FAQ's

CostWeb is not designed to be an online version of the Australian Construction Handbook.  CostWeb was set up to fill a need in the market for up to date, high level market intelligence on construction cost trends, trade movements and cost forecasting that detailed cost guides do not deliver.

CostWeb is targeted at anyone who has a need for historic, current or future construction costs and industry trends. It is ideal for the feasibility stage of a project, and for benchmarking and analysis to establish whether your projects represent value for money in the current market. Unlike printed media, CostWeb delivers information instantly online 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
