Preface to First Edition 1922


For many years the Surveyors' Institution and the Quantity Surveyors' Association (which bodies are now amalgamated) were accepted as the recognised authorities for deciding disputed points in connection wifh the measurement of building works. The frequency of the demands upon their services for this purpose directed attention to the diversity of practice, varying with local custom, and even the idiosyncracies of individual surveyors, which obtained. This lack of uniformity afforded a just ground of complaint on the part of contractors that the estimator was frequently left in doubt as to the true meaning of items in the bills of quantities which he was called upon to price, a circumstance which militated against scientific and accurate tendering. In the absence of any statutory qualifications for surveyors practising in the United Kingdom, any person, up to the present, has been at liberty to describe himself as a quantity surveyor, and the public have no guarantee that he is qualified for that office. This fact resulted in the issue of a considerable amount of unskilled work under the designation of bills of quantities. Both the Surveyors' Institution and the Quantity Surveyors' Association were impressed with the necessity of securing greater accuracy of work and uniformity of method. The latter body, in July 1909, with this object in view appointed a Committee who prepared and published pamphlets setting out the method of measurement recommended by the Association in respect of three trades. The Surveyors' Institution also issued to its members circulars giving an authoritative opinion as to the correct method of measurement in the case of items in connection with which disputes had occurred. The desirability of co-operation between the two societies thus became evident, and a Joint Committee was set up in June 1'912, upon which was imposed the task of drawing up a comprehensive set of Standard Rules of Measurement of Building Works. In 1918 representatives of the building trades were added to this Committee, four contractors being nominated by the National Federation of Building Trades Employers and the Institute of Builders. The Joint Committee were assisted in their deliberations by interviews with the representatives of certain trades. The Standard Method of Measurement of Building Works drawn up and' set forth in the following pages is founded upon the practice of the leading London quantity surveyors with certain modifications by way of alternatives, and not involving matters of princpte, to suit the practice obtaining in other parts of the Kingdom. The Joint Committee was composed as follows: six surveyors nominated by the Surveyors' Institution and the Quantity Surveyors' Association, and four contractors nominated by the National Federation of Building Trades Employers and the Institute of Builders, viz Surveyors: Messrs. F.A ..H Hardcastle (Chairman), Thomas E. Bare (Hon.Sec.), R.C. Gleed, Arnold E. Harris, Walter Lawrence, and Morgan H. Young. Contractors: Messrs. R. Friend (Rugby) (Vice-Chairman), W. Lacey (London), Stanley Miller (Newcastle-on-Tyne) and Frank Woods (Bolton, Lancashire). Other gentlemen who have served on the Committee for a time are: Surveyors: Messrs. Arthur G. Cross, WE Davis, J.E. Drower, and Henry Riley ..Contractor: Mr. Walter lawrence (London).

Preface to Seventh Edition 1988


The Joint Working Party on Measurement Conventions set up by The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors and the then National Federation of Building Trades Employers reported in December 1971. Out of this report a Development Unit was set up and quickly came to the conclusion that far reaching changes were required. As an interim measure the Sixth Edition of the Standard Method of Measurement was published in March 1979. Now, with the publication of this Seventh Edition, the work envisaged by that working party has been completed. The Co-ordinaling Committee for Project Information has produced a Common Arrangement of Work Sections for Building Works. In support of the principles of CCPI and in accordance with the wishes of the sponsoring bodies, this Edition has been structured in common arrangement order rather than in traditional work sections. This means that the Standard Method of Measurement is now compatible with other CCPI publications and with aU standard documentation where these criteria have been adopted. The other major change from previous editions is that the measurement rules have been translated from prose into classification tables. This change makes the use of the rules a quicker and more systematic task than interpretation of a prose version and readily lends itself 10 the use of standard phraseology and computerisation. The change however does not inhibit the use of traditional prose in the writing of bills of quantities if so desired. In addition to these two major changes, the rules have generally been simplified and the document brought up 10 date to equate wih modern practice. The Committee expresses its thanks to the professional and trade associations for their co-operation and advice in the detailed consultations that have taken place and to the surveyors and builders who have assisted in testing the new rules, to Geoffrey E. Beard who chaired the Committee from June 1975 to September 1984 and especially to the editors who have had the task of bringing together all the various drafts and presenting them in a uniform manner in a relatively short space of time. This Seventh Edition will become operative on 1 July 1988 and is post dated accord ingly. The Join! Committee responsible for this edition at the date of issue was composed as follows: Appointed by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors: Christopher J. Willis (Chairman), Ronald C. Allan, Keith W. Bailey, John Bennett, Eric J. Bowman, N. Malcolm S. Boyd, Michael A. Rainbird, Eric H. Urquhart and Michael J.T. Webb. Appointed by the Building Employers Confederation: Andrew J. Costelloe (Vice-Chairman), John M. Allen, Bernard Ball, Kenneth G. Ellis, James E. Fisher, Colin M. Ford, Richard J. Hooker, Robert H. Inglis, Terence J. Parkinson and Donald J. Rimmer. Co-opted from the Development Unit: Tony AIIott, Stuart Hendy, Peter Holden, Peter G. Jordan and Rex H. Sharman.

Preface to the Seventh Edition Revised


The Seventh Edition of the Standard Method of Measurement was published in 1988. Following experience in use and in consequence of queries raised minor amendments were made in September 1988, May 1989 and in May 1992. Now in 1998 further changes are required. The Seventh Edition when published was in a completely new format using as a base the Common Arrangement of Work Sections for Building Works as part of an initiative for Co-ordinated Project Information in the industry. In 1997 a further advancement in this initiative was made with the publication by the Construction Project Information Committee, the successors to the authors of the original CAWS, of a new manual entitled UN/CLASS. UN/CLASS is a document intended to be used for a wide number of different purposes including organising documents in libraries, project and cost information, specifications etc. Many potential users of UN/CLASS are currently users of CAWS in one form or other. UN/CLASS includes certain amendments to the original CAWS and as CAWS is the base document for SMM 7 it has been necessary to recognise these changes and to amend SMM 7. The changes are mainly to titling, phraseology and order and in consequence, whilst the changes incorporated in this revision are extensive, the changes to the rules themselves are minimal. As well as making the changes consequent upon the amended CAWS the Standing Joint Committee have taken the opportunity to correct certain other anomalies that have arisen since the third amendment was published in 1992. This Revised Seventh Edition will become operative on 31st July and is postdated accordingly.

General rules
1. Introduction
2.5
The left hand column of the classification table lists descriptive features commonly encountered in building works. The next column lists further sub-groups into which each main group of items shall be divided and similarly the third column provides for further division. The lists in these columns are not intended to be exhaustive.

1.1 This Standard Method of Measurement provides a uniform basis for measuring building works and embodies the essentials of good practice. Bills of quantities shall fully describe and accurately represent the quantity and quality of the works to be carried out. More detailed information than is required by these rules shall be given where necessary in order to define the precise nature and extent of the required work.

2.6
Each item descri ption shall identify the wo rk with respect to one descri ptive feature drawn from each of the first three columns in the classification table and as many of the descriptive features in the fourth column as are applicable to the item. The general principle does not apply to Preliminaries in that it will be necessary to select as many descriptive features as appropriate from each column.

1.2
The rules apply to measurement of proposed work and executed work.

2.
2.1

Use of the tabulated rules

Generally
The rules in this document are set out in tables. Each section of the rules comprises information (to be) provided, classification tables and supplementary rules. The tabulated rutes are written in the present tense.

2.7
Where the abbreviation (or) is given in the classification shall be stated in the item description. table the quantity

Supplementary rules 2.8


Within the supplementary rules everything above the horizontal line. which is immediately below the classification table heading, is applicable throughout that table. 2.9 Measurement rules set out when work shall be measured and the method by which quantities shall be computed. 2.10 Definition rules deline the extent and limits of the work represented by a word or expression used in the rules and in a bill of quantities prepared in accordance with the rules.

2.2
Horizontal lines divide the classification zones to which different rules apply. table and supplementary rules into

Classification tables
2.3 Within the classification table where a broken line is shown, the rules given above and below the broken line may be used as alternatives.

2.4
In referring to columns in classification umn has been disregarded. tables the measurement unit col-

2.11 Coverage rules draw attention to particular incidental work which shall be deemed to be included in the appropriate items in a bill of quantities to the extent that such work is included in the tender documents. Where the coverage rules include materials they shall be mentioned in the item descriptions. 2.12 The column headed Supplementary Information contains rules governing the information which shall be given in addition to the information given as a result of the application of rule 2.6. 2.13 A separate item shall be given for any work which differs from other work with respect to any matter listed as supplementary information.

4.

Descriptions

4.1 Dimensions shall be stated in descriptions generally in the sequence length, width, height. Where ambiguity could arise, the dimensions shall be identified.

4.2
Information required by the application of rules 2.6 and 2.12 may be given in documents (e.g. drawings or specification) separate from the bills of quantities if a precise and unique cross reference is given in its place in the description ot the item concerned. This rufe does not allow the aggregation of a number of measured items which are otherwise required to be measured separately by these rules, except as provided by rule 9.1.

4.3
Headings to groups of items in a bill of quantities shall be read as part of the descriptions of the items to which the headings apply.

3.
3.1

Quantities

4.4 The use of a hyphen between two dimensions in this document or in a bill of quantities shall mean a range of dimensions exceeding the first dimension stated but not exceeding the second.

Work shall be measured net as fixed in position except where otherwise stated in a measurement rule applicable to the work. 3.2 Dimensions used in calculating quantities shall be taken to the nearest 10mm (i.e. 5mm and over shall be regarded as 10mm and less than 5mm shall be disregarded).

4.5
Each work section of a bill of quantities shall begin with a description stating the nature and location of the work unless evident from the drawn or other information required to be provided by these rules.

4.6
Unless otherwise specifically stated in a bill of quantities following shall be deemed to be included with all items: (a) Labour and all costs in connection (c) Assembling, therewith. therewith. (b) Materials, goods and all costs in connnection (d) Plant and all costs in connection therewith. (e) Waste of materials and all costs in connection with dispasal. (f) Square cutting. (g) Establishment charges, overhead charges and profit. or herein, the

3.3

Quantities measured in lonnes shall be given to two places of decimals. Other quantities shall be given to the nearest whole unit except that any quantity less than one unit shall be given as one unit.

3.4
Unless otherwise stated, where minimum deductions for voids are dealt with in this document they shall refer only to openings or wants which are within the boundaries of measured areas. Openings or wants which are at the boundaries of measured areas shall always be the subject of deduction irrespective of size.

fitting and fixing materials and goods in position.

4.7
A dimensioned description for an item in the bill of quantities shall define the item and state all the dimensions necessary to identify the shape and size of the item or its components.

3.5
The requirement to measure separate items for widths not exceeding stated limit shall not apply where these widths are caused by voids. a
