Construction Cost Estimator in India
Construction cost comprises of 3 basic elements - Building Materials, Labour Charges and Contractors Margin.
Other than this, there are few more cost factors that need to be considered like - Approval or Permission Fee (This is usually a per sq ft charge by the municipality), Electricity (Electric Current Meter cost and connection charge), Water (Water meter and connection charge) and Sewage Connection charges (This needs to be paid to respective Govt Depts.), Bore well, Underground Sump, Compound wall and Gate etc. Also, Interior works like false ceiling and wood work as modular kitchen and wardrobes are not included in the construction cost. Basically, construction cost pertains only to the constructed area, wherever there is a roof - this area is calculated as constructed area.
Note: Super structure (The columns, beams, slab and stairs) are same for all the construction cost variants, the difference in the price is only because of finishing materials like - Bricks, Sand used for building walls and plastering, electrical cabling and fixtures like plates, switches, sockets and dimmers, plumbing fixtures like WC's, Wash Basins, Taps, Hot & Cold Mixers, Flooring for the home, bathroom tiles, kitchen platform stone, doors and windows, paint, railings etc.

Approval Fees Or Cost
Approval cost is the second expense in construction process, just after the planning and design fee. Usually, a per square feet price is charged by government body like municipality to give approval for construction based on the prescribed rules.
The approval procedure involves to submit documents like sale deed, proposed construction plan made as per sanctioning authority guidelines along with the official fee, it also takes significant time to get the approval. Our experts can get this tedious task done with ease by their experience in the field.

Transport & Handling
Construction materials are usually brought from far away distances or are manufactured elsewhere, hence need to be transported to the site or the place where they are required for the construction project. Also, construction materials are bulky and heavy hence costs more for transportation
Besides this, all of those construction materials are to be lifted to desired places, hence handling charges are incurred which are labour charges for lifting and placing those materials for the work to happen.
This cost can differ in different locations.
Labour cost or Workers charges is the second biggest cost factor of any construction project.
Right from the excavation to the final painting and cleaning of the site before handover to clients, every construction activity is highly labour intensive and consumes lots of man hours to complete.
Tentatively, combined labour charges of all the works involved in a construction project contributes almost 35 to 40 percent of the total construction cost for any home building project.
