Staying ahead of cost trends can feel like an uphill battle. Market volatility, geographical variations and the lag between project initiation to build introduces unpredictability in the total cost of construction projects. Working in uncertainty can lead to budget overruns, delays and decreased profitability, making it challenging to keep up. But what if there was a solution that could turn these challenges into opportunities for success? To ensure success in any project, you need the ability to anticipate changes and make informed decisions.

Turn data into actionable intelligence with Gordian’s new Data Insights – Cost Trends Dashboard, powered by RSMeans™ Data. Unveiled at their 2024 RSMeans™ Data Webinar, Gordian’s latest tool empowers organizations to gain more real time insight into shifting cost trends across construction categories and geographies – all within a single, visually digestible dashboard.

Gordian’s Data Insights – Cost Trends gives you a comprehensive view into historical construction cost trends, providing visibility into current cost movements. This allows you to strategically evaluate and adjust your estimates and budgets based on how prices have fluctuated in past, similar market conditions. By using a systematic, automated method of accessing cost trends, you have up-to-date insights at your fingertips, saving time, eliminating guesswork and enhancing decision-making.


What Can You Expect From Data Insights – Cost Trends?


  1. Go from guesswork to an objective approach       
    Leveraging past experiences for project budgeting and estimating is beneficial, but manual methods are error-prone and inefficient. A systematic, objective approach allows you to identify hidden patterns, understand trends over time and adjust estimates to align with current market conditions.    
  2. Granular insights across construction categories      
    Leveraging RSMeans™ Data, the Dashboard provides an aggregated, historical view of cost data in an intuitive design, giving you the ability to compare multiple levels of detail based on empirical figures. From overall cost trends to drilling down by cost components, including labor, material, equipment or at the task division level.
  3. Historical cost trends across geographies        
    Whether you are looking for local market insights or researching unfamiliar geographical markets, the Dashboard provides location-specific cost trends for nearly 1,000 North American markets so you can compare costs and benchmark across various locations. Uncover hidden patterns in historical cost data, providing a clear picture of trends over time, or pinpoint  current market conditions in nearby areas to determine where you can find cost savings on materials and project costs.
