UK-average prices with location factors to enable more accurate pricing regionally.
2020 edition updated with expanded sections, including on windows, doors and roofing.
Includes a detailed section on local authority grant-aided construction works. Most repair and alterations work is estimated on a specification only, or plan and specification without bills of quantities. Costs depend very much on the size of the job and distance from workshop. The repair sections are designed for the pricing of repair, adaption and conversion work and the prices are based on the average conditions under which the work may be carried out.
If the reader is unfamiliar with the use of pricing books, then reading the introductory section is recommended as a help to understanding the approach that has been taken.
Hutchins also has advice on preliminaries which can only be priced when specific circumstances are factored in, including site administration and security, water, lighting and power for the works, temporary arrangements for telephones, accommodation, and traffic regulation.
Although it has been superseded by SMM7 and more recently by NRM2, Hutchins is still updated in accordance with SMM6, the 6th Edition of the Standard Method of Measurement, due to its continued popularity and comfort of use among our readers.
The measured unit rates are shown as both net and gross pricing levels which allows for a 10 percent profit which can also be altered according to your requirements.
