RSMeans data

North America’s leading construction cost database of materials, labor and equipment.

Data drives everything. But if it’s not organized in a way that is easily digestible and actionable, then it’s virtually useless. That’s why with RSMeans data from Gordian, we give you access to a comprehensive and precise collection of labor, material and equipment data and associated costs that’s also easy to understand. Plus, when you use our solution, we’ll keep track of costs for your city and 930 others across the U.S. and Canada, along with a wide range of other key information, including productivity rates, crew composition, and contractor’s overhead and profit rates. With our RSMeans data, you’ll have access to over 20 estimating data sets in Online, CD, book and eBook formats.

For nearly 70 years, RSMeans data, North America’s leading source of construction cost estimating information, has given owners, developers, architects, engineers, contractors and others the tools to project and control the cost of both new building construction and renovation projects.

Facility Owners

As a building owner or facility manager, it is crucial to understand the lifetime maintenance cost of your buildings, how much it will cost to build a specific building model in different locations, and if your estimates are accurate. Our RSMeans data is used extensively in our Job Order Contracting Core and Life Cycle Costing solutions along with RSMeans’ custom enterprise data solutions including Custom Built Datasets.

Architects, Engineers, Contractors

To help you make the most informed decisions for your project, we aggregate industry-wide data and organize it in a format that you can instantly access and that makes sense. From the preliminary budget to the detailed estimate, you’ll find the data and associated costs for all phases of your construction project.
