Is there a way I can know the number of bags of cement I will need for my DPC of my 2 bedroom and 4 units of mini flat?
Am sorry, I don’t have the plan with me.
I will appreciate opinion on conjectural figures.
To calculate, one needs more information:
@mank1234 Thank you for your response.
I want to use 3 inches for the thickness
The 2 bedroom is 39 by 23 ft (feet)
The mini flats is 67 by 31 ft (feet)
I look forward to getting your reply.
For the 2 Bedroom, you’ll require 36 bags of cement if you’re doing M15 1:2:4 Grade
For the mini flats, you’ll require 89 bags of cement if you do M15 1:2:4 Grade of Concrete
@brabus What does M15 mean? Pardon my ignorance.
Grade of concrete denotes its strength required for construction. For example, M30 grade signifies that compressive strength required for construction is 30MPa. The first letter in grade “M” is the mix and 30 is the required strength in MPa.
For your bungalow, you’ll be fine with M10 grade of concrete which means you’ll use lesser quantity of cement.
brabus Thanks sir
Please, could you suggest an appropriate fees that would be appropriate for labour and renting of the machine?
mansa where’s your location?
Ogun State. Igode( under sagamu)
I wish I know the place. I can send a team down and they’ll cast both foundation with 120k.
I’m in Sagamu and I have 2 mixers on ground here.
It can be connected via Adamo viz Ikorodu
mansa is it along imota road?
mansa how close is it to Ode Lemo road? My machines are in Ode Lemo.
I know those areas but I don’t know the name of the communities.
Sincerely, I am not sure of where Ode Lemo is. My Journey has always from Ikorodu to Adamo Bus stop, From There Bike to Igode.
mansa if the site is accessed from Ikorodu, the amount will be higher as we can’t move machine from sagamu to Ikorodu.
You should budget about 150k for the casting.
The site can be assessed from many areas. like Odogunyan,
brabus What I know is that Igode is in Sagamu.
mansa one of my crew members is telling me the place is not far from us.
We will do 120k but we will take 15k for transport 🙄
