The grey structure of a house is extremely important in constructing a residential unit. It lays the foundation of a house and if the basic structure of the unit is weak, no matter how much money you spend in the finishing of the house, it can show signs of cracked concrete in the walls or even collapse anytime because of substandard construction material used. The construction materials used in an A+ category home are of higher quality than an A category house. In this blog, we will discuss the detailed construction cost of the grey structure of an A+ category 10 marla house.
Without further ado, let’s get started.
CONSTRUCTION COST OF THE GREY STRUCTURE OF AN A+ CATEGORY 10 MARLA HOUSE IN 2020
If you’re wondering how much money goes into laying the foundation of an A+ category 10 marla house in 2020, then continue reading the piece.
The covered area for a double-story 10 marla house is 3,300 sq. ft. Both the floors have a covered area of 1,650 per sq. ft. It has five bedrooms with attached bathrooms, two kitchens, a terrace on the first floor and a mumtee on the second floor.
The first step to build a house is to lay its foundation.
To build the grey structure of an A+ category 10 marla house, the following high quality construction materials are needed: Bricks, cement, kassu, rebar, sand, bajri, installation of a fancy gate and safety grills.
To calculate the construction cost of the grey structure of an A+ category house, we must also determine the costs incurred in installing plumbing systems and the material and costs incurred in the electrical wiring of the house. Of course, nothing can be done without the hard work of labourers. Therefore, it is important to first know the current labour rates in Pakistan.
Let’s check them out.
It is only the labourers who carry out the difficult task of laying the foundation of a house. For the construction cost of the grey structure of an A+ category 10 marla house, labourers would charge around PKR 375 per sq. ft. which would take the total amount to around PKR 1,237,500.
Labour Cost = PKR 1,237,500
BRICKS, SAND, CRUSH AND RORI
An A+ category 10 marla house will require approximately 90,000 bricks to build its grey structure. The Awwal category of bricks is of superior quality. It is available at the rate of PKR 14.5 which means that the total cost of bricks would be PKR 1,305,000.
To build the foundation of an A+ category 10 marla house, sand is also required. There are two kinds of sand used in the process – Ravi sand and Chenab sand, which are usually used to make the concrete mixture. Around 7,000 cubic feet of Ravi sand is used at the rate of PKR 20 per cubic feet. This means a total of PKR 140,000 cubic feet of Ravi sand is used.
The sand of river Chenab is of better quality and therefore the rates are slightly higher. You would however need less amount of Chenab sand to construct the grey structure of an A+ category 10 marla home. Around 1,200 cubic feet of Chenab sand at the rate of PKR 35 is used, taking the total to PKR 42,000.
Crush or gravel is used to make the base structure of floors and roof in the house. Builders and contractors want to use Margalla crush, but Sargodha crush can also be used.
The required quantity of Margalla lintel/lenter is approximately 1,600 cubic feet and it is mostly used in constructing the roof of the house. The rate is PKR 75 per cubic feet which means around PKR 120,000 would be required.
Sargodha gravel is used in building the floor of the house. 1000 cubic feet of Sargodha crush would be required to build the grey structure of an A+ category 10 marla house at a PKR 65 per cubic feet rate. This means we would need PKR 65,000 of Sargodha gravel. Rori costs around PKR 35,000.
Cost for Bricks, Sand, Crush and Rori = PKR 1,707,000
Cement, Kassu and Rebar
Kassu is mostly used to fill empty plots and it is a mixture of mitti and sand. Around PKR 85,000 are required for Kassu.
Cement is used in the plastering and many other things during construction. For a 10 marla house, approximately 800 cement bags are required at the rate of PKR 495 per bag. The total cost of cement used in the grey house structure of a 10 marla house would be PKR 396,000.
Rebar is also used which is basically Sarya of 60 grade. Around 5 tons or 5000 kg of Sarya would be used to construct a 10 marla house. The rate per ton of Sarya is PKR 105 and the total cost of Sarya used would be PKR 525,000.
Cost of Cement, Kassu and Rebar = PKR 1,006,000
PLUMBING AND WIRING
To construct a10 marla house in Pakistan, you also need to install plumbing systems. You also need to set up electrical wiring in the house. As far as plumbing is concerned, it means the water supply, gas, sewerage and drainage systems. PKR 135,000 will be needed to install the plumbing systems in an A+ category 10 marla house. It also includes the cost to hire a plumber.
An electrician is needed to carefully place electrical wiring in the house. You would need approximately PKR 115,000.
Cost of Plumbing & Wiring = PKR 250,000
GRILLS, GATE AND CHOUGAT STEEL
To calculate the construction cost of the grey structure of an A+ category 10 marla house you also need to determine the quantity and rates of steel used in the house. Chougat Steel of around PKR 76,500 is needed.
In building an A+ category house in Pakistan, you also need to have a fancy main gate for which you should keep an estimated budget of PKR 95,000 and for the safety grills also PKR 95,000 would be needed.
Cost of Grills, Gate and Chougat Steel = PKR 266,500
