Building Industry Price Guides An authoritative price guide is The Building Cost Information Service (BCIS) from the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (see Contacts). As well as an online rates database, BCIS publishes Wessex Price Books, which provide average price details from day rates for trades to all aspects of major building works. Similar price books include Spons, Griffiths and Laxton’s.
