2018 CEPCI updates: Sept. (prelim.) and August (final)

By Scott Jenkins |

The preliminary value for the September 2018 CE Plant Cost Index (CEPCI; most recent available) increased  compared to the previous month’s value, continuing an upward trend that has been in place throughout 2018. The final August numbers were revised upwardly as well, because of adjustments in two quarterly reported inputs for administrative support. The Engineering & Supervision fell slightly in September, while the other three major subindexes increased. The overall CEPCI for September stands at 7.6% higher than the corresponding value from September of last year. Meanwhile, the CBI data for Oct. 2018 show a small increase in the CPI output index from the previous month.
