Efficient, accurate costs from across industry CESMM4 Carbon and Price Book has been compiled using the very latest update of the Civil Engineering Standard Method of Measurement (CESMM4).
The Price Book incorporates the newest technologies without the limitations of the form of contract or the National Standards. CESMM4 updates are reflected throughout each section within the Price Book.
Additionally the extent, depth and layout of vital information within the publication ensures that you can quickly and confidently achieve rapid responses to estimate requests, accurate replies to tender submissions and efficient contract administration.
The continuation of embodied carbon values provides an important understanding of the carbon cost of your projects, allowing you to compile tenders with a genuinely competitive edge and realistically assess the carbon impact of your standard working practices. Unique Price and Carbon data for your CESMM4 project - This book fully conforms to the very latest update of the Civil Engineering Standard Method of Measurement.
Created with cross-industry collaboration - This project was coordinated between the ICE, Mott MacDonald and BRE to garner the very best industry expertise. First look at BRE carbon data - Control the carbon cost of your project with the fully auditable and robust data from BRE, released to the industry here for the first time. Double your efficiency with no extra training - Unlike other price books, CESMM4: Carbon & Price Book 2013 enables you to fully integrate your carbon and cost calculations.
Complete with new technologies - CESMM4 Carbon & Price Book 2013 includes all major updates and improvements particularly in the concrete, roads, tunnelling and rail track classes.
The CESMM4 Price book should be on the desk of every contractor, specifier, estimator, engineer, quantity surveyor and project manager actively involved in civil engineering work. It is the only definite guide to publish estimates of cost and carbon emissions, allowing reference to both to enable an optimum design solution.
The price information is complemented by sections covering approximate estimating, plant hire rates and outputs, economic forecast, the Working Rule Agreement, professional, government and trade bodies and, finally a section of technical information useful for those preparing costs and quantities for civil engineering projects.
It is generally accepted in the construction industry that unit costs for civil engineering works are more profoundly influenced by such factors as scale, nature and characteristics of the project than the similar unit costs for building works.
Consequently the build up of the civil engineering rate is of particular significance and it is for this reason that the book provides detailed information on how the rates have been derived in order to enable users to make adjustments to allow for the various factors affecting a particular project.
CESMM4 Carbon and Price Book remains the most up-to-date source of price information available for the civil engineering industry.
