D4COST now offers on CD a Green Building Estimating Library, containing cost data from 59 Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) and sustainable projects. Detailed on the CD is square-footage cost information for wide-ranging projects, including commercial, industrial, office, educational (including numerous schools that are certified LEED-NC for new construction), medical, recreational, religious, residential, government and civic structures.
Also included on the CD is D4COST Express software, which enables architects, contractors and subcontractors to build historical project libraries using company project data. Projects archived into D4COST Express can be cost modeled instantly and precisely using exclusive cost escalators and location modifiers, system developers affirm. New projects can be further modeled by changing the square footage or adjusting each line item within the project for added precision. The new CD is available for $49.95 from the D4COST Web site.
