Green building uses different materials and different styles of construction making estimating a challenge.

The new 2019 BNi Green Building Square Foot Costbook provides you with a comprehensive collection of 57 recent LEED and sustainable building projects along with their actual square foot costs, broken down by CSI MasterFormat section. All of the costs in the Green Building Square Foot Costbook have been carefully adjusted for 2018.

Included are cost studies on green construction for:

  • Libraries
  • Commercial buildings
  • Schools
  • Medical facilities
  • Residential projects
  • Multi-family

Special emphasis for this 2019 Edition is on educational and multi-family residential buildings. All the projects covered reflect the vast array of "green" materials and technologies being used today - including straw bale systems and ACCEL-I wall systems.

For each building, the 2019 BNi Green Building Square Foot Costbook provides a detailed narrative describing the major features of the actual building, the steps taken to minimize the environmental impact both in its construction and its operation and a square-foot cost breakdown of each building component.

All costs are clearly broken out on a cost-per-square-foot basis, along with the primary specifications and full details about the construction team. By purchasing the BNi Green Building Square Foot Costbook, you will also receive the 2020 Edition, on a no-risk free trial basis.
