Creative Control of Building Costs.
Hunt, William Dudley, Jr., Ed.
Architects and other authorities interested in cost control examine the importance and use of its methods and principles. They outline the major factors in design and construction that determine building costs. The discussions include those elements of maintenance, repair, and replacement that add to the cost of a finished building during its lifetime. Principles of law as related to costs are also defined. The authors also describe various methods of cost control currently in use, show how to use them, and suggest more sophisticated methods and combinations of methods. (TC)
