The purpose of this page is to let you have a case study I have just prepared … so far without solution as I am still working on it!

Download the case study from the link below and prepare an Excel spreadsheet template to cope with all of the calculations needed to prepare for building a wall.


How many bricks, how much sand and cement, how many tiles … what will it all cost?

Suppose something changes, such as the cost of bricks or the design: how will your template cope with that?


This is a real case and if you want to share your efforts with the rest of us, make a comment here and we will discuss how you can send it in.


I hope at least some of you will try this and in a week or so I will make my template available here!
