Building a house in Pakistan is not an easy task by any means. The cost of construction in Pakistan has been on the rise, and recently another surge in the prices of construction material was witnessed with the rise in Dollar rates. 

However, we are providing a number of construction tips and tricks which can help you in reducing construction cost and saving money in Pakistan.

Choose the Best Housing Society and Buy a Plot

Although it may not seem to be an important aspect, but location plays a crucial role in deciding the overall costs of construction in Pakistan. 

If you have purchased a plot in a housing society, you have to make sure that relevant government authorities such as RDA or CDA have approved these housing societies. This will save you from unnecessary costs of verification. 

More importantly, you must choose a housing society where all facilities, especially access to water and electricity, is available. For instance, Housing societies such as Capital Smart City Islamabad and Blue World City Islamabad have been considered as the future of real estate in Islamabad, primarily because they are facilitating people to invest and build houses in Capital Smart City or Blue World City at reasonable rates. 

Always Check the Soil before Construction

As a solid foundation is necessary for building strong infrastructures, you must always check the nature of the soil before commencing construction. This is considered to be an essential step of the construction process as soil can behave differently depending on its nature. 

In order to save you from higher costs, residential plots with hard soil should be selected rather than agricultural or paddy-field plots. Thus, plots in Blue World City or Capital Smart City in Islamabad can be chosen. Because of Chakri region’s hard soil, the 5 Marla plots in Blue World City Islamabad and Capital Smart City are the best for construction of houses.

Facilities such as Electricity and Water Supply

Another crucial tip for construction in Pakistan is to always ensure access to basic facilities such as electricity and water supply. Having a consistent water supply and electricity connection helps in reducing construction costs and less time is consumed for construction. 

In case of absence of such facilities, you will have to apply for a separate poll connection or a plumbing pipe to your plot. This can be very costly for construction in Pakistan. Thus, this aspect must always be kept in mind. We would definitely recommend buying a plot in Capital Smart City Islamabad as all facilities are available in this housing society and you can build your house in a less costly manner.

Calculate the Construction Material Needed

Once you’ve found a perfect location for construction, the emphasis now shifts to the construction material being used in the process. It is extremely important that keeps a cost check over all the material being used in the process. 

The construction material including cement, bricks, sand, and rods can be bought in bulk after making proper calculation of the total magnitude of material needed. This will help you in minimizing the cost by getting discounts upfront rather than purchasing the material in smaller quantity again and again. This will not only increase the cost but also delay the construction process.

Machinery and Labor Cost

While construction, it is important to use the best construction machinery. In Blue World City Islamabad, there is a strong fleet of machinery which is growing with time. Such construction machines can be quite helpful in the overall construction process, and can save considerable time and cost. 

Therefore, it is established that building a house is not an easy task however its costs can be reduced by following the above-mentioned tips for construction in Pakistan.
