House Construction Cost in Pakistan

House Construction Cost in Pakistan

People prefer to live in self-built houses in Pakistan. Self-built housing is also considered as the best housing in Pakistan, as this helps people to build homes according to their requirements and affordability. People just buy plots in their preferred housing schemes in Pakistan and build own houses. Building own home is great, but one must know the construction cost. For cost estimation, you first need to know the total covered area to be constructed. Once you have calculated the covered area, house construction cost can be divided into two parts, grey structure cost and finishing cost.

Cost of Grey structure work

Construction of house structure is considered as grey work. So from foundation excavation to plastering of roofs & walls and preparation of flooring is the grey structure work. Cost of grey structure is in the range from 1350-1800 Pak Rupees per square foot as some structures cost less and some cost more.

Cost of Finishing work

Finishing work includes the marble & tile fixing, wood work, false ceiling work and painting. Cost of finishing work is in the range from 1150-2200 Pak Rupees per square foot. This depends on the quality of finishes you choose for your home. For example engineered doors cost less, whereas solid wood doors cost more.

Per square foot construction cost to build a house in Pakistan

Total construction cost to build a house is in the range from 2500-4000 PAK Rupees per square foot. This variation depends on the type of structure you want to build and finishes you choose for your home.

Factors that decrease or increase the house construction cost

1-Small covered areas cost more to build, whereas large covered areas cost less to build.

2-Material transportation also decreases or increases the construction cost of a house. Areas, where construction materials are not locally available cost more.

3-Site preparation and soil filling also increases the cost of construction, as some sites or plots need more preparation and soil filling.

4-Single storey houses cost more to build, whereas double storey houses cost less to build.

5-Simple structures cost less to build, whereas structures with lot of beams & lintels cost more to build.

NOTES:
  • Construction cost in Karachi, Lahore, Islamabad, Gwadar, Rawalpindi, Faisalabad, Multan, Peshawar, Gujranwala, Sialkot, Abbottabad, Bahawalpur, Quetta, Sargodha, Hyderabad Sindh, Sahiwal, Jhelum, Gujrat Pakistan, Sheikhupura, Kasur and other cities of Pakistan varies due to variation in construction material rates.

    Hello Ghar47,

    I have two 5 marla plots. I want to build both as investment point of view.

    Can you please confirm best cost for two 5 marla plots double story? and profit if I will have plan to sale it.

    Thanks,

    Adnan

      Two double storey 5 Marla houses will cost you approximately 75-80 LAC
      Now add the land price
      For example land price is 35 Lac for each plot
      So plot plots price plus construction cost is 150 LAC
      20% profit
      So you should sell each house for 90 LAC

      It will cost you 25-28 Lac to construct first floor plus one room on top.
      Grey structure will cost 17 LAC and finishing 8-10 Lac
      B category construction with finishes will cost you 2000 per sq ft as foundation is not built in FF, A category will cost you 2500 per sq ft

    I have a 50 x 90 plot in Gulberg Islamabad. The plot is in depression. I want to build 3 bedrooms with attached bath Drawing Dinning lounge and kitchen. I want to know the cost for ground floor only with decent finishing.
    Moreover what would be the difference in cost if I am to build a basement, as I mentioned the plot is already in depression (about 6 to 7 feet).
    Please tell the cost for Grey structure of basement plus Ground floor or only Ground floor with filling separately,
    And the average cost of grey structure of basement and ground floor separately for 50 x 90 plots.
    I wish to build up to the ground floor only with or without a basement. and will build the first floor on a later date.

    Thanks in advance

      Its up to you to build a basement or not.
      If you have limited budget, only ground floor construction is the best option. But if you have money you can build basement and ground floor both.
      Single storey 1 Kanal house will cost you approximately 80-90 LAC
      Double storey house will cost you 125 LAC for normal construction

        Then its cost will be 35-40 LAC
        The fact is that grey structure cost remains the same
        Which will be approximately 25 LAC
        Rest is the finishing
        You can complete finishing in 10-15 LAC depending on your budget and choice of finishing material

      It will cost you approximately 40 LAC to construct normal quality two storey 1700 sq ft house
      Ideally you should construct home on labor rate. You should provide the material and contractor will bring in his team to build your home.

      House construction will take 6-8 months ideally but due to gap it will take 10-12 months

    I need some advice. I have around 20 Lac available with me which is my complete life savings. I currently live in a rented place. Now with this money, I want to buy my own house. I got 2 options (I am from Karachi). First is to buy some small flat in city which is not enough for my family and the other option is to buy a 125 sq yard plot in Bahria Town Karachi which I will construct later. Which one would you advice. Also approx. how much will it cost if I construct a 125 sq yds plot there.

    Reply
    • Mahrab
      Its better to buy 125 sq yards plot as your saving will increase with the time and in future you can sell the plot to buy decent flat or can also construct your home.
      It will take at-least 20 LAC to construct single stotey house. Which you can construct in stages. Don’t waste time and just buy plot. Otherwise due to flat inflation you will loose buying power with your money.

      Best way to hire good architect in your area and first get drawing according to your plans
      Also consult with Sui Gad Society so that they have no objections
      or
      Architect should design houses in a way that it does not violates bylaws of Sui Gas Society Phase 2

    Good Day,

    I am planning to construct a house for my parents in a village.

    Idea is to construct a simple decent home.

    location: it is 10 KM Inside on GT Road GujarKhan, Rawalpindi.
    City/Village: Village
    Land type: Agricultural land
    Total Land: 16 Marla
    Construction Type: Simple, Single Story
    Bedrooms: 2 Standard size bedrooms
    Bathroom: 2 full bathrooms, but of basic type (no bathtubs)
    Kitchen: 1 , but of basic type
    Drawing: No
    Lounge/Sitting Area/Common hall: Yes
    Shade in front of rooms: Yes

    I am not sure about the total area of that should be covered ideally, but I would prefer to leave maximum space for Garden.

    this house will be used for staying a month on vacations so just want to keep it simple and straight.

    I am planning to construct in phases like building the grey structure, flooring and finalizing with other pending things.

    Can you help me with the phases I should divide my construction into and with the approx amount for each phase.

      Approximate covered area will be 1000 sq ft
      It will cost you 25 Lac including boundary wall
      First you should complete boundry wall
      In second phase you should complete the grey structure
      Finally you should complete the finishes

      In first phase you should just build the grey structure
      After that according to your budget you can complete finishing work

        covered area is length x width
        for bylaws you have to leave open space on one side front and back
        say you leave 5 feet open on three side
        its 25×45 = 1125 sq ft on one floor

    Our drawingroom is 14×19 and height of wall is 12ft .. can you tell me its calculation for plaster .. if its 14x19x12 = 3192 ..
    for example if we assume 15Rs SQFT plaster .. it will be like 3192 x 15 = Rs,47880 for just drawingroom inner plaster .. is it right ? or i am mistaken ?
    if this is right, it may even cross 2.5 – 3 lacs .. and we will need to provide cement and bajri i think ..
    please correct me

      Calculate each wall separate as 14×12=168 x 2 =336 sq ft for two walls and 19×12 =228 x2 = 456 area of two walls, so tota area will be 792 sq ft . your calculation was to find volume of room.

    Salam,

    can you give me an idea of cost for plaster on 240 yards single story house? 3 Bed, drawing, launch, 2 gali, wall height is 12′ etc .. i am trying to hire direct labour for plaster as contractors are demanding too much and i have to save as much as possible as i am constructing house alone with limited funds.

    Thanks

    • Zeeshan
      Cost of plastering is 25-30 per sq ft
      It less for walls but more for the roofs
      Best way is to hire 2 masons and 2 laborers for plastering work
      Complete works in steps
      Just hire labor and tell them about work and they will tell you to material they need
      This will help you to do work in steps according to your budget

            Room size = 14 x 9 and height is 12
            2 side walls 14 feet
            2 side walls 19 feet
            2 x 14 x 12 = 336 sq ft
            2 x 19 x 12 = 456 sq ft

            Total walls area = 792 sq ft
            Labor of wall plastering = 15 x 792 = Rs. 11,880/-

            For same room roof plastering
            14 x 19 = 266 sq ft
            Labor of roof plastering = Rs. 3,990/-

      At the moment we have just office in Lahore.
      1- CONSTRUCTION COST
      It will cost you approximately 55 Lac to build 7 Marla double storey house
      2- RATE LABOR
      Labor rate vary 275-350 per sq ft
      3- CONSTRUCTION RATE
      Construction rate vary 2500-4000. I personally prefer 2500 per sq ft rate as expensive finishes are useless for me due to fast trend changes.

      Reply
      • Thanks for your reply!!

        The 55Lac you quoted us base on 2500 per SQ FT or what rate?

        If build a house in 7 Marla double story what the total cover area because can’t cover full 7 Marla?

        Because we get quotation few other company as well, so we will decide after we get your best offer.

      You need reception lobby with sitting area
      Dinning hall
      Kitchen
      Store area
      Outdoor space
      Its better to have some building like hotel or flats so that you can use roof top and can save open area on ground.
      Cabins for tourists will take lot of space

        I’m still considering my options whether to go with tourist huts or a simple hotel building. Having said that there is a slight issue with the roof because there is a lot of snow.

        How much area do you think I should cover with the building (in case of a guest house/hotel), if I want to build around 16-20 rooms (including kitchen/dining hall/staff room etc).

        2- Do you think I should stick to one story for that many rooms or must get double story building (Looks/style etc)

        3- How much do you think it would cost to building 1 story and 2 story (given there would be latten instead of a roof on second floor).

        Any other suggestions would really be appreciated.

      It will cost you 50 Lac to build double storey house.
      It better to find contractor on site. Visit the houses under construction in near by your plot.
      So that you can meet the owner and ask about behavior of contractor.
      You should hire a contractor on labor rates.
      In this case contractor will provide the labor and you will provide the material.
      This way you can build affordable and good quality home.

  101. Hi gahr47 team,

    You people are doing amazing job by guiding people on construction issues.

    I am constructing double story 500 sq yd house (covered area approx 4900 sq ft) in Islamabad Sector B-17. I want your opinion on the following points:

    1. What is the standard size (width x height) for windows of Bed Rooms and Drawing Room that you recommend?

    2. Which windows are better and efficient? Single glazed or Double glazed?

    3. How much the aluminum windows cost for 1 kanal house (windows height at 7 ft).

    4. How much is the cost for marble flooring for 4900 sq ft covered area?

    Kind Regards

    Reply
    • Fawad
      1 Kanal / 500 sq yards house will cost you 1.25-1.5 Crore.
      There is no standard width of windows but wider windows are used now like 4′ sill level 7 feet top level and 7 feet wide
      Both windows are excellent
      If you want cooling and heating to remain in rooms then just use double glazed
      Aluminium windows have lot of variety and rates
      Just get prices from different sellers / suppliers
      never buy expensive or cheaper stuff , but of middle price
      Cost of flooring depend on the material you choose like tiles, marble etc.
      per sq foot cost of marble + fixing cost + finishing cost /polish or grinding

      First of all you should know that up to 3 storey house you don’t need beams and columns
      Secondly you should build your home on labor rates (you will provide the materials and contractor will do the construction working including labor force)
      Thirdly you have not less money you just need to utilize your capital in better way by working in stages
      First of all complete grey structure of single storey house
      Then what money you have left just select finishes accordingly.
      In shaa ALLAH every thing will be fine.

      In east facing house heat will be observed on back side of house
      In west facing house heat will be observed on front of home
      so it really doesn’t matter which direction your plot is
      what matters most is the design of house according to sun orientation

      House construction cost will cost you approximately 80 Lac Rupees

      In Punjab you should use bricks as bricks have strength
      In Sindh, Pindi, Islamabad you should use column and beam structures as bricks have no strength to bear load
      Normally houses should be built with bricks as house structure is not complex and also spans are short.
      But quality of bricks is very important
      Brick quality in Lahore, Faisalabad, Gujranwala is very high.
      Mughal buildings are built of Bricks.
      But you should go for columns and beams if quality of bricks is low
      To check quality of bricks
      break brick from center
      if it is solid it is load bearing
      if has sand or mud in center it is not load bearing

      Don’t worry about the strength of bricks in Pindi / Islamabad area as bricks are rubbish like sand with no strength. Bricks in Lahore and Gujranwala has history of 1000 years. Brick are red and even Badshahi Masjid Lahore structure is built of red bricks.
      Building / house with column structure; you can use low quality bricks as bricks are not bearing the load.

        Dear thank you for your prompt reply. Just few more queries.
        It seems like he is using low grade bricks after i inquired. The bricks are not in good shape as well many has broken edges. This seems like very soft and not strong strength wise. The house is being constructed in Abottabad. So i am worried about the earth quake issues. Column structure is there but still the walls should be strong.
        I can ask him to use the grade 1 bricks from now on, but i am worried about the bricks that he already used. it is around 3 feet high from the base right now. very initial stages.

        Q1. Will these low quality bricks bear the load of the double story 6500 sq feet covered area building for a 1 kanal house?
        Q2. Shall i ask him to remove all the bricks that he used and again redo the brick work?
        Q3. Or any other suggestion from your expertise?

        I apologize in advance for lengthy email but i am stressed and need technical guidance.

        Thank you and best wishes.

      Basements are more functional in larger houses like 1 kanal
      I have seen basements in 5 Marla houses which create much problems.
      Due to limited space, two stairs at one place (for basement and other for first floor) take much needed space.
      so basement in 5 Marla house is never recommended.

    I have a 1 kanal house. I want to add a room and bathroom on ground floor. The place where this will be built is the small lawn side [not the main lawn] near the boundary wall. So there are boundary walls on two sides and house wall one side. I don’t think new walls will be needed [except fourth wall] as they will squeeze the area but your expert opinion is required. Do we need to have foundations laid for this room?

    Further following is planned for room and bath;

    Simple room with cupboards as the only fixtures.
    Two windows one in room and the other in bathroom are needed.
    Floor tiles should be the most basic ones
    Bathroom to be basic one with or without vanity
    Two doors needed. One for bathroom and one for entrance into the house. Here I would like you to note that part of the wall of existing house will have to be dismantled for preparing area for door entry into the house.

    Please suggest what is cheapest way of having the above constructed. Your sincere advice and efforts in coming up with a plausible solution are much appreciated.

      It will cost you 4-5 Lac Rupees with complete finishes
      Make sure that you dug the new foundations to the level of original / main building foundation level.
      You must have proper damp proofing as now a days dampness is destroying buildings
      Go for normal finishes not expensive not cheaper

    Hello,

    I have a 100×90 plot in Bahria Enclave, Islamabad. Want to construct a top quality house. About 3 bedrooms, and a study. Double story. Covered area around 8 marla. Insulated – double glazed aluminium windows. Wood flooring etc.

    Question: Rough cost?
    Question: Should I build it myself or hire a construction + interior designer company?
    Question: How can I choose a good company?

    Reply
    • Nohman
      8 marla house area will cost you approximately 50 Lakh + Boundary wall, Gate, water tank 10 Lakh
      so total cost will be 60 Lakh
      You should hire architect for design of your house
      But you should construct your home on labor rates
      Good contractor can be found in the area where you want to construct your homes. Gust look around, especially houses under construction in your neighborhood

    What is the sq ft cost of building a high quality A + or B quality 2 story house with attached garage and basement in Rawalpindi? (Plot: 25 Marla, House: 11 Marla) I noticed the category of homes fall between A+ – C. Please explain the difference between A + and B quality house. What determining factors are involved when figuring out the house grade?

    Jazakh Allah khair

    Reply
    • Khan
      The difference between A+ and B quality construction is the finishes.
      B quality finish is generally 2500 per sq ft
      A+ quality cost 3500-4000 per sq ft

      The actual difference is of finishes you choose for your home.

      In B quality you select local finishes like tiles, marbles, engineered doors, normal quality woodwork etc.

      In A+ quality construction you choose solid wood doors, imported tiles, granite floor, granite kitchen tiles, imported washroom fixture, switches electric stuff of German Made etc.

      The best idea always to build hose is to first complete the grey structure. Normally grey structure cost is the same for all finishing categories.
      Once you have completed grey structure, you can select finishes and wood work according to your budget.

      Labour cost of houses vary from texture to texture. Please do visit houses recently built in your area of which are under construction. Ask for rates from home owners and then decide.

      Basement is not a good option for 5 Marla houses. I personally visited a 5 Marla house with basement in PWD Islamabad. Design was not bad but due to extra stairs from porch area, car park / garage space was compromised. House just looked very conjugated.

          Construction categories and rates:
          C Class Construction = Rs. 2000/- per sq ft
          B Class Construction = Rs. 2500/- per sq ft
          A Class Construction = Rs. 3000/- per sq ft
          A+ Class Construction = Rs. 3500/- per sq ft

          Planning permission:
          In past, only two storey house construction was allowed. But now due to high population density, government is relaxing rules and third story is allowed.But it’s always better to discuss with the local authorities. Development or construction permission is granted by Local development Authorities like LDA- Lahore Development Authority, CDA in Islamabad.

          Just visit local development authority office and discuss all matters.

          Cost Distribution:
          Ground floor construction cost is more than first and second floor. Ground floor has extra works like foundation.

    I’m looking to build a 1 Kanal house on a 5 Kanal rugged land as a family house.

    This is rural area approximately 25km from Sohawa, 30km from Dina and 40km from Jhelum. The village is called “Panchur”.

    House requirements (initial idea):
    First Floor –
    2 Standard Bedrooms
    2 Master Bedrooms – both with ensuite (toilet/shower)
    1 Master Bathroom
    Ground Floor –
    Kitchen
    Storage room
    Dining room
    Living room
    Standard Bathroom
    Guest room with Utilities (toilet/shower)

    Also outdoor landscaping and garage/drive is required.

    Would appreciate it if someone can give me rough estimates and also any good architects/construction companies in this area.

    Based on the previous posts I can see that it will cost RS2 – 2.5k per sqf in cities however as this is rural I want an idea of the cost.

    I have a budget of £100K at the moment.

      3 storey flat building will cost you 1.5-1.75 Crore Rupees
      Things to note:

      Structure should have columns and beams
      Stair should be wide enogh to easily carry beds, sofas, fridges etc. 4.5 feet wide
      Must provide 1 Parking space for each apartment
      Proper ventilation of apartments is a must
      Apartments should have ample natural light with balconies and terraces

      Things are changing. We should develop buildings that can accommodate future technical changes. (eg. Car ownership is increasing in Pakistan). Make buildings that are useable after 50 years.

      Make strong foundation and structures so that if government allows in future, you can build more floors.

      Grey structure cost for double storey 8 Marl house is 30-35 Lakh Rupees (including boundary wall, gate, water tank etc)
      Finishing will cost 25-30 Lakh Rupees depending on the finishing tiles you select and also quality of wood work
      Complete house construction cost is 55-65 Lakh Rupees

    Hello,

    I have 240 yard house in Karachi, right now it has Muzek flooring and it is almost damaged and very old. I want to have Tile or Marble flooring in my house. I don’t know the actual size of rooms etc. Can I have rough guess estimate for tile and marble flooring?

    thanks.

      Tiles fixing cost depends on cost of tiles or marble you select for your home and also fixing cost.
      Tiles prices has lot of variation due to different qualities.
      First decide what you need tile or marble floor
      then select quality or type of tiles or marble
      Ask contractor to fix

      This is the simple way for you

      But roughly normal tile of marble cost with fixing should be 200 per sq ft
      so for 240 sq yards house Marble good quality tiles and marble for flooring should cost 5 Lakh rupees

    Aoa, I have a 1 kanal (55 x 98) plot, thinking of constructing on 40 x 50 only rest will be ground/lawn, ground floor will consist of 2 bedrooms with bathrooms, 1 drawing, 1 dinning, 1 Tv longue, 1 kitchen and 2 extra bathrooms and on the second floor 2 bedrooms with bathrooms and off course a water tank cemented not plastic one. That’s it I am thinking this will be somewhere around 2700 to 3000 sq feet constructed. I would like to know what will be the approximate cost of grey structure and the finished one with boundary walls etc. Need normal finishing but the grey structure should be top notch quality.

    Ground Floor

    Room 1 and 2 = 15 width x 15 length each
    Bathrooms 1 and 2 = 5 width x 10 length each
    Drawing and Dinning = 15 width x 35 length combined
    Tv longue = 15 width x 10 length
    Kitchen = 15 width x 10 length
    2 Extra bathroom = 5 width x 7.5 length each
    Almost 5 to 7 feet width x 50 length walking path in between

    1st Floor

    Room 1 and 2 = 15 width x 15 length each
    Bathrooms 1 and 2 = 5 width x 10 length each
    Almost 5 to 7 feet width x 20 length walking path in between

    2nd Floor

    Water Tank

      Your plot size is 2700 square feet or 12 Marla
      Approximate covered area for 2 storey house will be 3000 sq ft
      Grey structure including boundary wall, gate and water tank will cost you 40 Lakh Rupees.
      Complete Finishing will cost you 60-65 Lakh Rupees

      Best option for you is to first complete grey structure of your home including boundary wall, gate, water tank etc.
      Then step by step you can complete finishing work
      Remember, never wait for complete budget or money first finish as much work as you can as labor cost and material cost increases day by day.

      Covered area of your home with basement would be approximately 4000 square feet ( Basement, G.F & F.F)
      It will cost you about 1 Crore Rupees including finishing, boundary wall, gate, landscape, water tanks etc.
      1250 per sq ft for grey structure
      +
      1000 per sq ft for finishing
      +
      10 Lakh rupees for landscape, boundary wall, water tank, gate etc.

      Sir if you want to do all high quality work e.g imported sanitary fitting, imported tiles, imported marble slab, granite, solid doors, PVC double glazed windows, false ceiling, with good quality lights, heating system, solar system etc etc etc, then the per sqft cost will come from Rs 4000 to Rs 5000 (all depends on your selection of material and structure). Now if you have covered area 250 Sq yard = 2250 Sq feet
      x Rs. 4500/Sft = Rs . 10.125 Million (Estimated cost of your house)

      Great pint.
      properties and houses are out of reach of even middle-class people in Karachi, Lahore and Islamabad due to limited land, high population and fast commercialization.
      The only option for people with low budget is to move to suburb of cities. Our government should start social housing or government housing for low income people.

      Your house construction will cost you 80-100 LAKH. Interwood company is one of the top companies of Pakistan for kitchen, woodwork, doors etc.
      Due to a brand name their rates are sometime out of reach. But at the same time interwood offer variety in term of qualities.
      If budget is not an issue for you, go for interwood
      But if you want to save money, hire some good carpenter already working near your home (site area)
