It provides a full breakdown of labour, plant and material elements, with labour rates updated. cost guidance is given at a number of levels, varying from the more general functional costs to detailed unit costs, and in conformity with CESMM4 and the Highways Method of Measurement.

    This 32nd edition incorporates a general update of prices in consultation with leading manufacturers, suppliers and specialist contractors -- especially in line with changes in the labour force and devaluation of the pound:

  • Adjustments to the scope, range and detail of information help the user adjust unit costs with reference to allocated resources and outputs
