Welcome friends, in this blog post we will see the number of bricks required for 12×16 feet room construction along with deep calculation. After reading this post you will be able to calculate number of bricks for 12×16 feet room and other size room too.

# How Many Bricks Required For 12×16 Feet Room?

2604 bricks required for 12×16 feet room approximately. We have considered four walls, one gate and one window in the room, assuming the standard wall height of 10 feet (only brick work) and Indian standard brick size 190×90×90 mm. In first case the thickness of wall is 4 inch and in second case the thickness of wall is 9 inch.

## Calculation For Number of Bricks Required in 12×16 Feet Room

To calculate number of bricks in 12×16 feet room, we need some requirements and considerations for construction.

### Requirements and Considerations

We need to ensure about some pre-construction requirements in the brick work along with some future consideration in construction of the room.

#### Our Requirements For the Room

Our requirements for 12×16 feet room are following:
• Four sided walls
• One gate
• One window
In this room, we are ignoring ventilation because its not required in the most of room.

#### Our Consideration For the Room

We consider following to calculate the number of bricks in 12×16 feet room:

• The two face to face walls size= 10 feet height × 12 feet width or 120 inch × 144 inch and
• Another two face to face wall size= 10 feet height × 16 feet width or 120 inch × 192 inch.
• One window (window size= 4 feet × 3 feet or 48 inch × 36 inch).
• One gate ( gate size= 7 feet × 3 feet or 84 inch × 36 inch).
• Brick size (Indian modular brick size or Indian standard brick size = 190 mm × 90 mm × 90 mm or 7.48 inch × 3.54 inch × 3.54 inch).
• Mortar thickness 12 mm and
• Wall thickness is 4 inch.

### Calculate the Area of Each Wall:

To calculate number of bricks required for 12x16 feet room, we need to calculate the area of each wall separately because there are four walls in the room. The total area of all four walls would be the sum of the areas of each wall.

• Length of the room = 12 feet
• Width of the room = 16 feet
• Height of the wall = 10 feet

#### The Area of Each Wall Would Be

1. Wall 1: Length x Height = 12 feet x 10 feet = 120 square feet
2. Wall 2: Length x Height = 12 feet x 10 feet = 120 square feet
3. Wall 3: Width x Height = 16 feet x 10 feet = 160 square feet
4. Wall 4: Width x Height = 16 feet x 10 feet = 160 square feet

#### The Total Area of All Four Walls Would Be

Total area of walls in 12×16 feet room
= Wall 1 + Wall 2 + Wall 3 + Wall 4
= 120 + 120 + 160 + 160 = 560 square feet

### Subtract the Area of the Window and Gate From the Total Wall Area

Since there are one gate in the room and one window in the room. So, we need to calculate the area of the gate and the window separately. The total area of all wall only would be the sum of the areas of each wall subtracted by the areas of the gate and the window.

• Height of the gate= 7 feet
• Width of the gate= 3 feet
• Height of the window= 4 feet
• Width of the window= 3 feet

#### The Area of Gate and Window Would Be

• Area of Gate in 12×16 Feet Room: Height x Width = 7 feet × 3 feet = 21 square feet
• Area of Window in 12×16 Feet Room: Height x Width = 4 feet × 3 feet = 12 square feet

### The Total Area of the Gate and Window Would be

Total area of gate and window in 12×16 Feet Room
= Area of gate + Area of window
= 21 square feet + 12 square feet = 33 square feet

Subtracting the area of the window and gate from the total wall area, we get the net area of the walls that need to be covered with bricks:

Net area of walls in 12×16 Feet Room
= Total area of walls - Total area of gate and window
= 560 square feet - 33 square feet = 527 square feet

#### Total Volume of Brick Work

The total volume of brick work in 12×16 Feet Room
= Total Area of brick in square feet × Thickness of wall in feet
= 527 × (4/12) = 175.67 cubic feet

### Determine the Number of Bricks For 12×16 Feet Room

To determine the number of bricks required for 12×16 feet room area, we need to first calculate the volume of a brick with mortar.

Volume of each brick without mortar

= Length × Width × Height = 190 mm × 90 mm × 90 mm= 1539000 mm3 or 0.05438 cubic feet.

Volume of each brick with mortar (12 mm mortar thickness)

= Length × Width = 202 mm × 102 mm × 102 mm = 2101608 mm3 or 0.07422 cubic feet.

Total number of bricks in 12x16 feet room

= Total Volume of Brick Work/ Volume of each brick = 175.67 cubic feet/ 0.07422 cubic feet = 2366.9 Bricks (Approximately 2367 Bricks)

Taking 10% wastage of bricks, the total number of bricks is 2367 +10%  of 2367= 2603.7 Bricks, Say 2604 Bricks.

### Final Result

The total number of bricks required  for 12×16 feet room of 4 inch wall is 2604 nos. approximately.

So, we would need approximately 2604 bricks to cover the walls of a 12×16 feet room with four walls (4 inch thick), one gate and one window, assuming a standard wall height of 10 feet and the standard brick size of 190×90×90 mm.

It's important to note that this calculation is an estimate and may vary depending on factors such as the pattern of the brickwork, the size of the mortar joints and the amount of waste generated during construction. It's always a good idea to order a few extra bricks than what you think you'll need in the construction.

## How Many Bricks Required For 12×16 Feet Room 9 Inch Wall?

The brick calculation for 12×16 feet room for nine inches thick wall is following:

### Some Requirements and Considerations

To calculate number of bricks required for 12×16 feet room, we need to ensure about requirements in the brick wall along with some future consideration in the construction of room.

#### Our Requirements

Our requirements for 12×16 feet room are following:
• Four sided walls
• One gate
• One window
In this room, we are ignoring ventilation because its not required in the most of room.

#### Our Consideration

We consider following to calculate the number of bricks in 12×16 feet room:

• The two face to face walls size= 10 feet height × 12 feet width or 120 inch × 144 inch and
• Another two face to face wall size= 10 feet height × 16 feet width or 120 inch × 192 inch.
• One window (window size= 4 feet × 3 feet or 48 inch × 36 inch).
• One gate ( gate size= 7 feet × 3 feet or 84 inch × 36 inch).
• Brick size (Indian modular brick size or Indian standard brick size = 190 mm x 90 mm x 90 mm or 7.48 inch × 3.54 inch × 3.54 inch).
• Mortar thickness 12 mm and
• Wall thickness is 9 inch.

### Calculate the Area of Each Wall

To calculate number of bricks required for 12×16 feet room, we need to calculate the area of each wall separately because there are four walls in the room. The total area of all four walls would be the sum of the areas of each wall.
• Length of the room = 12 feet
• Width of the room = 16 feet
• Height of the wall = 10 feet

#### The Area of Each Wall Would Be

1. Wall 1: Length × Height = 12 feet × 10 feet = 120 square feet
2. Wall 2: Length × Height = 12 feet × 10 feet = 120 square feet
3. Wall 3: Width × Height = 16 feet × 10 feet = 160 square feet
4. Wall 4: Width × Height = 16 feet × 10 feet = 160 square feet

#### The Total Area of All Four Walls Would Be

Total area of walls in 12×12 feet room = Wall 1 + Wall 2 + Wall 3 + Wall 4
= 120 + 120 + 160 + 160 = 560 Square Feet

### Subtract the Area of the Window and Gate From the Total Wall Area

Since there are one gate in the room and one window in the room. So, we need to calculate the area of the gate and the window separately. The total area of all wall only would be the sum of the areas of each wall subtracted by the areas of the gate and the window.

• Height of the gate = 7 feet
• Width of the gate= 3 feet
• Height of the window= 4 feet
• Width of the window= 3 feet

#### The Area of Gate and Window Would Be

• Area of Gate in 12×16 Feet Room: Height × Width = 7 feet × 3 feet = 21 square feet
• Area of Window in 12×16 Feet Room: Height × Width = 4 feet × 3 feet = 12 square feet

#### The Total Area of the Gate and Window Would Be

Total area of gate and window in 12×16 Feet Room= Area of gate + Area of window = 21 square feet + 12 square feet = 33 square feet

Subtracting the area of the window and gate from the total wall area, we get the net area of the walls that need to be covered with bricks:

Net area of walls in 12×16 Feet Room= Total area of walls - Total area of gate and window = 560 square feet - 33 square feet = 527 square feet

### Total Volume of Brick Work

The total volume of brick work in 12×16 Feet Room= Total Area of brick in square feet × Thickness of wall in feet = 527 × (9/12) = 395.25 cubic feet

### Determine the Number of Bricks For 12×16 Feet Room

To determine the number of bricks required for 12×16 feet room area, we need to first calculate the volume of a brick with mortar.

Volume of each brick without mortar

= Length x Width x Height = 190 mm × 90 mm × 90 mm= 1539000 mm3 or 0.05438 cubic feet.

Volume of each brick with mortar (12 mm mortar thickness)

= Length × Width = 202 mm × 102 mm × 102 mm = 2101608 mm3 or 0.07422 cubic feet.

Total number of bricks in 12×16 feet room

= Total Volume of Brick Work/ Volume of each brick = 395.25 cubic feet/ 0.07422 cubic feet = 5325 Bricks Approximately.

Taking 10% wastage of bricks, the total number of bricks is 5325+10%  of 5325= 5857.5 Bricks, Say 5858 Bricks.

### Final Result

The total number of bricks required  for 12×16 feet room of 9 inch wall is 5858 nos approximately.

So, we would need approximately 5858 bricks to cover the walls of a 12×16 feet room with four walls (9 inch thick), one gate and one window, assuming a standard wall height of 10 feet and the standard brick size of 190×90×90 mm.

It's important to note that this calculation is an estimate and may vary depending on factors such as the pattern of the brickwork, the size of the mortar joints and the amount of waste generated during construction. It's always a good idea to order a few extra bricks than what you think you will need in the construction.
