Utilities 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.

NRM3: Order of cost estimating and cost planning for building maintenance works, defines ‘utilities cost’ as:

‘…the cost of different fuels, water and drainage charges identified separately and reported on an annual basis. Included in the net utilities cost is any income generated from selling energy back to the national grid or generated for other usages.’
