Gordian supports the entire building lifecycle by improving organizations’ overall planning and budgeting regimes through ongoing maintenance and operations. “We offer data and workflow solutions that significantly speed up a client’s building and construction operations,” adds Diwakar. Gordian’s RSMeans Data Online solution empowers clients with a construction cost database housing over 85,000-unit line items covering more than 970 locations in the US to overcome many construction estimating challenges. This easily accessible, cloud-based library of construction data helps users create budgets, build estimates, and validate cost proposals during preconstruction operations. In addition to providing North America’s leading construction cost database, Gordian is the pioneer of Job Order Contracting (JOC), a streamlined construction delivery process, and offers facilities planning services to develop strategic capital plans and ongoing strategies.
Gordian’s JOC solutions are designed to simplify the contracting and procurement processes while strengthening the collaboration between owners and awarded contractors, in turn, benefitting public agencies extensively.
Gordian is currently enhancing its cutting-edge solutions with AI to help make its customers’ workflows more efficient and effective. The company is confident that these AI features and functionality will be game-changers for their clients, allowing them to save valuable time. One such feature is AI-based estimate and proposal generation, which automatically ‘assists’ users in creating accurate project estimates and proposals. “Clients can take this AI-generated estimate or a proposal, refine it, and get much closer to the accurate result after the AI generates a basic list for them,” explains Diwakar. Gordian’s longstanding presence in the industry further bolsters its AI’s competencies. The company houses construction cost and project data that spans over several decades, to help create a concrete baseline for clients—old and new. Diwakar also states that Gordian’s rich, historical dataset is unmatched in North America.
The company, led by industry veterans, is set to revolutionize the construction landscape with solutions that streamline the management of all phases of the building lifecycle—including capital planning, construction cost estimation, and procurement. To do this, Gordian will continue to evolve and improve their data, software, and expertise, thereby continually developing and designing products to enhance a customer’s construction workflows.
