 Brickworks is an important part of construction and

modern building practice. Usually brick wall is built

totally on site. More workers and materials need in
completing the brick wall on site.
 In calculation, brick work shall be measured in square
metre and stating the thickness of the wall, type of
brick, type of bond and composition and proportion of
mortar. The unit price per square metre of brick wall is
calculated based on the following:
 Materials cost which is brick and mortar. Also brick
reinforcement (normally for half brick wall)
 Labour cost
 Standard brick size – 215 mm length x 102.5 mm width x
65 mm thick
 Brick is bonding with mortar
 There are two type of brick :
• Clay brick
• Cement brick
 Calculation of quantities of brick for 1 m2 half brick wall :
No. of brick/m2 wall = 1000 mm x 1000 mm = 59.26
= 60no.
225 mm x 75 mm
(+) 5 % wastage = 3 no.
Total = 63 no.
Description Mortar (m3) Number of brick
(No.)

½ Brick wall 0.025 63

1 Brick wall 0.050 125
1 ½ Brick wall 0.075 188
BRICK REINFORCEMENT
 The composite material of mortar is cement,
fine aggregate (sand) and water.
 Mortar proportion of cement and sand (1:3),
(1:4) and (1:6)
 Some additive such as lime is use as a retarded
agent.
 Mortar proportion of cement, lime and sand is
1:1: 6
 Shrinkage, Wastage and Consolidation for
mortar – 33.33% or 1/3 of materials shall be

Assumption :
Common brick cost - RM0.24/No.
Brick Reinforcement - 3.50 m/m2 brick wall ; RM0.60/m
Labour output :
Bricklayer - 1.00 h/m2
Worker - 0.35 h/m2
Profit & overhead cost- 15 %
a. Material cost
Brick = 63 nos. x RM0.24 RM 15.12
Mortar = 0.025 m3 x RM112.33 RM 2.81
Brick reinforcement =
3.50 m x RM0.60 RM 2.10 RM 20.03
b. Labour cost
Bricklayer = 1.00 hr x RM 60.00 RM 7.50

Data:
 Cement cost = RM12.50/bag
 Sand cost = RM45/m3
 Labour wages = RM 40/day
 Labour output for mixing mortar = 2 hours/m3
 Common brick cost - RM0.24/No.

Labour output :
 Bricklayer - 2.50 h/m2 ; RM70 / day
 Worker - 0.45 h/m2
 Profit & overhead cost - 15 %
