D4Cost aids in estimating construction expenses, allowing users to access a historical library that includes more than 1,100 documented, completed projects. According to the company, the software is ideal for anyone in the commercial building industry concerned about the accuracy of proposed, pre-construction budgets, whether a small one-person firm or a Fortune 500 company. It allows someone to compare projects by adjusting for variances in construction costs from site to site, region to region. The software enables users to come up with reliable cost reports through a Base-Target-Rebase system that uses history and the marketplace as the standard. It is PC-based, compatible with Windows 98, Windows NT, Windows 2000 XP, and Vista. The software is currently available for a trial download, good for 12 uses, at www.d4cost.com.
