WHAT we do

HOW we do it

Reed Construction Data will always be transformational and forward-thinking, because to stand still is to move backwards.

The English writer Gilbert Keith Chesterson once wrote, “There are no rules of architecture for a castle in the clouds.” However, this lack of rules may offer the very freedom that will inspire an architect to design the castle and will challenge a contractor to actually build it.
In the real world, architecture, engineering and construction are complicated – an almost infinite number of details must be considered and decided upon before the first piece of earth is ever turned.
It is this understanding that motivates Reed Construction Data to continually establish new partnerships and develop new services that can be leveraged to save you valuable time, thereby making your job easier and more productive, and your business more profitable. And, as industry practices change and technology creates new opportunities, RCD will continue to evolve to meet your changing needs.

WHY it matters

We at Reed Construction Data believe that if you are successful, we will be successful.

In order to transform a construction project from an idea into reality, owners, architects, engineers, contractors, investors and insurers must evaluate seemingly discrete pieces of economic, scientific, financial and risk analysis information. RCD provides much of the data and information that construction industry professionals rely on to help with critical decision-making.
We share the vision of our parent company, Reed Elsevier, “to be the preferred and highest value-add online global solutions provider in important key professional markets.”
We can realize this vision only by helping to ensure your success, and that means delivering the information, products and services that will meet both your current and future needs.
