BCIS Rebuilding Cost Guidance
The Building Cost Information Service (BCIS) of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) produces a range of detailed guidance on the cost of rebuilding houses and flats. The Association of British Insurers (ABI) has commissioned BCIS to provide general guidance to help you check the adequacy of your sum insured.
This site provides general guidance on the rebuilding cost of houses and some types of flats to the general public. If you require the rebuilding cost for commercial purposes, either as a surveyor, part of the insurance industry or to manage a group of properties then you should be using one of the BCIS subscription services. You can find details of services for the insurance industry at https://bcis.co.uk/products/insurance and services for the surveying profession at https://bcis.co.uk/products/real-estate/residential-property.
