Altus Group releases 2024 Canadian cost guide

2024-01-24 12:53 ET - News Release

Mr. Colin Doran reports


Altus Group Ltd. has released its 2024 Canadian cost guide, an annual assessment of real estate development and infrastructure construction hard costs across all asset classes in major Canadian cities.

For decades, Altus Group's cost guide has been relied on by the industry to help ensure accuracy and predictability of construction costs and to assess project risks. Drawing on an in-house database representing more than 5,700 development projects and over 1.4 billion square feet collectively valued at over $440-billion, the guide provides ranges on hard costs covering all aspects of real estate development and infrastructure projects, including a detailed breakdown by asset class and city, and on a dollar-per-square-foot or -unit metric.

"Despite elevated interest rates and inflationary pressures, Altus Group's 2024 cost guide indicates that escalation in construction costs has stabilized," said Colin Doran, head of development advisory, Americas, at Altus Group. "It appears that the scales are tilting toward moderation of construction costs over the next six to 12 months; however, this equilibrium may be relatively short lived as rapid population growth and a large backlog of projects will inevitably spur more development activity in key Canadian cities. Actively staying on top of construction costs is imperative to balancing project risks and returns."
