Solutions and data for enterprise-level projects

We know that scheduling and planning work for federal agencies using capital budgets can be extremely demanding. Strict regulations, heightened security, firewalls, serial projects and capital budgets all create the perfect storm for a stressful situation when it comes to procuring work on a regular basis. That’s where we can help. We’ll work within your budget restraints by starting the work quickly, and by providing the data that is imperative for you to make efficient, effective decisions for the hundreds of projects that are in motion at any given time.

Because work for Federal agencies must be planned years in advance, we customize our enterprise predictive data to work with your schedules and budgets. Using RSMeans data from Gordian, we give you the most current, accurate and localized data for your capital project. Leveraging our vast engineering expertise and RSMeans data, the most trusted construction cost estimating source for over 70 years, our custom solutions will deliver a broad range of customer-specific information, to meet your specific needs.

We understand that you may have unique conditions or requirements that demand custom cost data research or engineering to support cost planning and management. We supplement our standard offering with custom cost data sets based on your building standards and specifications. We can also develop custom area cost factors or city cost indices for locations in the U.S. and internationally.
