How much will your building cost to construct in Kenya?

posted in: Blog | 222

“How much will it cost me to put up this building?”, for sale is one of the most common questions i get during the initial meetings with clients to discuss their brief and requirements in detail and also to agree on the terms of service.

How much a building will cost to construct usually depends on very many factors like the type of building, its location, specification of materials, wall to floor ratio, floor to ceiling heights, site topography, types of joinery and fittings, and quality of electrical and mechanical installations. The other major factor, of course, is the size (area) of space to be built up.

The easiest way to roughly estimate how much your building will cost is by consulting someone else who has recently built something like what you would want to put up in both size and quality. Its easy to strike such a coincidence in housing projects since they are all similar in size, space provision and finishes. For other types of buildings however, it is difficult to get someone with exactly the same as what you may want.

For such, the Institute of Quantity Surveyors of Kenya has developed some guidelines for the major towns, picked up recently completed projects, measured their sizes in square metres and established their actual construction costs. They then calculated the rate of construction per square metre which, if multiplied by the desired size of project, would give a fairly accurate indication of the estimated construction costs. This cost is inclusive from foundation to finishes but generally exclude site works which may vary greatly even in projects that are similar in space provisions.

The rates are for Mombasa, Nairobi and Kisumu and would generally cover nearby surrounding areas. The could be slightly higher in more remote areas. They have also been specified for exactly what kind of building types they are, as the costs differ.

What you need to do is establish how big your building would be in square metres, then multiply that by the rate given.

Again, it is important to consult professionals to guide you on all these matters. This is just a guideline and should be taken just as that. We shall therefore not be responsible for any errors or losses and damage arising from reliance on this information without having directly contacted any professionals.

  1. Insightful. Thank you.

  2. What of 2 br bungalow in a rural area (80Sq metres)

    • Jackline, it will be important to know exactly where that rural area is. That would however fall in the Low Cost Low Rise category which ranges between Kshs 29,000 to Kshs 32,000 per square metre. You are looking at spending Ksh 2.56 Million.

      • Ksh 2.56m is quite expensive for such a small/simple building. Remember low rise low clost flat includes reinforced concrete suspended floors which is not the case in a bungalow. The rate per sqm should be less than 29,000/=

      • What if I use bricks.in the western part if rural kenya

  3. Interesting Thanks for this

  4. Okello Omondi

    This is a brilliant and wonderful article to preserve in my files and use it during such times that am now ready to put up a wonderful house for my lovely wife and kids. May God bless the works of your hands sir

  5. Nicholas Patel

    These are good indications. But you need to factor in your personal cost. Your monthly income divided by hours worked. Then count your site visits from the time you leave for the site till you get back….And dont forget to keep a tab on the Mpesa transactions for each time the fundi says something is short……

  6. Hey…how much will you charge to draw a 3 bedroom house design? plus costing.

  7. Bonface Kiambi

  13. Is it possible you give us an insight on EPS panels and if there are any cost savings on them

  14. Hi, good piece of information. Kindly let me know if the area is calculated floor to floor or its just the ground floor!

  15. Amazing. I have been looking for such a guidance for a while. I know I was meant to consult with the professionals but I was stuck on where do I begin? I’m now armed with key things to start up the conversations with them. Next step is now set up meetings with the professionals. Thank you.

  18. i want to construct a 4bedroom house at Isinya Kajiado on a 1l8 piece of plot, could you advise me
    on foundation and design,

  19. Wycliffe Chepkiyeng

    Does this mean the rate for constructing flats in Kilimani is the same as that in Kayole?

    • Wycliffe, of course no supplier will ask where you are building so that they adjust prices of cement or steel accordingly. The costs are therefore the same. We can discuss quality later.

      • KENNEDY

        hi, how much would it cost to build one bedroom houses(150 units) on a 3 plots (@one eighth)

        regards

    • Wycliffe Chepkiyeng

      I think the quality of finishes and fixtures should be one of the main factor to consider while coming up with these rates. By doing so a detailed list of prices per location will show a lot of variation even in Nairobi zones alone. I would imagine someone who wants to rent or buy a flat in Westlands, Kilimani and other high end estates would expect in terms of quality as opposed to a person who specifically goes Eastlands to get home.

      • Wycleff, if you check the schedule, it has been clearly indicated the rates for ‘high class residential’ and ‘low cost residential’. This would ideally cater for the expectations you have noted above, with regards to quality of finishes expected of houses in high end areas as opposed to those in low cost zones. But, cement, steel, etc, remains the same no matter the location within the city.

  20. A good article it is..How much can it cost for a 3 bedroom house like the one on your profile in Thika?
    Thank you

  21. Great piece. I'm sold

    Please email me.

  22. Hi. Thanks for the piece of advice above. I have a dream of putting up a three bedroom house on my quarter but I don’t know how to go about it.

  23. I am interested in building a 4 bedroom maisonette this year 2 of the rooms will be ensuite, in Nyeri, near Naru moro town. How much will this cost me please.
    Stella

  24. Quite costly than i thought, i need a low budget house

  25. Martin, I wonder how the style of roofing for the “Maisonettes Development in Kitengela” project if it would be ideal in wet climatic area? If Not, how could it be modified?

    I am am exploring putting up town home style of housing on a 3/4 acre plot in Vihiga, and the Kitengela design is close to what I have in mind granted I have not looked further. What would this project roughly cost in Vihiga/western Kenya?

    Please drop me a note, I look to break ground within 15 months due to current lease on the plot.
    Thank you, excellent civil enlightenment good job.

  26. Thank you, my other question which would be beneficial to public consumption is, do you have any links with prospective processional constructor(s), I mean one(s) who would do the project start to finish with their own material and just hand over keys as per agreement (have seen and liked your piece on use or not to use contractor article)? The premise of project is as I mentioned earlier rental town homes.
    I appreciate your works, hopefully will do business in comings days.
    Again thank you.

  39. Ann Motopi

    Hi there,

    Thank you for the document. I would like to understand the range of costs for shopping centres in Kenya & eactly what is the market standard in terms of what is offered to tenants. Would tenants be expected to carry the total cost of the tenant installation or would a portion of the cost be for the developer’s cost?

  40. The table given specifically for maisonettes ….. does the formula cover only one floor or for the entire unit…..eg a 58sq meter one….is it 58*41000*2 or just 58*41000

  41. Really need to put up some permanent 2 bedroom house for my mum in Kiambu. Roughly how much? Would 200k manage to put up this? Just an average sizes of houses.

The smallest land footprint as land is quite expensive now in Nairobi. Would it also be worth getting a Chinese company to build it, as they are quite competitive and fast in building? Thanks.

Include electrical wiring for the showers and kitchen). Finally, I need the roof to be tiled and any other basic inclusions you can recommend. Please let me know how I need to begin and progress to a level whereby if it stalls it will still be useful(habitable). Thanks and congrats for always being in the top of the search results for this topic.
