Welcome to DCD, home of the number one construction magazine!
Welcome to DCD.com!

   Design Cost Data is the cost estimating magazine for design and construction, and is the largest provider of historical construction cost for the purpose of preliminary cost estimating and cost modeling in America. Established in 1958, DCD is unique among publications servicing the construction marketplace as architects, specifiers, builders, and developers use DCD and the actual construction costs it publishes as benchmarks for preliminary cost estimating.

DCD subscribers can access over 1,500 actual projects, as seen in DCD, in the DCD Archives™ for early construction budgets, cost modeling, estimate validation and more. Subscribers select a similar project to the one they are building and retarget to their new bid date and location. A new cost model is created reflecting an updated square foot cost broken out in the popular CSI MasterFormat™ divisions.

Design Cost Data magazine and the DCD Archives™ are the construction cost references you need. The projects archived in the DCD Archives™ are separated in over 100 different building types (schools, medical offices, libraries, churches, assisted living, and more) to make it easy to find just the right project for your new cost model. The DCD Archives™ is updated with each issue of DCD and includes cost escalators through 2018 and over 600 regional modifiers to provide reliable cost models. The DCD Archives™ is unique to the industry as you are benchmarking your new projects on real, historical construction costs.
