24% use MCESMM,
28% use CESMM (UK) 2nd & 3rd Edition and
48% use other method of measurement.

ISSUES AND CHALLENGES

Wednesday, October 15, 2014 4


SOME ISSUES IN USING SMM : 1
Piling works

SOME SAY OTHERS

3m

Pay 7m for supply and


Pay 10m for supply and 7m 7 m for driving
7 m for driving
Who can say exactly what depth
of pile to be driven??
SOME ISSUES IN USING SMM : 2
Trench excavation

Payment
based on this Or this
width?? width??

If this width,
what angle to
use??
SOME ISSUES IN USING SMM : 3
Rate of Fill
CESMM (UK) - excavation in stages
SMM2 (M) eg. excavate from 0m to 1.5m depth
from 1.5m to 3.0m depth a.s.o

MyCESMM - let the Contractor choose the appropriate method


of construction
- difficulties encountered and loss of productivity
associated with increasing depth of excavation
to be reflect in the builtup rate
- measured whole = max depth

- item description or drawing should indicate the


depth of excavation to facilitate computation of rate
by the contractor (max depth and commencing
surface stated in description) ( as per 5.20)
IMPORTED FILL

Importing fill materials occur, when

CUT (effective) FILL = -ve

DIPOSAL OF EXCAVATED EARTH

Disposing of excavated materials occur, when

CUT (effective) FILL = +ve

1.5 m3 @ RM10.00 RM15.00

Fill = RM45.00/6 m3 = RM7.50/m3


SOME ISSUES IN USING SMM : 4

Rate for Natural Hard Materials (not rock)

JKR/SPJ/1988
Specification for Roadworks published by Jabatan Kerja Raya,
Malaysia

Rock shall mean material found in ledges or masses in


its original position which would normally have to be
loosened either by blasting or pneumatic tools or, if
excavated by hand, by wedges and sledge hammers.

It shall NOT include material which can be loosened


with a track-type tractor with mounted and drawn
ripper of the following description:
PLANTS USED

Tractor Unit:
Equiptment with a minimum weight of 20 tonnes and
nett horse power rating of 200 brake horse power or
more. The tractor unit is to be in good condition and
operated by experienced personnel skilled in the use
of ripping equipment

Ripping Unit:
The ripper to be attached to the tractor shall be the
most efficient parallelogram type recommended by
the tractor or ripper manufacturer. The ripper shall
have single shank in good working condition with
sharpened cutting point.
ROCK CLASSIFICATION

EARTH (Grade V & VI) Totally weathered

ROCK (Grade III & IV) Cracks and fissures,


partially weathered

Fresh, monolithic, no fractures


ROCK (Grade I & II) or cracks
THE PROBLEM

EARTH (Grade V & VI)

SEDIMENTARY HARD MATERIAL

ROCK (Grade I & II)

Class F Earthwork ____________________________________________________________________________


THE PROBLEM

On Site:
In between the two extreme material on site
(earth and rock) we have HARD MATERIAL
which is not been clearly defined
not included in the scope of specification
which the Contractor has to excavate but not
priced accordingly
the current practice, it is usually been paid
under normal excavation i.e. excavation in
earth

Resulting in:
Claim by the Contractor due to low productivity for
excavation in natural hard material (get paid for earth
excavation instead of excavation in rock)

Class F Earthwork ____________________________________________________________________________


MyCESMM SOLUTION

REDEFINE ROCK

ROCK or ARTIFICIAL HARD MATERIAL shall be


material that requires the use of either hydraulic
rock breaker, pneumatic tools or explosives.
..(MyCESMM)

DEFINE NATURAL HARD MATERIAL

NATURAL HARD MATERIAL shall be material other


than ROCK and ARTIFICIAL HARD MATERIAL
that requires ripping and other specialised
equipment. . (MyCESMM)

The Contractor gets paid


For what he Did
Class F Earthwork __________________________________________________________________________
HARD MATERIAL/ROCK EXCAVATION
shall required one or a combination of the following
methods:

Excavation using track excavator exceeding a mass


of 44 tones and 321 BHP rating
Ripping using a tractor unit of minimum weight of 37
tones and 305 BHP rating and a ripper attached
Excavation using pneumatic tools
Open blasting
Controlled blasting

- Hard Material & Rock will have a common rate -

Class F Earthwork __________________________________________________________________________


SOME ISSUES IN USING SMM : 5

Conditions of contract

JKR 203A (Rev. 10/83)


Clause 26(b) BQ for Building Works based on SMM2
prepared by Institute of Surveyors, Malaysia
JKR 203A (2007)
Clause 26.4 BQ allowed to be based on CESMM 3 by ICE or
any Method

When disputes arise say concrete works which SMMs


governs?
Wednesday, October 15, 2014 20
SOME ISSUES IN USING SMM: 6

Too many SMMs, JKR 203A-2007 allows it but is it


practical?
Eg:
Under 1 Item - Supply, lay, including excavation, valves, thrust
blocks, etc (CESMM3)
Under 4 Items - Excavation (I), Supply & Lay including joints (2),
Valve (3), Thrust blocks (4) (Own Method)
Under 7 Items - Excavation (I), Supply (2), Lay (3), Cutting of Pipes
(4), Joints (5), Valve (6), Thrust blocks (7) (Own Method)
