5More useful than Square Foot Costs alone
By mpb206
A little caveat, I don't actually own this version so I won't speak to it's pricing accuracy. I do however have the 2013 Square Foot Costs book, and the 2010 Light Commercial Cost Data. Having had a chance to review them both now, I find working with the Light Commercial book much more handy. Both books include simple costs, based on the project type (ie: church, warehouse, school, etc.) as well as square foot costs for common assemblies (Slab on grade with 6" stone and vapor barrier, Metal deck on steel joists and beams, etc.) but the Light Commercial book takes it one step further and breaks everything down in to the component materials, and organizes it based on the Master Spec. This is very handy when you can't find the exact system you need to price located in the assemblies section, or when working on a bigger project with a full spec book from the architect. Granted, it still doesn't replace getting actual material quotes, I think it allows you to be a lot more accurate than simply throwing out a square foot cost for an assembly. If I were buying a new 2014 book right now, I'd definitely get this one over the Square Foot Costs book...more info and lower price for some reason!
