Spreadsheet for rate analysis in RCC
This construction article provides brief explanation on how to make rate analysis for Reinforced Concrete (RCC) work.
To perform rate analysis, the initial step will be calculating the labour, materials, equipments and miscellaneous items toward specific quantity of reinforced concrete.
The next step should be finding out the element of structure for which the RCC rate analysis is applicable, because the quantity of reinforcement steel fluctuates with slabs, beams, columns, foundation, RCC Roads etc., while the quantity of other materials like sand, coarse aggregate and cement remain unchanged with the similar mix design (mix proportion) of concrete.
Labour rates for reinforcement work modifies with type of structural element because the quantity of reinforcement steel modifies. The Quantity of materials like sand, cement and coarse aggregates fluctuate with mix design like M15 (1:2:4), M20 (1:1.5:3), M25, M30 etc.
Necessary data for RCC Rate Analysis:
- Computation of materials
- Bags of cement necessary
- Volume of Sand necessary
- Volume of Coarse Aggregate necessary
- Computation of Reinforced Steel
- Labour Requirement for 1m3 of RCC
- Equipments and sundries
- Contractor’s Profit
