Why use RSMeans
construction cost estimating data?
Whether you are a contractor, owner, architect, engineer, facilities manager, or anyone else who needs a fast and reliable construction cost estimate, you'll find RSMeans cost data to be a highly useful and necessary tool. Because labor and material costs change often, last year's cost information is not a reliable basis for today's estimate or budget.
We keep track of the costs for you, along with a wide range of other key information, including:
• City cost indexes
• Productivity rates
• Crew composition
• Contractor's overhead and profit rates
We collect data from all facets of the industry and organize it in a format that is instantly accessible to you. From the preliminary budget to the detailed estimate, you'll find the data useful for all phases of construction cost determination.
