The beginnings of recovery? Some materials costs are rising, and so are direct labour costs. Spon's Architects' and Builders' Price Book 2014 gives you the total picture. Spon's Architects' and Builders' Price Book 2014, compiled by Davis Langdon, still provides the most accurate, detailed and professionally relevant construction price information for the UK. Its unique Tender Index, updated through the year, gives an ongoing reality check and allows you to adjust for changing market conditions. Although it suits a wide range of project sizes, this is the only price book which sets out a detailed cost base for contracts exceeding GBP3,500,000 in value. NRM1 and NRM2 are used instead of SMM7R as the measurement standards throughout. As well as an overhaul of prices, over 300 new items have been added to Spon's Architects' and Builders' Price Book 2014.
