Budget of the Grey Structure of a 1 Kanal House in Pakistan 

In the above figures, we tried to share each and every detail pertaining to cost of construction for a grey structure of 1 Kanal in Pakistan.  

You need the following building materials to construct the foundation of the grey structure house: rebar, bricks, cement, wiring, kassu, sand and gravel. In the grey structure, apart from these building materials, the installation of the main gate, septic tank construction and plumbing and wiring are also included. 

Bricks, Sand, Crush and Rori 

In creating the grey structure of the building, bricks are significant. It is necessary to know the quantity of building materials used to determine the correct calculation of the grey structure of a 1 Kanal building in Pakistan. So, when constructing a 1 Kanal unit, the first thing you need to decide is the number of bricks. At a rate of PKR 11.5 per brick, about 135,000 bricks will be used to construct the base of the building. PKR 1,552,500 will be the gross costs spent on bricks. 

Sand and gravel are both important elements of a house’s base. You will need about 2,100 cubic feet of Chenab sand, which would cost you PKR 73,500, for a house as large as 1 kanal. Ravi sand is much cheaper than Chenab sand and is thus used in larger amounts than Chenab sand. In 1 kanal house building, approximately 5,250 cubic feet of Ravi sand is used at a cost of PKR 20 per cubic feet. So, for Ravi sand, a sum of PKR 105,000 would be required. 

The roof of the house is built using Margalla gravel. At the rate of PKR 70, about 2,200 cubic feet of Margalla gravel is used, bringing the total cost to PKR 165,000. At the rate of PKR 65, you will need 1,200 cubic feet of Sargodha crush to create the floor of the building. It will need about PKR 78,000 Sargodha gravel. In the creation of the grey structure of a 1 Kanal building, about PKR 65,000 worth of Rori is used. 

Cost of Bricks, Sand, Crush and Rori = PKR 2,039,000 

Cement, Kassu And Rebar 

Cement helps build the house’s base. 

Kassu is basically is a mixture of sand and mitti which is another significant construction material that you will need to include in your construction plan. The base of a 1 kanal house is used to construct approximately PKR 200,000 worth of Kassu. At the rate of PKR 134/kg, at least 9 tonnes or 9000 kg of 60-grade rebar is used, taking the total to PKR 1,206,000. Without using cement, no house can be built. At the rate of PKR 520, about 1,600 bags of cement will be needed. The overall cost of cement used for the building of a 1 Kanal house will therefore be PKR 832,000. 

Cement helps strengthen the foundation of your house. 

A mixture of sand and mitti, Kassu is yet another important building material you’ll need to include in your construction plan. Around PKR 200,000 worth of Kassu is used to build the foundation of a 1 kanal house. At least 9 ton or 9000 kg of 60 grade rebar is used at the rate of PKR 125/kg which brings the total to PKR 1,125,000. No house can be constructed without using cement. Around 1,600 bags of cement will be required at the rate of PKR 520. So, the total cost on cement used to construct a 1 kanal house would be PKR 832,000. 

Cost of Cement, Kassu and Rebar = PKR 2,238,000 

Labour Cost 

Typically, labourers charge per square foot. The rates are somewhere about PKR 395 per sq. when constructing a 1-channel home. Just ft. So, for a 5,950 sq. double-unit house with a covered area. The overall cost of labour will be PKR 2,350,250. 

Cost of Labour = PKR 2,320,500 

Plumbing and Wiring 

Plumbing and wiring is a very complex activity that you need to appoint a specialist or an expert who can do the work for you. Keep a budget of 210,000 PKR for house plumbing. The house’s internal wiring will cost you PKR 200,000. 

Cost of Plumbing & Wiring = PKR 410,000 

Grills, Gate And Chougat Steel 

In the construction of the grey structure of a 1 Kanal building, steel is of greatest importance. To construct the grey structure of a 1 Kanall building, around PKR 94,500 would be needed. Around PKR 80,000 would be needed to construct the house’s main gate. Safety grills are equally critical for ensuring safety in your home. These bars will cost you approximately 133,000 PKR. 

Cost of Grills, Gate and Chougat Steel = PKR 307,000 

Miscellaneous Costs 

The very base of your house can be eaten up by termites. A decent quality chemical repellent, however, sprayed at the right time will assist in destroying termites. You must maintain a budget of PKR 45,000 for termite spray. A septic tank is also included in the grey structure and in PKR 25,000 it can be assembled. 

Cost of miscellaneous items = PKR 70,000 

Total Cost of building the grey structure = 7,414,250  

The overall cost of building the grey structure of a 1-channel house will therefore be PKR 7,414,250. When the strategy is formulated and you can see your house’s framework, to complete the building process, you now need to concentrate on the finishing tasks. 

Meanwhile as per the estimates the overall finishing cost of a 1 Kanal house you will have to incur is PKR. 6,075,625. 

This concludes the total expense for the finishing of a 1 Kanal house.  

While merging the grey structure expense and finishing costs we will get the estimated final budget for a 1 Kanal house.  

Total construction cost of a 1 Kanal house is PKR 7,414,520 + total finishing cost of a 1 Kanal house is PKR 6,75,626 = PKR 13,490,145. 

The PKR 13,490,145 would be the complete construction cost of a 1 Kanal house.  

Please Note: These are all the estimated prices based on the information provided by market sources. The estimated prices may fluctuate and vary from region to region and due to other factors.
