BCIS would like to thank Holloway Squire Partnership Ltd, who recently submitted nine projects for analysis and indexing.

By submitting project data to BCIS, subscribers are contributing to the cycle of the data that ultimately benefits the BCIS community. Contributors also help to raise the quality of benchmark data in the construction sector and support the industry to drive efficiency. Data that is produced during the procurement process can be analysed and benchmarked, and made available for use in future project estimates.

Jon Squire, director of Holloway Squire Partnership Ltd, wrote that:

Holloway Squire Partnership value and use the BCIS cost data on a regular basis for informing cost budgets and advice. The comprehensive and easily used online data facilitate both high level and detailed analysis for a wide range of projects. Due to the valuable nature of the resource we happily provide the BCIS with details of schemes following tender returns to enable the database to be maintained with up-to-date information. This makes the process a beneficial synergy whilst using the database and providing information to it is simple.’

All projects require gross internal floor area, date on which costs were agreed and location if not included in the supplied documents.
