These thumbrules vary from project to project.first it depends on you that how you calculate.you have to measure drawing area, check quantity of steel or concrete and then you can get the answer. if u go by thumbrule it will mislead you.or you can instruct site engineers about the consumption of the materials of a particular structure for at least six month so that you can calculate the ratio and productivity .

Some of the thumb rules given here by various experts seem to vary widely, understandably because every building has its own type of foundation and a unique geometry, design parameters etc. In case of residential buildings, I have consistently found that steel consumption is over all around 4.5 ~ 4.75 kg per sqft of construction area and and 100~ 110 kg per cum of concrete consumed.

For residential building cement will be 0.4 Kg per sq.f. & steel will be 4.5 Kg per sqf. For Shuttering ply it will be 10 sq.m. per cum of concrete.

Dear All,

According to me, Steel & concrete depends on 

1)  Configuration of the structure like Basements if any, + Ground + no of stories above ground floor.

2) Functional use of structure like residential, commercial, rehab building.

3) Shape of structure like regular shape, curved, with lots of offsets, etc....
