This Indian Standard ( Part 15 ) ( Fourth Revision ) was adopted by the Indian Standards Institution on 20 March 1987, after the draft finalized by the Civil Works Measurement Sectional Committee had been approved by the Civil Engineering Division Council. Measurement occupies a very important place in planning and execution of any civil engineering work from the time of first estimates to final completion and settlement of payments of the subject. The methods followed for measurement are not uniform and considerable differences exist between practices followed by one construction agency and another and also between various Central and State Government departments. While it is recognized that each system of measurement has to be specifically related to the administrative and financial organizations within the department responsible for work, a unification of the various systems at technical level has been accepted as very desirable, specially as it permits a wider circle of operation for civil engineering contractors and eliminates ambiguities and misunderstandings arising out of inadequate understanding of various systems followed. Among the various civil engineering items, measurement of building had been first to be taken up for standardization and this standard, having provisions relating to all building works, was first published in 1958 and then revised in 1964. In the course of usage of this standard ( IS : 1200-1964* ) by various construction agencies in the country, several clarifications and suggestions for modifications were received and, as a result of study, the Committee decided that its scope, besides being applicable to buildings, should be expanded so as to cover method of measurement applicable to civil engineering works, such as industrial project works. Since various trades are not related to one another, the Committee decided that each type of trade as given in IS : 1200-1964* be issued separately as a different part, which will be helpful to specific users in yari’ous trades. This part covering method of measurement of painting, polishing, varnishing, etc, applicable to building as well as civil engineering works was, therefore, issued as a second revision in 1968 and third revision in 1976. In the course of use of this standard in the past ten years, suggestions for improvement of some of the clauses were received. This fourth revision covers modifications in respect of painting of steel work and inclusion of painting of flush doors, besides updating the requirement so as to bring it in line with revisions of relevant Indian Standards. For the purpose of deciding whether a particular requirement of this standard is complied with, the final value, observed or calculated, expressing the result of a test or analysis, shall be rounded off in accordance with IS : 2-19601_. The number of significant places retained in the rounded off value should be the same as that of the specified value in this standard.
