Construction contracts in Pakistan

If you are someone who is always occupied and can’t find any time to carry on this project, then there are many companies in Pakistan that are providing these solutions. But the main issue that people face in outsourcing this project is trust and commitment. However, you can keep a firm check and balance to get things done for you.

Currently there are four types of construction contracts in Pakistan; we will discuss each briefly.

Labor contract:

In labor contract, the owner has to provide with all the material. Contractor keeps informing the owner about the material needs for the endeavors to carry on. This is a highly involving type of contract, and house owner has to stay connected all the time, so the work doesn’t stop.

Turnkey or lump sum contract:

In turnkey or lump sum contract all the responsibilities from architectural designing to construction lies on the contractor. Before signing such contracts the owner informs the contractor about their requirements. Owner keeps in mind the lifestyle, construction amenities, and affordability before signing the contract. Contractor fixes a price till handover, and this is how projects are carried on. These types of contracts provide you with a peace of mind.

The other two types are cost per square foot agreements, or cost plus percentage agreements. In these types of agreements, owner has to outsource the project depending upon the quality of work he requires. A fixed cost is decided before commencement of work. It lies on the contractor, the responsibility from grey structure to finished-home.

However, if you want to carry on the project all on yourself then we will elaborate the cost break down for construction.

Cost breakdown for construction in Pakistan, 2021

The construction project has two phases, and cost is calculated on this basis,

Grey structure cost:

Grey structure cost includes the construction of basic framework like, walls, pillars, beams, cement, steel structure, walls, and roof. This is the trickiest part of construction, and it takes a huge chunk from your pocket. Following tables will elaborate the grey structure cost for 5, 7, and 10 Marla house constructions, while the next table will explain the cost for 1 Kanal grey structure construction.

Finishing cost:

Once the grey structure is done, the very next thing that appears on mind is the finishing. After all it’s a dream project, and we do not make homes daily. House finishing includes tiles, bathroom amenities, doors, kitchen, and more. Further are the tables for elaboration.

Total estimated construction cost for a complete house:

Since we have evaluated both areas of concern i.e. grey structure and finishing, we are now in a position to estimate total cost, that you will have to bear.

5 marla plot: 2,614,450 + 1,940,500 = 4,554,950 PKR

7 marla plot: 3,447,750 + 2,971,000 = 6,418,750 PKR

10 marla plot: 3,989,000 + 5,720,105 = 9,709,105 PKR

1 kanal plot: 11,011,500 + 5,108,000 = 11,522,300 PKR

In addition to this, you will also have to bear few more charges in head of property tax, construction map passing, and other misc. charges. We will later inform you about all these charges in another article dedicated specially to this. Stay tuned.

    You have put some serious efforts in providing construction cost of different size of plots. I was looking 10 Marla costing and got some idea from here.
