RSMeans Capital Planning

Means Business Solutions are specialists in institutional capital planning in the higher education and hospital sectors. Capital planning by definition is expanding in its scope as Boards of Trustees and owners take on an increased ‘stewardship’ role for costs impacting the life cycle, energy and carbon reduction requirements of campus based portfolios. Means engineers analyze RCD/Means proprietary “best practices” data, assemblies data and facility maintenance data to predict systems failure and subsequent replacement costs of major building subsystems over a typical five to thirty year life span. Means consultants represent the engineering disciplines of civil, electrical, structural, facility, mechanical, and architectural.

RSMeans Benchmark Studies

Local market forces play a significant role in cost including the impact of other projects in the local market, availability of labor and labor costs as well as fluctuating material costs. Means analyzes these forces using its proprietary databases, contractor’s surveys and local cost research. With Means analysis, owners can adjust budgets during construction phases based upon real market conditions. For government agencies Means develops custom indexes based upon its proprietary CCI (Construction Cost Index) to gauge material and labor costs for US cites and towns.

Third Party Validation – In the commercial non residential market, Means develops third party validation estimates for institutional Boards of Trustees at the request of the owner’s architect. These estimates are blind based without regard to the architect’s submittal and used for technical evaluations and local market cost evaluations.

Lean Construction – The fields of operations research and industrial engineering are contributing to lean construction. Applicable to the job site and focused on parallel processing methods lean construction will emerge over the next decade as a key method to reduce waste and improve cost practices during construction. For work duration studies Means engineers analyze installation cycles for time savings in construction process.

Best Practices Facility Operations and Maintenance - Cost savings often are identified as a result of studying peer organizations. Means cost engineers conduct audits to analyze best practices and areas for improvement, particularly energy solutions, carbon reduction, security and building automation. RCD’s proprietary databases of architectural plans are analyzed to offer market intelligence about specification trends in architecture and planning.

RSMeans Cost Engineering

Means Business Solutions engineers and analysts uses the latest data mining and analytics methods to access RCD/Means proprietary reference cost databases. Analysis and special studies are available to facility owners, capital planners and facility engineers for developing budgets, analyzing local markets, determining first costs, downstream costs, and monitoring life cycle and sustainable practices within the building portfolio.

A flagship account with the US Army Corps of Engineers now in its fifteenth year offers an international cost perspective for 200+ international markets and 300+ US markets. Federal clients include DOE, BLS, FEMA, Pentagon and the VA Healthcare System – all clients managing extensive building portfolio inventory. Means participates in standards monitoring for cost engineering with ASTM. RCD/Means participates in association with AIA, CFMA, COAA, CJE, APPA and NASFA.

Conceptual Cost Modeling – as practiced by RSMeans to determine for various building types a square foot/assemblies estimate for various building types at +-20% variance to actual cost. This activity is an initial step to a unit price estimate which produces a +-5% variance. With its proprietary cost estimating database and 80+ generic building model library, Means develops parametric cost models based upon actual building specifications in the client portfolio. Results are deployed in Means Cost Works™ an estimating system to monitor estimates at various stages. Clients include hotel corporations, health systems, retail stores, government agencies and chain restaurants, i.e., any organization building repetitive designs in multiple locations.

Evidence Based Design – Originating in the hospital industry, this trend will migrate to other sectors as a result of green and sustainable practices. A central theme of evidence based design is positive clinical outcomes occur faster (thus reducing patient length-of-stay ) if there are design features that impact healing, such as wall art, healing gardens, windows, daylight, etc. As this method becomes established it will cross markets into libraries, schools and government buildings. Means offers functional space planning design and cost modeling for capital intensive areas.

BIM/Integrated Project Delivery – It is well documented that billions of dollars of financial waste occurs with change orders, cost overruns and construction litigation. These will be significantly reduced as the promise of Integrated Project Delivery (IPD) transforms architecture and construction management practices. IPD makes business process sense and involves various parties earlier (e.g. owners, architects, engineers, estimators, facility engineers, contractors and subcontractors) in planning and design. Means offers cost monitoring and third party cost validation studies to owners phasing-in IPD processes. Parametric object design and cost modeling is also available for BIM applications specific to the client’s functional building areas.

Sustainability, Energy and Carbon Reduction - An Executive Order on High Performance Buildings for federal agencies established policy in October 2009 and sets the standard for adoption of sustainable practices in public buildings. Essential to this policy adoption is life cycle cost engineering including Means Facility Reference Cost Database for operations metrics and maintenance costs. RSMeans engineers and analysts consult with clients to apply database and decision support methods for on line analysis and tools.
