2021 RSMeans data Release

It’s time to unveil and analyze Gordian’s 2021 RSMeans data construction costs! The last year has been unlike any the industry has ever seen. The COVID-19 pandemic and the resulting economic fallout created widespread construction cost volatility in 2020. The price changes over the last year were enough to induce whiplash.  

Since January 2020:  

  • 57% of construction materials costs increased.
  • 82% of construction equipment costs increased. 
  • 98% of labor costs increased. 

That’s a ton of change over a few months. To help you make sense of it all, we’re hosting a special event where two RSMeans data insiders will examine what happened with construction costs in 2020 and fill you in on what’s new in the 2021 RSMeans data construction cost database. Plus, they’ll talk through how COVID-19 is changing construction estimating and look ahead to what RSMeans data and their combined experience tells them to expect for 2021.  Finally, they’ll answer the construction costs questions you’ve been dying to ask. 

Get the new year started right at the 2021 RSMeans data release!
