For an undergraduate/graduate course in Construction Cost Analysis and Estimating offered in civil engineering, civil engineering technology, architectural engineering, and construction management programs.

Providing the very latest principles and techniques for the evaluation of construction design, this thorough guide emphasizes the importance of building strong analysis skills before proceeding to a study on estimation, and presents students with a balanced and cohesive study of the these two areas. It begins with four chapters devoted to 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. Appropriate for a variety of teaching situations and approaches-as well as different student academic levels and backgrounds-it contains a great number of practical exercises and problems throughout to give students opportunities to absorb concepts and hone their skills, plus adds interest and insight with realistic, open-ended case studies found in every chapter. Internet exercises are provided.
