# RATE ANALYSIS OF PLASTERING

#### Step 1:- Assumptions

Area of Plaster = 100 m²

Thickness of plaster = 15 mm =0.015 m

Mix Ratio → 1:4

#### Step 2:- Volume of Plaster

∵Volume of plaster = Area of plaster x Thickness of plaster

Volume of plaster = 100 x 0.015=1.5m³

Add 20% extra Quantity for Filling of joints, Depressions & Wastage

∴Volume of plaster = 1.5 + [ (20×1.5) /100 ] =1.5 + 0.30 =1.80m³

Dry volume of plaster = Wet volume x 1.33

(i.e., Addition of bulk moisture 33%)

Dry Volume = 1.80m³ x 1.33 = 2.394 m³

#### Step 3:- Quantity of Cement

Quantity of Cement = (Dry Volume of plaster x Cement ratio) / (Sum of the ratio)

Quantity of cement = (2.394 x 1) /(1+4)= 0.4788 m³

∵Density of Cement = 1440kg/m³

Weight of Cement = 1440 x 0.4788 = 689.472 Kg

∵ 1 bag of cement contains 50 kg of cement

Number of bags = 689.472 Kg/50kg = 13.78 No’s

#### Step 4:- Quantity of Sand

∵ Cement : Sand :: 1:4

Quantity of Sand = Quantity of Cement x 4

∴ Quantity of Sand = 0.4788 m³ x 4 = 1.9152 m³

∵ 1m³=35.3147 Cubic Feet (CFT)

Quantity of sand = 1.9152 x 35.3147 = 67.634 CFT

#### Step 5:- Cost calculation

We have take labour constant from any of the country standard

I am taking labour constant as per INDIAN STANDARD 7272: PART1  #### Summary:-

Cost of material = Rs. 7408.52

Cost of labours = Rs. 21400

Sum of labour & material cost= Rs. 28808.52

1.Water charge @ 1.5% = (1.5/100)x 28808.52 = Rs. 432.127

2.Contractor’s profit @10 % = (10/100)x 28808.52 = Rs. 2880.852

Total cost = 28808.52 + 432.127 +2880.852= Rs. 32121.49
