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.

Review:

(Reviews of the second edition)

'An essential guide for all surveying professionals' – RICS Business

'A modern classic' – QS News

From the Back Cover:

The construction industry has been undergoing rapid change in the last decade since the publication of the Latham and Egan reports, and quantity surveying professionals have been at the forefront of those challenges. Changing attitudes to procurement and partnering, and the evolving role of clients, have put the QS profession at the heart of delivering major construction projects.

Duncan Cartlidge assesses what has driven these changes, and what they mean for the profession and for the industry as a whole. He explains modern procurement methods, and assesses how much impact technology has had on construction management – and how much it might have in the future.

The first edition of this visionary book set out the future for Quantity Surveying – now that prediction has become reality, New Aspects of Quantity Surveying Practice is an even more indispensable guide to the opportunities and challenges facing the profession in the 21st Century.

Duncan Cartlidge FRICS is a procurement consultant and teaches at The Scott Sutherland School and is an online tutor for The College of Estate Management, Reading.
