To use this calculator, fill in the necessary parameters:

**Pile Length:**Enter the length of the pile in meters.**Pile Width:**Enter the width of the pile in meters.**Pile Depth:**Enter the depth of the pile in meters.**Material Cost per Cubic Meter:**Enter the cost of the material per cubic meter in dollars.**Labor Cost per Meter Depth:**Enter the labor cost per meter depth in dollars.**Number of Piles:**Enter the total number of piles.

Then, click the “Calculate” button to get the total cost for the piling project.

## How It Calculates the Results

The calculator uses the following steps to calculate the total cost:

- Calculates the volume of a single pile using the formula:
*Length × Width × Depth* - Determines the material cost for a single pile using the formula:
*Volume × Material Cost per Cubic Meter* - Computes the total material cost using the formula:
*Material Cost per Pile × Number of Piles* - Calculates the labor cost for a single pile using the formula:
*Depth × Labor Cost per Meter Depth* - Computes the total labor cost using the formula:
*Labor Cost per Pile × Number of Piles* - Adds the total material and labor costs to get the final total cost.

## Limitations

This calculator assumes the piles have a simple rectangular cross-section. It does not account for varying cross-sections, additional project-specific costs, or regional cost variations. For more precise estimates, consulting a professional is recommended.
