Costing data for condominium sewer

I'm hoping to understand the Bill of Quantity required to build a condominium sewer, focusing on quantities. That way, I can supplement this list of material requirements and associated volumes with local unit cost data, to get to a reliable cost estimate.

Kindly if you could share the information i will really appreciate.

Re: Costing data for condominium sewer?

Hi Edinah,

In order to help you better with your query, can you let us know what search methods you have used so far? Did a Google search bring up anything? I did a quick Google search and also searched in the SuSanA library ( www.susana.org/en/knowledge-hub/resource...publications/library ). Search for condomini as that would include the terms "condominium" and "condominial".
13 search results in the SuSanA library: www.susana.org/en/knowledge-hub/resource...title=&author=&year=

This document from 2005 has some costing data:
The Experience of Condominial Water and Sewerage Systems in Brazil - Case Studies from Brasilia, Salvador and Parauapebas
www.susana.org/en/knowledge-hub/resource.../library/details/441

You should also use the search terms "simplified" and also "non-conventional". (it's actually a hassle that we have so many terms for the same thing...)
There was this discussion forum thread:
forum.susana.org/conventional-sewers-sim...-simplified-sewerage

There was a document recommended from ps-eau from 2014:
Ily, J. et al. (2014). Non-conventional sewerage services - Methodological guide n° 7: When to choose this option, how to implement this solution. pS-Eau, France
www.susana.org/en/knowledge-hub/resource...library/details/2249

It also includes data on cost.

At the end of the day, you might have do the technical design for your particular situation (or get a civil engineer/consultant who can do it for you in case you haven't designed one before) to get the most accurate cost estimate.

Hi Edna,

Diagonal, a condominial company in Brazil has someone who speaks English. They should be able to help you with an estimate. www.diagonal.net

Re: Costing data for condominium sewer?

Thanks Muench we really tried looking for online data however most of the available literature did not have the costing data. In addition we really wanted to understand the design and functionality of the system before we could come up with our own since this sanitation technology has been tried in 2 cities in Kenya but on a very micro level scale. Thanks for the response, it was worth for our study
