Quantity Surveyors, Architects and Builders are amongst the plethora of professionals who rely on the construction cost data found in the Rawlinsons Australian Construction Handbook and Cost Guide.
Since 1984, Rawlinsons (W.A.), Australia’s oldest Quantity Surveying firm, have provided Australia with the most trusted source of construction cost data, with their comprehensive building cost reference books. The first of their kind, the publications were formulated to provide industry professionals an extensive building cost reference book that embraced all sections of the construction industry.
The enormous amount of data contained in these books is researched from various sources Australia wide, taking into consideration labour and material price fluctuations as well as plant and equipment, advances in technology, changes to building codes, new products, market conditions, changing procurement procedures and local climate and environment requirements. The data collected is then verified and coordinated to calculate benchmark, elemental and comparative and detailed cost items that make up the thousands of rates in the publications.
As Australia’s most recognised Quantity Surveying firm, Rawlinsons (W.A.) has been in operation for 65 years. The unique combination of their long standing in the industry, employing some of Western Australia most highly regarded Quantity Surveying professionals, and, as the researchers, compilers and publishers of the extensively circulated Construction Cost Guides, cements Rawlinsons (W.A.) as the industry leader in accurately valuing building assets.
The 2019 editions of the Handbook and Cost Guide will be available in January 2019.
