Current practice on most contracts dictates that the engineer deals with engineering matters and the quantity surveyor covers the commercial aspects. As a result, engineers have become increasingly uneasy at setting rates, evaluating claims and of pricing work generally. This book provides engineers with a sound all round ability and commercial adeptness in price estimating. Author Trevor Holroyd draws on his experience of consulting and professional training in his latest book which will appeal to civil and structural engineers, surveyors, contractors, consulting practices, further and higher education establishments, students and local authorities.Using the CESMM 3 format for the bill of quantities, the estimator will complete the pricing of Classes B to ZZ inclusive on this basis. In a manual system the calculations will be carried out in a format similar to that used in Chapter 4 (Fig. 4) .
