & labor, in the above table.

The cost of block masonry/sq ft.

= [total block masonry cost ÷ total block wall area]

= 7960.23 ÷ 160

= INR 49.75/sq ft.

The cost of block masonry/ cu ft.

= [total block masonry cost ÷ total block wall volume]

= 7960.23 ÷ 80

= INR 99.50/cu ft.
