Large civil engineering projects take a long time to plan and build. Maintenance and framework agreements and the like tend to be for extended periods and regulatory periods for infrastructure sectors are generally for five years or more. So dealing with inflation during the planning, construction and maintenance of infrastructure projects is an important issue. The normal means of adjusting for inflation is by use of an index.
The objective of this BCIS guide is to look at the types of indices available, the mechanisms used to adjust for inflation for different purposes, and to provide some guidance on choosing the right index.
BCIS is the Building Cost Information Service of RICS (Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors). It provides independent cost data for the construction and insurance industry, which includes civil engineering projects. A new subscription service is now available.
The RICS Infrastructure Information Service (IIS) includes the BCIS forecasts for the Infrastructure sector. The forecast will be for five years and cover:
