Spon's Civil Engineering and Highway Works Price Book 2008 is more than just a price book. It provides a comprehensive work manual that many in the civil engineering, surveying and construction business will find it hard to work without. It gives costs for both general and civil engineering works and highway works, and shows a full breakdown of labour, plant and material elements, with labour rates updated in line with the latest CIJC wage agreement.

Thoroughly comprehensive and structured to comply with CESMM3 and MMHW, the book includes prices and rates covering everything from highways to handrails, from manholes to mines. In a time when it is essential to gain 'competitive advantage' in an increasingly congested market, this price book provides instant-access cost information and is a one-stop reference containing tables, formulae, technical information and professional advice.

This 22nd edition, in its easy-to-read format, incorporates a general review throughout – notably with the restructuring of the highway works unit costs section to align with the latest revisions to the Manual of Contract Documents for Highway Works.

Plus the standard features you have come to expect from Spon’s Civil Engineering and Highway Works Price Book:

  • For budgeting: estimating principles, on-cost advice, method-related charges
