Cost Estimating Manual for Water Treatment Facilities Reviews
Useful source of hard to find cost information. Presents a logical metohodology for putting total project costs together. I would have liked more discussion on how to use certain cost curves such as for pump stations? Is the capacity indicated per pump or per firm pumping capacity?
This document is a treasure. Component and assembly construction costs at your fingertips. Waiting for a companion piece for Wastewater treatment. Bravo
Beside not receiving the CD I found out that the book has a lot of errors. So, it is clear that Wiley cheated me unless you send me the CD with all the errors corrected. Send the CD content in a file attached to my email address.
