This unique publication provides the only detailed, multinational guide to the cost of construction work across Africa.

Thirteen chapters cover individual countries (Algeria, Cameroon, Chad, Côte d'lvoire, Gabon, The Gambia, Ghana, Kenya, Liberia, Nigeria, Senegal, South Africa and Zambia) providing:

  • key data on the main economic and construction indicators
  • an outline of the national construction industry, covering structure, tendering and contract procedures, regulations and standards
  • labour and materials cost data
  • measured rates for a range of construction work items
  • approximate estimating costs for a range of building types
  • price index data and exchange rate movements against £ sterling and US $
  • addresses of public and private construction related organisations.

To facilitate country-to-country comparisons the book also includes a comparative data section and comparative regional information with figures given in national currencies, £ sterling and US $.

Extensively revised and thoroughly updated with additional reference to civil engineering and infrastructure projects, this book provides more supplementary information and includes costs based on locally-sourced materials to enable quick and useful comparisons. This new edition is the indispensible guide to African construction costs.
