RICS New Rules of Measurement (NRM) is a set of guidelines and standard practices for preparing measurement documents, such as bills of quantities, for construction projects. It was developed by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) to provide a consistent and transparent approach to construction measurement, enabling the preparation of accurate estimates and the effective management of projects.
The incorporation of NRM into Building Information Modelling (BIM) and asset information can further enhance the efficiency and accuracy of construction measurement. BIM is a digital representation of the physical and functional characteristics of a building or infrastructure, which can be used for design, construction, and operation. By integrating NRM with BIM, it is possible to create a comprehensive and consistent set of data for the project, which can be used for cost estimation, schedule management, and asset management.
Digital Engineering Works Ltd (DEWorks) is a company that specialises in the provision of NRM-based services for the construction industry. We have a team of experienced engineers and technicians who are familiar with the NRM guidelines and can assist clients with the preparation of measurement documents, including bills of quantities. In addition, we have expertise in the use of BIM and other digital tools, such as computer-aided design (CAD) software, which allows us to provide a range of NRM-based services that are tailored to the needs of our clients.
One of the key services that we offer is the integration of NRM with BIM and asset information. By combining these different sources of data, we can create a comprehensive and accurate picture of the project, which can be used for cost estimation, schedule management, and asset management. We have the skills and expertise to extract relevant information from BIM models and other digital sources and to use this information to prepare NRM-compliant measurement documents.
If you are in need of NRM-based services or any other construction-related services, please don't hesitate to contact us. We would be happy to discuss your requirements and provide a tailored solution that meets your needs.
