Welcome to the Community Infrastructure Benchmark Database

This community infrastructure benchmark database facilitates the sharing of best practice and construction related project data amongst Public Sector organisations within Scotland. This database contains project data for schools, healthcare and community facilities delivered across a range of frameworks. The database captures the following data for completed projects and projects currently in construction:-

  • Detailed construction costs
  • Detailed design summary
  • Design benchmarks
  • Plans and elevations of the project
  • Community Benefits Delivered
  • Supply Chain Members
  • Images

The benchmark database is supported by a robust data collection process to ensure data is credible, accessible and easily understood. The database offers an easy to use search function to locate projects and also provides pre-defined reporting templates. In addition the database automatically adjusts project data for inflation to offer like for like analysis.

For further guidance in how to uses this database please refer to the information video or the Community Infrastructure Benchmark Database guidance. For any enquiries, please contact the administration team at benchmarkdata@scottishfuturestrust.org.uk.
