Concrete quantity calculation is easy if it is for a rectangular or square shape. When it is complex geometric shapes, then it seems like a daunting task. Every Complex Geometric shape can be disintegrated into simple shapes. Here in the staircase concrete calculation, we are going to dismantle the staircase…

Probably D2/162 is the first formula we ever learn in the construction industry. We know it is used to calculate the weight of steel bars. Also, know the importance of estimation in the Bar Bending Schedule. Here we are going to discuss the derivation of this formula. Derivation of D2/162 …

Calculating the tiles requirement for a building seems like a simple task. There are some precautions to be taken, or else you may end up facing the below challenges. You may end up ordering twice because of your estimation You may end up with colour differences on the required tiles…

The material wastage is the major problem in construction that affects the project cost significantly. Some material wastages like bricks that could be reusable for brick bat coba, and some can’t be reused again in construction. However, we can not completely stop the wastages from happening while working, but we…

Mostly we may using the thumb rules like concrete calculation, manpower estimation, material requirement for plastering, wastage’s calculation, brick work calculation, etc.,

In an earlier post, we had discussed the cost estimation for different construction activity. Now, we are going to see the rate analysis for plastering. Before analysis, understand the general aspects of Rate analysis of civil works. Plastering Rate Analysis Basis The following points have to be considered while analyzing…

The typical scenario maybe like this. So I had so much space under my parking lot. Can I build a giant water tank in here? So that I don’t need to worry about the storage issue anytime. Big No! Water Tank Capacity Requirement Be it underground or overhead water tanks…

An accurate bar bending schedule can able to prepare based on the bar bending schedule formulas. In Fact, the bar bending schedule formulas are called Bar bending shape codes.

The rate analysis of civil works has contains different activity like the cost of material, manpower and equipment, etc.The cost of construction activities arrives in terms of the rate per unit and the cost is arrived including of material and manpower cost.
