Cost Of Constructing A Perimeter Wall In Kenya

The cost of constructing a perimeter wall in Kenya can vary significantly depending on several factors, such as the size of the plot, the type of materials used, and the location of the project.

Cost Of Constructing A Perimeter Wall on 50X100 plot In Kenya

A stone perimeter wall for a 50×100 plot would typically cost between KES 590,000 – KES 960,000. This cost includes the materials like stones, blocks, cement, sand, and ballast, as well as labor expenses.

The exact cost can be influenced by factors like the type of soil (e.g. black cotton soil is more expensive to build on), the distance to the material sources, and the design of the wall (e.g. using reject stones vs. regular stones).

Here is a breakdown of the estimated costs based on the provided sources:

Materials:

  • Stones: The cost of stones for a 50×100 plot can range from KES 150,000 to KES 300,000.
  • Sand: The cost of sand for a 50×100 plot can range from KES 40,000 to KES 100,000.
  • Ballast: The cost of ballast for a 50×100 plot can range from KES 30,000 to KES 60,000.
  • Cement: The cost of cement for a 50×100 plot can range from KES 60,000 to KES 150,000.
  • Steel Bars: The cost of steel bars for a 50×100 plot can range from KES 20,000 to KES 40,000.

Labor:

  • Fundi (Laborer): The cost of labor for a 50×100 plot can range from KES 80,000 to KES 200,000.

Other Expenses:

  • Gate: The cost of constructing a gate can range from KES 50,000 to KES 150,000.
  • Finishing: The cost of finishing work such as plastering or painting can range from KES 70,000 to KES 100,000.

Total Cost:

  • Concrete Perimeter Wall: The total cost of constructing a concrete perimeter wall on a 50×100 plot can range from KES 590,000 to KES 960,000.

Cost Of Constructing A Perimeter Wall on 1 acre In Kenya

For a larger plot of 208ft x 208ftwhich is one acre (approximately 63m x 63m), the estimated cost would be around Ksh 1,200,000 to Ksh 2,400,000 for a 240-meter perimeter wall, based on a rate of KES 5,000 to KES 10,000 per running meter.

The cost of the architectural and structural plans, as well as county approvals, should also be factored in on top of the construction costs.

Additionally, the quality of workmanship can impact the long-term durability of the perimeter wall.

Here’s an example breakdown of the estimated costs for constructing a perimeter wall on an acre plot (plot of 208 ft x 208 ft which) in Kenya:

  1. Materials:
    • Concrete Blocks, Machine Cut Stones, or Bricks, Rebar, Timber, Approximately KES 3,000 to KES 5,000 per running meter. For acre plot with a wall height of 2.5 meters (assuming no gate), the perimeter length would be around 240 meters. So, if we take an average cost of KES 4,000 per square meter:
      • Cost per meter length = 240 meters * KES 4,000 = KES 960,000
    • Fencing Materials (Optional): If you opt for chain link fencing, it could cost around KES 1,000 to KES 1,500 per meter depending on height and quality.
  2. Additional Costs:
    • Foundation: Depending on soil type and wall type, foundation costs can vary. It’s typically around 10% to 15% of the total materials cost. For our estimate:
      • Estimated foundation cost = 0.1 * KES 960,000 = KES 96,000
  3. Labor Costs:
    • Labor costs typically range from 30% to 50% of the total materials cost, depending on the complexity of the project and location. For our estimate:
      • Estimated labor cost = 30% of materials cost = 0.3 * KES 1,016,000 = KES 304,800
  4. Total Estimated Cost:
    • Total cost (assuming materials at KES 4,000/ running meter):
      • Materials cost = KES, 960,000
      • Labor cost = KES 304,800
      • Foundation cost = KES 96,000
      • Total estimated cost = KES 960,000 KES 96,000 + KES 304,800 = KES 1,360,800

Please note that these are rough estimates and actual costs can vary based on factors such as location, market rates, quality of materials, and specific project requirements.

It’s advisable to get detailed quotations from local contractors to get a more accurate cost estimate tailored to your plot and needs.

Cost Of Chain-Link Fencing For An Acre Acre

The cost of chain-link fencing for the same acre acre land can range from KES 1,000 to KES 2,000 per linear meter.

For a 240-meter perimeter, the total cost would be approximately KES 240,000 to KES 480,000.
