More than just a price book, SPON's Civil Engineering and Highway Works Price Book 2002 is a comprehensive, work manual that all those in the civil engineering, surveying and construction business will find it hard to work without. It gives costs for both general and civil engineering works and highway works, and shows a full breakdown of labour, plant and material elements.

Thoroughly comprehensive and structured to comply with CESMM3, the book includes prices and rates covering everything from beany blocks to well-pointing, from radio masts to coastal defence. In a time when it is essential to gain 'competitive advantage' over the competition in an increasingly congested market, this book provides instant-access cost information and is a one-stop reference containing tables, formulae, technical information and professional advice.

The Civil Engineering and Highway Works Price Book for 2002 comes with a 'free' CDROM that enables the reader to view the entire book on screen, cut and paste prices into other tender documents, export to other major packages, perform simple calculations, index search, produce estimate and tender documents, adjust rates and data. This complete package now means that Spon's is now better than ever and is a resource that civil engineers, surveyors and the construction industry cannot do without.

* For budgeting: estimating principles, on-cost advice, method-related charges
* For resource costings: labour costs, plant costs, material prices
