Over 12,000 unit prices provide
you with cost coverage for all aspects of construction -- from
sitework and concrete, to doors and painting.
The cost data is broken down into material and labor costs, to
allow for maximum flexibility and accuracy in estimating. You'll
find this data invaluable when preparing detailed estimates, bids,
checking prices, and calculating the impact of change orders. What's
more, you get detailed man-hour tables that let you see the basis
for the labor costs based on standard productivity rates.
This information is used for scheduling and when applying local
labor rates. There are also extensive
reference tables, providing supporting information, cost
derivations, man-hours, estimating tips, and other related

All data in the Costbook pages and Man-Hour tables is organized
according to the CSI MASTERFORMAT - the industry standard
numbering/classification system. The data is divided into the
16 divisions as shown below. The five digit numbers within each
division correspond to the MASTERFORMAT Broadscope designations.
Each section is further broken down into MASTERFORMAT Mediumscope
designations. These numbers, in most cases, are the same as those
used in architectural and engineering specifications.
The construction estimating information in this book is divided
into two main sections: Costbook Pages and Man-Hour Tables. Each is
organized to the 16 divisions of the CSI MASTERFORMAT as shown
below. In addition, there are extensive Construction Reference
Tables, Geographic Cost Modifiers, Square Foot Tables and a detailed
Sample pages with graphic explanations are included before the
Costbook pages, Man-Hour Tables and Square Foot Tables. These
explanations, along with the discussions below, will provide a good
understanding of what is included in this book and how it can best
be used for construction estimating.
