Brick work is always calculated in CUM and the size of bricks without mortar is 190*90*90 and brickwork with mortar is 200*100*100
For 1 CUM brickwork 500 bricks are required
in which 23% is mortar and 77% is brick

By using standard bricks of size 19x9x9 and adding 1 cm to every side as mortar mix we get brick size as 20x10x10 and we get 100 bricks for 1 square meter

In simple ways: You can convert 1 square m intro cubic meter by assuming only one layer of brick work in square meter and so multiplying the thickness of one brick (0.09 m)

Once you get total bricks by dividing total cu.m by Vol. of brick
you can assume 30% mortar in one cu.m (by standard but you can also calculate it)

You will get quantity of cement in bag and sand

How much cement required for 1 Sft brick work 1:5 ratio?

  Was this answer useful?  Yes


  • Jan 11th, 2017

For CM 1:4, The cement required for 1 sq. ft will be 0.50 bag.
i.e, 1 sq. ft = 0.092 sq.m
(0.092 / CM RATIO)
= (0.092/1+4) = 0.0186.
Now divide the volume of Mortar by Volume of 1 cement bag
i.e, = 0.0186/0.0357
= 0.52 bag.

These are all depends on the cement mortar. If the mistery make it thick, then less brick will be consumed. Average numbers of bricks per sqm is 45-50. We cannot tell the exact numbers of bricks

Please Elaborate how 44/sqm bricks come.

  • May 24th, 2017

Area- 1 Sqm
size of 1 brick per sqm is 0.2*0.1
Hence no of bricks per sqm will be =(1x1)/(0.2x0.1)= 50

but dear sir, for single wall i.e. 115mm or also known as partition wall

  Was this answer useful?  Yes


  • Sep 21st, 2017

It depends upon the size of bricks.
for example
thickness of wall is 0.115 .
size of bricks is 0.230x0.75x0.115
so, 0.115mm = thickness
1.0 = length
1.0 = height
so calculate the thickness x length x height = 0.115*1*1=0.115cum
in 1 cum there should be requied 400 nos of bricks
so, 0.115x400=46
