...the BCIS database was able to provide what we couldn’t manage ourselves in-house...

Public Sector Firm on 1/1/2017

I needed to justify £6m of spend; by using the BCIS database I was able to use the up-to-date benchmarking data, to adjust the date of the build and use the location factors to validate the difference in cost from building on a green field site in the North, against demolishing and reconstruction on a site in the South, over a year later. The data we require is quite specialist yet the BCIS database was able to provide what we couldn’t manage ourselves in-house.

...whenever there is a change in the market, we are able to adapt...

Until just over two years ago we were focused on one client, working with the British Government on their schools and hospital programme. But the cuts introduced by Government meant we had to diversify our market into the private sector. We had no information for residential or refurbishment projects, but the BCIS database gave us everything we needed. Now, whenever there is a change in the market, we are able to adapt. It is one of the benefits of subscribing to BCIS.

This has helped the P21+ programme exceed its 14% construction cost reduction target as part of the Government Construction Strategy...

The Department was keen to ensure the wealth of data under the P21+ programme reaches the widest audience possible. The BCIS on-line portal provides this information in a recognised format and importantly has been sense checked by the BCIS as part of the publication process. Availability of cost data supports budget development, benchmarking and cost management for new and developing healthcare projects. This has helped the P21+ programme exceed its 14% construction cost reduction target as part of the Government Construction Strategy.
