##### Quantities of Material Require to Construction a Building

Everybody is interesting to know the approximate quantities of material require from plan of the building. So the calculations may be done by following **” Thumb Rules “** describe below quantities may vary up to the extent of 10%.

## Bricks ( Quantities of Material Require )

Considering the wall area of 1/5th of the total floor area, bricks at the rate of 2150 No. per sq.m of the wall area may be calculate.

## Cement

It may be calculate applying ” Thumb Rules ” 6.5 bags per sq.m of the plinth area. Cement so calculate has provision for R.C.C slab, lintel, plastering, flooring and brick work in cement mortar.

## Sand

Quantity of sand may be calculate @ 0.50 cu.m of the plinth area.

## Coarse Aggregate

Coarse Aggregate may be calculate @ 15 to 17 % in cu.m per 100 sq.m of the plinth area.

## Steel

Steel may be calculate @ 18 kg per sq.m of the plinth area.

## Brick Aggregate

This is to be calculate at the rate of 10 cu.m per 100 sq.m of plinth area.

## Woodwork in Frames and Shutters

Wood may be calculate @ 2.00 to 2.40 cu.m per 100 sq.m of plinth area.

## Paint

To be calculate @ 11 litres per 100 sq.m of the plinth area.

## Primer

To be calculate @ 7 litres per 100 sq.m of the plinth area.

## Winding Wire

For every 100 sq.m slab approximately 27 kg of 18 gauge soft black iron wire is require or one kg per quintal of steel may be consider.
