Work package contractor
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 a ‘work package contractor’ as:
‘…a specialist contractor who undertakes particular identifiable aspects of maintenance or replacement work, e.g. maintenance of non-specialist mechanical and electrical engineering services; maintenance of specialist installations (such as building management systems and fuel installations); maintenance of building fabric, structure, finishes and fittings, furnishings and equipment; landscaping management and grounds maintenance works; or labour only. Depending on the contract strategy, works contractors can be employed directly by the Employer, or by the Maintenance Contractor.’
