## Long-Wall And Short-Wall Method

The long wall and short wall methods are used to estimate the qty of different work. In this method, the longer walls in the building (generally in 1 direction) are considered as long walls & measured from out to out and the shorter walls in the perpendicular direction to the long walls are considered as short walls and are measured from in- to-in for the particular layer of the work.

## Long Wall And Short Wall Method Of Estimation

The following is an example of the long wall and short wall method for estimation of 1 room as give below,

Length of the short wall into in = Centre to center length – Half breadth 1 side – Half breadth on another side.

Centre to center length of the long wall

= four + 0.45 + 0.45

=4.9m

Centre to center length of the short wall

= Three + 0.45+ 0.45

= 3.9 m

=4.9 + 0.90

= 5.8 m

3.9 + 0.9

4.8m

#### Long wall

First footing length = 4.9+0.6

= 5.5m

Second Footing length = 4.9 + 0.5

= 5.4m

Plinth wall length = 4.9 + 0.4

=5.3 m

#### Short Wall

First Footing length = 3.9 – 0.6

=3.3m

Second footing length = 3.9 – 0.5

=3.4m

Plinth wall = 3.9 – 0.4

= 3.5m

Long wall = 4.9 + 0.3

= 5.2m

Short Wall = 3.9 – 0.3

= 3.6m

### Important Notes;

1. The area of the ventilation is less than 0.5 sq m, therefore no deduction is made.
2. For Doors, Half the number of the faces is deducted.
3. For calculation of the internal plaster, inner doors have 2 faces and the external door has 1 inner face
4. For calculation of the internal plaster, windows have 1 internal face.
5. for windows, half the number of the faces is deducted.
