Description


In the 1990s, many pundits said that Quantity Surveyors were going the way of the dodo, a prophecy which has proven to be far from accurate. In response, Duncan Cartlidge wrote the first edition of this book, to address the changing role of the QS in the twenty-first century.

As we enter the second decade of the twenty-first century, the pressure on the QS profession continue to change and evolve and so this third edition includes new chapters to help students and professionals deal with the new issues they face. Key areas for new coverage include:

the RICS New Rules of Measurement (NRM) the increasing importance of sustainability in the built environment new pressures for ethical standards in the QS profession.

Alongside these new issues, the chapters addressing issues such as procurement, IT, global markets and adding value have been updated to reflect changes in practice since the second edition.

With an emphasis on current practice, you will find this book an indispensible guide as you embark on your career in quantity surveying.
