They also include a 'Preliminaries' section which lists most of the other costs such as professional fees, industry and government taxes and ancillaries such as scaffolding and power plant etc.

All pricing books are based on the industry standard method of measurement, or more recently new rules of measurement and civil engineering method of measurement where appropriate.

All the books listed have been in publication for over 40-100 years and are all well respected within the construction industry, they are the building industry bibles.
