### construction process

#### Building process

The building construction steps for any type of construction include the following.

#### 1. Preparing or leveling the ground

The construction site must be cleared before work can begin. This task involves the removal of trees, debris, and roots of the flat land area.

#### 2. Digging and pcc

The foundation of the building is excavated according to the house plan. In this foundation trench, a layer of PCC (plain cement concrete) is laid in the dug-out portion before placing the reinforcement to the foundation.

#### 3. Foundation

The entire building rests on the foundation. This is the lowest part of the building which is in contact with the soil. The superstructure of a building starts from the soil and must be extremely strong to handle the load. The foundation reinforcement work is initiated after the PCC work.

#### 4. Plinth Beam and Slab

Plinth beam

After the foundation work is completed, the ground beam framework is started to be prepared and poured with concrete. Over the plinth beam, masonry work is undertaken. And the space between the foundation and the plinth beam is filled with soil.

#### 5. colunm (kolam)

The colunm is the part above the floor level of the building. The main part of the superstructure is a column and beam. The colunm slabs are built up to the level and the frame is designed for further construction.

Rcc frame structure

#### 6. Brick Masonry Work

Masonry work is started after the column and beam framework, with various materials for building construction such as bricks, concrete blocks, fly ash bricks, etc. Masonry is done using cement and sand mixtures. It is a mixture of cement and sand. During this, blocks for doors and windows are kept carefully during masonry work and according to the house plan.

#### 7. Lintel Level on Door Window

On this, lintels are made on the door and window to strengthen the masonry work. This is followed by further masonry work.

#### 8. Floor slab or roof construction

Then the framework is started to construct the slab on the column and beam. Above the slab framework, the slab reinforcement is placed according to the rcc drawing.

#### 9 Electrical and Plumbin.g

As we know, buildings are constructed in a clean manner with no part of the electricity and pipeline visible. They are installed in walls and slabs in such a way that they do not appear outside and. The electrical point and the end of the pipe are left outside so that they can be terminated later with electrical fittings and faucet.

#### 10. Exterior Finish (Plaster)

Once this work is completed, the external plaster work is started. Waterproofing is also done to prevent increased moisture in the wall. The look of the exterior is created with the help of house front elevation design.

#### 11. Roofing

Above the slab, waterproofing is done to prevent any leakage in the slab. Typically, tiling is used to prevent slabs from leaking water.

#### 12. Interior Finishing

The interior walls are plastered and tiles or stones are used on the floor. Later, the walls are painted. 3d floor plan could help you in that

#### 13. wood and fixture fittings

By following the above step, almost the construction work is completed and then the furniture work is started. Beside, electrical fittings, switchboards, and tap fittings are also complete in bathrooms and kitchens.

#### भवन निर्माण प्रक्रिया (step by step )

किसी भी प्रकार के निर्माण के लिए भवन निर्माण कदम में निम्नलिखित शामिल हैं।

#### 1. जमीन तैयार करना या समतल करना:

काम शुरू होने से पहले निर्माण स्थल को साफ किया जाना चाहिए। इस कार्य में पेड़ों, मलबे और समतल भूमि क्षेत्र की जड़ों को हटाना शामिल है।

#### 2. खुदाई और pcc

बिल्डिंग की नींव ड्राइंग  (house plan )के अनुसार खुदाई की जाती है। इस नींव की खाई में, नींव के लिए सुदृढीकरण को रखने से पहले पीसीसी (प्लेन सीमेंट कंक्रीट) की एक layer खोदे हुए हिस्से में बिछाई जाती है।

#### 3. फाउंडेशन

पूरी इमारत नींव पर टिकी होती हे  यह भवन का सबसे निचला हिस्सा है जो मिट्टी के संपर्क में रहता  हे । एक इमारत का  सुपरस्ट्रक्चर मिटटी से शुरू होता  है और लोड को संभालने के लिए बेहद मजबूत होना चाहिए। पीसीसी कार्य के बाद foundation reinforcement कार्य शुरू किया जाता है।

#### 4. प्लिंथ बीम और स्लैब

प्लिंथ बीम

नींव का काम पूरा होने के बाद, ग्राउंड बीम framework तैयार करना शुरू किया जाता है और कंक्रीट के साथ डाला जाता है। प्लिंथ बीम के ऊपर, चिनाई का काम शुरू किया जाता है। और नींव और प्लिंथ बीम के बीच का स्थान मिट्टी से भरा जाता हे ।

#### 5. colunm ( कोलम )

colunm भवन के तल के स्तर से ऊपर का भाग है। सुपरस्ट्रक्चर का मुख्य भागएक कॉलम और बीम है। colunm स्लैब स्तर तक बनाए जाते हैं और आगे के निर्माण के लिए फ्रेम तैयार किया गया है।

आरसीसी फ्रेम संरचना

#### 6. ईंट चिनाई काम

कॉलम और बीम फ्रेमवर्क के बाद  चिनाई का काम शुरू  किया जाता  है, भवन निर्माण के के लिए विभिन्न सामग्रियों जैसे ईंटों, कंक्रीट ब्लॉक, फ्लाई ऐश ईंटों आदि के साथ शुरू किया गया है। सीमेंट और रेत मिश्रण का उपयोग करके चिनाई का काम किया जाता है। यह सीमेंट और रेत का मिश्रण है। इस दौरान सावधानी से और house plan के अनुसार चिनाई के काम के दौरान दरवाजे और खिड़कियों के लिए block रखे जाते हैं।

#### 7. दरवाजे खिड़की पर लिंटेल लेवल

इस पर चिनाई के काम को मजबूत  करने के लिए दरवाजे और खिड़की पर लिंटेल का निर्माण किया जाता है। इसके बाद आगे चिनाई का काम किया जाता है।

#### 8. मंजिल स्लैब या छत निर्माण

फिर कोलम  और बीम पर स्लैब का निर्माण करने के लिए framework शुरू किया जाता है। स्लैब framework  के ऊपर, स्लैब reinforcement को rcc drawing के अनुसार रखा गया है।

#### 9. बिजली और नलसाजी

जैसा कि हम जानते हैं कि इमारतों का निर्माण एक साफ तरीके से  किया जाता है जिसमें बिजली और पाइपलाइन का कोई भाग  नहीं दिखता है। उन्हें दीवारों और स्लैबों में इस तरह से स्थापित किया जाता है कि वो बाहर ना दिखे  है और । electrical point और पाइप का छोर बाहर छोड़ा जाता हे  है कि बाद में उन्हें बिजली की फिटिंग और नलजुड़नार लगा समाप्त किया जा सकता है।

#### 10. बाहरी फिनिश (प्लास्टर )

एक बार यह काम पूरा हो जाने के बाद, बाहरी प्लास्टर का काम शुरू कर दिया जाता है। दीवार में बढ़ती नमी को रोकने के लिए वॉटरप्रूफिंग भी की जाती है। house front elevation design की मदद से exterior  का लुक बनाया जाता हे ।

#### 11. छत बनाना

स्लैब के ऊपर, स्लैब में किसी भी रिसाव को रोकने के लिए वॉटरप्रूफिंग की जाती है। आमतौर पर, टाइलिंग को स्लैब को पानी का रिसाव से रोकने के लिए काम में किया जाता है।

#### 12. आंतरिक परिष्करण

आंतरिक दीवारें पर प्लास्टर  किया जाता हैं और फर्श पर टाइल्स या स्टोन  का use किया जाता है। बाद में, दीवारों को कलर किया जाता हे ।

#### 13. लकड़ी और स्थिरता फिटिंग

उपरोक्त चरण का पालन करके, लगभग निर्माण कार्य पूरा हो गया है और उसके बाद फर्नीचर का काम शुरू किया गया है। बगल में, बिजली की फिटिंग, स्विचबोर्ड, और नल फिटिंग बाथरूम और रसोई में भी पूरी होती हैं।

## Construction Costs in India: An In-Depth Analysis

India’s construction industry has seen rapid growth in recent years, driven by government infrastructure projects, real estate development, and overall economic expansion. However, rising costs of construction have made building projects more expensive. This article provides an in-depth analysis of the key factors impacting construction costs in India.

### Key Highlights:

• Construction costs in India have been rising at a faster pace compared to many other countries. Cost escalation has been estimated to be around 5-6% per year.
• Key factors driving up costs include rising prices of raw materials like steel, cement and bricks, labor costs, compliance costs due to regulations, and land costs in urban areas.
• Raw material costs account for the largest share of construction expenses. Cement and steel prices are linked to global markets and have seen high volatility in recent years.
• Labor costs have also risen significantly, driven by increasing wages and a shortage of skilled workers. Migration of labor during the COVID-19 pandemic exacerbated the labor shortage.
• Compliance with regulations like GST and environmental rules adds to project timelines and costs. Obtaining permits and clearances remains challenging.
• High land prices in urban centers make projects expensive. Land costs can be as high as 25-30% of total project cost in cities like Mumbai.

## Trends in Key Construction Cost Components

### Raw Materials Costs

• Cement prices in India increased at a compound annual growth rate of 3.8% between 2011 and 2021. Prices rose sharply in 2022 due to high energy costs.
• Steel prices saw major volatility in last few years. After falling in 2019, prices recovered in 2021 and hit record highs in 2022.
• Other materials like bricks and aggregates have also seen high inflation recently. Sand prices have surged with rising cement and steel prices.

### Labor Costs

• Average wages of construction workers have risen at 8-10% per year over the last decade, faster than the consumer price inflation.
• Minimum wages are revised periodically by state governments. But implementation and compliance remain inconsistent.
• Skilled worker shortage has also led to wage increase. Exodus of migrant workers during COVID-19 led to labor shortage.

### Equipment and Mechanization

• Equipment and mechanization costs have risen in India. But adoption remains low compared to global averages.
• Rental rates of equipment like excavators and backhoes have increased. Lack of scale leads to inefficiencies.
• Investment in equipment is limited by contractor finances and small project sizes in India.

### Regulatory Compliance Costs

• Complex regulatory environment leads to significant compliance costs such as fees, paperwork and delays.
• Obtaining permits, environmental clearances, inspections and certification adds time and cost.
• GST implementation has improved tax compliance but added to working capital requirements.

### Land Costs

• Land acquisition costs are a major factor, especially in urban areas. Costs can range from 15-30% of total project cost.
• Land prices appreciated rapidly 2000-2015 period, but have moderated in recent years.
• Delays and disputes related to land acquisition leads to holding costs for projects.

## Why Construction Costs are Rising Faster in India

### Higher Inflationary Environment

• India has seen higher inflation compared to many other developing countries in last decade.
• Key inputs like cement, steel, labor and land have risen faster than the CPI inflation rate.

### Inefficient Construction Practices

• Low productivity, wastage of materials and lack of standards lead to cost overruns.
• Less mechanization and economies of scale in construction compared to China.

### Regulatory and Bureaucratic Hurdles

• Complex regulatory clearances increase compliance costs and project timelines.
• Bureaucratic delays related to land acquisition, permits and inspections.

### Funding Issues

• Developers face liquidity issues, limiting ability to bulk purchase materials and optimize costs.
• High interest rates in India impact construction financing and demand.

### Skill Shortage

• Shortage of skilled labor leads to higher wages and lower productivity/efficiency.
• Training programs have not kept pace with industry growth.

### Managing Rising Costs

The construction industry must find ways to manage rising costs through a combination of methods:

• Promoting mechanization and industrial construction techniques to improve productivity.
• Economies of scale by consolidation of contractors and forming joint ventures.
• Vendor development and bulk sourcing of materials at lower costs.
• Using newer construction methods like prefabrication and modular construction.
• Training programs to create a skilled workforce and improve efficiency.
• Project management techniques like design-to-cost to optimize designs.
• Technology adoption such as BIM and IoT for better design coordination and waste reduction.
• Partnering with government for infrastructure project execution and land sourcing.

The Indian construction sector holds immense potential fueled by rapid urbanization and the government’s infrastructure push. However, cost pressures pose a challenge. Companies that innovate on cost management and construction techniques will be well positioned to succeed. But clearly efforts are needed from all stakeholders – government, industry, contractors and developers – to put the sector on a sustainable cost trajectory.

## tips on how to calculate construction costs in India for each phase in terms of materials:

### Foundation and Substructure

• Calculate quantities (volume) of excavation, concrete, reinforcement steel, formwork, and backfilling required as per the structural design.
• Estimate cost per unit for materials, labor, and equipment required for activities like excavation, shoring, concrete, and backfilling.
• Factor in waste allowances (5-10%) for material quantities.

### Superstructure/Framing

• Calculate quantities of concrete, steel, formwork, and masonry blocks required for columns, beams, slabs, walls as per structural design.
• Estimate costs based on current market rates for each material including transportation costs.
• Include material wastage, scaffolding, and labor costs.
• Double check design completeness to avoid change orders.

### Finishing Works

• Estimate costs per sq ft/sq m for items like flooring, tiling, plastering, paint, doors/windows, MEP works.
• Break up by material, labor, wastage, overhead, taxes and profits.
• Validate rates through historical data, supplier quotes, industry benchmarks.
• Factor in any imported/luxury items separately from standard materials.

### Site Development

• Calculate site clearing volumes, boundary wall lengths, road areas, drainage lengths, landscaping areas.
• Estimate unit costs based on market rates. Include material, equipment and labor costs.
• Validate through site visits, sampling if needed and quotes from sub-contractors.

The total construction cost estimate is the summation across the major activities. Careful measurement of quantities and validation of rates through data and sampling is key for accuracy. A 10-12% contingency can buffer against unforeseen costs.
