The California Construction Cost index is developed based upon Building Cost Index (BCI) cost indices average for San Francisco and Los Angeles ONLY as produced by Engineering News Record (ENR) and reported in the second issue each month. 

The current five year CCCI table is updated the 2nd half of the month for the current month. The ENR BCI reports cost trends for specific construction trade labor and materials in the California market and does not reflect current market bidding environment. Prior to July 1991, CCCI was recorded quarterly, all months post July 1991 are calculated based on the ENR BCI reports and recorded for each month.
