How to Calculate Numbers Of Bricks You Will Need In One cubic Feet

The most difficult aspects of building a brick structure is determining how many bricks you will need. Ordering too few can potentially delay your project, while ordering in excess is a quick way to throw money down the drain. Bricks are expensive and the cost of your masonry structure can add up quickly, especially if you need to organize the removal of excess bricks. It is much easier to get it right the first time.

How many Bricks do I Need

A single-layer brick wall, multiply the length of the wall by the height to get the area. Multiply that area by 60 to get the number of bricks you should need, then add 10% for waste. That's the short length answer and it assumes 'standard' brick and mortar sizes. It can also vary depending on the type of structure.

Calculate Many Bricks You Will Need

How to Calculate Numbers Of Bricks  You Will Need In One cubic Feet
Bricks Standard Size 

Length of Brick (L) = 9" =0.75ft 
Width of Brick (W) = 4.5" = 0.375ft 
Thickness of Brick (T) =3" = 0.25ft 

Volume of Brick  = L×W×T 
                                = 0.75×0.375×0.25 = 0.070ft³

Number of bricks in 1 cft = (1/0.070)
                                               = 14.285 bricks

Mortar covered 10 % space = 14.285×(10/100) 
                                                   = 1.4285 

 Quantity of bricks = 14.285 - 1.4285 
                                    = 12.856 Bricks.

Adding the 5 % wastage of Bricks 
                                   = 12.856 ×(5/100)

 Hence, Total numbers of bricks in 1 cft 
                                    = 12.856+0.6428 
                                    = 13.49 nos of bricks

How 🤔 Much Bricks Required In One Cubic Feet = 13.49 ~ 14 Nos of Bricks.
