Measurement of buildings is the core skill of the quantity surveyor. It underpins the procurement, management, delivery and subsequent commissioning of a completed building, and must now be completed using New Rules of Measurement 2 (NRM 2). In this much-needed new measurement textbook, the measurement of the most common building elements is described using NRM2. Extensive worked examples including fully up to date hand-drawn diagrams and supporting take-off lists ensure that the reader develops a confidence in their ability to measure using NRM2 in practice. A practical step-by-step approach is used to explain and interpret the detail of the specific Work Sections of NRM2, covering a broad range of different trades, including mechanical and electrical systems; external works; groundwork; masonry; joinery; and internal finishes. Presuming no prior knowledge of measurement or NRM2, and fully up to date with current practice, including consideration of Building Information Modelling, this is the ideal text for students of measurement at HND or BSc level, as well as practitioners needing a crash course in how to apply NRM2.
