- Construction Cost for First Floor
- How it is calculated

## Area of First Floor

To know construction cost for the first floor first you need to know the area of the first floor you need to expand.

For calculating the area you need to measure the first floor length and width.

Then multiply length and width to find the area.

For example, let’s assume length and width of your home as 30 feet and 40 feet

Length * Width = Area

30 feet * 40 feet = 1200 sq ft

If you’re not constructing the entire first floor then measure only the area you need to construct.

## Construction Cost for First Floor

Let’s look into the construction cost for the first floor in Trichy and how it is calculated.

Normally standard home construction cost starts from Rs 2200 per square feet and varies depending upon the specifications.

For only first floor construction cost it may slightly differ from normal construction cost as there won’t be any foundation works.

But there will be some additional work such as transferring materials for ground to the first floor.

So the construction cost may reduce about Rs 50 to Rs 100 per sq ft.

Hence the construction cost for the first floor starts from Rs 2100 per sq ft.

Then for a 1200 sq ft area first floor it cost around 25,20,000.

## Now let’s see how it is calculated.

For calculating the construction cost for the first floor.

Multiply the area to be constructed with construction cost per square feet for the first floor.

**Example 1**

Let’s take the first floor area as 1200 sf ft as we mentioned above in the area of the first floor.

Area * Construction Cost for First Floor

1200 sq ft * Rs 2100 = ₹ 25,20,000

Let’s take a miscellaneous of 5%

1,26,000 + 25,20,000 = ₹ 26,46,000

Here the construction cost would be around 26.5 lakhs.

**Example 2**

Let’s take 700 sf ft additional part of your home area to be added to your home.

Area * Construction Cost for First Floor

700 sq ft * Rs 2200 = ₹ 15,40,000

Let’s take a miscellaneous of 5%

77,000 + 15,40,000 = ₹ 16,17,000

Here the additional area to be added on your home would be around 16.2 lakhs.
