This book is for builders who's work is primarily constructing house extensions of either single, or two stories with standard estimates for 2-5 metres deep by 2-9 metres wide.
Created specifically for the busy builder or construction professional, this book makes pricing quick and easy by providing the user with no less than 256 standard estimates of varying size and construction. Most conventional price books give unit rates for measured work, however the majority of smaller builders do not estimate this way.
Instead they simply break the building down into sections, or elements and calculate the total cost of the foundations, walls, roof etc.
The book gives the cost of each building section, or element and provides standard estimates priced in sections for a range of traditionally constructed building extensions of various types and sizes.
Estimating for Small Works 2021 continues to be the 'must have' book for estimating and pricing of domestic sized extensions and loft conversions up to approximately £100,000.
The chapter on Alteration work provides an extensive selection of rates for alteration work and includes a fully priced estimate for a roof space/loft conversion.
The building sections, or elements used are: Substructure Frame Upper floors Roofs Stairs External walls External doors and windows Internal walls and partitions Internal doors Wall finishes Floor finishes Ceiling finishes Fittings and Furnishings Services Site works Drainage Manholes alterations to existing works
