March 30, 2015

Greenville, S.C., March 30, 2015 – The Gordian Group released today RSMeans Online 6.0, the most significant upgrade of RSMeans estimating software since the company acquired the industry-leading construction cost estimating solution in mid-2014. RSMeans Online 6.0 offers users a variety of new cost data packages coupled with customization options to best meet their needs for planning, budgeting and estimating. For the first time online, users can create site-specific square foot models in minutes using RSMeans’ new customization tools to modify its more than 100 building models.

“RSMeans Online 6.0 demonstrates Gordian’s commitment to expand the product’s reputation as the premier source for construction cost estimating data,” said Greg Hanson, Gordian’s Vice President of New Business and Product Development.

Three levels of license agreements – Standard, Advanced and Professional – bundled with data packages are available to match users’ requirements for design, construction or facilities management. The license levels of RSMeans Online 6.0 offer increasingly greater levels of functionality and pricing information to ensure each user has access to the right tools for estimating virtually any size and type of construction project – both commercial and residential.

RSMeans Online 6.0 provides users increased flexibility, thereby shortening the time required to create customized estimates. A “My Favorites” feature enables users to tag and store frequently used units and assemblies for quick access. Two additional productivity enhancing features enable Advanced and Professional version users to customize assembly components and square foot cost models. New advanced reporting capabilities offer user-defined report templates for estimates with drag-and-drop report creation.

“The new features and interface of RSMeans Online 6.0 empower users to take estimation to the next level,” said Hanson. “Tailored estimation is made easier than ever before.”

Prospective users can enroll in a limited access 30-day free trial to test drive the new features and explore the 85,000 unit prices, 25,000 building assemblies and 42,000 facilities repair and remodeling items covering every category of construction.
