CESMM4 Handbook is an ICE guide to the financial control of contracts using the fourth edition of the Civil Engineering Standard Method of Measurement (CESMM4). The handbook has been completely revised and updated to bring it into line with the changes and new material contained within CESMM4. Updates include: an explanation of amendments that make CESMM4 contract-neutral, and explanations of how CESMM can be used with NEC, FIDIC and ICC contracts. The book also explains updates that brought CESMM4 into line with the latest technologies, and how CESMM4 can be used with various national standards. It also contains an extensive range of updated examples that clarify the use of each of the 26 classes of work.

The book will be an invaluable reference guide for anyone who needs to prepare Bills of Quantities for civil engineering works and competitive tenders using CESMM4. It is suitable for those with little background in this area and who are seeking an authoritative introduction to CESMM4, and it will also be a valuable resource for anyone familiar with the provisions of CESMM3 and who is looking to make the transition to CESMM4.
