Measurement 2 develops greater understanding of measurement principles and practices, especially in commercial and industrial construction. Topics include preliminaries, trade preambles, measurement and billing of quantities for a wide range of trades and more complex building works and services and provide experience in the use of computer software in preparing construction documentation. Bid development and pricing strategies are also investigated in detail.
