Covered Area of the Project
The tentative covered area of the project at the current stage is estimated around 100,000 sft including all floors above and below the ground level. After completion of conceptual design more realistic figure could be determined. There could be an increase of 5 to 10% of covered area based on the final space planning of the project.
Tentative Cost of the Project
This is in reference to the construction of a 200 beds hospital at Ravi Road, Lahore. Keeping in view the standard specifications of construction materials and their associated market rates. However these rates could be raised due to the fluctuation of material/fuel prices during the current financial year. A tentative construction rate of the project for various floors at different levels as follows;
Basement level will be around -15’-0” from the road level, to be used for Parking, Electrical / Mechanical room. The height of the floor will be 10’-0”. Considering the nature of the soil of the site, a raft foundation would be required with a frame structure.
The outer walls of the structure (retaining walls) will be of concrete generally 9” thick.
Tentative rate of the basement will be Rs.6500/sft.
Lower Ground Floor
Lower Ground Floor will start from a level of -5’-0”; will accommodate all kinds of testing services including Laboratory services, scanning services & CSSD. The height of the floor will be 11’-0”. Considering the nature of spaces, the tentative cost of this floor will be Rs.5500/sft.
