Estimate construction costs with our industry-leading unit price books for building estimating. With the constant flow of new construction methods and materials, it can be a challenge for Owners, Construction Estimators, Architects and Engineers to find the time to evaluate all the different cost possibilities. RSMeans makes it easy for you, tracking labor and material cost changes so you’ll always have the most up to date and reliable pre construction costing information at your fingertips.Our cost researchers keep track of the building costs for you, along with a wide range of other key information, including city cost indexes, productivity rates, crew composition, and contractor’s overhead and profit rates.
In light of the recent developments with COVID-19, we are closely monitoring and making appropriate changes to upcoming RSMeans data training classes. Check here for updates.
