2.6. BUILT UP RATE IN BRICKWORK

Unit for brickwork is m² 

1m² brickwork include material cost, labour cost and profit & overhead 

Material need is brick and mortar 

Brick: size → 215mm × 102.5mm × 65mm 

  Brick + mortar = brickwall  

102.5mm + 10mm = 112.5 mm brickwall in stretcher bond (front face) 

215mm + 10mm = 225mm thick 

65mm + 10mm = 75mm high 

EXAMPLE 1 

 One common brick (brickwall) in  cement and sand (1:3) in English bond as described in external wall. Calculate 1m2 brickwall. 

Information 

  • 1 pallet of brick = RM 28.00  
  • 1 bag of cement = RM 12.80  
  • 1m³ sand = RM 40.00  
  • Skill labour per day = RM 70.00  
  • General labour per day = RM 35.00  
  • Exmet per m² = RM 18.00  
  • The height  of wall = 2.80m
