Calculate the cost of construction in India. Order detailed construction cost estimate & Save.

What is detailed cost estimate?
A detailed cost estimate is a step by step calculation of the material and labor required to complete a construction project. This document is prepared after analyzing the architectural, structural, elevation and other drawings of the building and has all details about the cost, material and labor involved in a project. For example, it will give you the exact quantity of cement bags, bricks, sand, steel and other raw material required and the prices in your area. This information is immensely useful in completing a construction project within the decided cost.
 
 
 
How would this service help you save money?
1.1) Negotiate well with Contractor: It is normally seen that the contractor quote hefty amount for a construction job if they think that the home owners do not know about the internal calculations. This document will help you negotiate a better price with your contractor. In the current market scenarios these negotiations can save you Lacs of rupees.
 
1.2) Do not overpay: At the site, a lot of contractors demand money as the work progresses. It happens in both through rate contracts and labor rate contracts. The building owners usually do not have an idea if the work completed at the site equals to the money paid to the contractor. We have seen several cases where Contractors intentionally quote very less compared to the market price and then leave the project midway as soon as the money paid to them is more than their investment. Using our report you can find out how much you should have paid for the work completed at site.
 
1.3) Ensure that right quantity is used in Construction:Even after the contract is signed, the contractor may not use optimal quantity of raw material. With detailed cost estimate you will know exactly how much material should be used at each stage of construction. You can track the material movement and ensure that right quantity material is used in your building as per the Architect's/Engineer's specifications.
 
1.4) Material procurement and planning: Material prices fluctuate a lot and can have significant impact during construction. Also, if you know the material usage, you may buy material at bulk which saves considerable amount of money. The detailed cost estimate will tell you exactly how much material you need at each stage so that you can procure and budget the construction material properly.
 
1.5) Prevent delay in project/Prevent material leakage & theft: Majority of the money wasted in construction is due to the delay in material procurement as each material needs some time to arrive at the site. Use our document to ensure that right quantity of material is available at the site at all time

If you know how much material would be consumed at each stage then you can relate this with the progress of project at site. This will help you catch the pilferage or theft of the material at the site
 
 
 
Save upto 20 times with the detailed cost estimate report?
Our calculations and feedback from our clients have shown that this report gives you 1000% to 2000% return of your investment. The detailed estimate cost are:

From 10,001 Sq. Ft onwardsRs. 1.25 per square feet.

3)Detail of Material (Required for the whole project)
