RSMeans released the 2004 editions of its Cost Data publications-available in both print and electronic CostWorks formats.

RSMeans, a product line of Reed Construction Data, released the 2004 editions of its Cost Data publications-available in both print and electronic CostWorks formats. RSMeans construction Cost Data books and software provide essential cost information for contractors, owners, architects, engineers, facilities managers, appraisers, and anyone requiring fast and reliable construction costs for estimating, budgeting, or verification.

The new 2004 editions of RSMeans cost books include its publication, Building Construction Cost Data, which has been updated annually for 62 years, as well as 26 other publications on commercial and residential construction. These annual references provide costs for new and remodeling construction, including specialties such as mechanical, electrical, plumbing, concrete and masonry, site work and landscaping, environmental remediation, and heavy construction.

CostWorks 2004 provides electronic access to 18 of the print cost data books. The software includes tools to search and organize cost data easily, create customized cost reports, create user-defined data, merge multiple cost lists, and add or adjust costs. CostWorks localizes costs to specific geographical areas for enhanced accuracy.

Along with the updated pricing of all of the thousands of line items they contain, the 2004 editions include new information and price changes for lumber, steel, asphalt, insulation, PVC, and trade labor costs. Also new this year, are more than 300 additional unit prices for green building construction components and for security materials and systems, as well as an important reorganization of the site work division.

Cost product customers also receive free access to RSMeans cost editors through the Estimating Hotline-and quarterly e-mail notifications of cost index and key materials updates.
