Construction Data and Research, Inc. (CDR) has been in business for more than 20 years, serving clients in the states of Washington, Oregon, California, Colorado and New Mexico.  With a small staff and low overhead costs, CDR prides itself on providing efficient, cost-effective services that empower clients from throughout North America to meet their market recovery goals. 

CDR got its start when Glenn Ballard of Ballard Management Services (BMS) was involved in labor / management dispute mediation.  Ballard recognized that part of the cause for misunderstandings between the parties was the lack of impartial, verifiable market share numbers.  

In 1994, Steve Staneff’s Staneff Consulting became involved in assisting BMS in meeting these goals through the collection of permits, sub-trade permits and advertising. In 1995, Staneff Consulting officially became CDR and assumed responsibility for the market share side of BMS’s business.
