Laxton's 'smm' Building Price Book is structured generally in accordance with the seventh edition revised 1998 of the standard Method of Measurement of Building Works (SMM7) which follows the format of the "Common Arrangement of Work Sections for Building Works 2nd edition" published to encourage project information to be co-ordinated throughout the industry.  The detailed rates can easily be applied to items measured in accordance with the New Rules of Measurement as published by RICS.

The pricing data has been prepared from "first principles" with the results detailed indicating labour allowances and the cost of materials required for each item of work.
