SMM7: Standard Method of Measurement of Building Works, 7th edition

The SMM7: Standard Method of Measurement of Building Works, 7th edition revised 1998 provides a uniform basis for measuring building works and embodies the essentials of good practice.

Bills of quantities shall fully describe and accurately represent the quantity and quality of the works to be carried out. More detailed information than is required by these rules shall be given where necessary in order to define the precise nature and extent of the required work. The rules apply to measurement of proposed work and executed work.

The 7th edition of the Standard Method of Measurement was published in 1988. Following experience in use and in consequence of queries raised minor amendments were made in September 1988, May 1989 and May 1992. In 1998 further changes were required.
