If I want to built a wall of say 10' X 10'. Considering the brick dimensions as 9"X4"X2.5" & wall width 1' (correct me if i am wrong in case of dimensions) , how many bricks will i require? You can change dimensions as per your convenience. FYI, I have to built a new house so to estimate the total bricks i need this calculation. If needed u can contact me on
@Prasad Ajinkya • 28 Jan, 2008 Santosh, this is based on simple mensuration.

First you need to find the total surface area of the house, then you need to determine how thick a wall you will need. That gives you the total brick volume.

Then just divide that by the individual volume of a brick. Ensure that both the quantities are of the same unit (Cubic CM is advised).

Round off to the nearest round figure to accommodate wastage and breakage.
