    Hi Julianne! Thank you for your forum post. IMPLAN’s Construction sectors do not include Furniture, Fixtures and Equipment (FFE); as the construction sector would be to just build the building. Since you are working with the fit out costs or FFE and if you know the specific item, we recommend impacting the producing sector. However, if these FFE's are not being produced in your study region or if you are not purchasing the items from a local wholesaler or retailer; then there would not be an impact in your study region. I have included an article on margining a producing Sector: IMPLAN's construction sector does include soft costs such as legal and architect costs. Although, if the building constructed is going to need above and beyond the amount of what would be considered normal legal and architect costs; you can model those soft costs separately. Please let us know if you have any additional questions!
