Proposals for general construction pricing
The Association has already drawn attention to the peculiarities of pricing in design-build schemes and the need to amend the road works pricing methodology. General construction estimate standards also do not regulate such features and therefore need to be changed.
In addition, the Guidelines for Construction Pricing tie the calculation of aggregate cost indicators to the resource method and approved resource norms, which does not meet the fundamental approaches to using this tool in more progressive road pricing.
The Association proposed draft regulatory amendments to the Ministry of Infrastructure on both of these issues.
