Since 1958 Design Cost Data has been the #1 publication devoted to actual square foot building costs. DCD is based upon the philosophy that actual buildings, when coupled with up-to-date cost indices, are the most reliable basis for future building costs. Each issue of DCD contains real projects from around the nation and their final cost to build along with an architectural statement, building manufacturers, and pictures and plans.
DCD maintains the DCD Archives™, an archive of over 1,500 actual projects featured in DCD online at DCD.COM. The following cost guides have been compiled from projects archived in the
DCD Archives™ and escalated to the month and year of the DCD publication date and to a historical location factor of 1.
The DCD Archives™ is an interactive database for preliminary cost estimating, cost modeling, ‘what if’ scenarios, and cost research. The
DCD Archives™ is a DCD subscriber bonus and can be accessed anytime with a subscription to Design Cost Data. For more information call 800-533-5680 or access the
