CIDB - Labour Costs And Labour Output Information For Building Construction


This is the 1st publication by CIDB that provides information on labour daily wage rates, labour unit rates and labour output for selected common trades in the building construction works. The information is based on a survey conducted on building construction projects randomly selected in Kuala Lumpur, Selangor and Negeri Sembilan for the 2nd and 3rd quarter of 2006. The respondents are contractors registered with CIDB in Grades G5, G6 and G7.

The selected common trades in this publication comprise concretor, bricklayer, roofer, carpenter, joiner, steel and ironworker, plasterer and painter where its labour components are normally subcontracted or by direct labour as practised in the building construction works.

The information provided in this publication was generated from data collected from building projects registered in CIDB project database that have a contract value of more than RM3.0 million each. The 5 building categories of projects covered in this publication comprise high rise residential, low rise residential, administrative, industrial and commercial.

The data were collected through interviews with participating respondents who are experienced and well versed in costing and/or labour resources planning. The respondents are contract managers, quantity surveyors, cost estimators, engineers and project managers working in contracting firms having building projects in Kuala Lumpur, Selangor and Negeri Sembilan.

This publication is an effort by CIDB in fulfilling one of its functions to initiate and maintain a construction industry information system; CIDB has identified cost information on construction resources as one of the focus areas. This publication on labour costs and labour output information for the building complements other CIDB publications on cost information such as the Average Construction Material Prices and Construction Material Cost Index.
