Book Description

Captures real material, plant and labour costs from the UK’s major live rail, civils and highways projects.

SPON'S CIVIL ENGINEERING AND HIGHWAY WORKS PRICE BOOK 2021 from AECOM gives a full breakdown of labour, plant and material elements, with labour rates updated. Cost guidance is given at a number of levels, varying from the more general functional costs to detailed resource costing; and in conformity with CESMM4 and the Highways Method of Measurement, and updated to the CIJC wage agreement.

This 35th edition gives more items on shafts, tunnelling, drainage and water proofing – covering some brand new materials and methods. Notes have been added to tunnelling, viaducts, D-walls and piling under the output section. The book partially reflects costs and new ways of working resulting from the Covid-19 pandemic.
