Based upon the most accurate and current data for material and installation costs, labor and equipment rates
By Midwest Book Review
Creating a profitable bid and coming in at or under budget require an expertise in figuring out reliable construction costs. This process of economic evaluation is one that all architects, contractors, and engineers must master as a fundamental aspect of their professions. The newly published 2009 Edition of the "ACE Guide To Construction Costs" is based upon the most accurate and current data for material and installation costs, labor and equipment rates, and adjusted allowances for overhead and profit margins. Thoroughly 'user friendly', this instruction manual break down unit and summary costs for all categories of structures and is organized in accordance with the 16 category CSI Masterformate ranging from general requirements and site work to furnishings and equipment, and which is the American construction industry standard. Very strongly recommended as an essential, core reference for architects, contractors, and engineers, the "ACE Guide To Construction Costs" will enable them to develop budgets, calculate change orders, prepare formal bids, draw up estimates, and be assured that every aspect and element of the process is covered.
