The world is rapidly evolving day by day and, thus, so are the standards and practices of quantity surveying (QS) professionals. With new technologies streamlining daily QS tasks (e.g. auto-generation of estimates, tenders, and BOQs) and environmentally-sustainable techniques increasingly being incorporated into construction processes, manual methodologies are fast becoming a thing of the past. How, then, can QS professionals keep up with technological advances in the digital age?

 

The objective of this CPD event is to provide comprehensive insight into these critical questions facing QS professionals in the industry today and what they can do to stay ahead in the game. Learn how to avoid the potential pitfalls QS professionals will often come across when implementing BIM and find out what’s next for quantity surveying as we move into the future. If you want to make sure you’re up to date with what’s happening in the QS world, ensure you don’t miss this event!
