Many in the construction industry, and their professional advisers, remain unaware of the scheme for compulsory rapid adjudication which has now been adopted throughout Australia outside WA and NT. Many contractors and owners are compelled to pay large claims because they have not availed themselves of the protections afforded by the legislation.

DETAILED BUILDING MEASUREMENT - VOLUME 1

This learning resource (as you will find, it's more than just a book) has been prepared to assist students and practitioners in improving their understanding of the ASMM and of the detailed measurement involved in BQ preparation. It is, however, different to other books on the topic in a number of ways. The most fundamental difference is that the building project that has been used is presented as a 3D building model rather than as a conventional set of 2D drawings.
