Anyone got a rough idea how much a builder charges to lay blockwork and how many blocks per square metre? That sort of stuff.  :thumbs:

You'd be lucky to get £9 a meter round here on site, so paying tax on that as well.

Im a bricky by trade and have a building and roofing business.
I look for £1 a block and £400 for a 1000 bricks and that's labour only working on a building site.
On a private job it depends on the work that needs doing.
If there's some good runs with the odd window and doorway I take the good with bad and am happy working on a price.
If there is loads of windows, corners to build, profiles to set up and mainly level work with loads of setting out then I will only work for day rates.
There is just over 10 blocks to 1m2.
