QUANTITIES OF CONCRETE MASONRY AND MORTAR
This table calculates theoretical quantities only. On-site management and monitoring of waste has a large influence on the final quantity of materials that would actually be used.
A 190mm boundary wall, 80m long and 2m high using MA190 blocks, with class II mortar is to be built.
Area of wall: 80m x 2m = 160m²
Number of blocks / m² = 12.5
Total number of blocks required = 12.5 x 160 = 2000
Mortar required = 160m² / 100 x 1.43 = 2.29m³ OR 2 x 1.14 = 2.28m³
Plaster required = 2 x 0.80 = 1.60m³
Combined mortar and plaster = 3.88m³
