Factors which impact the construction cost of a home
Finding the construction cost for a home is not an easy task. It includes a lot of minute considerations and calculations. Some of the factors on which the construction cost calculations of your home will depend on are given below. You can also use our construction cost calculator to find the average cost of construction for your home in NCR.
1. Total Built Up Area
The construction cost calculations will depend on the Covered Area, Half Covered Area, Basement and Open Area. The summation of these areas forms the total built-up area.
Covered Area: It includes rooms, lift lobby, toilet, guard room, staircase, toilets, underground water tank, rainwater harvesting pit, etc.
Half Covered Area: It includes balcony area, sunken courtyard, area with slab but not enclosed by wall like car parking area, etc.
Basement: It Includes retaining wall and staircase, lift shaft, lift lobby.
Open Area: It includes area of shaft/courtyard on each floor, area which is open to sky including the terrace, non-load bearing chajja area on each floor, etc.
All these areas further depend on the FAR Consumption. Some families consume the full FAR of the plot and build the maximum number of floors on their plot, others might just want to build the number of floors in which their family can live comfortably. Make sure to find all the above-mentioned areas for your home and use that value in Prithu’s construction cost calculator.
2. Specifications of Interior and Exterior Finishing
The construction cost calculations of a home also largely depend on the specifications which a family chooses for their home according to their taste and requirements. This includes the kind of kitchen the family might opt for (Modular or Normal), the kind of flooring they like (Italian Marble or Ceramic Tiles), the quality of bathroom fittings, whether they like stone cladding on the facade or extensive grillwork, etc. Prithu’s construction cost calculator finds the construction cost based on fantastic specifications within the price range.
