For example, if your new home is to be 2,000 square feet and your builder estimated that it would cost $350,000 to build, then **your cost per square foot is 300,000 divided by 2,000**, or $175.

You need to calculate how many concrete you need for 3 bedroom self contain. Generally speaking, **350–400 kg of cement can be used to make 1 cubic meter concrete**. A bag of cement is usually 50 kg. A JS500 concrete mixer can make use of 4 bag cement to produce 500L concrete.

For example, if your new home is to be 2,000 square feet and your builder estimated that it would cost $350,000 to build, then **your cost per square foot is 300,000 divided by 2,000**, or $175.

What is Material Cost? Material cost is **the cost of materials used to manufacture a product or provide a service**. Excluded from the material cost is all indirect materials, such as cleaning supplies used in the production process.

Today Cement Price

---|---|

OPC Cement Grade 43 | Rs. 240 per bag |

OPC Cement Grade 53 | Rs. 262 per bag |

White Cement | Rs. 585 per bag |

PPC Pozzolana Portland Cement | Rs. 265 per bag |

**214 Kg ( 4.3 bags )** quantity of cement required for constructing a single room having size 10 feet height, 10 feet length and 4 inch thick brickwall.

**Divide the total costs by the total area**. In the example, the amount per square foot of the project is $0.90, since $45, the total costs for the project, divided by 50 square feet, the area of the project, is 90 cents per square foot.

**Multiply the total wall length by 0.75 to figure out the number of studs needed**. Three studs are needed for each corner. Each corner should have four studs added.

24 feet 10 inches converted to inches = 298 inches. It will take **20 studs** to frame this will with 16 inches on centers, stud placement.

If the size of the plot or land being used for a project is 500 sq ft and the FAR determined for that particular city/locality is 1.5, then, the total floor area that can be constructed will be 750 sq ft (500×1.5) according to far calculation.

Around 0.4 cement bag is used per sqft of construction that makes a total of **400 cement bags** of 50 kg each is consumed for 1000 sqft house.

Multiply the width and height of each opening to find the area. Subtract the area of the openings from the total area of the wall. Divide the result by 32. Round up to the nearest whole number; this is the number of sheets needed to cover one side of the wall.

Calculate the Area as Square Footage

If you are measuring a square or rectangle area, multiply length times width; **Length x Width = Area**.

**Approximate cost on various work of material to complete the construction** **for 1000 ft** ^{2}

- Total Cost. = Builtup area × Approx cost per sq. ft. = 1000 × 1000. = 1000000.00 Rs.
- Amount of Aggregate Required. = Builtup area × 0.608. = 1000 × 0.608. = 608.00 Ton.
- Flooring. = Builtup area × 1.3. = 1000 × 1.3. = 1300.00 Sq.

Maths calculation, 1) 12×12 = 144″, 2) 144÷16 = 9, 3) 9+1 = 10, 4) 10×1.15 = 11.5, rounded to 12, thus it will take **10 to 12 number of 2×4 studs** to frame a 12 foot wall with 16 inches on centers, stud placement.

**Find the width of the roof and multiply it by the length.** **Then, take that number and divide it by the square footage of a single square of shingles or plywood**. You'll know exactly how much material you will need to finish the project.

To calculate the number of sheets needed to cover a wall, you need to know the wall's square footage. **The square footage of a wall divided by the square footage of the sheathing (one 4ft x 8ft sheet = 32 square feet) equals the number of sheets needed**. If you have a small opening in your wall, then ignore that.

**1.187 bags** (59 kg) of cement is required for 100 sq ft 20 mm thick external wall plastering.

Material estimation for construction works or projects deals with **calculation of quantities of various materials, labors etc.** **required for construction**.

The framing materials for door openings are computed by **adding seven inches to the total opening size**. The header thickness for a 2x4 wall frame is calculated by adding 3.5 inches to the width or depth of the opening.

**Divide by the total square footage by the square footage of a sheet of plywood to find the number of sheets required to cover the space**. A 4×8 sheet of plywood is 32 ft^{2}. For example, if the area to be covered in plywood is 800 ft^{2} then 25 sheets of plywood will be needed to cover it.
