Area
& Distance Conversion Calculators  if you require
a conversion for metres, yards, feet & inches etc. 

Sub Base
Calculator  this estimator will provide the
area in square metres (length x width) and the required compacted depth
and the estimator will provide the approximate quantity of crusher run
required for a consolidated sub base. 

Excavated
Material Calculator (Metric)
(also
known as bulking)  enter the length, width and depth of
excavation in metres. The results estimate will be given for the cubic
metres of resultant spoil. Includes quantity and tonnes of excavations for
sound rock, chalk, earth, clay, sand & gravel.
Or if you prefer Excavated
Material Calculator (Imperial)


Concrete
Calculator Readymix
(Metric) enter the length &
width in metres and the depth in millimetres and the estimator will work
out the total volume of concrete required for your project.

Concrete
Calculator Mix on Site  enter the dimensions
asked for and this will calculate the required quantities of sharp sand,
gravel (aggregate) and cement.

screed. Enter the dimensions asked for and this calculates individual
quantities for sand, cement, lime, plasticiser etc with many variables. 

Render/Stucco
Quantities Estimator  calculator for render.
Enter the dimensions in the yellow boxes and this will calculate the
approximate quantities required for external rendering including sand,
lime & cement etc.
