Housing constitutes a significant share of the total European construction market. As such, the ability to estimate residential construction costs accurately is of great importance to the industry. To facilitate this, ECC has compiled detailed information regarding construction costs for residential buildings.

The cost data in this category covers all residential living units across a wide and diverse range of constructions. All information is presented in a logical sequence, running from single detached properties all the way to high-rise apartment buildings. The huge differences between national traditions and local quality expectations reduce the chance of commonality, but each country’s models are reflected in the detailed cost schedules presented in this category.
