As you know, the global Covid-19 epidemic has wreaked havoc on construction costs.

We’re now facing unprecedented supply chain disruptions, skyrocketing demand, and raw material shortages. As a result, the input 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 BNi Electrical Costbook lets you take control of this chaos. It brings you up-to-date material costs and labor costs for every aspect of electrical work ... power distribution, network communications, lighting and more.

Now you can confidently estimate the cost of all types of electrical projects involving new construction and renovations in both commercial and residential buildings.

The 2022 BNi Electrical Costbook is the first place to turn, whether you're preparing a preliminary estimate, evaluating a subcontractor's bid, or submitting a formal budget proposal. It puts at your fingertips accurate and up-to-date material and labor costs for thousands of cost items, based on the latest national averages and standard labor productivity rates.
