PLANNING OF FARM STRUCTURES
a) Farm houses: Dwellings for operators, retired parents, relatives, workers with families.
e) Bill of Quantities: The aim of quantity surveying is to provide an accurate bill of quantities, that is a list of the amounts of all materials and labour necessary to complete a construction project. See example in Note Bk.
i) Straight line method: Assumes that depreciation cost is constant for all years.
Depreciation cost = Initial Cost - Final Cost
Service life in years
Assuming the total cost of erecting a building is $ 20,000 and the estimated age is 20 years, the depreciation cost per year is
$ 20,000 - 0 = $ 1,000 per year
Note: Final cost or salvage value is the final value of the building when it is no longer viable for farm structure and can be assumed as zero or 5 to 10 % of the construction cost.
The method used for computations of returns on investment for open-sided and tunnel-ventilated broiler poultry buildings in Trinidad is summarised below and the calculated values are stated in Table 3 for all the buildings.
of building for the tunnel-ventilated buildings and 0% for the open-sided buildings.
Tax and insurance (TIS) were calculated at 0.5% of the cost of the house per annum. Profit was calculated as:
