MyCESMM2 replaces the current Malaysian Standard Method for Measurement of Civil Engineering construction covering a wider range of civil engineering works. It is expected to contribute towards delivering cost effective civil engineering projects through the adoption of best practices in the preparation of the bills of quantities (BQ). The implementation of MyCESMM2 would eliminate discrepancies and ambiguities in the BQ, facilitate better understanding of the nature of work to be done and thus reduce potential claims and dispute arising during the construction stage. This MyCESMM2 is the mandatory course for all those who are involved in all engineering works.


This course consist lectures, workshops, and presentations on important MyCESMM2 matters in the following manners:


  • Standard Method of Measurement (SMM) in relation to preparation of Bill of Quantities (BQ), function of BQ, why standardised BQ is needed, SMM in construction procurement without SMM, benefits of standardizing the BQ for civil engineering works using MyCESMM
  • Introduction to CESMM (2003), MyCESMM (2011) and MyCESMM2 (2018)
  • Principles of MyCESMM; Definitions, general principle, application of the work classifications, coding & numbering of items, preparation of BQ, completion, pricing and use of BQ, and finally method-related charges
  • Introduction to selected work classes; General Items, Roads & Pavings and Earthworks
  • For detail items, to cover work classifications of Piling, Concrete, Piling and Drainage works


  • Prepare BQ description by extraction from Library of Standard BQ description for MyCESMM2
  • Taking off, Abstracting nd prepare BQ in-line with MyCESMM2


  • Participants working in groups will be presenting their workshop task and to be compared to Trainer’s model answers
