hi.. could you please explain the conversion of cubic meter into square meter for the coefficient value while working in a project cost estimate?


hello i am a trainee at a contracting firm and i want to understand assigning the coefficients for materials and labor in a project cost estimate table.


The coefficient value changes form project to project. We have arrived at coefficient factors of materials required for a low rise construction.

Here is an infographic depicting the same.

Cement, Steel, Aggregate, Sand and other materials required for a 1000 Sqft House Construction

The coefficient values for other structures (like high rise etc.,) have to be derived by dividing the total volume of work by the builtup area or construction area.

Hope this solves your query.
