What are the Spon's Price books?

UK construction supply chain firms face an array of risks going into 2021 as fallout from the COVID-19 crisis – not least the effect of social distancing rules on site productivity. But underlying construction demand remains broadly in place for the expected medium-term.

SPON’S ARCHITECTS’ AND BUILDERS’ PRICE BOOK 2021, compiled by AECOM, still provides the most accurate, detailed and professionally relevant construction price information for the UK. Its unique Tender Index , updated through the year (2015 = 100), gives an ongoing reality check and allows you to adjust for changing market conditions. Although it suits a wide range of project sizes, this is the only price book which sets out a detailed cost base for contracts exceeding £4,000,000 in value. 

As well as it's annual overhaul of prices, several new items have been added, including:

  • a London fringe office cost model
  • a higher education refurbishment cost model
  • Pecafil® permanent formwork
  • and an expanded range of cast iron rainwater products

along with the standard features you have come to expect from SPON’S ARCHITECTS’ AND BUILDERS’ PRICE BOOK:

  • 20,000 prices for the most frequently specified items, the majority with labour constants and detailed build-ups
  • Hundreds of alternative materials prices for the more unusual items
  • Detailed guidance on wage rates, daywork, cost limits and allowances, property insurance and professional fees, plus useful formulae, design criteria and trade association addresses
