pre mix concrete should be closer to 1500 baht Cu m. And maybe a small delivery fee. You need to check the quality though. I have had it come with only rock and cement, no sand, and also sometimes not mixed properly. You may need to stop them, and speed up the agi to mix it. One load, all the stone came first, and then the slurry at the end, and we had to add our own stone by hand.

did you consider spraying the underside of your internal ground floor with the PU Foam insulation ? but I think your ground floor is in direct contact with the earth ?

my house will be raised on stilts/columns, therefore will have an air flow of ambient air temp moving around it. I've seen some pictures where ground floors are not in direct contact with the earth, ie. raised on columns, transfer heat from the ambient temp through the floor material ie. concrete into the house.

No, that would be ridiculous.

It's the KlipLok system. The clips are attached to the roof steel and the roofing sheets are pressed into place on top of the clips.

That's rate of reflectance. Metal retains less heat than tiles so overall white metal is better than white tiles.

I can't remember where it was, somewhere online I found with Google.
It gave as material metal as the best for NOT retaining heat and white as the best colour for reflecting heat so I put 2 and 2 together and got 22.
