The DCD LEED® Square Foot Cost Guide

    Design Cost Data™ magazine includes a new Square Foot Cost Guide in each issue. These square foot cost guides have been assembled from projects in our database, the DCD Archives™ online at DCD.COM. These guides are provided to the industry by DCD as a benchmark for future building costs.
    DCD is based on the philosophy that actual buildings, when coupled with up-to-date cost indices, are the most reliable basis for future building costs. The buildings appearing in this guide reflect square foot costs that have been escalated to December 2011 and targeted to a historical location factor of 1 (escalate these projects and more online at www.dcd.com/subscriber login).
    After publication these cost guides reside at DCD.COM. Please visit DCD.COM for other sq. ft. building cost guides for Educational, Medical, Commercial and more.
