Cost Benchmarking

With best practice methodologies and a reliable source of comprehensive cost data, we can show you how you are performing against similar projects or organisations.

An integral component of benchmarking costs is an understanding of the key cost drivers. BCIS host a cost database with over 20,000 construction projects which places us in a unique position to provide cost benchmarking services. Unlike many other consultants we have no conflict of interest and our independence provides confidence and trust.

We regularly compile detailed benchmarking studies for the UK and international locations.
