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. ****60****0 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

S.N | Description | Unit | Quantity | Rate | Amount |

A. | Material | ||||

1 | Bricks | No. | 5000 | 8 | 40000 |

2 | Cement | Bags | 17.63 | 350 | 6170 |

3 | Sand | Cu. m | 2.448 | 500 | 1224 |

B | Labour | ||||

1 | Mason | Day | 8.83 | 600 | 5298 |

2 | Mazdoor | Day | 15.90 | 400 | 3532 |

3 | Bhisti | Day | 1.77 | 350 | 619 |

Total Rs. | 56843 |

**Finally,**

S.N | Description | Unit | Quantity | Rate | Amount |

Total Rs. | 56843 | ||||

Water Charge:- | 1.5% | 852.64 | |||

Contractor Charge:- | 10% | 5684.3 | |||

Grand Total:- | Rs. | 63379.94 |

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