Summary: Construction cost changes are inevitable. In fact, from 2019 to 2020, 34% of construction costs have changed by more than +/- 5%. This cost volatility is enormous for the people who plan, finance, build and maintain the facilities and infrastructure communities depend on. It’s vital these professionals understand how and why construction costs have changed over the last year.

Watch this on demand webinar to hear two of the minds behind Gordian’s RSMeans data discuss how the costs of steel, concrete and wood will change in 2020. They’ll also discuss why construction costs change, a few additions to RSMeans data for 2020 and more!
