FOREWORD

The Philippine Standard Method of Measurement of Building Works was first published in
1997.

The Second and Third Edition were published in 1999 and 2007, respectively.

The Fourth Edition adopted the use of MasterFormat 2004 and was published in 2009.

The Fifth Edition incorporated comments and suggestions made to the fourth edition and
published in 2011.

The Sixth and Seventh Editions have integrated the new corporate brand of Langdon &
Seah and some updates on tabulated rules for the preparation of Bill of Quantities.

The Philippine Standard Method of Measurement of Building Works has been utilized on
a number of major construction and development projects throughout the Philippines and
to that extent has become an industry standard.

Seventh Edition
Preface
In recent years Quantity Surveying has become a well recognised and increasingly important profession in the construction industry in the Philippines.
With Bills of Quantities being used more extensively for tender documentation it has become necessary to produce a local Standard Method of
Measurement with the following aims in mind:

(a) To produce a method of measurement which is based on local construction techniques and using local terminology

(b) To produce a method of measurement based on local estimating methods

(c) To produce a method of measurement that is consistent and easy to understand

This method of measurement is related to the published "MasterFormat, 2004 Edition Numbers and Titles for the Construction Industry" produced by
the Construction Specifications Institute (Canada) and Construction Specifications Canada. This will make a move towards greater uniformity in the
production of information on construction projects making it more clearly and easily understood by everyone involved.

The launch of PSMM hopes that estimators will be able to price tenders accurately and with confidence and the administration of contracts will
become easier. The PSMM was first published in March 1997, the second in September 1999 and the third in August 2007. The fourth edition adopted
the used of 49 division of MasterFormat, 2004 and sixdigit numbering system in place of the familiar five-digit system. Some titles were renamed
but with essentially the same scope as Masterformat, 1995. The fifth edition incorporated comments and suggestion made to the fourth edition.
The sixth and seventh editions integrated the corporate brand of Langdon & Seah and some updates on tabulated rules for the preparation of Bill of
Quantities.

In an effort to continuously improve this PSMM we welcome comments and suggestion from clients, consultants, contractors and interested bodies.

This PSMM is produced exclusively for use by Langdon & Seah and expressed written permission should be obtained from us should any third party
wish to make use of it.

General Principles 2.2
Horizontal lines divide the classification tables and supplementary rules

1.1 Classification Tables


This Standard Method of Measurement provides a uniform basis for

measuring building works and embodies the essentials of good practice. Bills
In referring to columns in classification tables, the measurement unit
of Quantities shall fully describe and accurately represent the quantity and
quality of the works to be carried out. More detailed information than is column has been disregarded. The remaining four columns are herein
