First a little bit of background, I am European and married to a wonderful Peruvian wife. We have just returned from a visit to the inlaws in San Juan Lurigancho, Lima. While there we were discussing the potential for developing my wife's family home to have three or four floors over a ground floor and split each floor into two 70m2 apartments. I was pushing for one 120m2 family apartment on each floor, with 3/4 bedrooms, living and dining rooms, kitchen, laundry room, bathroom and ensuite; but I was vetoed as this is "not the way it is done in Peru" and it is more financially viable to either split each floor either into two smaller apartments or cram as many bedroom/bathroom/kitchenettes in as possible (which I completely disagree with both morally and as a construction and architecture graduate).
But anyway, I digress, back to basics; I'm looking to find out what is the general cost of laying a floor slab in Peru and what is the most common type of construction i.e. block and beam etc? There is already a completed ground and first floor with rebar sticking out of the columns at where level 2 would be (in classic Peruvian style
I would love to hear any advice that you guys may be able to give me and please let me know if there is any other information I can offer that might make this easier to answer.
Many thanks in advance,
