A construction cost estimating software.
RSMeans Data Online from Gordian is an online construction cost estimating software with a large construction cost database available in a variety of formats. The solution provides level of cost detail (unit price, assemblies, and square foot models), labor rates/wages, and includes estimate tools using this cost model data.
The construction estimating software helps plan your next budget by using as accurate construction costs as possible. By creating estimates with unit costs, assemblies, or square foot models, you’ll be able to validate unfamiliar costs or scopes of work, and also maintain existing buildings with schedules and detailed costs.
The Core tier of RSMeans Data Online provides reliable construction cost data along with the tools necessary to quickly access costs at the material or task level. Users can create unit line estimates with RSMeans data from Gordian and share them with ease from the web-based application.
The cost of RSMeans Data Online starts at $265/year for a single dataset in the Core package. The cost of the software is determined by how many datasets are needed and what package tier is required. The package tier determines the level of cost detail and the timespan of data available. There is a free trial available. There is no free version available.
Purchasing the full library dataset is the most comprehensive option and includes every individual dataset offered. This is the best value offered by RSMeans Data Online
I was asked to prepare preliminary budgets for the renovation of a non-profit’s facility, which allowed them to get the funding they needed for the project.
When we are considering a new market to develop, RSMeans data is our source for determining the costs relative to other markets where we have historical costs available.
We expanded our RSMeans data library to include remodels and interior design which has helped in our expanded services to clients, particularly with remodels and interior work.
We use RSMeans data to estimate MEP Infrastructure costs for construction and it has been extremely accurate at providing realistic budget pricing that we can trust and use to help our clients plan spending.
