New Code of Estimating Practice: The Chartered Institute of Building.
Developments in technology and the globalisation of supply chains have changed our industry in ways that were unimaginable a generation ago, and they continue to shape our industry and challenge us to find new ways of working.
The modern construction project is often a complex undertaking that depends on a highly skilled international workforce, access to products and services from around the world and the expertise to co-ordinate and manage a process that is, by its nature, risky.
For a construction company, the consequences of getting it wrong can be catastrophic. Now, more than ever, there is a need to understand why projects go wrong and to act to ensure that lessons learned are applied to future projects.
Understanding how the price and performance risk inherent in construction projects is managed is key, and this means looking more closely at the process of estimating and tendering.
This New CIOB Code of Estimating and Tendering Practice examines that process and provides best practice guidelines for those involved in procuring and pricing tenders for construction works both in the public and private sectors. The principles that it describes are applicable to any project regardless of size or complexity.
