Construction Category SubCategory
Concrete Concrete Floor Slabs


Concrete construction unit cost for installation of a concrete floor slab, with a simple trowel or broom finish.

This cost covers the cost per square foot for any thickness of slab. Use it along with the cost per yard.

Unit Size

One square foot of slab area.

Labor Costs

We figure about 50 square feet per hour from a crew consisting of one skilled and one unskilled worker. This includes placement of reinforcing mesh and finished surface treatment for the concrete slab (screeding, floating, and a simple trowel or broom finish).

NOTE-- The cost of concrete and concrete placement for the slab is covered in the per yard unit cost. If the slab requires perimeter formwork, add that cost as a separate line item.

Material Costs

The cost includes reinforcing mesh and a bit of utility wire.

Hard Construction Costs, Typical

$1.22 per square foot of concrete slab

Suggested Quantity

Goldenseal calculates the concrete slab area, and uses it for this unit cost.

Source of Construction Pricing

Based on job cost data and crew timing from many slabs poured by Turtle Creek Construction under a variety of conditions and specifications.
