Construction is an arduous process, as it is not just the pouring of concrete and brickwork. Several tiny details are crucial in construction and thus planning for a dream home can be taxing when you don’t have an in-depth idea about the cost of building a home in Indore. We are trying to give you an idea of the cost of construction in Indore and about the overall factors that you need to consider while estimating the cost of a house. For this, we have conducted extensive surveys across various townships such as Omaxe City, Silicon City, Treasure town, Silver Springs, Wildflower, Oasis Countywalk, Vistara City, DLF Garden Park city, Singapore lifestyle, Casa Greens, and many more. Across all these townships Dream homes are built by Indoris every day.

Once the actual cost of construction and factors involved are understood/decoded, limpid also talks about how you can reduce the cost of construction of your house in an upcoming blog.

Cost of House Construction in Indore 2020

The cost of house construction in Indore of good quality typically starts from approx. Rs. 1251/- per sqft. That means a house of 1000 sqft area will cost 12,51,000/- to construct. This cost may vary depending on the location, Built-up area, and finishing materials you choose. Now let’s see what adds up to the cost of construction:

  1. Design /Layout: The first step towards the construction of your house is preparing a floor plan based on the size of your plot. Other than a basic floor plan, architects and engineers also specialize in providing you with elevation drawing, 3D layout and also the structural drawings. The fees of the architect or engineer largely depend on the size of the plot and type of services provided.
  2. Structure Cost: The civil work includes the cost of raw materials like cement, steel, sand, aggregate, shuttering material, and the cost of labor like mistri, mason, carpenter, electrician, etc. The quantity of material and the man-hours of labor depend largely on the design of the structure and the Built-up area to be constructed.
  3. Finishing Cost: The unit rate of finishing works usually depends upon the specifications you choose. For example, when you plan the flooring works of your house, there are a variety of materials available in the market and the rates for each of these types vary.
    1. Vitrified tiles: Rs.30 to Rs.180 and above
    2. Granite: Rs.80 to Rs.600 and above
    3. Italian Marble: Rs.300 to Rs.3000 and above

Also, the similar can be said for bathroom fixtures, where again a large variety of material and accessories are available which also significantly vary in rates that to coming from the same brands.

We know it might be hard for you to understand what these types/brands of materials that are used in construction. So, to further simplify them for you we have created house construction packages.
