Rate Analysis – Construction item of works

I love this.

It empowers a civil engineer from within. Yes, ‘it’ is about Rate Analysis. Initially while studying, students may find it a little difficult initially but, later once getting in the field of operations, command over the RA becomes essential.

Rate analysis (RA) is a crucial activity while estimating the cost of a proposed work. The term RA is essential to identify each of the applicable variables as per the prevailing market rates. For the jobs of the Government, there exists Schedule of Rates (SOR) which is derived based on standard practice guidelines issued by the Public Works Department (PWD)/ Central Public Works Department (CPWD). However, the departments/ ministries carry out their own version for benchmarking SOR of their own. Even, the rates vary from districts to districts due to changes in the material and the

However, the departments/ ministries carry out their own version for benchmarking SOR of their own. Even, the rates vary from districts to districts due to changes in the material and the labour availability. Below I am sharing an excel file to carry out RA for building construction items based on SOR derivation of rates. The rates are of 2008-2009 however, prevailing rates can be inserted to extract current SOR.

Using the model calculations shown in the excel file, one can derive market rate for similar items. Upon practice of deriving rates for different items of work, it becomes easier for an estimator to derive rate for any of the item without any help of model calculations, later.

Happy estimating…!
