Description

The role of the quantity surveyor, more than that of any other construction professional, is a rapidly changing one. With the falling demand for new building and the resulting drop in workload, quantity surveyors have had to broaden their expertise and look to fields other than those they have traditionally worked in. Students of quantity surveying are now faced with a wide range of topics to absorb, and the newly qualified practitioner needs to show a positive approach to seeking new work, perhaps even in fresh areas. This major revised edition reflects these developments. It deals with the changes affecting private practice and includes a completely new chapter on the quantity surveyor's work within a construction firm. The growing importance of computer's is dealt with throughout, and there is a new chapter on project management.
