Welcome to Construction Industry Database
As there is a pressing need for a national database of different construction products & services for assisting the project estimator in developing a more realistic project cost estimates, Construction Industry Development Council (CIDC), the apex organization to promote the Indian Construction Industry, has structured such a database, which is available to CIDC members & other interested stakeholders of industry through this dedicated website.
The database primarily provides two types of information, the unit rates of various items of works/materials used in construction works and details about vendors or service providers.
Vendor/Service Provider Details
This section of database provides details about the vendors & service providers, again structured on the basis of cities. Further, vendors are categorized for different construction activities like Building Construction, Earth work, Stone Work, Wood Work, Steel Fabrication & Erection Works, Flooring, Repairs, Dismantling and Demolishing, Road Works, Water Supply & Drainage Works, Piling, Aluminum Work, Water Proofing, Horticulture and Landscaping etc. For an appropriate categorization, the database segregates the details in the following categories: Manufacturer, Material Supplier, Labour Supplier, Contractor, Turn-key Contractor, Facility Management Services, Security Services, Fire Protection Services, HVAC Services, Lift Services, Electrical Contractors, Plumbing Contractors, Insurance Services, Finance Services, Architectural Services, Designing Services, Project Management Services, Quality Assurance & Quality Control Services, Safety Advisory Services etc.
Basic unit rates are the market rates collected from different vendors and checked through research work by CIDC.Basic rates are being collected by CIDC on a six monthly basis from 66 different cities across the nation and maintained on a city & collection month/year basis. This database is backed by the offers from the vendors surveyed/invited to the extent possible. Secondary unit rates, in turn, are again evaluated/revised on the basis of the new/revised basic rates. As the frequency of the rate collection planned is bi-annually, the database shall be having all such survey evaluation results structured for each surveyed city.

Secondary unit rates are derivatives of basic unit rates and are worked out on the basis of standard rate analysis or sound engineering practices. Secondary unit rates are evaluated/revised on the basis of the new/revised basic rates. As the frequency of the rate collection planned is bi-annually, the database shall be having all such survey evaluation results structured for each surveyed city.
