General Arrangement and Contents of Civil Engineering Bills of Quantities

  • Ivor H. Seeley
Chapter

Abstract

The Civil Engineering Standard Method of Measurement1 defines a ‘Bill of Quantities’ as a list of items giving brief identifying descriptions and estimated quantities of the work comprised on a Contract (1.7). (Perhaps the word ‘concise’ would be better substituted for ‘brief’.) All references in brackets refer to paragraphs in the Civil Engineering Standard Method of Measurement (paragraphs being the terminology used in the CESMM).
