Departmental construction cost benchmarking data, including benchmarks, predicted speed of cost reductions and cost reductions achieved.


This document sets out:

  • departmental construction cost benchmarks (£/m2, £/km, etc)

  • the actual cost reductions achieved from April 2011 to March 2012

The document contains an addendum from July 2012.
