Since publication in July 2017, the International Construction Measurement Standards (ICMS) have provided a single methodology for reporting, grouping and classifying construction project costs. In response to industry feedback following the publication of the first edition of ICMS, the ICMS Coalition have introduced and are working on a second edition which incorporates life cycle costs. The second edition will enable practitioners to classify costs across the whole project life cycle, eliminating inconsistencies and discrepancies when accounting, comparing and predicting project finances.
The Code provides a standard basis for the sub-division of costs and for measurement of basic quantities of buildings for pan-European budgeting, comparison and analysis at management level.
