Reflecting the author's 50 years of experience in the heavy construction industry, this is the only book of its kind. It is comprehensive enough to integrate the basic principles of cost estimating and bidding in one convenient volume, and it identifies the organizational and analytical processes involved in implementing these principles. Focuses throughout on developing a competitive bid for acquiring a major heavy construction contract, performed under fixed price and time-commercial terms in today's competitive business environment. Explains and illustrates all key procedural steps essential to "setting up the estimate" that are specific to heavy construction projects. Explains in detail the various kinds of costs incurred by heavy construction contractors, along with the manner in which costs are typically displayed horizontally in the estimate. Discusses the vertical format of a bid estimate totaling to the final intended bid figure. Perfect for contractors who want to brush up on estimation skills, or for anyone who wants to learn more about the costs incurred in heavy construction projects.

Estimators need to understand the consequences of entering into a contract, often defined by complex conditions and documents, as well as to appreciate the technical requirements of the project. Estimating and Tendering for Construction Work, 5th edition, explains the job of the estimator through every stage, from early cost studies to the creation of budgets for successful tenders. This new edition reflects recent developments in the field and covers: new tendering and procurement methods the move from basic estimating to cost-planning and the greater emphasis placed on partnering and collaborative working the New Rules of Measurement (NRM1 and 2), and examines ways in which practicing estimators are implementing the guidance emerging technologies such as BIM (Building Information Modelling) and estimating systems which can interact with 3D design models With the majority of projects procured using design-and-build contracts, this edition explains the contractor’s role in setting costs, and design statements, to inform and control the development of a project’s design. Clearly-written and illustrated with examples, notes and technical documentation, this book is ideal for students on construction-related courses at HNC/HND and Degree levels. It is also an important source for associated professions and estimators at the outset of their careers.

The most current guide of its kind on the market, this essential book for today's construction managers and engineers provides the latest principles and techniques for the evaluation of construction design by presenting a balanced and cohesive study of construction cost analysis and estimation. Begins with four chapters on the analysis of labor, material, accounting, and forecasting—then systematically segues into the area of estimating, with in-depth discussions on how it applies to methods, work, and projects. Covers statistics for cost analysis, general cost analysis and bidding strategies for construction (i.e., bidding, estimate insurance, engineering economy, benefit cost, and life cycle), and the newest models and techniques for cost estimating. “Practical Applications” encourage field trips and communication through the internet, and a variety of interesting open-ended case studies actively engage readers in realistic scenarios and help develop critical thinking skills. Integrates an extensive array of exercises, qualitative questions, and problems, and limits math to algebra and introductory calculus. For professionals in construction, civil and environmental engineering, and architecture.

This book presents the theoretical background as well as best practice examples of estimating in heavy construction. The examples stem from practitioners in international large-scale construction projects. As distinct from other publications on estimating, this book presents specific numbers and costs are calculated precisely. In this way the book helps to avoid errors in the estimating of construction projects like roads, bridges, tunnels, and foundations.
