How do you update your prices?

We use a range of sources to ensure our prices are up-to-date, accurate and reliable.

The prices of plant hire and materials are sourced from a range of manufacturers, merchants and suppliers, as well as indices, and are intended to represent a UK-average. For the 2023 editions of the price books, these are current at third quarter 2022.

Our price books include a section on location factors so estimates can be made more accurate based on the location of the project.

Our labour price calculations incorporate current wage agreements provided by the Construction Industry Joint Council (CIJC), the Joint Industry Board for Plumbing and Mechanical Engineering Services (JIB-PMES), and the Building and Allied Trades Joint Industrial Council (BATJIC).

We also provide current figures for relevant charges such as Landfill Tax.
