Annual equivalent cost

The New Rules of Measurement (NRM) are published by the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors (RICS). They provide a standard set of measurement rules for estimating, cost planning, procurement and whole-life costing for construction projects.

According to NRM3: Order of cost estimating and cost planning for building maintenance works, the term ‘annual equivalent cost’ refers to:

‘…the uniform annual amount equivalent to the project’s real costs, taking into account the time value of money throughout the period of analysis.’
