Book Description

This indispensable tool provides you with thousands of building assembly and component costs. With accompanying drawings, explanations, component breakdowns, and reference tables all within one easy-to-use format, you can quickly estimate a building's square foot cost and easily compare and price alternatives. You'll find separate reference aids with code requirements to assist you in budgeting any job, or in quickly checking a unit price estimate or subcontractor proposal. Tables of unit prices allow you to cost out virtually any combination of building components or assemblies in the logical sequence of how the building is built. Using the UNIFORMAT II numbering system as a guideline for consistent estimating and reporting, Means Assemblies Cost Data 2004 enables you to easily price and compare various building assemblies. Use the manual's complete examples and references to build your own assembly cost data file. The 2004 edition features: --All the building components required to develop accurate square foot cost estimates and verify unit price estimates. Diagrams, descriptions, specifications, and costs. --Costs to assist in making design/build budgetary decisions based on preliminary or conceptual information. --Updated reference information and cost planning guidelines. --Square foot costs for 58 most common building types. --Easy-to-use estimating forms and index. --City Cost Indexes and Location Factors for material and installation for more than 930 zip code locations in the U.S. and selected locations in Canada, (including How to Use information). --Access to Means engineering staff for technical information about the cost data.

5A quick way to an estimate.
By Sam Powell
The Assemblies Cost Data method is a reliable and fairly quick way to generate an estimate. This is especially helpful if you want to compare the costs of different construction types (i.e. steel, pre-cast, cast-in-place). However, I found that I still needed the information in the more detailed Construction Cost Data book to fill in missing items, like demolition, louvers, or ceiling insulation.

5Means Cost Assemblies is Super Info! A lot more than prices
By Amazon Customer
This book is great for those of us just starting out in construction - it breaks down each system so that you may price the pieces individually or as an entire system price.
It's really great if you don't know what you should be looking for in a complete system. For example, what goes into a stem wall - this book explains it, and then prices each individual part. Great resource!
