Let us consider a column as shown in the below-given drawing.

__Given data:__

Column size = 230mm. × 300mm.= 0.23m. × 0.30m.

Height of the column = 3m.

Before proceeding further, **Go through the article****ðŸ‘‡**

**ðŸ‘€. ****What will be the construction cost of a 3m. height RCC column?**

** 1. Column concreting:**

The labor rate of column concreting will be between INR 600/- to 1000/- per CUM.

Let us take the average rate of **INR 800/**- per CUM.

**The labor cost of column concreting**

= [total vol. of concrete in CUM × rate/CUM.]

=[0.207 CUM × 800/-]

= **INR 165.60/-**

**Note**: The vol. of concrete is taken from the above-linked article.

**2. Reinforcement:**

The labor rate of column reinforcement work will be between INR 9/- to 15/- per kg.

Let us take the average rate of **INR 12/-** per kg.

**The labor cost of column reinforcement**

= [total wt. of steel in kgs. × labor rate/kg.]

= [ 23.81 kg. × 12/-]

=** INR 285.72/-**

**Note**: The wt. of steel is taken from the above-linked article.

**3. Formwork:**

The labor rate of column shuttering work will be between INR 11/- to 17/- per sq ft.

Let us take the average rate of **INR 14/-** per sq ft.

or **INR 150/-** per sq m.

**The total area of shuttering work**

= [(area of width side) + (area of length side)]

= [( 2nos. × 0.23m. × 3m.) + (2nos. × 0.30m × 3m.)]

=[ (1.38sq m.) + ( 1.80 sq m.)]

= **3.18 sq m.**

**The labor cost of column formwork**

= [total area of formwork in sq m. × labor rate/sq m.]

= [ 3.18 sq m. × 150/-]

= **INR 477/-**

**The total labor cost of column**

= cost of [ concreting + reinforcement + formwork]

= [165.60/- + 285.72/- + 477/-]

= **INR 928.32/-**
