What will be the cost of single (4") brick wall masonry?/ Rate analysis of 4" brick wall.

 Let us consider single brick wall masonry as shown in the drawing for calculation purposes.

Given data:

Length of the brick wall = 16ft.

Height of the brick wall = 10ft.

The thickness of the brick wall = 0.33ft.


The total volume of the brick wall masonry

= length × height × thickness

= 16ft. × 10ft. × 0.333ft.

= 53.33 cu ft.


The total area of brick wall

= length × height 

=16ft. × 10ft. 

160 sq ft.


A.  Material calculation:

Read the article "How to calculate the materials required for 4" brickworks?" before proceeding further.

       No. of bricks required/ cu ft. of wall = 13.57 nos.

      No. of Cement bags required/ cu ft of wall = 0.0235 bags

      The volume of sand required/ cu ft. of wall = 0.1731 cu ft.

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

1. No. of  bricks required 

      = [vol. of brick wall × bricks/ cu ft.]

      =  [53.33 cu ft. × 13.57 nos.]

     = 723.73 nos.


2. No. of  cement bags required 

        = [vol. of brick wall × cement / cu ft.]

      =  [53.33 cu ft. × 0.0235 bags]

     = 1.253 bags


3. The volume of sand required 

  = [vol. of brick wall × sand/ cu ft.]

      =  [53.33 cu ft. × 0.1731 cu ft.]

     = 9.23 cu ft.


B.  Labor calculation:

The labor rate per sq ft. of the brick masonry ranges from INR 8/- to 14/- depending upon the region.

Let us consider an average rate of INR 11/- per sq ft.


The total cost of labor for 4" brick masonry

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

   = 160 sq ft. × 11/-

   = INR 1760/-


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

                                                      The material cost =

 7169.78

7.

                                                       Add 5% wastage =

   358.48

8.

                                                   Total material cost =

 7528.27

9.

                                                                Labour cost =

 1760.00

10.

                   The total cost of 4" brick masonry =

9288.27

 

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

The cost of single brick wall masonry/sq ft.

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

= 9288.27 ÷ 160

= INR 58.05 /sq ft.

The cost of single brick wall masonry/cu ft.

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

= 9288.27 ÷ 53.33

= INR 174.17 / cu ft.
