House construction cost estimate in India; Detailed construction cost estimate; home office cost estimate  

At the time of the house construction there are many steps to be followed such as preparation of architectural drawings, structural drawings and obtaining approvals from concerned authorities etc. After doing all these exercises when we start construction work then we have to work on the preparation of budget, procurement of material and hiring the contractor etc and these processes can be simplified if you have a detailed construction cost estimate.

Here are some notes to help you understand the importance of cost estimation:-

• In most of the home construction projects, the money runs out before the home is completed.  This happens because the home owners do not have a stage by stage cost estimate. A detailed cost estimate can help you avoid this problem.

• From detail estimate you will get the information about all type of materials required for the work and the information about the actual quantity of all the materials required. You can use this knowledge to make agreement with the supplier in advance to avoid fluctuation in the market.

• If you do not know the estimated quantity of material required to build your home, the contractor may charge more amount to do the same work. With the detail estimate sheet you can cross check the quotation provided by the contractor.


• With the help of detail estimates we can arrange the materials according to the needs at site.  This will avoid unnecessary storage of materials, save the wastage of materials and blockage of money. It will also save unnecessary carriage and time.

• With arranging all the materials according to need it will help in smooth working and  to avoid wastage of labor.

• This will help to arrange funds according to requirement.

• Detail estimate also give the specification of the material required for the construction which will help in checking of the quality of the materials at site.


• If all the materials and labor will be arranged according to need it will help for timely completion of construction work which will save the expenditure spent on storage, watchman etc.

• Timely completion means timely use of house.

Big projects in India such as Delhi Metro were completed on time because they used these estimation techniques to identify the exact quantity required step wise.

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.

We will supply you the document containing step by step calculation of the material and labor required to complete a construction project. This document is prepared after analyzing the architectural plan of the building and has all details about the cost and material involved.
