A companion to the QCR, providing a local perspective for construction costs
What is a city market insight?
A companion to the Quarterly Cost Report (QCR). Our QCR is a publication where we compare the costs of construction in 12 U.S. cities and 2 Canadian cities on a quarterly basis, indexing them to show how costs are changing in each city, as well as against the costs of other locations.
The city market insight takes a deep dive into:
- what cost considerations to watch out for,
- what cost drivers are likely to affect material prices,
- a comparison of local versus national market trends, and
- forecasts for escalation
