Faithful+Gould’s global location factor update for 2020 has been developed with internal data from international sources, as well as research based on publicly available information. 

Location Factors are calculated using a standardized approach considering labor, materials, productivity, and direct construction costs across all studied locations. 

These factors represent the relative costs of direct construction among the presented locations based on typical western building standards. 

All factors for locations outside of the United States were calculated considering local inflation and currency values at the time of publication.
