CRA updates Standard Method of Measurement for Concrete Repair

The Concrete Repair Association (CRA), one of the Associations that comprise the Structural Concrete Alliance, has released a new edition of its Standard Method of Measurement for Concrete Repair. The document, now in its third edition, has been fully revised to reflect new and current methods, practices and standards. 

The Standard Method of Measurement for Concrete Repair aims to assist the origination of clearer Bills of Quantities for concrete repair work by providing a uniform basis for measuring concrete repair and for fully itemising all aspects of the work involved.

It provides notes on repair measurement and a specimen Bill of Quantities. The method of measurement includes detailed instructions for : General, Trials and Routine Testing; Surface Cleaning;  Survey; Repairs; Crack Repairs; Pore/Blow Hole Fillers; Levelling Mortars/Fairing Coats; Surface Coatings and Treatments;  and Resin Injection. It also itemises time-related elements such as provision of access and site facilities.

The Standard Method of Measurement has proved of enormous benefit to construction professionals since the first edition was published in 1990. Being one of the CRA’s most popular technical documents, thousands of copies have been downloaded from the CRA website or provided in hard copy format. 

The new third edition of the document is available for free download from the CRA website,
