MossCost routinely tracks changes in various materials, labor and fuel cost markets and monitors the effect on a number of construction models. This exclusive information is available to MossCost Index newsletter subscribers and on the www.mosscost.com website.
Historic cost data is no guarantee of future trends and no construction project is identical. We advise users to seek expert advice when budgeting escalation allowances and market predictions for a specific project.
Cost vs. Price ... The indices are COST based and not PRICE based. The indices take no account of fluctuations related to changes in fee and profit included in bid prices resulting from demand characteristics of the construction market.
The Cost Models ... Cost data is presented in two formats: the MossCost Size Index and the MossCost Frame Index. Each is a composite of various building models and takes into account principle materials, labor and fuel cost components. Indices are normalized to the national average.
Size Index ... This index tracks changes in construction costs for small, mid and large construction projects, based upon gross area.
Frame Index ... This index tracks changes in construction cost for concrete, steel and composite framed construction projects, based upon primary framing material.
Whilst every effort has been made to ensure the validity of the data, Moss Construction Cost Management Inc. provides this information for guidance only and does not warrant the accuracy or applicability of the data to any specific project or location. No liability can be accepted for errors or omissions contained within the cost data, models or indices.
