More than just a price book, SPON's Civil Engineering and Highway Works Price Book 2003 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.
