Look at new houses that are similar to the one you envision. Get the price of the house, subtract the price of the land, and divide that amount by the square footage of the home.
If the house is worth Sh50m and the land costs Sh25m, then the construction cost is Sh25m. If the home is 450 square metres, then the cost per square metre is about Sh55,500.
Note that high quality finishes significantly increase the building costs. A modest house in Nairobi goes for about Sh30,000 to Sh45,000 per square metre – with a high-end one going for about Sh50,000 to Sh80,000 per square metre.
The interiors of a house greatly influence building costs. Increasing the size and number of windows, use of vaulted ceilings and high roof pitches can significantly raise costs. The quality of roofing materials will also have an impact on costs.
The size of a house is also an important consideration. The cost per square foot is often higher for a smaller home compared to a larger home. When building a bigger house, the cost of pricey items such as a bathroom and kitchen is distributed over more square footage.
Construction cost estimate formula:
Example: 1,000 x Sh4,500 = Sh20.25m
Example: 1,000 x 0.4 = 400 bags of cement
Example: 1,000 x 0.816 = 816 tonnes of sand
Example: 1,000 x 0.608 = 608 tonnes of aggregate
Example: 1,000 x 4 = 4,000 kilos of steel
Example: 1,000 x 0.18 = 180 litres of paint
Example: 1,000 x 8 = 8,000 pieces of bricks
