In today’s world, due to rapid urbanization, shortage of skilled labour, increase in housing demand and shortage of houses has led the construction industry to look for alternative methods of construction which saves time and money, need less amount of labour and are easily available for all. The construction of residential housing accounts for 75% of the total construction in India since the construction industry is the 2nd largest industry after agriculture. Construction industry accounts for 8% of India’s GDP. In this project, we have compared various parameters between Aluminium Formwork (brick-less) Method and Conventional Method such as carpet area, wall thickness, estimation, quantity and rate analysis by performing calculations on construction of an apartment from Uppernest Mulund (E), Mumbai, Maharashtra, India.
