Spon's Mechanical and Electrical Services Price Book 2023

Edited By AECOM AECOM Copyright 2023

    Construction cost inflation is at its highest level for decades. Global supply chains have been tested to the max as coronavirus and the war in Ukraine disrupted materials supply and raised energy costs, at a time when UK trade policy was in the midst of significant change. It’s been a perfect inflationary storm and prices of some materials have soared. AECOM’s overall building cost index has reached record highs. Demand is currently holding up but project viability is coming under increasing pressure and headwinds are strengthening.

    The definitive M&E price book with updates to approximate estimating and new engineering features including the implications of recent changes to building regulations on non-domestic buildings.

    SPON'S MECHANICAL AND ELECTRICAL SERVICES PRICE BOOK 2023 continues to be the most comprehensive and best annual services engineering price book currently available, providing detailed pricing information across the full range of mechanical and electrical services, together with higher-level costs for a diverse range of systems and different building applications.
