The Irish Concrete Federation commissioned Irida Consulting to identify the cost of concrete and quarried materials used by builders in the course of the construction of new houses.

The report was prepared in April 2016 with updated information on wholesale prices included in November 2016.

The report demonstrates that the concrete and quarried materials used in the construction of a standard three bedroom semi-detached house in Dublin accounts for less than 5% of total build costs and that the industry’s impact on overall house building costs has been far less than other cost factors.
