About this book


The book fully explains the principles contained in the third edition of the Civil Engineering Standard Method of Measurement (CESMM3) and shows how they are implemented in practice. The contractual background to the measurement and valuation of civil engineering works is described in detail, as are the value and use of method-related charges. All aspects of the measurement of civil engineering work, from taking-off to bill preparation are covered; these are illustrated by some twenty-two worked examples containing working drawings and clear handwritten dimension sheets with fully explanatory notes. In addition to being completely revised and reset, the coverage is also extended with a further chapter on the measurement of the renovation of sewers and water mains.
