Product Description

Review

′This book is an essential key text for undergraduate quantity surveying and construction management students undertaking their first foray into the delights of measurement ′ Building Engineer October 2005

From the Back Cover

The measurement of building elements is a core subject for all quantity surveying students and this classic text, first published in 1935 under the authorship of Arthur J. Willis, sets down the measurement process from first principles and covers the main building elements. It also considers computerised measurement techniques using standard descriptions.


For the tenth edition greater explanation has been added to the measured examples and a chapter on steel framing has been added. Different approaches to measurement have been included to reflect the use of schedules and spreadsheets in practice including computer data entry.

First Sentence
It is evident that if a building is divided up into its constituent parts, and the cost of each part can be estimated, an estimate can be compiled for the whole work. Read the first page

I have been working as an estimator for 5 years and thought i understood measurement. When studying for a diploma this book was indispensable for the measurement assignments.

I would recommend this book to anyone studying measurement.

I bought this book for my Quantity Surveying HNC course and its brilliant. I try not to spend out to much on books so I was advised to buy this one as it pretty much covers everything you need for the 2 years course.

Good clear information and a perfect help for coursework!

This book has helped me through a lot of assignments, and i will say i found it worth every penny. If you need to learn or brush up on some measuring skills for QS'ing then this will be a huge help.
