# How to estimae total number of brick required

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 santosh.aherkar@gmail.com

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.

hi my friend.first your dimensions for brick is worng.it is 9"x4.5"x3".now first u find the volume of brick.it is .0703 cu ft.now find the volume of your wall which is 10'x10'x1'=100 cu ft.the no of your bricks are 100/.0703=1423 bricks.so it is the no of bricks for 1 wall of dimensions of 10'x10'x1'.hope it will be answer.
