What will be the cost of 9″ brick wall masonry
Let us consider 9″ thick brick wall masonry as shown in the drawing for calculation purposes.
Given data:
Length of the brick wall = 16ft.
Height of the brick wall = 10ft.
The thickness of the brick wall = 9″ = 0.75ft.
The total volume of the brick wall masonry
= length × height × thickness
= 16ft. × 10ft. × 0.75ft.
= 120 cu ft.
The total area of brick wall
= length × height
=16ft. × 10ft.
= 160 sq ft.

before proceeding further.
No. of bricks required/ cu ft. of wall = 12.36 nos.
No. of Cement bags required/ cu ft of wall = 0.0353 bags
The volume of sand required/ cu ft. of wall = 0.2593 cu ft.
Note: The quantity of bricks, cement & sand per cu ft. is taken from the abovementioned article.
1. No. of bricks required
= [vol. of brick wall × bricks/ cu ft.]
= [120 cu ft. × 12.36 nos.]
= 1483.20nos.
2. No. of cement bags required
= [vol. of brick wall × cement / cu ft.]
= [120 cu ft. × 0.0353bags]
= 4.236 bags
3. The volume of sand required
= [vol. of brick wall × sand/ cu ft.]
= [120 cu ft. × 0.2593 cu ft.]
= 31.116 cu ft.

B. Labor calculation:
The labor rate per sq ft. of the brick masonry ranges from INR 12/ to 20/ depending upon the region.
Let us consider an average rate of INR 16/– per sq ft.
The total cost of labor for 9″ brick masonry
= total area of brick masonry in sq ft. × labor rate/ sq ft.
= 160 sq ft. × 16/
= INR 2,560/
Now, let us calculate the total cost of brick masonry in table format.
Sl. no.  Item.  Qty.  Rate.
in INR. 
Unit.  Cost
in INR. 
1.  Red brick  1483.20  8/  Nos.  11,865.60 
2.  Cement  4.236  380/  bag  1,609.68 
3.  Sand  31.116  60/  Cu ft.  1,866.96 
4.  Curing  Lumpsum  250.00  
5.  Miscellaneous  Lumpsum  200.00  
6.  The material cost =  15,792.24  
7.  Add 5% wastage =  789.61  
8.  Total material cost =  16,581.85  
9.  Labour cost =  2560.00  
10.  The total cost of 9″ brick masonry =  19,141.85 
Note: To get accurate results, insert your regional market rate of materials & labor, in the above table.
The cost of double ( 9″ ) brick wall masonry/sq ft.
= [total brick masonry cost ÷ total brick wall area]
= 19,141.85 ÷ 160
= INR 119.64 /sq ft.
The cost of double ( 9″ ) brick wall masonry/cu ft.
= [total brick masonry cost ÷ total vol. of the brick wall]
= 19,141.85 ÷ 120
= INR 159.52 /cu ft.
