Construction prices rose over the last year by 5%, according to AECOM’s tender price index, with construction price inflation continuing to run above the long-run average. The main drivers are rising input costs. Producer price indices have moved up at a clip in recent quarters, with sharp increases in prices for materials and fuels consumed by UK manufacturers. Demand- and supply-side factors make the probability of short-term price falls very slim.

The world of construction is intrinsically linked with that of finance, from the procurement and tendering stage of projects right through to valuation of buildings. In addition to this, things like administrations, liquidations, mergers, take-overs, buy-outs and floatations affect construction firms as they do all other companies. This book is a rare explanation of common construction management activities from a financial point of view. While the practical side of the industry is illustrated here with case studies, the authors also take the time to build up an understanding of balance sheets and P&L accounts before explaining how common tasks like estimating or valuation work from this perspective. Readers of this book will not only learn how to carry out the tasks of a construction cost manager, quantity surveyor or estimator, they will also understand the financial logic behind them, and the motivations that drive senior management. This is an essential book for students of quantity surveying or construction management, and all ambitious practitioners.
