Preface to Willis's Elements of Quantity Surveying 12th Edition by Sandra Lee, William Trench, Andrew Willis PDF:
This book was first published in 1935, and in the preface to that first edition it stated that it was intended ‘to be a book giving everything in its  simplest form and to assist a student to a good grounding in first principles’. Each successive edition has been brought up to date; however, we have always striven to maintain the original guiding principles, which are as relevant today as they were 70 years ago. Whilst the use of the traditional bill of quantities continues to decline and today is only one of a variety of options open to the industry for the procurement of construction contracts, nevertheless, the skills of measurement are still very much required in some form or another under most procurement routes. 

This edition recognises the publication by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) of the second volume of the New Rules of Measurement – Detailed Measurement for Building Works (NRM2), and the text has been updated accordingly. The basic structure of the book generally follows that of previous editions, setting down the measurement process from first principles and assuming the reader is coming fresh to the subject. 

Whilst it is recognised that modern computerised measurement techniques utilising standard descriptions might appear far removed from traditional taking-off, it is only by fully grasping such basic principles of measurement that they can be adapted and applied to alternative systems. It is for this reason that the examples continue to be written in traditional form. 

The book opens with an overview of the need for measurement and the differing rules governing measurement at different stages of the design or project cycle. The main focus of the book remains on the detailed measurement of elements of a building using the rules from NRM2 and concludes with guidance on how to use the data collected during the measurement process to create the tender documents.

Whilst the role of the quantity surveyor is subject to continual change, we hope that students will find this book as useful as their predecessors have.
