Spon's Civil Engineering and Highway Works Price Book 2014 gives costs for both general and civil engineering works and highway works, and provides a full breakdown of labour, plant and material elements, with labour rates updated in line with the latest CIJC wage agreement. Beyond prices, it can be used as a comprehensive work manual for the UK’s civil engineering, surveying and construction business.
Use the access code inside the back cover of the book to get set up with internet access to this edition until the end of December 2014. We now provide SPON’S Online, a versatile and powerful online data viewing package, which replaces the estimating software and ebook of recent years.
This 28th edition incorporates a comprehensive review throughout:
- Labour rates have increased at the beginning of the year and further increases are expected in 2014 – make sure you register for quarterly updates to keep up to date with wage increases!
- Pressure is being maintained on material costs with a slight fall in materials prices as some of the rail projects come on stream
Structured to comply with CESMM3 and MMHW, the book includes prices and rates covering the key items that make a general civil or highway construction project – from gabions to gutters and painting to PVC pipework. 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.
