As a result, costs for contractors have soared.  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.

But with the 2023 ENR Square Foot Costbook, you can take control of this chaos.

For 2023, each of the 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 over 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.
