    Its main use is to assist, in an abbreviated form, in the application of the rules e. It is essential that the rules are carefully studied before attempting to build up a description in case there is a restriction which would not be apparent by merely assembling descriptive features from the divisions. It would be unwise, however, for the taker-off to abuse the power entrusted to him by this paragraph. Hughes Construction Tendering and Estimating J. Although this paragraph gives the authority for this form of referencing, it also contains an important proviso that the reference must be precise. Since publication, discussions have taken place with quantity surveyors, engineers, academics and students and it appeared that there was a need for a book containing examples of civil engineering taking-off only.

    This downgrading of the descriptions does not in any way relieve the taker-off from his responsibility of producing the most lucid descriptions he can within the framework of the method of measurement. It is the measurement of rock which is the main consideration in the Preamble and the definition should clearly state in geological terms what materials will be defined and paid for as rock. It is interesting to note that Rule A2 in Class E provides a further requirement for the body of water to be identified in the item description for work which is below the feature; this requirement is not thought necessary in other Classes such as F, I or P where similar situations could occur. Project Cost EstimatingNigel J. If a power station was to be constructed on the west Cornish coast it would be sufficient to state in the Preamble that the Atlantic Ocean was adjacent to the site together with tidal information.

    The authority for this comes from Paragraph 3. I am also grateful to Stephen Booth and the Institution of Civil Engineering Surveyors for permission to reproduce some of the information in Chapter 9. Its main use is to assist, in an abbreviated form, in the application of the rules e. Almost the first task of the taker-off should be to consult the Engineer and draw up the Grand Summary to identify the various parts. If by following the recommendations of this section a series of unwieldy codings is produced it may be better not to apply them. It would be unwise, however, for the taker-off to abuse the power entrusted to him by this paragraph.

This is done by using a form of standard abbreviations which have been listed separately. The choice lies between H. This book is comprised of 14 chapters and begins with an overview of the philosophy underlying the contract system in civil engineering, followed by a discussion on the promotion of civil engineering works.

This is obviously undesirable because the estimator requires only one item to cover all the work to be carried out under the scope of the description.

CESMM4 Revised: Civil Engineering Standard Method of Measurement

In sewage disposal Civil engineering quantities book and water treatment works it is usually quite straightforward to prepare a list of parts based on individual structures in the same order in which they are involved in the treatment process.

For example, it is not uncommon for the Employer to purchase special pipes or fittings in advance of the main civil contract where there is a long delay between order and delivery.

In the example given in Paragraph 5. Figures which are to be added or subtracted are bracketed together in the manner shown. The correct term for this task is re-measurement where the work is physically measured on site or admeasurement where the actual quantities are calculated from records.

Figure 6. The aim of the coding is to produce a uniformity of presentation to assist the needs of the estimator and the post-contract administration.

If additional descriptive features are required see Paragraph 3. Bryan J. The information which is of most interest to the estimator is the depth of the topsoil itself. Thus 6. Chapter 4 —General Items. Estimates can be prepared at any stage during a project but in order to make use of an estimate it isimportant to consider its purpose, the stage of the project when it was Although it is expected that civil engineering and quantity surveying students will form the major part of the readership, interest has already been expressed by practising engineers and surveyors on the need for a book providing examples of civil engineering taking-off accompanied by a commentary on the measurement techniques being used.

The list has no contractual significance. Despite the reduction in the number of disputes since Dr Martin Barnes produced CESMM 1 indisagreements over the definitive way to measure engineering work continue. The method of measurement has by necessity great flexibility and affords the taker-off opportunities to use his professional skill and judgement denied to his opposite number in the building side of the industry.

Common sense must be applied in the matter of rounding-off quantities. See also Class E. The Contractor would be given the opportunity to insert his adjustment percentages after each item.Any person indulged in the Civil Engineering profession can clearly think of these factors i.e.

set amount of funds, costly labour (skilled and unskilled), difficulty in getting good building materials, particularly.
