Square-foot costs can vary widely, making them difficult to use for estimating and budgeting. But the 2021BNi Square Foot Costbook eliminates this problem by giving you costs that are based on actual projects, not hypothetical models.
In this cost book you'll find over 80 detailed square foot cost studies for:
For each building project you get a detailed narrative with background information on the specific project. This lets you put the cost data into context and make appropriate adjustments to your own projections. In addition, you'll receive unit-in-place costs for nearly 15,000 items and materials used in all types of construction. For each item, you can see man-hours, as well as labor/equipment and material costs, all clearly broken out.
The 2021 edition of the BNi Square Foot Costbook now includes Assemblies tables listing systems for commercial construction, each broken down by its respective unit price components. This new section helps simplify estimating by providing construction costs by assembly type, represented by the major categories designated by ASTM E1557-09.
Developed in partnership with Design Cost Data, and BNi Building News, this ready-reference Costbook also features illustrations of each building type, a guide to 43-year cost trends for inflation costs on building materials, plus detailed unit-in-place costs for thousands of items -- from asphalt and anchor bolts to vents and wall louvers.
