This manual presents detailed square foot costs for 65 buildings tailored specifically to meet the needs of today's architect. For each project you get a complete cost breakdown of the included systems, so you can easily calculate the impact of modifications and enhancements on your own projects.
The theme of this year's edition of Architect's Square Foot Costbook is mixed-use and multi-family. The positive outlook for multi-family construction predicts a steady two percent growth due to the rising demand for apartment units. Several of the case studies presented feature significant green building strategies as indicated by the LEED Rating system, encompassing recycled construction waste, recycled material content and re-use, recycled rainwater, bio-retention and wetland storm management, indoor environmental air quality, energy efficient lighting, hybrid HVAC systems, green roofs, and native or adaptive vegetation.
This manual also features:
Detailed costs to enhance the included case studies and allow the design professional to "mix and match" components to more closely follow their own design.
Regional modifiers to help take into consideration the geographic variables of local markets.
An extensive index to help you quickly find every component related to your project.
