  • Amount of construction work

Before comparing the methods used to measure construction work with those used in construction work, it is necessary to take into account the structure and nature of construction work in order to fully understand and understand the need for different methods of measurement. working on these final tasks. This comparison mainly involves the use and guidance of quantitative researchers, most of whom are interested in measuring buildings. Civil engineering covers many different fields, some of which are large. Cut hard and on edge; large, concrete structures such as building structures in power plants, reservoirs, seawalls, bridges and cooling towers; steel structures are built large; testing of heavy foundations; piers, bars and dry docks; long pipelines, tunnels and railways are the subject of construction contracts. Civil works can also include construction projects in concrete, steel, brick and woodwork, and general civil works such as roads, bridges, sewers, waste treatment works. Aqueducts, reservoirs, water towers, protection works of rivers and seas, landfills, marinas and swimming pools are carried out on behalf of various companies, as described in Rijkswaterstaat. 7 These jobs require significant skill, expertise and technical knowledge in design and construction. The use of new materials and techniques is constantly changing the nature and construction methods used in these projects, and the growth and scale of these works require great knowledge and skill to measure and value them. Some activities involve uncertainties, such as excavation for deep foundations or laying underground pipes under highly variable conditions.Many construction projects are carried out on river banks or seashores and in sea-level wetlands, making the work even more complex and difficult. For these reasons, it is important to use a measurement code specifically suitable for this type of work. Due to the size of many structures, it is recommended that the approved measurement code be simple to avoid measuringartifacts and small objects, some of which were performed individually during the measurement of structures before the release of SMM7. 6 The word ‘labor’ refers to relatively minor work involving labour, excluding tools, such as making the edges of bricks or drilling holes in wood. There is also more uncertainty due to the nature of the work than in construction work, and the measurement method needs to be flexible enough to take into account differences in construction methods used and changes made during construction. Construction works required by the nature of the location. The main function of the overall project is to be able to obtain costs for the project in a uniform manner and exact parameters cannot always be prepared at the ‘flying’ stage. The amount must always be accurate as the drawings and other data permit, but may be varied upon measurement of the work completed on siteand the work will be valued as done, at the price paid or estimated. It is usually a ‘weighing and valuation contract’. A significant amount of temporary labor may be required during the construction of the structures and the contractor will have to cover the costs of these works with a portion of the funds..
