Estimating and Tendering for Construction Work takes a practical approach to estimating from a contractor's point of view. It explains the estimator's function within the construction team, the techniques and procedures used in building up an estimate, and how to convert an estimate into a tender.
This new edition has been written to reflect recent changes in procurement. These include the recommendations of Sir Michael Latham in his 1994 report 'Constructing the Team,' and new terminology introduced by the 6th edition of the CIOB Code of Estimating Practice 1997.
The role of the estimator is covered in detail, from early cost studies through to the preparation of the estimate, and the handover of construction budgets for successful tenders. The book includes copious examples of an estimator's data sheets and pricing notes and deals with co-ordinated project information. The chapter dealing with computer-aided estimating had been completely re-written to reflect the advantages of electronic exchange of information.
This textbook has been written for higher technician and degree students and for those studying for their professional examinations in construction.
