Book Description

The Estimator’s Pocket Book is a concise and practical reference covering the main pricing approaches, as well as useful information such as how to process sub-contractor quotations, tender settlement and adjudication. It is fully up-to-date with NRM2 throughout, features a look ahead to NRM3 and describes the implications of BIM for estimators.

It includes instructions on how to handle:

  • the NRM order of cost estimate;
  • unit-rate pricing for different trades;
  • pro rata pricing and dayworks;
  • builders’ quantities;
  • approximate quantities.

Worked examples show how each of these techniques should be carried out in clear, easy-to-follow steps. This is the indispensible estimating reference for all quantity surveyors, cost managers, project managers and anybody else with estimating responsibilities. Particular attention is given to NRM2, but the overall focus is on the core estimating skills needed in practice.

1European Reference Book
By Amanda M.
This reference book is for European cost estimates - which was not noted in the description. I was hoping for a quick reference that I could use for US, this was not it. I had to return.
