Construction Cost Estimates for Automotive Service Station in National, US

The following analysis estimates the cost to build an automotive service station using US National Average costs from 2013 RSMeans cost data. Costs are derived from a building model that assumes basic components, using union labor for a 1400 square foot building.

Scope differences and market conditions can cause costs to vary significantly. To see an estimate of the costs to build an automotive service station in a specific city or metropolitan area, go to our index of automotive service station models by state.

NOTE: This cost estimate uses 2013 RSMeans data. A more accurate estimate using current RSMeans cost data is available on RSMeans Online - our online cost estimating tool.
