CostBook Overview

With the most detailed construction cost data available, our out-of-the-box solution features approximately 40,000 searchable unit line items researched, validated, and routinely updated by experienced cost engineers. That’s right, we have the manpower to source the information needed to back our technology up. PT&C CostBook features intuitive and flexible organization of cost items so that you can find what you need faster. Printed books have their place, but they are not an efficient way to lookup and organize data. When you use CostBook with CostPro, you’ll be able to build a shopping list of materials and labor costs and move that over to any project you’re working on within clicks.
