International Measurement Standards in Construction, Property and Land Sectors

The purpose of International Measurement Standards is to harmonise measurement and cost reporting across the globe to help with investment decision making and clarity regarding building sizes and quantities. The Society has signed up to the global coalition to promote these standards. 

These standards provide a single methodology for reporting, grouping and classifying project costs. Our development and enforcement of leading international standards protect consumers and businesses by ensuring the utmost level of professionalism is employed across the built and natural environment.
