How to Calculate Construction Manpower

Nowadays, i usually get questions how to calculate manpower for construction. There will be 100 of methods for calculation i believe, however i usually use unit manhour methodology;

To calculate manpower for construction, firstly you will be in need of quantities. As per forecasted quantities you can able to calculate / analyse required resoures (man/machinary etc.). Write all quantities in one column and write unit-manhour to next column (what is unit man hour?see below related posts). When you have these two must requirements, distrubute the quantities as per your schedule. If you multiply this distrubution to planned unit manhours, you will have your manhour distrubution. Therefore you got your manpower distrubution chart.

I did not explained it very detailly, but you can ask your further questions as comments to this post.
