"An essential reference for everybody concerned with the calculation of costs of mechanical and electrical works." – Cost Engineer

Market conditions remain unfavourable and construction output and orders obtained by contractors continue to decline. The costs of some items have increased, but profits and overheads have fallen and are expected to fall further in the coming year. But price changes have varied across the industry.

Spon's Mechanical and Electrical Services Price Book 2010 continues to be the most comprehensive and best annual services engineering price book currently available, providing detailed pricing information across the full range of mechanical and electrical services, together with higher level costs for a diverse range of systems and different building applications.

This year’s book provides an overhaul of the unit rates and composite rates. It contains a new section on the Façade System in engineering features which explains the relationship between the building envelope and the provision of cooling

And the new series of topical features continues, focusing on subjects which affect M&E costs within buildings; and design schematics are provided for several M&E services.
