Unlike other building cost estimating resources, the 2018 DCR Mechanical/Electrical Square Foot Costbook breaks down the MEP divisions and itemizes the materials used, along with their costs, in actual projects.

It features 66 illustrated cost studies covering:

  • Various office buildings
  • Multi-residential housing
  • Municipal facilities
  • Public works projects
  • And much more

In addition, many of the cost studies in this book feature a variety of "green" technologies such as hydronic pipe, geothermal heating and cooling, solar water heating, and hybrid ventilation air handlers. It lets you instantly see exactly how MEP costs relate to overall building costs, and how much they can vary from one project to another.

Whether you're an architect, general contractor, or specialty contractor installing electrical systems or doing HVAC work, you'll find this to be an invaluable resource.

By purchasing this book, you will also receive the 2019 Edition on a no-risk free trial basis.
