The costs of rebuilding is of major concern to insurance companies whose premiums are based on values presented for the construction costs. The costs of rebuilding however is never a straight like for like model and it is unlikely that exactly the same building will be constructed in place of the lost or damaged structure. The costs presented are at various levels of rebuilding and vary significantly between countries because of various factors and typical national construction methods and traditions. The costs of rebuilding on ECC models are arranged in various levels so for example the costs in southern, more earthquake prone countries reflect not only their typical experience but of course that the initial structure would have been designed within those parameters. A major divergence in cost can be as simple as the amount of substructure and foundations that can be reused. The Netherlands typically constructs all buildings on massively piled foundations and so the retention of that for the rebuilding represents a significant cost benefit. The local experience and local understanding of the national affiliates enables ECC to offer realistic appraisal of their costs

Rebuilding costs are shown on the summary sheet of each project. When using the costing tool the option of rebuilding at various levels are presented.

The cost schedule shown is typical of the cost information we provide on the members site. Members benefit from regular cost updates, regular exchange rates updates and of course enables similar buildings in other European countries to be compared with your selected example. Using the basic costs provided it is possible to create an estimate for your project using our easy 4 step online calculation tool.

ECC aims to provide a comprehensive representation of all construction costs related to rebuilding projects. The cost indicators are drawn from a substantial number of projects throughout Europe as the shortage, particularly in city centre sites is making rebuilding, renovation and remodeling a popular sector of construction. These are relatively common projects at the moment so the expertise across the affiliates is exceptionally helpful.
