The definitive guide to measurement and estimating using NRM1, written by the author of NRM1
The 'RICS New rules of measurement: Order of cost estimating and cost planning of capital building works' (referred to as NRM1) is the cornerstone of good cost management of capital building works projects - enabling more effective and accurate cost advice to be given to clients and other project team members, while facilitating better cost control.
The NRM1 Cost Management Handbook is the essential guide to how to successfully interpret and apply these rules, including explanations of how to:
   quantify building works and prepare order of cost estimates and cost plans
   use the rules as a toolkit for risk management and procurement
   analyse actual costs for the purpose of collecting benchmark data and preparing cost analyses
   capture historical cost data for future order of cost estimates and elemental cost plans
   employ the rules to aid communication
   manage the complete 'cost management cycle'
   use the elemental breakdown and cost structures, together with the coding system developed for NRM1, to effectively integrate cost management with Building Information Modelling (BIM).
In the NRM1 Cost Management Handbook, David Benge explains in clear terms how he intended NRM1 to be used in familiar quantity surveying tasks, as well as a range of activities of crucial importance for professionals in years to come. Worked examples, flow charts, diagrams, templates and check lists ensure readers of all levels will become confident and competent in the use of NRM1. This book is essential reading for anyone working with NRM1, and is the most authoritative guide to practice possible for those preparing to join the
