NRM2 - Detailed Measurement for Building Works - RICS

Overview:

NRM2 is part of a suite of documentation developed by the RICS Quantity Surveying & Construction Professional Group Board. It replaces SMM7, which no longer reflects modern methods of construction or procurement. The main driver in publishing the NRM suite is improving and maintaining standards and is effective from 1st January 2013, with SMM7 being no longer printed or promoted. It is therefore essential that construction professionals in private practice, contracting and sub-contracting organisations involved with the preparation and submission of tender documentation become familiar with NRM2.
