Estimating Manual For Building And Engineering Works.
Estimating is a core function of the surveyor. In order to provide accurate estimates, there is a need for reliable data by way of plant outputs, labour constants and material components. This book seeks to provide such data and other relevant information for unit rate building for building and engineering works to augment any other local work that might have been done earlier.
It also presents sample unit rates analysis of work sections in building and engineering works to aid readers in their practice.
Self-test exercises, mostly examination questions from the Ghana Institution of Surveyors on estimating, are also presented in the book.
Students, trainees, teachers, practitioners, suppliers, contractors and other users are expected to find this book helpful.
