& Distance Conversion Calculators
– if you require
a conversion for metres, yards, feet & inches etc.
Sub Base
this estimator will provide the
area in square metres (length x width) and the required compacted depth
and the estimator will provide the approximate quantity of crusher run
required for a consolidated sub base.
Excavated Material Calculator (Metric)
(also known as bulking) – enter the length, width and depth of excavation in metres. The results estimate will be given for the cubic metres of resultant spoil. Includes quantity and tonnes of excavations for sound rock, chalk, earth, clay, sand & gravel.
Or if you prefer Excavated Material Calculator (Imperial)
Concrete Calculator Readymix
enter the length & width in metres and the depth in millimetres and the estimator will work out the total volume of concrete required for your project.
Imperial Concrete Calculator Mix – On Site
Concrete Calculator Mix on Site – enter the dimensions
asked for and this will calculate the required quantities of sharp sand,
gravel (aggregate) and cement.
On Site Concrete Calculator – Imperial
Plaster Estimator Calculatorcalculate plaster. Enter
the width & length or height of the wall or ceiling to be plastered in
metres. The results will be provided for 25kg bags of bonding, browning,
hardwall, multi finish, board finish, & 1st coat render. Assuming 11mm
thickness. (see below for a more extensive internal plastering estimator).
Stud wall Calculator (Metric) – calculate metal, wood or timber quantity. Enter the length and height of your wall or walls and this will estimate the quantities of stud partition, insulation, plasterboard, scrim tape, screws and plaster.

Imperial Stud Wall Calculator

Roof Area CalculatorsEnter the length &
width and either the height of the gable or the fall to calculate the
areas for tiles, slates, felt etc.
Mortar Calculatorenter the area of brickwork in
square metres and this calculates the sand & cement requirements for a
general 4:1 mix. (see below for a more extensive estimator).
Block & Mortar Quantities Estimator
for Brick, block, sand, cement quantities for single skin, 6″,
9″ walls.
Mixed Screed Calculators

this calculates the approximate volume of
ready mix screed required for the given dimensions.
Quantities Estimator
calculator for floor
screed. Enter the dimensions asked for and this calculates individual
quantities for sand, cement, lime, plasticiser etc with many variables.
Render/Stucco Quantities Estimatorcalculator for render.
Enter the dimensions in the yellow boxes and this will calculate the
approximate quantities required for external rendering including sand,
lime & cement etc.
Paving Bed Calculator enter
the square metres of your project and this will provide you with an
estimate of the building materials required, including opc/cement by
number of 25kg and tonnes of sand.
Cost Estimate
estimator for a given area and
slab size, this works out the overall cost in square metres & yards of
any size of flag or slab.
