Troostwijk Index

Every year Troostwijk offers indices for machinery / equipment and office / industrial buildings and residential buildings. The online indices are specifically intended for insurance purposes.

From quarter to year indices

Troostwijk has opted not only to base the indices on information from the past. We add an important component to this, namely an estimate of the construction costs in the future. This allows us to better anticipate current developments in the market and no longer lag behind the facts. As of 1 January 2019, we therefore switched from a quarterly publication to an annual publication of the indices.

Base year

Troostwijk has also chosen 2019 as the new base year and set it to 100. Since there have been no changes in the VAT rate since then, there are therefore no differences between indices including and excluding VAT.
