### 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.

 Sl. no. Item. Qty. Rate. in INR. Unit. Cost in INR. 1. Red brick 723.73 8/- Nos. 5789.84 2. Cement 1.253 380/- bag 476.14 3. Sand 9.23 60/- Cu ft 553.80 4. Curing Lump-sum 200.00 5. Miscellaneous Lump-sum 150.00 6. 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.
