Buildings are among the most expensive goods to produce, and a good chunk of the cost comes from the materials themselves.
But with an average of £12,000 (€16,000) a square foot (sq ft), the cost of plastic is less than the cost to build a house, which is around £16,600 (€20,700).
According to the Department of Business, Innovation and Skills, the average cost per square metre of plastic used in buildings in the UK is around 3.6p per square foot.
The cheapest way to buy plastic is to buy it from the pound, which means the cheapest price per square meter is around 6p.
But the pound has a tendency to rise against the euro and the euro’s value has been falling against the pound.
The most expensive way to purchase plastic is through a bank transfer, which costs around £15 (€18) and is a good option if you want to save a bit on the cost.
The average cost of building materials was £12.42 a square metre (sq m) in the last financial year, up from £11.78 in the year before, according to the Office for National Statistics.
A further £11bn was invested in building materials in the financial year.

The biggest price increase was in the construction industry, where the average plastic cost per sqft rose by £1,000.
The rise in the price per sq m was mainly driven by increased use of insulation and coatings and the construction of new buildings.
Source Homebuilding Industry: The Top 10 Products article The UK plastic industry is a very small one, with just one UK-based plastic producer, Plastic Industries, producing about 7% of the UK’s total plastic production, according a recent survey by the British Manufacturers Association.
The industry is in a transition phase, with only a handful of major plastic producers producing plastic for use in the housing market.
The sector was previously dominated by small firms in the north of England, with large firms such as Concrete Plus and the UK-listed BMO.
But, with the exception of a few small producers, the industry is now largely dominated by a handful, including BMO, ConcretePlus, Paddy Power, and the large London-based company, G4S.
The UK’s plastic industry was a major industry in the 1960s and 70s, but has been in decline ever since, according and research by the Irish government.
The survey, which also looked at other countries such as Japan, China, India and South Korea, found that more than half of the companies in the industry were in liquidation, while the other two-thirds were “collapsing”.
This is the first time that the industry has been studied since the early 1990s, and it shows that the country’s plastic boom is over.
The number of plastic factories in the country has declined since the late 1980s, with almost half of all production being taken up by a single company.
However, it is estimated that by 2020 there will be a third of the country being made of plastic.
The new poll also found that most of the remaining production in the area is going to be sold overseas, and that the proportion of the industry in operation is still very low.
The government’s Department of Energy and Climate Change has been monitoring the industry’s decline for some time, and has put pressure on the companies to get on board with reducing the amount of plastic in the environment.
“We have been pushing them to make sure that their production is going down in line with what we see in terms of their sustainability and they are taking action,” a spokesperson for the department said.
