Brick by Brick: Unveiling the Secrets of Accurate Construction Cost Estimation

Navigating the labyrinthine world of construction can be challenging, especially when it comes to budget management. The keyword to unlock a successful, budget-friendly project? Accurate cost estimation!



Why Accurate Estimations Matter

In United States and Canada, where the construction market flourishes amidst stringent regulatory compliances, a misstep in construction cost estimation can ripple into a torrent of budgetary upheavals.

  • The year-on-year Consumer Price Index (CPI) in the United States surged to 307.026 points in August 2023, marking a notable acceleration compared to the 3.2% growth observed in the prior month. This increase exceeded market expectations, which had forecasted a more modest 3.6% rise, reaching a CPI of 306.976 points.


  • During their most recent meeting in September 2023, the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) maintained the current interest rates (5.50%) without any adjustments. In contrast, at their July 2023 meeting, the FOMC increased interest rates to a range of 5.25% to 5.50%. This move marked the 11th rate hike in the current cycle, a series of actions aimed at addressing and mitigating high inflation.


  • CBRE‘s exclusive construction cost index encompasses the three primary cost elements, offering a comprehensive gauge that also possesses predictive value for future cost escalations. Following two consecutive years of experiencing double-digit growth, CBRE anticipates a more moderate construction cost increase of 5.4% in 2023.
