Construction Estimating Has Never Been So Convenient
Industry-leading Construction Cost Database Available in a Variety of Formats
Annual cost books have been in publication since the 1940s, providing construction costs for many project types and trades. The various print titles are a standard for quick reference of prices across North America.
RSMeans Data Online provides cloud-based access to the industry’s leading construction cost database and advanced features like square foot costs and Predictive Cost Data. Automatic quarterly updates ensure you always have access to the most current data available for construction estimating.
CostWorks was developed to give estimators an electronic toolset for referencing and manipulating the same construction costs found in our cost books. This is a popular choice for organizations that require shared access be deployed in their own environment.
