Topic: Construction Specifications

Hello All,

I am planning for a construction of a house of about 1600 Sq.Ft. I have approached a builder who has given me a specification as attached.

The price quoted per sq.ft is @ 1550. 

Please let me know if this is according to the market standard. 

Regards,
Vikram

Dear Vikram

      Your file is not open and you have not mentioned the place of construction as there is very much differance of rates from place to place. Secondly The cost per sqft is on higher side. Thirdly the cost calculation is depend upon the plan of the building including height and elevation of the building with the specification used in the building. In my view if you want detail cost of construction then prepare detail estimate according to drawings and specifications. A small amount expenditure give you lot of information about quantity of material, rate and specifaction.
