Next update:

 It is anticipated that the April 2015 cost trends will be posted on this website in middle to late May 2015.

*Note: Several indexes that were previously published from April 1997 through April 1999 were revised in July of 1999. These indexes reflect the refinement of computations that resulted in minor changes to some of the construction cost indexes. We believe that these adjusted numbers more closely represent actual conditions and trends for the above period. The original published numbers, if needed, may be viewed and printed by clicking on previously published indexes for April 97 - April 99.
