The 2022 Square Foot Costbook from Engineering News-Record puts right at your fingertips accurate square-foot costs - broken down by CSI division - for an incredible variety of recent building projects.

The global Covid-19 epidemic has wreaked havoc on construction costs.

We’re facing unprecedented supply chain disruptions, increased demand, and raw material shortages. As a result, costs for contractors have soared nearly 13% overall.  Some materials are up by as much as 75%. The risk of losing money as the result of an inaccurate bid or estimate has never been greater.

The 2022 ENR Square Foot Costbook can help you take control of this chaos.

For 2022, each of the 34 cost models featured in the Square Foot Costbook from Engineering News-Record have been carefully reviewed by the professional estimators at BNi Building News to make sure they are based on the latest and most authoritative information available.

For 75 years BNi has been a trusted source of accurate pricing data.  And this year the research staff at BNi has gone the extra mile to make sure that every cost item in this book is accurate.

The cost models in the 2022 edition include a hotel renovation, two restaurants, several educational facilities (including a science complex and an athletics center), medical facilities, a new church and a church renovation, civic/municipal facilities, residential homes, an assisted living facility, a golf center and a funeral home renovation.

This invaluable estimating tool features:

  • Detailed square foot costs for each project -- all broken down by CSI Division and supported by a detailed narrative.

  • A newly-expanded section of over 600 regional cost modifiers -- so you can quickly and accurately adjust all costs to your local area.

  • Material and installation costs for over 6,000 items used in construction, all expertly updated to reflect the latest pricing data available, as well as the most recent prevailing wage rate data from the US Department of Labor.

The 2022 ENR Square Foot Costbook will ship to you as soon as it comes off the press this summer. But if you order now, you will immediately receive a link to download the digital eBook version.

The challenge of staying profitable in the face of wildly fluctuating costs will be with us for some time to come.  The ENR Square Foot Costbook can help you meet this challenge.
