Construction cost in 2021


Current Market Price

Click here for latest prices – ₹1600/- per Sq. ft.

In Chennai, the construction cost in 2021 is between 1600 Rs/sqft to 2000 Rs/sqft. It includes materials and labor. For duplex building – 1800 Rs/sqft. For luxury houses – 2000 Rs/sqft.

Everyone will have a question that what is included and what is not included and, before going into detail, you must understand that you cannot come to the conclusion about the construction cost without designing the house.

Generally, at 1600 Rs/sqft you cannot expect premium products but we can build a strong building at this price but you cannot build a beautiful house and, Second quality bricks will be used.

If you are planning to build another floor in the future, it will be a big question mark whether that building will withstand the load. So, building a house has too many factors to be considered.

Construction cost in 2021 – Choose the builder

Nowadays, anyone can start a building construction business. There are some important points to note:

  1. The builder must have a registered architect to create a house plan.
  2. The builder must provide a structural drawing before starting the project.
  3. There should be a qualified site engineer carrying a diploma in civil engineering or Civil Engineering degree.
  4. Site engineers must have a minimum of 5 years of experience.
  5. If the site engineer doesn’t have the experience, there should be seniors to guide the site engineers.
  6. All the important discussion has to be given in writings.
  7. A rate card has to be signed along with the agreement for all the other construction-related services.
  8. The builder must be well versed in procurement. They must have good knowledge of all the products they use.
  9. If you want to change the product which they have mentioned in the specification, they must give the base rates for each product which they will use.
  10. Many builders don’t know to give the price break up for each stage of construction.
  11. In the event of a dispute, you must have a clear idea of how much you have been charged for each stage.
  12. If the builder does not have any office or infrastructure, be careful that many builders stop the building in the middle and run away. It will be very costly for sourcing another contractor.

Anyone can start the project but completing the project as planned is very important.
