Richardson Engineering Database


The construction industry, particularly in the US and Canada, has relied on the RichardsonTM Standards for over 45 years. Rather than having separate volumes for general construction and process construction, Cost Data On Line offers the combined database and updates it as often as new cost data is obtained.

Using the Richardson Dynamic Data web service, users can select any construction component or process equipment item and obtain current cost and pricing data. The database provides the information in Adobe Acrobat pdf form which can be printed as required or viewed on-line. The database generally follows the 16-division Construction Specification Index (CSI) Masterformat plus an account for process equipment.

Eos Group’s professional services team provides data conversion services to deliver the Richardson Engineering data into electronic format for Sage Estimating clients. Eos Group adds value to the data through customization, integration with client’s existing cost data, and parametric assembly and model development services. The conversion services include cost codes, cost items, resources, crews and assemblies (Richardson Engineering ‘Rapids’).

The knowledgebase contains:
520 phases
190,750 items
416 assemblies
