Civil - Estimation and Quantity Surveying - Estimate of Buildings

**Example 1 .1: **Prepare an
approximate estimate of building project with totalplinth area of** **all
building is 800 sqm. and from following data.

i) Plinth area rate Rs. 4500 per sqm

ii) Cost of water supply @7½ %of cost of building.

iii) Cost of Sanitary andElectrical installations each @ 7½% of cost ofbuilding.

iv)Cost of architectural features @1% of building cost.

v)Cost of roads and lawns @5% of building cost.

vi) Cost of P.S.
and contingencies @4%
of building

cost.
Determine the total cost of building project.

**Solution:**

Data given:

Plinth area
= 800m^{2}

Plinth area
rate = Rs. 4500 per Sq.m

Cost of
building = 800 x 4500 = Rs. 36,00,000=00

**Example 1 . 2 :**Prepare the rough
estimate for a proposed commercial complexfor a** **municipal corporation
for the following data.

Plinth Area = 500m2/floor Ht of each storey = 3.5m No. of storey's = G+2 Cubical content rate = Rs.
1000/m3

Provided for a
following as a percentage of structured cost

a) water supply & Sanitary arrangement -8%

b)Electrification -6%

c) Fluctuation of rates - 5%

d)Contractors profit - 10%

e)Petty supervision & contingencies - 3%

**Sol :**

Cubical content = No. of storey's (Plinth Area x height of each
storey) = 3(500x3.5) = 5250m3

Structural
cost = Cubical content x cubical content rate= 5250 x 1000 = 52.5 Lakhs

**Unit Base
Method**

**Example 1.3: **Prepare an
approximate estimate or rough cost estimate of ahospital building** **for 50
beds. The cost of construction altogether for each bed isRs. 60,000/ -.
Determine the total cost of hospital building.

**Solution:**

No. of beds
= 50

Cost of
construction = Rs. 60,000/-

Total Cost
of Hospital building = 50x 60,000= **Rs. 30,00,000/-**

**Example 1.4: **To prepare the
rough cost estimate of a hostel building whichaccommodate** **150 students.
The cost of construction including all provisions isRs. 15,000/- per student.
Determine total cost of building.

**Solution :**

No.of
students= 150

Cost of construction including all L.S. provisions = Rs.
15,000/- Total Cost of hostel building =150 x 15000 = Rs. 22,50,000/- (Rupees
twenty two lakhs, fifty thousand only)

**Example 1 . 5 **: From the given figure below calculate the detailed and
abstract estimate for the single roomed building (Load bearing type structure)
by

a) long wall & short wall method

b) Centre Line Method

**Example 1.6 **From the given figure below calculate the details and
abstractestimate for the** **single Storied residential buildingwith no of
rooms (Load bearing type structure) by Centre line

**Example 1.7 **From the given figure below calculate the details and
abstractestimate for the single storied residential building withno. of rooms (**Framed
Structured** type) by Centre Line Method
