CSI Cost Codes

    Hello All,

    We are in the process of converting our cost codes to CSI format from the non-traditional format we are currently using that make no sense at all. I was wondering if there were any GC's out there that are using CSI cost codes and wouldn't mind sharing their list with me? Or if anyone has any suggestions on how to begin to create an entirely new set of cost codes. Any help is appreciated! I am still fairly new the the construction industry and am struggling with this project.

    Hi Kathryn,

    Welcome to the construction industry!  I have worked for GC's for 18 years and have seen multiple lists of cost codes.  When I started with a brand new company and had to put together our own list I looked back and created a list based on a combination of all others.  I think it is a pretty comprehensive list and can easily be modified to anyone's needs.  Each code is 5 digits and the first two digits are the CSI code so it is easily identifiable for project managers, etc.  I have attached it for your use.  Hope it helps!

    We utilize Sage Contrator 100 and incorporated the new CSI Codes as our cost codes.  We set the old cost codes as "inactive" so they are still available for historical tracking but not current/active moving forward.  We took the entire list and cut it down to the numbers we use on a regular basis, adding a few odd ball codes we want to track.  We then made a short list of what our self-performing crews should utilize on a regular basis.  I have attached the 2 lists we use with our PM's and field personnel.


    Hope this helps! ��
