Annual data

Methodological note

The Construction Costs Index is a monthly indicator based on a survey that shows the price of basic components in the cost structure of a project, in other words the price of the construction materials delivered on site (sale price plus transport) and labour costs (salaries plus payroll taxes for days worked).

This basic information is then used to draw up three index numbers which reflect monthly changes in the cost of constructing a building, the cost of constructing civil engineering works and the cost of a project in which neither type is predominant, which is called "total construction cost" as it includes both main types.

The data for the last three months are provisional.
