Product Description

Review

'This is a very useful publication that is very clearly presented and easy to use. It should be a valuable tool for architects and engineers and should assist in the preparation of estimates of cost. The book is a valuable work of reference that I would strongly recommend to both practising professionals and students.'
Edward D. Mills, CBE, Hon.D.Litt., FRIBA, FCSD, FRSA

'The textbook lists a formidable array of standard forms building and civil engineering contracts together with the appropriate standard methods of measurement covering a very wide spectrum of building and civil engineering ventures. This in turn invokes an in depth knowledge of the synthesis of contract rates which is amply dealt with in this textbook.'
R.D. Wood, FRICS, Chartered Quantity Surveyor

'This well established estimating book has been fully updated and contains a wealth of cost data.'
ASI Journal

Format: Hardcover
This is the latest version of an old price book but it is still several years out of date. It does contain a good deal of information and data that does not change but it is not worth buying unless you have a very old version

One of the best estimating books for building construction 25 Mar. 2000
By Nathan Frenkiel - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Esitimating for building and civil engineeing works by Spence Geddes is by far one of the best estimating books. It is edited in a very useful way, it contains a lot of output which are very ueful for the average estimator. It also contains all the necessary inforamtion for all the overhead itmes for preparing a tender, like holding equipment, managment, rubbish removal, building permits etc.
All in all, a must have for every serious constructor.
An extreme disappointment 12 May 2007
By P. B. Clouston - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I cannot recommend this book. It is very basic, poorly laid out and the index is very poor. Just as an example, one of the many weaknesses is the poor treatment of plant depreciation. Three pages contain a very padded discussion of straight line versus Interest and depreciation methods without any discussion of their relative merits or fields of application. More seriously, there is no good data on the actual inputs to be used in the methods, eg economic life of plant etc. This is typical of the book, only the trivial aspects of estimating are covered.
