# Rate Analysis of Plastering

In an earlier post we had discussed the cost estimation for different construction activity. Now, we are going to see the rate analysis of plastering along with an example.

But one thing you have to understand the general aspects of Rate analysis of civil works.

## Rate Analysis of Plastering

The following points have to be considered while analyzing the rate.

1. Wages for the manpower including  with their transportation
2. Output of the Manpower
3. Required material including wastages
4. Power consumption
5. Water consumption
6. Supervision charges
7. Tools & Equipments
8. Contingencies

Ok, Let Us analyse the rate of plastering for the area of 10 Sqm.

Mortar Ratio – 1:3 and  Thickness – 15mm.

First, estimate the material quantity for the particular area including with wastages.

Cement – 1.63 Bags  and Sand – 0.174 Cum.

Estimation already explained in Plaster Volume Calculator.

Second step, to find out the required manpower for the particular work.

For 10 sqm of Plastering

• Mason – 1 Day
• Helper – 1.2 Day
• Water Man – 0.1 Day
