Simple, Powerful Benchmarking & Conceptual Estimating

RIB Benchmark

RIB Benchmark is designed to provide users with quick and accurate project cost estimates by utilising existing historical data from past completed projects. Our web-based solution provides added value by determining the feasibility at the early stages of a project. Benchmark allows conceptual estimates to be performed quickly and accurately, based on evidential data.

Why Choose RIB Benchmark?

Benchmark draws upon past projects, creating a database of high-quality historical construction information for detailed benchmark analyses and quick and accurate conceptual estimating.

Benchmark includes a range of reports for displaying estimates and comparisons, as well as OData integration with analytics platforms such as Power BI and Tableau. This allows the data to be presented in a user-friendly and comprehensible format.

Benchmark is designed to integrate with RIB CostX estimating software, but can also support generic data imports, enabling it to be used as a standalone solution. This makes it simple to develop extensive libraries.
