From its founding in a small office in the basement in Atlanta, GA, RIB U.S. Cost rose to become a major subsidiary of a global public company.  For over 30 years, we have combined technology and industry expertise to deliver exceptional professional services to our clients.  We employ the industry’s top cost and project controls consultants. Our team can deliver using iTWO, the No.1 5D enterprise application for construction project delivery, embodying the complete solution for tomorrow’s technology in the construction industry.

In 2012, U.S. Cost was acquired by RIB Software AG and in 2015, our affiliate, RIB Americas, formerly known as Management Computer Controls (MC2), became the sole provider in the U.S. of RIB iTWO, an advanced 5D technology platform, while maintaining our companies' legacy products, Success and ICE.

After many years of developing software, we are very pleased to be able to focus on what we were founded upon – delivering professional services using the most advanced methods and software for exceptional results.
