# Rate analysis of Brickwork – Free Excel Download

Rate analysis of brickwork masonry is done to estimate the number of different materials like bricks, cement, and sand and the number of labour required for required work. Here I have explained a numerical and a video at the last of this article.

## Numerical Example

Q) Calculate the quantity of dry materials and labor cost for first-class brick in the superstructure in cement mortar 1:4 in 10 cu. meter

The following rates may apply at the site for different materials,

Sand = Rs.500 per cu. Meter

Cement = Rs. 370 per Bags

Standard Bricks = Rs. 8 per piece

First Class mason = Rs. 600 per Day

Man Mazdoor = Rs.400 per day

Woman mazdoor/Bhisti = Rs.350 per day

Solution:-

Given,

Volume of Brickwork = 10 m. cube

Volume 1 Brick = 90 x 90 x 190 mm

= 0.90 x 0.90 x 0.190 = 0.001539 m. cube

Assume, Thickness of the mortar = 10 mm

1) Volume of 1 brick with Mortar,

= 0.100 x 0.100 x 0.200 = 0.002 m cube.

2) No. of bricks with mortar = 10/0.002 = 5000 No.

3) Now, Volume 5000 Bricks without mortar = 5000 x 0.001539 = 7.695 m cube.

So,

4) Volume of mortar remained = 10 – 7.695

= 2.305 m cube.

5) Dry Volume of Mortar,

= 2.305 x 1.33 = 3.06 m cube.

Given, Cement : Sand = 1:4 (Sum = 5)

6) Quantity of Cement = (Ratio of Cement/ Sum) x Dry Volume

= 1/5 x 3.06 = 0.612 m cube.

So, Weight of Cement = Volume x density

= 0.612 x 1440 = 881.28 Kg. (1440 is the density of cement)

= 881.28/50 = 17.62 Bags of Cement

7) Quantity of Sand = (Ratio of Sand/ Sum) x Dry Volume

= 4/5 x 3.06 = 2.448 m cube.

8) No. of Labour Calculation

For, Brickwork per 100 cu. Feet (2.83 cum), 2.5 Mason, 4.5 Mazdoor, 0.5 Bhisti per day

2.5/x = 2.83/10

Or, x = 8.83 Mason

Lly,

4.5/x = 2.83/10

Or, x = 15.4 Mazdoor

Lly,

0.5/x = 2.83/10 or, x = 1.76 Bhisti

## Rate Analysis Table

Finally,

Rate per m. cum = 63379.94 / 10 = Rs. 6337.99/ cu. meter
