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 Facilities Manager's Costbook lets you take control of this chaos. It brings you up-to-date material costs and labor costs for building materials, furnishings, equipment, HVAC, plumbing, electrical, landscaping, and much more

The 2022 BNi Facilities Manager's Costbook is the first place to turn, whether you're preparing a preliminary estimate, evaluating a contractor'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. What's more, the 2022 BNi Facilities Manager's Costbook includes a newly expanded section of over 600 regional cost modifiers for adjusting your estimate to your local conditions.

The 2022 BNi Facilities Manager's Costbook features:

  • Material costs for thousands of items based on current national averages (including allowances for transport, handling and storage)

  • Labor costs based on the prevailing rates for each trade and type of work, PLUS man hours for each cost item, so you can clearly see exactly how the labor cost was calculated and make any necessary adjustments

  • Equipment costs -- including rental and operating costs

  • Square-foot tables based on the cost-per-square-foot of hundreds of actual projects -- invaluable data for quick, ballpark estimates

With the 2022 BNi Facilities Manager's Costbook, you'll save yourself time and effort, while protecting yourself from hidden costs, cost overruns, oversights, and hazardous "guesstimates." Facilities contain unique items that affect their construction costs. Protect yourself and your estimate by making sure each of these specialized items are included in the costs of your renovations, repairs, improvements and construction.

All data is categorized according to the CSI division format. This industry standard provides an all-inclusive checklist to ensure that no element of a project is overlooked. In addition, to make specific items even easier to locate, there is a complete alphabetical index.
