Overview

This three-part publication was based on a project to obtain, collate and analyse building services cost data relating to actual buildings and scheme designs. The aim was to develop typical costs for various buildings that can be used as reference cost benchmarks for a range of building services installations. These benchmarks can be used by clients and designers as targets for planning and monitoring costs and they permit comparison between installation types that would satisfy similar client requirements. Commentary is provided on cost data available from industry sources, their use and limitations and presents a protocol for recording cost information in a common format to promote future cost comparisons and benchmarking.

Part 3 provides a framework for recording cost information in a common format. It recommends a structure for a protocol that can be used for recording costs in a common format. The aim is to promote future cost comparisons and benchmarking. The protocol covers guidance and a framework for recording project core information, overall service costs, building services systems costs and subsystem costs and their design and installation details.

Part 1 is available here and Part 2 is available here.
