### What will be the cost of AAC block wall masonry?/ Rate analysis of 200mm. thick AAC block wall work.

In this article, let us calculate the cost of AAC block wall, constructed by using adhesives as well as cement mortar.

Before proceeding further, you have to go through the articles 👇

2.  The material calculation for AAC block wall construction with cement mortar.

A.  Material cost:

1.  AAC blocks.

The market rate for the AAC blocks ranges from INR 2800/CUM to 3400/CUM.

Let us take an average rate of INR 3100/CUM for the calculation purpose.

Volume of AAC block = 0.024 CUM.

So, the cost of a single  AAC block

= [(INR 3100 × 0.024 CUM) ÷ 1CUM ]

= 74.4 say INR 75/-

2.  Adhesive bags:

The market rate for the 40kg. adhesive bag ranges from INR 500/- to 700/- per bag.

Let us take an average rate of INR 600/- for the calculation purpose.

B.  Labor cost:

The labor cost per CUM of  AAC block wall construction ranges from INR 1800/- to 2500/-

Let us consider an average rate of INR 2150/- for the calculation purpose.

Now, let us calculate the cost of the AAC block wall per CUM in the table format.

1.  Cost of an AAC block wall constructed with adhesives:

 Sl. no. Item. Qty. Rate. in INR. Unit. Cost in INR. 1. AAC  block 40.58 75/- No. 3043.50 2. Adhesive bag of 40kg. wt. 0.713 600/- bag 427.80 3. Miscellaneous Lump-sum 150.00 4. The material cost = 3,621.30 5. Add 5% wastage = 181.07 6. Total material cost = 3802.37 7. Labour cost = 2150.00 8. The total cost of AAC block masonry = 5952.37

2.  Cost of an  AAC block wall constructed with cement mortar.

 Sl. no. Item. Qty. Rate. in INR. Unit. Cost in INR. 1. AAC block 39 75/- Nos. 2,925.00 2. Cement 0.3505 380/- bag 133.19 3. Sand 0.072 2100/- CUM 151.20 4. Curing Lump-sum 200.00 5. Miscellaneous Lump-sum 150.00 6. The material cost = 3,559.39 7. Add 5% wastage = 177.97 8. Total material cost = 3,737.36 9. Labour cost = 2,150.00 10. The total cost of AAC block masonry = 5,887.36

Note:

1. The quantity of materials in the table is taken from the above-said articles.

2. To get accurate results, insert the ongoing market rate of labor & materials in your country.

From the above tables, you can observe that the construction cost of the AAC block will be nearly the same in both cases.

My suggestion is, always use adhesives, instead of cement mortar for better construction quality.
