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 --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From the Back Cover

The measurement of building elements is a core subject for all quantity surveying students. Willis′s Elements of Quantity Surveying explains from first principles the measurement process of all the key building elements, and contains many illustrative examples. The 11th edition maintains that approach. The book opens with an over–view of the need for measurement and the differing rules governing the measurement at different stages of the design or project cycle. The main focus of the book remains the detailed measurement of building elements using the rules from SMM7, but it recognises the publication of the New Rules of Measurement: Order of Cost Estimating and Elemental Cost Planning , by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) and covers its relationship with the rules for measurement of building works when producing bills of quantities for tendering purposes. The book concludes with guidance on how to use the data collected during the measurement process to create the tender documents. This classic text, first published in 1935 under the authorship of Arthur J. Willis, quickly established itself as a landmark in building textbooks and was published in subsequent editions under the authorship of two further generations of the Willis family. In this 11th edition the hallmarks of the first edition – clarity and practicality – have been maintained while ensuring the book is fully up to date, providing the student of quantity surveying with a first class introduction to the subject. Also available from Wiley–Blackwell Willis′s Practice and Procedure for the Quantity Surveyor 12e Allan Ashworth and Keith Hogg Paperback 9781405145787 Ferry and Brandon′s Cost Planning of Buildings 8e Richard Kirkham Paperback 9781405130707

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!
