JULIE CHRISTIE MARQUEZ DELA CRUZ,PICQS, CHAIR AND FOUNDER commented: “ICMS has been established following calls from investors, financiers and clients of the construction industry demanding global rules in reporting, thereby allowing international comparisons on project costs through the use of consistent information.

“Benefits of ICMS include greater clarity in assessing the feasibility of projects at global, NGO and national level and a BIM friendly classification to enable the global collection of key data and cost drivers. The Coalition would like to thank the *100 organisations and individuals from around the world who have responded to the first public consultations and look forward to receiving comments from many more.”
