The Civil Engineering Standard Method of Measurement – CESMM – has been well-established for over 35 years as the standard for the preparation of bills of quantities in civil engineering work. This much anticipated fourth edition, CESMM4, is the first major overhaul since the publication of CESMM3 in 1991. It brings the method into line with changes in industry practices and extends its usages into some new areas. The original concepts of standardised approach and item coverage remain as fundamental as they did when they were first introduced in 1976. All of these principles remain unchanged. This fourth edition has been updated to incorporate modern construction techniques and is now contract neutral in order to facilitate use across a variety of contract suites including with NEC, FIDIC and ICC. CESMM4 • incorporates the newest technologies so that it is completely up-to-date with current practices • is contract neutral – so you can use it across a variety of contract suites • retains the established structure of CESMM – so there is no need to change your business practices, or to retrain, and therefore there are no time or cost implications • includes a completely updated Rail section. In addition to being contract neutral, reference to British Standards has been largely eliminated facilitating the use of CESMM4 on construction projects across the world. CESMM4 is an invaluable guide for anyone who needs to prepare bills of quantities in civil engineering work and competitive tenders with claims to sustainability based on real and reliable data.
