Assume that machineries required for it are your own.

I) take out the excavation plan

2)check mainly the levels through contour survey

3)add extra 1.5 mtr alround to have the working space.

4)devide the depth of excavation to have the offset projection of 600mm for every 1.6 mtrs

5) Engage the type of the excavating machine for excavation

6)calculate the efficiency of the machine interms of qty excavated against time

7)list out the per day consumption of consumables of the machine.

8)list out the man power consumption of the machine,

9) Now you have the cost required for the consumables and manpower per day.(8 hrs)

10)find out the hiring charges for the machine without item no.7 and 8.

11)cost/unit=9+10/6

Mr Naimish,The objective in developing rate analysis should be to arrive at a figure that, as nearly as possible, represents the cost of the work done under the operating conditions encountered and the accounting system in use.

In the present scenario,you need to work out operating cost.though you can not exclude expenses chargable to machine.ie, cost of machine,capital recovery factor.Interest to capital,life cycle of machine,expenditure on IOH,POH and expenditure on annual machine maintenance and of course, labour/08 hrs. This apart, you must ascertain the estimated quntum of work. Aggregating total expenditure and devide by the approximate quantity to be excavated will lead you estimated  rate per cubic meter. 

Hope, it will help you to brush up your knowledge.

Excavation in Soil using Mechanical means of construction

 

  1. Calculation of Quantity – Requires Excavation Plan, provisions as per IS 1200,Use Average end area Method or Grid square Method, Need contour plan of NGL
  2. Rate consists of (1) Labour (2) Machinery (3) Material (4) )Overheads and Profit

 

Before starting rate analysis, Fix & finalise  – Labour, Material, Machinery based on Method of Excavation, Dewatering provisions, shoring and bracing provisions, if required.

 Rate Analysis: (Mechanical Means in Normal Soil): A case

 Step_1 : Assume a out put app. 360 m3

Step-2: Take Manpower Factors i.e. Labour & Supervisor (Mechanical excavation, a supervisor supervises 5000 m3 / day, labour 200 m3/day) and Current rates of Manpower.

Step-3: take per hour rates of Machinery with Fuel and maintenance (outsourcing) OR Work out the rates of machinery as capital purchase - Owning cost, Major/minor maintenance cost, Fuel, oil & Lubricants, Operators cost, depreciation.

Step-4: Work out / Fix efficiencies of Machineries- Hydraulic excavator 0.9 cum bucket capacity, Tipper 5.5 cum capacity etc.

Step-5 :Work out cost of Manpower +Material (Zero) +Machinery

Step-6: take provisions for Dewatering, shoring and bracing , as required.

Step-7 : Take Overhead Charges @ 6-10% ot total of Step-6

Step-8 : Add Profit etc. @ 10-12%

Step-9 Total it and divide by 360, you get Excavation rate / m3. 

Step-10: Disposal…………….later on if required.

 Note: For Rate Analysis, you do not require Quantity to be calculated only Method / Planning of Excavation.

 

Enjoy…………..

* Do the bore holes to know the soil strata to the required depth.

* Take the NGL's

* With the available soil strata depth at different grids, calculate the volume for that particular strata.

* Choose the machinary which is suitable to the particular strata and analyse it's effeciency.

take the level of top portion the excavated portion.

anlayse the uantity with rate.

calculate the machine efficency i.e no. of hours reuired to finish the job .it involve the deperication of mach. spare parts,men, and then compare it with your rate the try to get maximum profit and efficency.

I have read some answers above & most of them mentioned the general analysis but one major factor is not mentioned that the productive or the quantity that can be excavated will also depend of the site conditions i.e type of soil, very important the arrangements/ facilities for disposal of excavated material, as this will effect the productive of work & depends on the site conditions.

It differs for excavation above ground and in foundation. One has to add costs for benching while doing excavation above ground so also the costs of approaches.

1. CALCULATE THE QUANTITY OF EXCAVATION TO BE DONE

2. FINALISE THE EQUIPMENTS TO BE USED

3. CALCULATE THE PRODUCTIVITY OF EQUIPMENTS CONSIDERING THE CYCLE TIME

4. FIND OUT THE FUEL CONSUMPTION AND SPARES NORMS

5. CALCULATE THE TOTAL WORKING HRS REQUIRED AS PER PRODUCTIVITY

6. CALCULATE THE MANPWER COST PER HR

7. FIND OUT THE OWNING COST OF EQUIPMENT AND CALCULATE THE DEPRECIATION AMOUNT PER YEAR.

8. TOTAL COST / QUANTITY = COST/CUM
