A completely new version of the Steel construction – Cost supplement has been produced to provide construction professionals with the latest information on costing structural steelwork.
Just as the design and construction process has to be just right, it is also important that the costing process is undertaken properly if correct decisions are to be reached. The steel sector recognises the importance of achieving accurate cost estimates and has invested in providing guidance and assistance to the construction professionals involved for some years. One result is Costing Steelwork, a regular series from AECOM, BCSA and Steel for Life published quarterly in Building magazine that provides guidance on costing structural steelwork. Costing Steelwork examines the process of cost planning through the design stages, highlights the key cost drivers for different sectors and provides building type-specific cost comparisons. It also includes a cost table, which indicates cost ranges for various frame types that can be used at all design stages to act as a comparative cost benchmark.
This Steel construction – Cost publication gathers together the first five issues in the series to provide comprehensive guidance across the five sectors covered by the study, namely office, education, industrial, retail and mixed-use buildings with costs current as of Q1 2018.
