Method of Measurement of Construction Works

Method of Measurement of Construction Works is becoming increasingly used in civil engineering works, under the NEC, ICE and FIDIC forms of contract, both in the GCC and overseas.

It has a format designed for more efficient costing and ease of computerization and has features that differ from other forms of measurement. It is therefore essential that both engineers and quantity surveyors are familiar with its form and content.

The Course is designed to provide knowledge, skills, and an additional qualification to a career in construction management or quantity surveying. In addition to the critical site measurement skills under CESMM, other areas of study include; BOQ preparation, Claims analysis, review, and recommendation.

Measurement is the base upon which decisions are made and underpins all the work we do. It is not just about numbers; it is about the thinking and analysis they enable.

Strategic Axis advocates international measurement standards so we can have more authentic cross-border comparison and regulation, and produce a truly global industry.

The course includes a deep understanding of Civil Engineering Standard Method of Measurement (commonly known as CESMM3) sets out a procedure for the preparation of a bill of quantities for civil engineering works, for pricing and for expression and measurement of quantities of work.

This course aims to enable delegates to:

Understand the purpose of using a standardized method of measurement

Understand the structure and format of the CESMM3 document

Be able to prepare bill items and re-measure completed work by the requirements of CESMM3

Be aware of the structure and application of Method Related Charges, unique to CESMM, and the benefits arising from this facility

Be aware and appreciate the relationship of the Method of Measurement and the Conditions of Contract

On completion of this course, delegates will be able to:

Understand the structure and format of the CESMM3 document

Be aware of the underlying ethos behind the CESMM3 approach

Apply the rules of CESMM3 to the measurement of work under a range of the “Classes” of action specified in the document

Understand and apply the Method Related Charges rules

Understand the importance of the relationship between the method of measurement and the conditions of the contract


Participants who fully attend this course and complete the test on the last day will receive a Strategic Axis Professional Certificate (SAPC). SAPC certificates are regionally recognized and can be quite valuable when applying for more senior roles within the organization or outside.
