Details :

ICMS aims to provide global consistency in classifying, defining, measuring, analysing and presenting entire costs of construction projects at regional, state, national or international level with the goal to bring significant benefits to comparative benchmarking, option appraisal, investment decision making, and cost certainty. It covers both building works and civil engineering works. The 1st Edition covering capital construction costs was released in July 2017. The 2nd Edition (ICMS 2) having been extended to cover life cycle costs was released in September 2019. Drafting of the 3rd Edition is in progress and will include carbon metrics and marine works. ICMS are akin to the Elemental Cost Classification commonly used for building works in Hong Kong. Sr Tang will highlight the differences from our local practice and explain the rationale behind some of the new terms and new framework, levels and groups adopted by ICMS to ensure even quicker transition to ICMS.
