## No of bricks required in India

Table of Contents

ToggleAccurate estimation of bricks is pivotal in house construction in India and plays major role in ** construction cost** . Recognizing brick types like Modular and Conventional, with dimensions such as 230mm x 110mm x 75mm, is foundational. For a standard 4″ brick wall, the thumb rule suggests 55 bricks per square meter, factoring in a 10% wastage allowance. Opting for a robust 9″ double-layer wall doubles the requirement to 110 bricks per square meter, ensuring structural integrity. This straightforward rule simplifies planning, aiding homeowners and builders in precise brick calculations for successful

## How many Bricks Required per 1 square feet

1brick areas is 32 sq inch,

so **no of bricks required for 1 square feet for 4.5 inch wall is 144/32inch = 4.5 bricks **

**no of bricks required for 1 square feet**.

__for 9inch wall__is 9-10 bricks### How Many bricks required per 1 cft ?

## 4.5 inch Brick wall calculator

### number of bricks per square meter

`Size: 230mm x 110mm x 75mm (0.230×0.110×0.075 m)`

Mortar Thickness: 10 to 15mm (0.01m)

By adding the thickness of the mortar

Length of Bricks in mm (L) = 230mm + 10mm = 240mm – 0.240m

Width of Bricks in mm (W) = 110mm + 10mm = 120mm – 0.110

`Thickness of Bricks in meter (T) =75 mm + 10mm = 85mm - 0.085m`

Length (L): 240mm – 0.240m`Width (W): 120mm - 0.120m`

Thickness (T): 85mm - 0.085m

Area of Each Brick: 0.0204 sqm

No. of bricks in 1 square meter: 50 bricks

Consider 10 % as brick wastage

**Number of bricks per square meter for 4.5 inch wall = 50 + 5 = 55nos/sqm **

### 9inch Brick Wall or Double Layer

`No. of bricks in 1 square meter for 4.5inch wall: 55`

No. of bricks in 1 square meter for ** 9inch** wall: 110 (twice the thickness of 4.5inch wall)

## Application of Thumb Rule

Given: 4.5inch **brick wall** size = 3m x 3m

No. of bricks in 4.5inch wall of 9m2: 495 bricks

*The thumb rule simplifies brick estimation, providing a quick way to calculate the number of bricks per square meter for different wall types.*

** List of how many bricks required for construction**

no of bricks (area/ volume ) | Bricks per Unit | Bricks required for wall 4.5 inch wall | Bricks required for 9inch Wall |
---|---|---|---|

100 Square Feet | 4.5 to 5 bricks/sq ft | 450 to 500 bricks | 900 to 1000 bricks |

500 Square Feet | 4.5 to 5 bricks/sq ft | 2250 to 2500 bricks | 4500 to 5000 bricks |

1000 Square Feet | 4.5 to 5 bricks/sq ft | 4500 to 5000 bricks | 9000 to 10000 bricks |

10 Square Meters | 55 bricks/sq m | 550 bricks | 1100 bricks |

20 Square Meters | 55 bricks/sq m | 1100 bricks | 2200 bricks |

10 Cubic Feet | 13.5 bricks/cft | 135 bricks | 270 bricks |

20 Cubic Feet | 13.5 bricks/cft | 270 bricks | 540 bricks |

A 9″ brick wall requires twice the number of bricks compared to a 4″ wall. The thumb rule suggests 110 bricks per square meter for a 9″ wall.

4.5 to 5 bricks per square foot

55 bricks are required for 1 square meter

Size of the brick = 9 inch×4.5 inch×3 inch

Size of the brick with mortar = 9.08 inch×4.58 inch×3.08 inch

, which is approximately 128 cubic

Volume of 1 cft = 1ftx1ft x1ft

= 12inx 12in x 12in = 1728 cubic inches

Volume of the brick with motor= L X B X H

Now, let’s convert cubic inches to cubic feet:

no of bricks = Volume in 1 cft / volume of 1 brick with motor

no of bricks =1728/128

**Number of bricks for 1 cft = 13.5 bricks**

Total no of bricks required for 4.5 inch

For a square feet you will be required 4.5 to 5 bricks for a 4inch wall.

For a 9 inch wall 900-1000 bricks are required to construct 100 square-feet wall
