  • Chennai Estimation of Construction Costs

    Hi,

    I am planning to construct(G+1) 1100 sqft at East Tambaram. I had a discussion with one builder and got the following details
    Construction cost - 1100 per sqft - All normal stuff included here... Vertified tiles (Rs. 40) Main door - teak palak, remaining window Padak etc)I am okay with these stuff however he said for the follwoing things i have to pay additional cost.
    ------------------------------------------------------------
    Sump - 6000 Ltrs - Rs. 78,000 (all concrete)
    Septic tank 6000 Ltrs - Rs. 60,000 (Lorry capacity is 6000 ltrs)
    Overhead Tank 3000 Ltrs - Rs. 30,000
    Compound Wall (for 1210 sqft) - Rs. 1,60,000
    Bore - Rs. 45,000 (Suguna motors)
    EB Charges - Rs. 50,000(3 Phase connection including bribe)
    Building Plan & Approval - Rs. 1,00,000 (including Bribe)
    -------------------------------------------------------------
    Kindly let me know your thought on the above cost.

    For constructing 1100 sqft in 1210 sqft land this builder is asking Rs.16,00,000.
    Please share more light on this.

    Regards,
    Kamesh

    1100/sft is a decent and market rate for good quality construction - with finishes what you mentioned.

    The building plan approval and EB seems to be way high. Cost of building plan will be around Rs.28-30,000 with Rs.10000 as under the table fee.

    EB should not cost more than Rs.30000

    C.Wall brick - Rs.800 per running feet 7 ft height from ground.
    Sump - Rs.6-7 per Ltr capacity
    Septik Tank - do -

          Cost of Building approval

          For DTCP building plan approval:

          Land cost per sq.ft is Rs.2/-
          For Built area per sq.ft is Rs. 5/-

          Total is land cost + Building cost

            Does the Construction cost (1100 per sqft) includes Bore...or we have to pay additional cost for that? Please clarify.

              In simple terms 1100/sqft is for the building only. Anything outside, i.e. c.wall/gate/eb/bore, s.tank. etc. will be additional - that's how normally contractors quote. If elevation is intricate they charge addl as well.
