  1. what is the productivity of a labor in a masonry works or in other works, since laying is
    8-10 sq.m/day is it labor included or not? if included how many Thanks

    Reply
    • Hi po Sir Emmanuel, that is 8-10 square meter/day (around 100-120 pcs of CHB per day). Semi-skilled workers normally can install 60-70 pcs of CHB per day. Thanks!

  2. Hi good day. pakiclarify naman ang 7. STRUCTURAL STEEL vs G.1 STRUCTURAL STEEL kung ano difference ng dalawa.

  3. Thanks!. Your Prices are very helpful. All of these will be more effective if you have the latest updated prices as of late 2019 or 2020.

    More Power!

  5. Is that values you give is for one worker only? like for example in common excavation by hand..if you said it will be 6MH/m3 then if there are two workers then it will now be 3MH/m3? or am i getting it wrong? thanks

  6. Is that manhour/unit is for one worker?like for example in common excavation by hand..if you said that there is 6MH/m3..then if two workers will work then it will now be 3MH/m3? Sorry I’m just a bit lost.. thanks for answering!

    • The 6MH/m3 this means that 1 worker can finish the manual excavation in 6hrs in one cubic meter. if you put 2 workers can be done in 3hrs. Therefore, this is realistic.
