The question doesn't even make any sense. If you want to build the house, go ahead. Who cares?..unless a doctor has announced your date of possible death and you are trying to beat the deadline to get the house ready for the funeral.

He probably needs the house for Christmas celebration

If you want it done in one month it’s possible, na your money go tell you. Employ more laborers who would walk day and night.

Do not be sway by those quacks advising you that you can finish in two months

DuduParaPara:
Hey! Guys.

I'll appreciate it if anyone with idea gives a breakdown.

If you also have a rough estimate of the cost please let us know.


Attention: DuduParaPara
I don't normally engaged myself in a platform like cus of my professional ethics and conduct, but for the sake of misleading information I'm tempted to do this.

This is the work programme schedule:

1. Site clearance, mobilization and excavation of trenches--- 5 days

2. Substructure ( from Blinding to Mass concrete floor) ------ 8 days

3. Ground floor block wall, lintel and columns (involving ironmongery and formwork) ------ 7 days

4. First floor slab and it's preparation (including formwork, ironmongery work and scaffolding) --------- 10days

5.:First floor block wall, lintel and columns (involving ironmongery and formwork) ------ 7days

6. Roof beam and parapet(prefab polystyrene) --------- 4 days

7. Roofing (including carcass and covering) ---------- 8 days

8. Service piping (Plumbing and Electrical) ---------- 3 days

9. Plasterwork (internal and external) -------; 7 days

10. PoP (cast in-situ) ------- 20 days: Gypsum board -------- 9 days

11. Screeding ( internal and external) -------- 4 days

12. Building components ( installation of Windows, burglar proofing and doors). --------- 6 days

13. Tiling (Floor and Wall) --------- 10 days

14. Installation of sanitary wares and plumbing fittings -------- 3 days

15. Electrical wiring & fittings ------- 5 days

16. Painting (External and internal) ----------- 5 days

Allow a time lap of 7 days in construction and finishing respectively for rest and delay ------------ 14 days

That is a minimum of 126 days is require to finish a four bedroom contemporary duplex using traditional approach of construction.

Note that this time frame exclude External works such as floor pavement, drain and landscaping.
Again the quality of your finishing or scope of interior works will also determine your eventual time frame.

As for the cost estimate I'll give you a hint.
What is the total square meter of your proposed floor plan, both ground and first floor?
Assume it is 150sqm apiece making it 300sqm in total.
Then your construction cost in Owerri baring it's a dry ground as you said will cost:
Btw 80-100k/sqm = 24-30m ( that is from excavation to Building carcass with roof covering)

Focus on quality and not speed. Any calamity which befalls the residents because of engineering oversight can never be reversed.

The cost boils down to your specification and taste, you can build a 5 bedroom duplex in one month and even less if you can afford to hire thore industrial heater to make the cement and concrete dry and harden faster

Now matter the money spent on it, any bungalow built, finished and painted within a month will be highly substandard.

people just believe construction is rocket science. They forgot some many things will have to factor in. No wonder they build collapsed houses. Ideally, it will take 3months minimum

Re: How Fast Can A 5 Bedroom Duplex Be Built In Nigeria? by Olakunleyakub(m): 6:21am On Sep 14
Not only depending on the finishing but the general taste.
There are some exterior materials that are really expensive.. imagine comparing a concrete block to a normal block.

So depending on the owners taste will determine the total cost of the building dough the interior is always assumed to be more expensive than the exterior
30m should do the work of a normal standard of duplex.
AntiWailer:


It depends on your finishing.

25 - 30 will surely do

Bukad:
Construction Duration Estimates
1.Building skeleton i.e to roofing level = 5 weeks

2. Finishings (plastering, electrical wiring, windows/doors, tilling, screening/painting, plumbing/electrical fittings)= 6 weeks

Total Duration= 11 weeks (Assuming constructed in dry season)

Cost Estimates
1. Building skeleton= N9.5m ( using stone coated roofing)

2. Finishings = N13.5m (using armoured doors for main entrances, Nigerian paneled casement windows, 60*60 Italian postlene tiles in major areas, Sweethome closed couple plumbing fittings with water heaters,etc)


Total= N23m ( Twenty three million Naira Only)


NB: We can be reached for other professional consultancy as we have delivered such structures around South East. Thanks

Purely wrong. Just my 3 bedroom duplex / paint house, I have spent over 20 million naira, yet I still need about 6 million to complete it. Let alone of 5 bedroom duplex

Hey! Guys.

I want to know how fast can a 5 or bedroom duplex be built? I mean in how many weeks?

Let's assume whatever money that will be needed is readily available, dry land is also available and cleared of trees and bushes.

Drawings and render also available.

Building is a contemporary design.

I'll appreciate it if anyone with idea gives a breakdown.

If you also have a rough estimate of the cost please let us know.
@ least 2 months,if it's dry season,if you do it in haste ,u might incure waste,let everything be standardize and give a good monitoring,from foundation to the roofing,make sure u monitor it,don't depends on family members,finishing is the main job.

It does not take 3 weeks for any decking to dry.

And whatever the time is it does not mean every other thing must be on hold.

Painting can take 1 - 2 days
Roofing 1 - 2 days
