## How To Calculate Staircase Shuttering Quantity

In this post, I’ll show you a step-by-step process to calculate the required shuttering quantity for a staircase.

The calculation process of the staircase’s shuttering materials is almost the same as the calculation process of the slab’s shuttering materials.

Yet there is a little difference.

## How To Calculate Shuttering Quantity For Slab

In this post, you’ll learn how to calculate the required material for slab shuttering.

Depending on the availability, you can use a combination of various types of materials for your slab.

I’ll show you the method of calculating the shuttering materials. It’s upon you that require to decide which materials you’ll use.

So let’s learn the process.

## How To Calculate Shuttering Quantity For Beam

This is an easy guide on calculating shuttering quantity for beam.

In this step-by-step calculation process, you’re going to learn:

– How to study the beam layout drawing

– How to calculate the total length of beams,

And

– Based on the beam layout drawing, how to calculate the required shuttering materials.

So if you’re ready to go “all in” with beam shutting calculation, this guide is for you.

Let’s dive right in.

## How To Calculate Shuttering Quantity For Column

In this post, I’ll show you how to calculate shuttering materials for making column forms.

Either you are using steel shuttering or wooden shuttering, you can easily calculate shuttering materials for columns with this tutorial.

I use this process every time in my project whenever I need to calculate columns’ shuttering materials for purchase.

So, let’s learn the process without further ado.

## How To Calculate Shuttering Quantity For Footing

In this post, I’ll show you an easy process of shuttering calculation for footing.

Depending on the site condition of a building project we sometimes need to make concrete forms for RCC footings.

Sometimes, we make brick walls all around the footing that works as a form. In that case, you don’t need to calculate shuttering materials.

But if you need to make concrete forms with shuttering materials then it’s wise to use wooden shutters as it’s cheap and widely available.

I’ll show you a step-by-step process of shuttering calculation for footing.

At the end of this post, you’ll also learn the thumb rules for calculating shuttering materials for footings.

So, let’s learn the process.
