Comparing the construction cost of concrete block, clay brick, & AAC block walls.

Let us now compare the construction cost of concrete block, burnt clay brick, & AAC block walls.

I have calculated the cost of all these types of bricks & blocks as linked below.

So, before proceeding further, you have to go through these 4 articles ðŸ‘‡

As the thickness of all these types of walls varies in their dimensions, we will compare their cost volumetrically.

I have extracted the data from the above articles and made the comparison in a table format as shown below.

 Sl. no. Item. Cost per CUM in INR Cost per Cu ft. in INR Unit. 1. Concrete block 3513.84 99.50 INR 2. 9" brick wall 5633.45 159.52 INR 3. AAC block 5952.37 168.55 INR 4. 4"  brick wall 6150.81 174.17 INR

From the above table, you can observe that the concrete block walls are cheaper when compared to other types of wall construction.

Now, let us observe the comparative cost ratio of all types of walls, keeping the cost of concrete block construction as X (base rate ).

 Sl. no. Item. Cost per CUM in INR Cost per Cu ft. in INR Unit. Cost ratio in X 1. Concrete block 3513.84 99.50 INR X 2. 9" brick wall 5633.45 159.52 INR 1.60X 3. AAC block 5952.37 168.55 INR 1.70X 4. 4"  brick wall 6150.81 174.17 INR 1.75X

When we construct the wall masonry, the cost per sq ft. plays an important role to decide the total cost of the building.

So, for your reference, the comparative cost /sq ft. & their cost ratio are shown in the table format.

 Sl. no. Item. Wall thickness In inches Cost per Sq  ft. in INR Cost  ratio In X 1. Concrete block 6" 49.75 X 2. Brick wall 4" 58.05 1.17X 3. AAC block 8" 112.37 2.26 X 4. Brick wall 4" 119.64 2.40 X
