Dear experts,
I am planning to construct a plaza with below details.

Plot size: 3.75marla (96square yard)
Covered area: around 3600 square feet
Number of floors: basement,gf,1st floor, 2nd floor.

Location: bahria phase 7, commercial.

Please guide me with your sincere advice about how to proceed with construction. What is the estimated cost of construction per square feet.
A friend of mine is asking for 250rs per square feet for managing all construction and he will charge me for all other spending's like labor, furniture etc.

    Rs.250 per square foot is too much as supervision charges .

    The labour rate for building a plaza in Bahria town phase 7 ranges from Rs.300/sft to Rs.400/sft. This rate includes all expenses : labours, masons, machinery employed by contractor, his supervision/ management etc.

    I sincerely advise you first of all get detailed estimate from a professional.We can do it at very reasonable charges plus construction as well . We are experienced builders working in Rawalpindi/ Islamabad for 20 years

            Rs 250 x 3600 = 900,000 lac Rs. This is the figure your friend is asking as his supervision Fees.

            Now let see what it should cost you:

            Basement grey structure with 9'' thick retaining walls will cost you around 1800 Rs

            Assuming from your provided data, your basement is around 900 sqft

            Basement cost 1800x900 = 1,620,000 /=

            GF, FF & SF cost 1350x2700 = 3,645,000 /=

            Total for grey structure = 5,265,000/=

            A normal grade finish will cost you around minimum 500 Rs / sqft

            Finishing cost = 3600x650 = 2,340,000/=

            Total cost of your project = 7,605,000/=

            This will be your cost of you have some basic ideas about construction and you know what you are doing and what is required to be done at what stage. You keep away from wear & tears, jilted labour, material vendors/suppliers and contractors who take your money and runaway without doing proper jobs etc.

            Now the figure that your friend is demanding, comes out to be around 12% of your total cost incurred. Which is a very reasonable figure considering the amount of hassle one has to go through while construction. You can bargain him to around 10%.

                Dear Mr. Khan

                Few days ago you asked for second opinion. What do you mean ? I suppose you are thinking to get work done by not letting the work on contract. There are 2 others options .

                We offer to manage & supervise your construction till completion on supervision basis. You will arrange cons. Materials and we will arrange skilled & unskilled man power . You would pay wages of labour , also you would pay rent of tools/ machinery hired or rented for construction purpose. We would charge you only our supervision expenses which could be a fixed monthly amount or a certain % age of total cost of project. This may seem you some thing new but a large number of projects are being executed by this mode where owners / clients are very concern about work quality and do not want to trust on contractors . When you reach on some decision may be called at following number
