Now you can quickly and easily estimate the cost of renovations, repairs and new construction for all types of facilities and commercial buildings. The BNi Facilities Managers Costbook 2014 is the first place to turn, whether you're preparing a preliminary estimate, evaluating a contractor's bid, or submitting a formal budget proposal. It puts at your fingertips accurate and up-to-date material and labor costs for thousands of cost items, based on the latest national averages and standard labor productivity rates. What's more, the BNi Facilities Managers Costbook 2014 includes detailed regional cost modifiers for adjusting your estimate to your local conditions. It features:
- Material costs for thousands of items based on current national averages (including allowances for transport, handling and storage).
- Labor costs based on the prevailing rates for each trade and type of work, PLUS man-hour tables tied to each unit costs, so you can clearly see exactly how the labor cost was calcuated and make any necessary adjustments.
- Equipment costs -- including rental and operating costs.
- Square-foot tables based on the cost-per-square-foot of hundreds of actual projects -- invaluable data for quick, ballpark estimates.
With the BNi Facilities Manager's Costbook, you'll save yourself time and effort, while protecting yourself from hidden costs, cost overruns, oversights, and hazardous "guesstimates."
Facilities contain unique items that affect their construction costs. Protect yourself and your estimate by making sure each of these specialized items are included in the costs of your renovations, repairs, improvements and construction.
