  • Hamza on February 1, 2021

    Assalamoalaikum. I am going to construct a house in sialkot and want some information about labour rate. I have contacted many contractors and meet them but i am still confuse about labour cost.. i have seen your videos and when you talk about a 10 marla in square feets it is almost 3400 square feets. And if labour cost for grey structure is 350 per square feet.. it become 924,800.. i am confused that this 3400 square feet include 1st only or 2nd floor and mumty as well? If it is saperate for both floors. Which become almost 20 lacks.

    • Mohsin Munir on February 1, 2021

      Hamza, 3400 sqft includes ground floor, first floor and small room at top floor known as mumtee. You have to multiply labor rate with 3400 figure only thats it.

  • Kamran Munir on May 13, 2020

    sir, i had a 5 marla 30×40 plot in Bahria town phase 8 Rawalpindi. after 15 feet drilling we found that this area is filled maybe till 40 feet and we stop drilling due to high construction cost and start thinking to sale the plot,but my willing to construct the plot. in this case what should i do? how much construction cost it will increase? if i go with basement and pillar structure how much it will cost per square feet. or any other recommendation.
    kindly guide me on this.
    many thanks.

    • Mohsin Munir on May 13, 2020

      If you say land fill is till 40ft, then there is no choice other than concrete piles (as per your soil engineer recommendations). It will increase your cost significantly since you may require special auger machinery for piles instead of tripod. In my opinion for a 30×40 plot, concrete piles upto 40 ft depth and 15-20 total quantity of piles, only pile cost will be around 10 lacs. Then you will have to make a raft and then retaining walls. Better if you go for a basement. But piles are must.

      Our Islamabad team once faced exactly same kind of situation back in 2017-2018. You can get in touch for free consultation & guidance through whatsap at 0092 301 8494556 Mr Ahmad Bilal

  • Saqib farooq on October 20, 2018

    Hi Mohsin
    I am planning to construct a comercial plaza of 8 marla size 60*30 total area of 10027 sq feet. It includes basement plus 4 and a mumty in dha 2 Islamabad.what will be a good labour rate including complete Electrition plumber job with tiles finshed for a grey structure complete including septic tank and underground tank. What should be extra rate for top floor chips, para pitt rcc wall and a water tank.
    Also what cost I should keep in mind per square foot for above mentioned work in terms of average material
    Saqib dha2 Islamabad

    • Mohsin Munir on October 20, 2018

      Basement labor rate will be around 450 Rs/sqft without excavation and electrician plumber, upper floors around 300-325 Rs/sqft. Electrician and plumber around 20 rs/sqft each whereas tile installation is around 35 rs/sqft of surface area of tile.
      Overall cost depends upon various factors and can not be estimated without detailed drawings

      • Saqib farooq on October 23, 2018

        Thx Mohsin ur 10 marla house project is very good any chance of giving 1 example like that of comercial plaza of 8 marla? Or atleast cost of steel per sq foot for comercial. It’s showing 175 for house in your example given which I think is low for comercial. So just need an average steel req for basement and ground per square foot

        • Mohsin Munir on October 23, 2018

          Yes we do have a plan for costing of a commercial frame structure plaza. Will do it soon. However you can keep a figure of 4.5 to 5 kg steel per square foot for a commercial 8 marla plaza if reinforcement is done as per structural drawings.

          • Saqib farooq on October 23, 2018

    • Mohsin Munir on October 13, 2018

      Dear Yousaf,
      Rates mentioned in our blog are standard market rates, nowadays market is abnormal 🙂 a brick which was worth 9.5 Rs has gone upto 11.5 to 12 Rs. However this situation is temporary due to ongoing tussle between govt and brick kiln owners. Once situation returns to normal, prices should come down to original prices!

    When you start a construction of luxury home then you check the material of construction company prided to you for a home because some times the material of your home has a low quality and given a complete plan of your home from the construction company with the complete calculations and time frame ,other wise your project may be delay due to the UN plan of your construction company and with the passage of time cost of material will be increase so in this case you may be loose due the delay of home construction .

    • Mohsin Munir on October 1, 2018

      Thanks for appreciating Inayat shb.

  • Salaar on September 27, 2018

    Excellent job done in creating and then also maintaining a useful site like tht.
    In this business mostly ppl get ripped off their hard earned money and exploited due the lack of knowledge and understanding of how things work around here.
    Wud have loved to have a comprehensive site like abt Pakistan real estate and building related information but glad that at least this site gives an oversight of most common issues and updated rates involved in construction process.

    • Mohsin Munir on September 27, 2018

      Thanks Salar for appreciating! Appreciations are always encouraging. Since you have referred to gharexpert website, any suggestions where we can improve site experience will be more than welcome!

  • Shehzad Chaudhary on September 6, 2018

    Assalamoalikum. I want to know that in grey structure labor rate contract, Floor tiles or marble work is included or not?
    and according to you islamabad labor rates are 300/sq.ft. in this rate marble or tile fixing included?
    and septic tank and underground water tank included?

    • Mohsin Munir on September 6, 2018

      Dear Shehzad Chaudhry,
      We have clearly mentioned that these are prevailing market approximate rates. While negotiating price with your contractor, you can discuss if the rate quoted to you includes these services or not. For instance current Isb market labor contract rate, most of the professional contractors will not include marble and tile fixing in this rate of 300. It will only include grey works. Same goes for septic tank and underground water tank, some will charge extra and some might include in same rate during bargain.

  • Shehzad Chaudhary on August 16, 2018

  • Atif Khan on August 6, 2018

    What if my first floor plan exceeds 75% limit of ground floor covered area? Would tey allow breach of by law of 200 sqf and how much in fine please?

    • Mohsin Munir on August 6, 2018

      For which society are you talking about?

      • Atif Khan on August 7, 2018

        I am building a one kanal house with full basement in DHA phase 6 Lahore. My ground floor built covered area inc porch is 2800 sqf. What if my first floor plan exceeds 75% limit of ground floor covered area? Would they allow breach of by law of 200 sqf and how much in fine please? Do you know the process please? Thanks

        • Mohsin Munir on August 7, 2018

          No it is not allowed and there will be fine that you will have to pay at the time of completion. For 200 sqft fine can be upto 2 to 2.5 lacs. However it will be better to consult information desk of main phase 6 head office as the per square foot fine rate figures keep on changing.

          • Atif Khan on August 7, 2018

            Thanks Munir, that is very helpful. I am willing to pay the fine, What I don not want is that they demand demolition of excess covered area, the covered area would breach by 200 sqft. Also if part of teh building is double height then would they count that area twice? Thanks

          • Mohsin Munir on August 7, 2018

            Yes twice.

          • Atif Khan on August 7, 2018

            Thanks, would they just demand penalty payment for breached area of 200 sqft or is there limit by which you can go over the permissible covered area?

          • Mohsin Munir on August 7, 2018

            Yes there are limits beyond which only demolition will be the solution.

          • Atif Khan on August 7, 2018

            Do DHA Lahore office have a list of registered or approved builders that they can provide me for construction of my house in DHA Lahore?

          • Mohsin Munir on August 7, 2018

            No there is no such list for builders, architects registered list is available.

          • Atif Khan on August 7, 2018

            Lahore builders are awful with broken promises, delay completion, excess payment demands and poor quality work. Where can you get help to make sure you protect yourself and have a good relationship? Someone suggested that I should ask for a post dated cheque and if they do not deliver against the contract details, I should invoke the cheque. Do you have any suggestions please?

          • Mohsin Munir on August 7, 2018
