What Are The Construction Rates In Jamaica? || Posted February 9, 2019

I'm going to be honest with you. I've been getting the questions from day one, and more so over the last few months.

But without an intricate understanding and appreciation of the building and construction industry, I 'kinda - sorta' left it for later.

And of course, you and I know that what is left for later, meaning not a priority, rarely gets done :-(

But today I have good great news for you!
Your questions answered!

And the questions ranged from...


  • How do I get a copy of the parish council rate sheet?
  • Do you have a copy of the rate sheet for construction in Jamaica?
  • Where can I find a copy of the master builders wage rates?
  • What are the construction industry trade rates?
  • Is there an independent contractor rate sheet in Jamaica?
  • Can you share a rate sheet for construction in Jamaica?
  • What are the current construction rates in Jamaica?


And the most recent from Junia, one of my faithful subscribers...

"Mr Wellesley can you send me or publish the rate sheet for construction workers. From time to time we having a tug an war over prices".

Yes, it took me some time and effort; from contacting industry players, making several phone calls - to several of these red-tape laced businesses, to eventually travelling to pickup the physical copy.

So yes, I've gotten it - the independent contractors rate sheet for builders in Jamaica 2018-2019!!


N.B. To my US readers, remember that the rates listed here are all in Jamaican dollars ($JA), so don't panic :-).

You can learn more about the Jamaica to US exchange rate here


In addition to latest rates for labourers and skilled workers, it includes the latest rates for:


  1. Lining out the building
  2. Laying blocks and bricks
  3. Digging of foundation
  4. Casting Foundation
  5. Excavation work
  6. Casting of columns
  7. Roughcast and granite
  8. Erecting columns
  9. Erecting Lintels
  10. Putting up cantilever, templates and arch
  11. Spanish wave
  12. Rendering wall and ceiling
  13. Spraying flooring
  14. Settle and dress flooring
  15. Layout and grout tiles
  16. Erecting staircase
  17. ... and a whole lot more!


Above that, rates are specially categorized (and detailed) for...


  • Steelwork
  • Sheds
  • Painting
  • Carpentry &
  • Roofing


I was particularly impressed as it includes rates for many of what I consider to be the non-standard and even diminimus stuff.
These include...


  • Profile Boards
  • Demolition of buildings
  • Gully basins
  • Sewer manholes &
  • Kerb and Channel.
  • It even includes rates for fitting toilet paper holder and soap dish in wall - everything is included!

Painting
by: Dwight

I was recently asked to do a painting job and was not sure how to price it. I remembered that I had heard about the master builders' rates so I looked it up. Have not done my calculations yet but this should be quite helpful. People love bawl dung price but I will have to start with something authentic and reasonable. thanks

Very helpful
by: Tracey

This price list guideline is most helpful. Another thing that I would like a price list for, is the cost of materials. Do you happen to have a list of the current material costs involved in building a home? I would be most grateful.

EDITOR'S NOTE:
You are welcome.

Here is the price list:
