Gordian’s Solutions

Gordian’s solutions maximize efficiency throughout all phases of a building’s lifecycle, from planning and design, through procurement, construction and operations. These solutions deliver streamlined processes and services to state, local and federal government, K-12 and higher education institutions, those in healthcare, and more.

We strive to optimize construction procurement outcomes and help those in government maximize productivity and improve construction quality by delivering comprehensive and accurate construction data, robust cloud software and specialized expertise.

Efficient Construction Project Delivery

The construction procurement process can be a long one. Sometimes, as in the case of a new courthouse or rec center, that’s necessary. But when it comes to repairs, renovations and alterations the traditional procurement process can hinder progress. That’s why state and local agencies across the United States turn to Gordian’s Job Order Contracting (JOC) solutions.

Job Order Contracting is an Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) construction delivery method that allows many projects to be completed with a single, competitively-awarded contract. Ideal for completing work in short time frames, this single-bid process empowers you to start projects faster. Job Order Contracting is also available via shared contracts held by state and local governments and cooperative purchasing networks.

Reliable Project Cost Data

Access to reliable construction costs is vital for budgeting and estimating projects — especially when resources are limited. You need cost data you can trust. RSMeans data from Gordian has set the industry standard for construction cost accuracy since the 1940s. Today, the cost database contains more than 92,000 unit line items, each researched and validated by our team of engineers and data scientists. We dedicate so much time and care into RSMeans data for one reason: to give you peace of mind.

The most convenient way to access our construction costs is through RSMeans Data Online, our cloud-based solution. Not only does RSMeans Data Online allow you to access our entire database anywhere you can take your laptop, it comes with tools and features that help you budget for and estimate construction work and ongoing maintenance and repairs.

Actionable, Sustainable Capital Improvement Plans

The right facilities data and an outside perspective help you better understand your physical assets and prepare for the future. Our Sightlines Assessment & Planning solution takes a deep dive into the condition of your facilities so you can create actionable capital improvement plans. We’ll gather and analyze data, interview stakeholders and strategically segment buildings to help you understand your facilities’ needs, communicate the impact of your investments and prioritize project selection.

Gordian can help you better manage your facilities and infrastructure and ensure you’re maximizing resources every step of the way. Visit gordian.com/state-local.
